Fumoto drain valve doesn't fit

The Fumoto oil drain valve (107) that I ordered did not fit. Looks like they list the 106 for the Focus as well. What the heck? Guess I didn't know I had the SOHC.

Can anyone confirm that the 106 works on the 2.0's drain plug? Too bad I have to wait another 15,000 miles now though.

You have a 2.0 Dura-tech-MZR motor, which is a dohc motor. Why do you want one of those plugs for? Takes longer for it to drain & more oil comes out then w/ that.

Because I change my oil in a parking garage and don't want to make a mess.

So, basically, they sent me something that was intended for my vehicle, but doesn't work for my vehicle...

Edit: Or, I'm an idiot and ordered the wrong part. Ha! Oops! Hey, it only took two days for me to realize it.
