Should not have to drain any oil, have you searched around for the process? I can't recall where I found it now, but a quick google search should get you something. You will need the correct size torx with a longer shank to get it in there. Also, there are different torque specs depending on the year.

Here is one such link:

Depending on the year, your oil rail may be one of two styles. The newer setup uses the dummy plugs which are known to be an issue. If you have that one, look into the updated versions while you are in there.

I got one right next to the one you show, forgetaboutit. Fix when you have to go back in there. No leaks on mine.

The oil doesn't drip on the upper side, it runs off, so no leaks. Did you overtorque it?

Honestly, thats how it was when I got it, some knucklehead did. It annoys me, i'm gonna fix it when I replace my oil cooler.
