First Maintenance

Broke 4,300 miles today and gave the truck it's first everything...

Oil change (Wix filter, Castrol Tection 15W-40 oil)
Fumoto Valve N Series drain plug
DEF fluid top-off (computer says I was below half)
Drained the water separator filter

Gotta say, I love working on this truck!

I don't mind the OEM drain plug...but I do mind the 8 foot stream of oil that shoots out at high pressure! The Fumoto N-Series has a hose nipple, so I can plug a hose onto the valve and drain straight into my drain pan...no mess, no oil on my hands, no high pressure spray!

Just set a 5 gallon bucket under the oil drain and it catches that high pressure stream and you are drained in nothing flat. Never had a problem catching it.

Did you have to take a piece off of the pan to put the Fumoto on? I noticed the valve they sent has a regular thread but the factory plug is like a 1/4 turn.

My pan is metal and my drain plug was normal, not 1/4 turn.
