Plastic oil pan and oil change question
I am a new guy to the 6.7. I changed my oil for the first time last night. To my surprise the oil pan is plastic as is the drain plug. Of course I am used to all metal parts.
That drain plug seems like it isn't held in there by much, just a little more than a quarter turn from off to shut.
Plus the drain hole is huge, the oil comes out like a fire hose.
Does anyone have a fix or an idea on how to prevent the oil from going everywhere when the plug is removed? I use a standard flat oil collection container. I could engineer osmething, but wanted to know if the forum had anything already established.
I went to qwikvalve.com to get their ball valve setup(I have used these in the past and they work well) but there is not one made for the 6.7.
Any help would be appreciated.
