Torque converter drain plug

2001 F150 4x4 SuperCab Off Road XLT, 139” WB Style sides, 5.4L, 4R70W, 3.55LS, 6500 GVWR

What is the Ford part number for the torque converter drain plug? The local Ford dealer part shop said you can not order it unless you order the torque converter. I thought it was a one time uses drain plug and I reused it once all ready.

Yep, someone was misinforming you on it being a single use plug. Otherwise you get a service and then next service you buy a torque convertor? LOL Nope. At least you have a model that still has one.

Naw, use it. If you're worried, run it for a bit, get under the truck and pull the dust cover off your bellhousing and check for leaks. Don't think you'll find anything if you do it right.

I've been a pipefitter by trade for over 23 years now,and in that time i've never seen a plug that cannot be re-used,unless it were stripped or cross threaded.Use it until the end of time!
