I recently performed an oil change on my 2.7L and managed to take out/drain close to 6 and 3/4 quarts of oil. The oil level readings on my dipstick has always been consistently in the nominal mark ("B") so I do not believe it was overfilled from factory. I put ~6 and 3/4 of quarts back in and the dipstick indicates that my oil level is nominal.

Any chance you can take a photo of your dip stick showing the part number and post it on this thread for comparison? Also when was your Bronco built?

I use the UPR plug on my GT350. It has 10 quarts of oil and my first oil change the flow from that huge hole shot back a good 2 feet behind where I had the oil pan set up. I love the new plug. One very important point, when the threads are all the way OUT, the valve is CLOSED. You screw the threads in to begin the flow. I left mine open the first time with only the rubber cap on. Did two track days and still did not leak a drop.....

CORRECTION to my last post and ALARMING

I guesstimated my initial oil withdrawn from the engine so this morning I decided to measure it the best I could ... I poured all of the oil i had extracted into an extraction pump i use for different things around my home.

look at these pictures and tell me if you're not fkng shocked.

IMG-8021.jpg


there is more than 7.5 Liters of oil in there .... about 7.93 Quarts !!!!!

this means that either the Dealership or the Factory overfilled the OIL and I have been driving around for 1600 plus miles with ECXCESS ENGINE OIL !!!!

WTF!!!!
Idk the possibility of a factory overfill, but I could see some monkey at a dealership pulling every 2.7l in for pdi, checking the oil without waiting, and saying every one of these damn 2.7s are low on oil and topping them off.

So, for the Ronin plug, you remove the gold cap and thread in a drain nipple? Then the oil flows out? Did you bother to take the whole drain plug out to clean off the magnet? What ID tubing did you attach to the nipple?
I can’t remember the internal diameter I used but it is listed on their site. I did zip tie it on and it makes it easier to put on and to stop the flow when just trying to drain a small amount.

Thank you, I found it.... A 5/8" ID hose can be attached to the nipple of the drain tool if desired, but not necessary.

Question on the Ronin Plug, does it lock into place when seated or does the wave spring hold it in place? I sent a message to the guys at Ronin and got no response.

I have a similar extraction tool. Is it effective at getting most of the oil out of the 2.7? I did an oil change with it on my 2.3 and I felt like it got most of it out but when I went to replace the oil it was a quart shy of taking the recommended spec. I know there is another thread on this just trying to determine if I use the extractor or get a quick drain plug. Since the filter is on top of the engine I thought it would be pretty awesome to never have to get under the car to change the oil.

Look at the picture of the dipstick/oil pan in the first post. 2.7L has a dipstick chamber that blocks direct access to the pan. No go on using an extractor.

That sucks but thank you! I did not pickup on that in your initial post. So no reprieve for my knees and back 😂

I used the extractor first .... got about 1.5 liters out .... so no go on the extractor.

BUT, if you have an over fill situation like I did, you can use it to get the extra oil out. In my case it was about 1/2 a quart.

Isn't that kind of extractor supposed to suck? Isn't that how it works?

this is what an overfilled oil level looks like in a 2.7
9179C4AD-9F66-41A1-9043-B27621BB683E.jpeg

Notice the oil is past the second hole up into the twisted part.

This is what a 2.7 dip stick looks like empty wiped clean…. No oil is supposed to be past the second hole.
1F778CAC-BBCF-43BB-9EE8-B841EF54112C.jpeg


This is my dip stick (flipped over)
With approximately 6.3 quarts (with new filter, run warm, and drained after 15 minutes)
35FB94C8-51DF-499B-9EF2-CA197903F943.jpeg

Like I said earlier this dip stick is extremely hard to read… you can see the oil breaks up just past the hole…
I believe this is on the hairy edge of overfilled.

Again, after putting in 6.5 qts. as many have suggested, I painstaking bled oz. at a time to get to this level down…

my suggestion is to put 6qts in….drive it get the oil hot…let it drain back to the pan….
Then painstakingly top off the oil to fill…

I would never trust anyone to change my oil and the oil plugs that give you bleeding capability are a plus….

Hope my experience helps others
