True enough. But the new ECO engines have plastic drain plugs.

Yup. Standard on the 2021 Edge with the 0.4L flathead upgrade. Also heard that Ford was experimenting with plastic catolitic converters as well. Have to change them at every oil change though.

I've never used magnets other than drain plugs with magnets that come with some vehicles.  Sounds like using them could be helpful.

 

I do one thing that wasn't mentioned.  I fill the new oil filter ( when possible ) . Some filters are on such an angle can't get much in them. Then you have the upside down filter :-(    I figure the oil goes through the filter first before getting to the bearings, so if the filter is already full , it doesn't have to be filled by oil pump before getting to engine. May help illuminate dry start. 

 

The filter on my Edge 3.5 is vertical so I can completely fill it.

 

I may be old school on this but that's the way I do it.

I haven't done this on the Edge because I haven't bothered to look for a fuse that would disable the ignition.  I used to crank the car with the ignition disabled until the pressure would build up. I also would prefill the filter.

PaulSchott,

 

If you want to crank engine to build oil pressure, hold WOT, engine won't start until you release throttle.

Where do I put the magnets on my 2018 Edge Sport.......plastic oil filter cover kind of negates normal placement !

Filter magnets, pan magnets, hyperdyne tru-flo framister condensers... whatever.  The most important part of an oil change is that you do them regularly with a quality oil, dino or synth, and with a quality filter.

I've never had the pan off so is the windage tray plastic or metal?
