Looking for information on the engine oil drain plug. Does anyone have a part # or specs? I'd like to buy a Fumoto valve...has anyone done so? If so, which one? I installed the full skid plate kit from RCI and one of the Fumoto valves that you can stick a hose on would be very helpful. I've checked all the OEM Ford sites and there is no listing. Fumoto's website only goes up to 2017. The only quick change oil drain plug I've found for the 2018's is a billet replacement for the plastic plugs in the gas trucks.

Have you tried talking to someone at Fumoto yet? Their number (from website) is: (800) 918-3406

Interesting indeed that they do not show any support year newer than 2017 on their website.

I sure have. They state that they're positive they'll have one that will fit but that I need to come up with the specs for the drain plug so they can cross reference. It was pretty poor customer service, but by all accounts they make a fantastic product.

F-106, M14 x 1.5. I have a 4 x 4 and keeping the carpet shield there is no room for a nipple, so I went their most compact version. Plug is on the flat bottom of the oil pan and pours straight down anyway so hose wouldn't do me much use.


If you look up a 2014 Ford Expedition 5.4L on Fumoto site, there are several options with nipples.

Before everyone goes and buys one...F-106 14x1.5 didn’t fit mine. Changed the oil this afternoon and planned to install the Fumoto, but it didn’t thread in. I actually tried 2 because I bought the one with the nipple and one without and was going to install the one that fit best. Tried both, neither worked, and now they’re covered in oil and not returnable. I had to re-install the old drain plug.

You are $hitting me!?? I confirmed with Ford and they said it was the right one! WTF, is there Parts Catalog that messed up? The drain plug part # from Ford is M14 x 1.5...according to them. It also fits 2017 Land Rover 3.0 diesel



**** that sucks, sorry. But thanks for the bad news, was planning oil service this weekend.



Only consultation, if there is one, is that size is a very popular size for Ford, including new 6.7 Super Duty diesel (have 2 F-106 on 2017 Ford diesels) and late model 5.4L Ford and maybe you can sell to friends or use on something else.



Is it too big/small or just wrong thread pitch?

I just went to Ford Parts website. There are two part numbers, #6730, one is $2.48, the other $7.77, but SAME part number? One shares the application with 3.5L, which is smaller thread, M12 x 1.25.


Could this be the confusion, a parts catalog mix up?

Appears to be the right size, but wrong thread pitch.
