Don"t know. I"ve never replaced mine... Ns don"t even know if I have one on this auto which is not ideal. I"ll have actually to check next time I drainpipe the ATF.The component number for the engine oil drain plug crush washer is 21513-23001. Pretty sure it won"t fit over the transmission drainpipe plug though.
