Quick drain for oil

I ordered a quick drain valve for the truck this morning, hoping they work as good as is advertised.

Now that the old girl is a DD I go through oil changes quite rapidly so I figured this would be a good purchase.

I bought the one with the nipple so I can run a tube through the hole on my oil catch can and not have to worry about babysitting it while it drains so it doesn't overflow.

Re: Quick drain for oil

The Fumotos work great and you don't have to worry about wearing out the pan threads for the plug.

Re: Quick drain for oil

... Work great? If you mean slow as hell then sure.

Unless you change your oil when its hot, it takes FOREVER to get the oil out.

I find myself removing mine half the time anyway just because I get sick of waiting.

Re: Quick drain for oil

I personally dont trust them enough to buy one. Id be pissed if while driving down one of the farm paths back to the wheels it gets hit just right and i dump oil all over the place in the middle of nowhere!

Feeling real good about my purchase now.

I'm going to try it out, it was only $30 shipped so what the heck. I don't mind if it drains slow, I usually do other things while I'm changing my oil anyhow.

If a bolt comes out of my oil pan when I drain the oil I have way worse problems.

sorry about that

I pull up a 5 gallon bucket pull the plug and do other things also plus the drain lug has a inspection magnet so at least clip one on the pan it might cattch the junk if any and unclip it when u drain the oil to flush the fines

I bought two... My wife took one look at it and said "Not on my truck"...

I always hit the bottom of the pan with a deadblow hammer to make sure. Only had something knock back once...
