Oil drain plug torque

What’s the torque on the oil drain plug?

I don't know the value but I always make sure I can finger thread it in as far as possible, then at the bottom a good tug to snug it down. Never had any leaks.

10-4 I paint marked the OEM location and then put it back to that spot with a slightly more torque to it.

I love fords new drain plug design, the integrated gasket always seem to be the best in my years of car maintenance. Aluminum washer's are also pretty darn good.

Now on to my complaint. Why is the plug on the side??? OMG put the dang plug on the bottom, that way oil doesn't blast out hitting the rear axle. Also I'm not really a fan of the old school tractor engine oil spin on cartridge. I loved my 6.0 engine bay oil drop in cartridge, no mess and no crawling under there. Finally, the oil fill neck seems way to short, get that pig like a stack sticking out of the hood.

anywas, first oil change was pretty easy. Glad I got some good valvoline premium blue extreme 5w40 in her before the big cold snap starts next week.

100% spot on there. I'm with you.

Try turning the motor off next time. It will only splash on the cross member....LMAO

Yep. I use either a filter or oil container to help control the flow.

at least the oil cartridge is in the vertical position. I'm used to changing Jeep oil filters. Them morons did a cartridge in the horizontal, huge mess all the time. I think next time I'm going to poke a hole in the 4 gallon oil filter so its not so messy.

But seriously, who's idea was it to put the plug on the side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, my 6.0 could fit a 5 gallon bucket right under the oil pan, lol. This new 6.7 could but them dang 4 link suspension arms hang down lower than the chevy duramax DEF fluid tanks. Ugg, had to grab a storage bin cause I don't have a oil drain pan big enough to hold 13 quarts at mach 6.

glad to see I'm not the only one that crawled under there and was like....................ahhhhh what.

How soft we have become
Grab a 3.5 gallon bucket instead of a 5. They typically use the same lids. Fits under a stock 4wd Super Duty. I use a VP race fuel can but that is because I want to get my moneys worth at $27 / gal.
Toss the plug in the parts bin and install a 90 degree Fumoto valve. It'll keep the oil from hitting your rear axle.

Hmm... They do not have one listed for the 2017+ diesel. Bet it is the same, but you would have to verify the drain plug is a 14 x 1.5mm thread.

I can confirm the F106N from Fumoto works on our 2017 F550 and our 2018 F350. The "N" is for the hose nipple, so the F106 works too if you don't want to hook a hose up to it. We use the hose to be cleaner. Bought them on Amazon.

If you know anybody with a cat they may have a few of these... Holds 5-1/2 gallons and will slide under if you pull the front up onto a 2x6.
