Re: Fumoto Valve
Thanks for the replies. vertkr, Well number 1 on your list is my first major concern, there is that OCD again. I'm sure it is a small amount as well, but I always felt that that was the worst part of oil/junk at the bottom. Number 2 well I don't mind waiting a little bit, gives me time to inspect everything. Number 3, while it is possible, there is a small clamp to go over it to at least make it a little more challenging to just dump it. Now number 4 I guess is another possibility. I had a 2004 Acura MDX, that was traded in for the D, same set up as the Ridgeline and last year I had the trans line strip out of radiator. I thought it was a Steel banjo washer used and that it rusted/reacted with aluminum and expanded which caused trans cooler line out of radiator. Are you sure it was Brass? If so wow, it looked like steel, I should have put a magnet to it before discarding. I was very disappointed and suprised with that design from Honda. Of course this happened the morning after Hurricane Sandy.
