Well, my free oil changes are completed on my 2020 Silverado 1500 2.7T so I did my first one today.

What a mess!

The drain plug sucks. You use a 3/8" ratchet with a short extension and the plug turns about a half of a turn and just falls out. The oil comes out like a gusher!

Splashes everywhere! Looking back I should have removed the filler cap under the hood first because it seemed like the oil needed air to drain.

It sort of glugged as it came out.

The filter was straight forward and easy to get to.

I bought 3 PF66 AC Delco from Rock Auto cheaper than 1 at the dealer.

The next time I will take off the filler cap and have some kind of raised platform to sit the drain pan on to get it closer to the drain plug.

Should work a lot better.

On vehicles were I know the drain plugs sucks I will do it with the engine cold. That way it doesn't spray all over the place when it comes rushing out. Sure it takes a little longer to drain but whatever.

I think I’m going to try the Fumoto plug. I’ve used them before and liked them. I’ll post how it works on my next  oil change.

I wasn’t sure which Fumoto valve fit my 2020 Silverado 1500 with the 2.7T so I contacted Fumoto. 
It seems they don’t know either. They told me to take the drain plug to a hardware store and fit it to a nut. What???

The plug don’t have threads. It turns about a half turn and comes ou!

I always thought a company selling a product should do the research on the product they advertise. I guess not. 
Oh well.
