Might be worth mentioning that you should torque the drain bolt if you can. I don't remember the torque rating off the top of my head. I usually do around 30ft-lbs.

Does the drain use a replaceable washer ? Or a "built-in" to the plug washer like the drain plug on my 1998 B4000 (Ranger cousin) ?

I'm wondering if you could just leave it off without any consequent ill effects
I was just looking at things yesterday when I did my second oil change. There are some pretty fragile hoses and things down pretty low so I would strongly recommend keeping the shield in place between oil changes.

The Kind of posts I like. Well done. The plastic skid panel looks like it has aero and cooling purpose to it. Havn't looked closer than from 10ft from the front of car but looks like there is some induction going on maybe for turbo?
When the 2.0T explodes will ford replace your engine when you say you do your own oil changes and you show them your steps and your mobile 1 oil was supposed to be ford brand oil and then ask you for 6000$????????serious question. does DITY void warranty?

Now a days theres not much advantage in price it seems, to DITY. The dealer counts on telling you "you need an alignment" and they get them WRENCH hrs to bill you. What do you think you saved in TIME & MONEY?

Great write up!

I have a tip I'd like to offer to others. I usually open the drain bolt AND THEN remove the oil cap.

Doing it this way kind of keeps the flow of oil from instantly pouring out. Think of putting your finger on a straw and "lifting the liquid." As soon as you remove the cap/finger the liquid shoots out.
ARI and mn_escape like this.
