      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Oil pan drain plug

Recommended Posts

I went to change the woman's 08 Ford Focus's oil and I seen that the drain plug was stripped, I couldn't get it off with the 13mm that it took so I didn't mess around anymore, do you know if a parts store carries these or is it dealership only. I could call and ask, but up this way nothing is open on Sundays.

If its a 14mm x 1.5 thread than there pretty common and readily available just about anywhere (NAPA #7041929) . The aftermarket one may or may not look like the O.E. one but I would make sure it looks pretty close (at least the same size flange with the rubber gasket) the head size may also be different which isn't a big deal unless you don't have that size wrench!

I used a gift certificate for a free change and later discovered that the place had messed up my plug and replaced it with a generic model that unscrews but stays attached to the oil pan. Now when I change the oil, it spatters all over the place and creates a nice mess.
