You don’t torque down this plug. It’s twist in plastic with an o-ring. It’s not a lifetime part, so if Ford expects you to replace it anyway you might as well get one that makes it more convenient to change you oil and not spill everywhere.Walmart is your friend when it comes to oil. Usually can't find it cheaper. Most five qt jugs are $20-$30. Finding one that meets the specs will take a little bit of research but I think there's threads on this form about it already. I want to say there's a Castrol one that does but don't quote me.
As far as replacing the drain valve, I don't totally understand why people are so eager to do this. Is the factory plug so bad that people are spending $200 to replace it? I just never had any issues with factory oil plugs. I think I'm owing ever had to replace one once in my life because when torque down it was still dripping.
You should be good as long as you use an oil rated API SP.Just ordered the Ronin plug today from amazon,$170 plus tax, boy you guys are lucky down south. Retired last month so trying to save money on the oil changes, but this is quite a hit. For the oil, called a few dealers and they will only sell in 1 qt bottles. The only 5 qt jug I saw that met the ford specs was from Mobil at $60. Are there other oils that meet the spec at a cheaper price or is Mobil the go to oil?
