So your Lincoln is sitting in your garage with no oil in it? Does anybody else drive it? If so you might want to disconnect the battery so nobody starts that thing with no oil.

We keep the plug in stock. Don't sell as many as we used to when they first came out.

Thanks guys. I’m thinking the coolness might have been a factor. The car had totally cooled off - it was a 50 degree day tops. Had the car up on jacks and got derailed with one of the wife’s projects. When I got back to the task at hand even the pan was cold. Brittleness may have gotten the best of the tabs. They’re pretty stiff for something so thin plus this was the first oil change since new if that means anything.
From here on I’ll make sure everything is still nice and warm and maybe that’ll help ease things.

They are usually less than $5 on Amazon. I put a new one in every time I change the oil. Did it on my last f-150 as well

That happened to my dad many years ago: he got called away while changing the oil on a car, and ran out of daylight. He decided to lower the car off the jacks, due to little kids etc. Never told my mom, and she wakes up early the next day and starts up the car to run an errand. I think the car made it about 1/2-1 mile and started running really badly, and cut off, so she walked home. I was pretty young, so I do not remember the conversation with my mom, but my dad was mostly mad at himself. They were generally very frugal, and it was a beater, so it was not a big deal to replace it. But they got a good laugh out of it later because was dad was a avid hunter, and he always preached that if you kill something, you have to eat it. Mom said that "technically you killed the car, so start eating".

my brothers f150 has the plastic plug, we have done 2 oil changes on it with no issues.


I suppose a couple extra plugs on hand wouldn't be a bad idea.


but as most would suggest get the motorcraft brand, the aftermarket plastic drain plugs are known to leak.



you can also buy a special plug with a cap and you remove the cap and turn in the other piece to drain it and then remove it and put the cap back on.

its pricey but you'll probably only ever have to buy it once, or shop around, might be cheaper elsewhere

if for whatever reason I have a vehicle sitting in the garage that shouldn't be started or moved, I take the keys out and put them elsewhere and put a piece of tape on the steering wheel and write on it do not start/move

That is not cold enough for plastic to become brittle. My guess is you had a plug that had a flaw.

A plastic drain plug in a plastic oil pan. Doesn’t seem like it’s likely to be a 300K mile/20 year design.

Lesson learned. Do the job when it’s hot and the plastic is still somewhat pliable.

Shouldn’t matter though as that’s basically what radiator drain plugs look like, but oh well.

Ford family is often perplexed on why it struggles to to get a property identity and proper footing with Lincoln, in today's luxury vehicle market.

This example of a plastic oil drain plug is one of many reasons to shop elsewhere for luxury.

How many buyers of luxury vehicles look at the oil pan and drain plug?

Zero.
