Mine is a 2020 Texas Edition with tow package. I wish I could have taken more time and taken pictures, and or had a micrometer. I pulled the getto micrometer out though and set an adjustable wrench on the Fumoto showing about 12mm diameter and then moved to my stock plug and it seemed like it was about a 10mm, but certainly smaller diameter. I'm perplexed. I had about 30 minutes or less before I had to get to work so I just had to throw the stock back in and now I gotta wait another 4 months or so to even investigate further. Absolutely everything that I have found online so far says M12 1.75 so I just don't know my next stepWhat year do you have? That's strange because my Valvomax is M12-1.75 (Just checked my order history) and I have the tow package on my 2019 and had no issues.
Really.........many of these service techs are only good at writing RO's and lack the knowledge of mechanical skills. I ask mine pertent questions and left him dumb founded. His background before Writing RO's was office equipment repair a year prior to being a Service Writer. My thought on the drain valve is liability. If it is not a factory part they get quicey and give some bad advice without doing any research.
Fumoto F107N with LC-10 lever clip FN-Series Engine. This is the one I got for my 2019 Exp. The Ford dealer removed it and claimed it may cost oil compression issue craps lol.
I bought one of those and it will not work with this motor. The dipstick does not go to the bottom of the pan, it stops in a screen protected side cavity that will leaver about 2 quarts of oil in the pan. It's a bummer. works fine for my other 2 cars.Have you ever considered using something like a Mityvac to suck the oil out through the dip stick? Very easy to use and no crawling underneath. First time I used it I pulled the drain plug to see what was left and it was just drips. Flip a valve lever and pump the fluid into another container to dispose of or take the unit into the auto parts store and pump into their container.
This begs the question: who is doing the oil change on the vehicle?… My thought on the drain valve is liability. If it is not a factory part they get quicey and give some bad advice without doing any research.
