oil drain valve

i bought the fumoto quick drain valve a few months ago and i love it. but today i was in harbor freight and they had this for $2.99 i picked up some for the 4 other vehicles we own because i change oil on all of them. it is certainly worth it since a plug costs more than that. just thought i would share it

Re: oil drain valve

I'm not sure I would depend on a $3 valve made in China to keep my oil in the engine. Everything I buy from harborfreight breaks pretty fast. If the valve ever fails you'll likely be buying a new engine...

Re: oil drain valve

i use to use this quick draw type stuff, but then i eventually just went old fashioned way.

speaking of which i need to change my oil soon, approaching 3000 in a few. just cant do it in the city unless i have a spot to work on the car

Re: oil drain valve

I'll stick with the stock plug, as it will never fail, and just takes a few seconds to loosen. There is a reason quick drain oil pan valves are not on any vehicles in the world as OEM, i.e. replacing an engine when one of those valves fails is not worth saving a minute of time during an oil change.

Re: oil drain valve

"Harbor Fright". For something as expensive to replace as the engine? No thanks.

Re: oil drain valve

I just dont understand why someone would take the risk on any quick valve system vs. an OME drain plug. It takes all of 30 seconds to remove the drain plug and you only do it 4 or 5 times a year at most. Too much of a chance that you hit something and the valve fails and you blow an engine in my opinion.

Re: oil drain valve

the fumoto drain is awesome. i have a hose attached to it and it drains right into a bottle. i have a skid plate so nada can hit it. its a no mess application and saves time.

Re: oil drain valve

Are you people that lazy that you cant spend 20 seconds twice a year to unscrew a drain plug ? Anyone that follows this advice are like the lemmings jumping off a cliff. NO way would I, any mechanic, any automaker or anybody with an IQ over 10 ever risk losing an engine with a $3 part just to save 20 seconds.
