I noticed yesterday it has a very slow leaking around the oil drain plug the plug is in there tight. Is there anything I can use on the plug to stop the leak ?

Cut the old seal off of the drain plug and put in a new one.I bought a kit with a bunch of seals in it from Autozone a couple years ago for around $8.I used one of the plastic ones because of the rather rough casting of the pan and it worked very well.I did have to cut the inner plastic tabs out but it sealed it up really nice.

Also, most of these plugs are NPT thread, which is a tapered thread. It seals by wedging the two surfaces/threads together. A new plug may give you a better seal...
