Question 2018 5.0 Oil Drain Plug ???

my NEW 2018 5.0, 2,000 miles

this Truck has been on the Dealer lot since Jan 2018 (well that's the date on the window sticker)

I bought it in Feb 2019 with 13 miles

as the oil has been in there over 1 year I going to change it & filter (MotorCraft oil & filter)

I looked at the drain and never seen a plug like that

any Tips or Tricks on taking it off

Not sure if it's the same as an Eco boost motor,...but in this video the guy uses channel locks.

Thanks for the Video

that's what I have "that yellow thing"

and the cross bar

the 2018 5.0 holds 8.8 quarts

oil filter type & location is similar to my 5.4

Oil & Filter changed

Hey Chris, I really appreciate that video, it prevented me from making a mess

I used channel locks to loosen the drain plug
then slowly turned it by hand until a small stream of oil came out and I held the plug in the drain hole, it took awhile to drain 8.8 quarts, but I didn't get any on my arms or the floor

and yes, the torsion bar is dead in the way of the oil stream

the drain hole is 1" and if you were to pull the plug away I'm sure all 8 qts would come out very fast and a heavy stream of oil would go everywhere

the oil and trans pan are plastic

I got a little nervious when I removed the factory filter as it's not the same looking as the MC FL 500s
I went and double checked that I had purchased the correct filter

the filter has a plastic drain pan under it to funnel the oil toward the front, and just like my '06 5.4 most of the oil goes out and over the back side and just a little out the front
you have to be quick with the catch pan to keep the oil off the floor

to add to POST #4
let the oil pan & plug cool enough to touch
so you can hold the plug in the hole so as not to make a mess (this is an important step, hold the plug)

I bought the RONIN Factory drain l oil drain pan plug and did a full review. For those unware, the yellow one from Ford is a pain. This one tries to lessen the pain of changing your oil. It gives a controlled flow, has a magnetic tip in the pan and it looks good.
