That's because it only goes in one way up, if I remember correctly. Could be wrong been a while since I did mine.

Next time you change the oil, put a piece of aluminum foil over the exhaust where you see the oil has drained on it. This makes clean up significantly easier.

that's a good idea to tap it for the next time you do an oil change. but before you can tap it, how did you get it off in the first place?
