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...:frown2:

Carpet shield can stay until it starts falling apart then off it goes. It's not difficult task anyways. :wink2:

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.
