In an abundance of caution, I used a copper crush washer on the oil drain plug. When it came time to change the oil again the crush washer had become an immovable object, nor could I pry a screwdriver between it and the bolt head. I installed it with the old crush washer still on it.
Do I really need to use a crush washer? Any advice on removing it?

Nope, and unless it does I'm not going to mess with it. Just the excuse I need to buy a sturdy vice from Horrible Freight and give that piece of copper a lickin' I'm thinking hacksaw or chisel & hammer.

You have to use crush washers. Ive had good luck removing old ones with a wood chisel. It will drip if you dont use one.
