engine oil drain plug

For those who have changed their oil, is it the regular 14mm thread plug Ford uses on many models? If so, is it magnetic? Also, is there room for a Fumoto valve under the skid plate cover on a 4 x 4? Thanks in advance.

I have done it a couple times and I believe it is 15mm socket. There is not much room. I cut out a hole under the drain plug so I dont have to remove the shield next time. That is the only pain in the ass for the whole process.

Several members on F150forum.com report completely removing the cloth/carpet shield whatever it is and never looking back.

I put mine back in place after first oil change. But I had the young guys at the car wash do it while I supervised.

It sounds like the common plug. It also sounds fun to change...

Carpet shield can stay until it starts falling apart then off it goes. It's not difficult task anyways.

Yeah, removing the carpet cover is not difficult, just a pain in the ass cause you are crawling around under the truck.

Took the kids at the car wash less than 10 minutes to do mine. Cant be that hard. I watched them, they put it all back togather right.
