Lots of oil change threads but I added this as there is a little new news out there. First, Fumoto has a new drain valve for our engine- The old one is still good to go but the new one is F137. Here is the Fumoto description of the F137: "
F-137: STANDARD VALVE WITH 12MM-1.75 THREADS WITH LEVER CLIP
Our new Fumoto Standard Valves have a larger body with a 60% larger drain, allowing for faster oil changes compared to the smaller body models for the same thread size.
Standard valves are for users who don’t need a hose connection, want to minimize a profile, or have a drain port on the bottom of the oil pan. If you are not sure which valve to choose, our article How to choose a Fumoto valve for your vehicle? will help.

Mine came with the nipple.

Also I see Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck full synthetic oil now has a CK-4 rating so it should be good to go for severe duty in our trucks. Also they have a rebate program going on, so I bought 2 4 qt jugs and apparently qualify for a $24 rebate!

From their site:

Now the long wait till they approve it.

May get around to changing the oil tomorrow, May not. Retirement is good.

The mobil 1 still doesn't meet WSS-M2C171-F1 which is the recommended spec for severe duty service. This is because it is also suitable for gasoline and mixed fleet use, which means it has less phosphorous in it as an anti wear additive than ford likes to see in its diesels. Phosphorous fouls gasoline catalytic converters which is why they lower it to meet the gasoline SN spec. Stick with oil that meets the above and you're good to go.

Ordered my Fumoto valve today. What are you guys doing with the Diaper, trimming or removing it?

I just took a door knob hole drill (about 2") and cut the hole. A sharp knife should work as well.

Question for those changing your own oil. Does the Fordpass service due data update automatically when you reset the Oil Life Indicator or does Fordpass only update when the work is done by teh dealer.

With my Ecoboost I just got the dealer to change oil as they only charged $23 when i supplied teh oil. When I did teh same with my PS they charged $55! So, especially as it is 50 mile round trip I will be doing it myself this time!

The Ford Pass app will update when either you or the dealer reset the oil life indicator.
