Torque Spec for Drain Plug

Anyone know the torque spec for the oil drain plug?

On a side note...I got a pretty good oil burn from changing the oil last night. The plug fell down on the drain pan, rolled right to the hole and promplty stopped it up, and 6.5 quarts of HOT 5w20 was pouring out. I bit the bullet and stuck my hand into the rising oil...I did this three times before I could get a firm grip on the plug. I think the whole neighborhood heard me hooting and hollering. Burned hand, or oil all over Momma's clean garage floor...what would you have done?

Not exactly. My guess would have it a 15-25 Ft. Lbs. Or as reasonably tight as your 6" 3/8 drive could make it.

>...what would you have done?

Sure as hell wouldn't have done that!!!

Sounded like the perfect time to add that Fumoto valve.

Well, I must admit that I, too, have dropped the plug into the waste oil. Of, course, I waited until it was done draining then poured it into another container so that I could retrieve the plug...

Ouch! If the plug stopped up the drain pan, sounds like you didn't have much choice... get a little hot-handed or clean 6 qts of oil off the floor. I'd have chosen the hot hand too.

Monsta-

Did you add the Fumoto valve? I read a post about that a while back and thougtht it would be a good idea if I did start doing my own oil changes. Anyone else have it?

Hmm...I'd like to hook up a length of hose to the valve and spray the cats that keep crawling over my clean truck! That would be one sloppy puss

Monsta is going to be gone a few days, so don't give up on getting an answer. He hasn't said anything about getting the valve TMK.

That would probably just get you some oily cat tracks on your truck! That's something that really angers me- neighbors who won't control their cats.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 24-Apr-02 AT 10:50 AM (EST)]This is another I have found along those same lines as the Fumoto.

(It's at the bottom.)

Doesn't appear to be one for the V10.

Not yet. I'll probably will next week when I change my oil. I've become somewhat leary simply because I lose the drain plug magnet. I'm looking into magnets to put on the bottom of the pan first. Once I find something acceptable then I'll go ahead and put it on.
