I want to install an oil temp gauge and I will use one the those drain plugs that have the sensor port tapped in the center. Anyone know the treadpitch of either the oil pan drain plug or the oil filter drain plug?

Thanks,

Steve

Most japenese cars have M12x1,25mm - not 100% sure on the Mazda 6 though. However, we have fabricated such drain plug adapters with 1/8" sensor thread.

I think its 14mm x 1.5 but can't tell for sure until I do my first oil change. I was hoping somone else already knew.
