Thanks for the heads up on the filter. I bought two the last time and this was on the shelf. I get them from dieselfiltersonline.com and sure enough, the part number is updated with the S.Always enjoy your videos.
I think that is an older generation filter.
New filters are FL2051S.
That is a mess doing the filter that way.
I always punch a hole and go do something else for a while. Much cleaner.
I personally don't like the valves.
Always oil left in there.
Someone can be a real jerk and open that valve on you...... that will lead to trouble quickly if you don't catch it.
Yeah, it's just a gadget. The thing I hate the most is emptying the 13 quarts from the drain pan into the oil jugs for recycling. It's always a balancing act pouring the old oil into a funnel while trying not to tip over the jug or overfill it. I'll store up a few milk jugs and just fill those with the hose from the valve. Should be drip free and no messing with the full drain pan. That's a plus.I use the valves for my cooling system to drain the block but I have never trusted them on oil for all of the reasons above. I have an extra socket for the drain plug sitting off to the side on the tool box and another one for the filter (6.0L) and honestly, climbing under there, catching the oil, disposing of the oil, that's the PITA, IMO, not opening one bolt. I'm still on the original drain plug with maybe once or twice replacing the washer in 10 years... I just don't see that the valve is going to "improve the experience" that much". I don't know about the newer engines but the drain plug on the 6.0L is dead center in the bottom of the pan, they use a very low profile plug from the factory, I think that's for a reason... a protruding valve is just begging to get knocked by debris on the road or off road driving.
This is what improved my world more than anything... especially a few years ago when I was dropping the oil every two weeks while covering a ton of miles for a few months. I let the fuel filters leak into it when changing them as well. I never lose a drain plug into the oil anymore, I almost get no oil on my glove while opening it fast and letting the plug fall onto the screen. And yes, it does fit under my stock height truck on 18's no problem while on the ground.
Redline RE10G 10 Gallon Rolling Oil Drainage Change Waste Pan Tank Steel Drain | eBay
I have a spot out of the way in the garage, I only drain it about every 4 oil changes or so. I set the funnel on the 5gal pail, lift the screen off the pan and bail the oil out with an old plastic juice jug, dump it in the funnel. I have had one of those stupid little round black plastic ones fold in half like a sandwich when I went to move it from the hot oil and being full right to the brim...that was not a good day.. never again.
If your changing you oil twice a year, probably doesn't make sense though.
I had a 2011 also and thought that yellow poly drain plug was the bomb. Most folks were wigged out by the plastic oil pan so Ford abandoned it. There never was a recall on it.The faster it drains, the more residual is left on the pan wall. Slower drain means more complete drain
great video. My 2011 doesn't have that type of pan, though. I have a "cam lock" o-ring. I've heard there was a recall on those pans, and I thought mine had been replaced, but maybe not?
I had the "fumoto" valve on my 7.3
loved it. I may change to this later configuration at next oil change if all I have to do is pull those dozen bolts and reinstall with a rubber seal. The cam lock deal is cool, but I'd prefer the fumoto.
Not interested in pulling the engine like I had to do twice with a rusted-out oil pan on the 7.3
Dang, that was an Oh Crap moment. But take heart, it's comments like yours that made sure I made that point. I hate even a few drips and can only image about 10 quarts going over the rim. That plastic one that I'm using is a 5 gallon capacity with curved-in top edge so it does nicely.Given my bad experience with the 7.3 pans ... I think a plastic one would be better anyway ... TIC.
I laughed hard, though, when you mentioned the flow rate. The first time I did this, I had no idea. I had the VERY same catch pan you flashed into your video ...
I testify ... what you say is TRUTH! Oil was EVERYWHERE! I now have an old school open top galvanized pan ... 15 quart capacity (which the dealership overfilled last time) Now I'm an RLI oil guy.
oil analysis pending.
