6.7 Oil Change

A few days ago we had a 6.7 come into the shop for its 1st oil change. The truck was great and was pulling a huge trailer which the owner droped off in the parking lot. The truck got 16 mpgs towing and 21 empty. I was very impressed by the truck and all the cool stuff it had. Then it came time to get under it. I saw a yellow thing coming out of the oil pan. It was the plug and it was plastic!?!?! I didnt know anything about this. Is the pan also plastic? I couldnt tell since it was so hot I didnt touch it and didnt think about tapping it with the wrench. You just barely turn the plug and it pulls out then is easily put back in. I dont think they will last. Some of our parts guys came out then went back in and ordered a few oil plugs thinking they will break. I know Ford said they cut weight on the 6.7 but I didnt think they meant this way. I also put in DEF too. Very easy oil change if anyones curious. Just shocked about the plastic plug and maybe pan? Someone tell me its ok..........please!

Next question: Anyone use Fumoto valves before or put one on the 2011 yet? Will it work in place of the quarter-turn do-hickey?

I dont think so, but I do think people will be breaking them like crazy though. Even though it was plastic it was pretty long and well thought out. I dont want people to think its crappy or anything like that I just dont know much about these yet. So if anyone else knows something tell some more.

Anyone going in soon for a oil change?

i don't believe that plastic will rust out like are old steel pans did.
