Similarly to the drain plug, people go to Jiffy Lube even some Honda places and they over tighten the oil filter and the drain plug. A Volkswagen, I change the oil on, the customer brought it to a Jiffy Lube for a while and I had to put a whole new pan in. Drain plug should be tight but not over the top, the threads were torn out of this Volkswagen oil pan.
