Yeah, it would take quite the situation for it to get damaged...I don't worry about mine, that's for sure.

As for anyone else that may be interested...here are the lab reports I mentioned earlier in this thread

I'm surprised that so many people use these or maybe its just internet world. How could you ever put a valve that has the possibility of leaking on the most vulnerable part of your vehicle. Taking a drain plug off is not difficult and its cheap insurance that your oil pan wont suddenly spill out on you.

Is draining your oil 30 seconds faster worth risking your motor. Not to me!

You run a greater risk taking your vehicle to a quick lube oil change place and having the pimply faced 18 year old kid screw up your threads or not do something right than for this valve to fail or magically open on it's own. People take their junk to Walmart for oil changes everyday! It's VERY hard to open and has a built in locking mechanism. I was a little iffy about it myself until it arrived and I got to mess with it...but to each their own.

^^ Just gotta test it out in the battlefield so to speak! Seems like a cool idea. Especially having skid plates...30 seconds isn't anything and I'd rather keep the Jeep safe than sorry!

Re: Rep your oil and filter!

Oh, quick sidenote....
I never did this for time savings. While I value my time, I don't mind spending time in the garage. My purpose was for a cleaner oil change (no messy funnels, no spills, no oil on my skid pans or converters) and the ability to take oil samples without having to drain the whole stinkin' pan.

Agreed ^^^ it's not so much the time it takes. But the mess you don't have to deal with. And if you have the nipple model. You don't even need a drain pan, you can tube it directly into a bottle.
So in actuality, if you were trying to save time, I'm sure it's alot more then 30 seconds of time saving.
But its all personal preference, and if you like burned oily hands and what not
Plus they guarantee this to last the life of your engine. So I wouldn't be worried about it leaking. More the fact it breaking, And how often do you guys really crawl over huge boulders and scrape a 1-2 inch size plug that's covered by a skid plate lol I'd call that being excessive

Re: Rep your oil and filter!

While i've never run one on my jeep,I have on my semi for years.it's not so much the time or even the mess, theres NO CHANCE of rounding off the plug or stripping the threads anymore.

Re: Rep your oil and filter!

Filter: Purolator PureONE
Oil: Whichever full-synthetic Advance Auto Parts has on sale: Castrol or Pennzoil. I always get my used oil analyzed and it always comes back great, even when I let it go overdue

ps: I love my Quick Oil Drain Valve

Re: Rep your oil and filter!

Since this thread is fresh and my questions have been beat around the block, I'll avoid yet another thread and piggyback here...

About 1500 miles overdue on my oil change. I recently did my TC and diffs; wasn't so bad. So I figured I'd stop spending my money at Jiffy Lube only to not trust what they're doing to begin with. I'm just now getting more hands-on with my car, and I always just went there because I figured it was easier to pay then do it myself.

Anyway...85,xxx on the clock. Probably going to make the change to synthetic this weekend in hopes of avoiding a change for most of the winter.

The ultimate question, as I've seen varying answers here: For my year and engine is it 5W-20 or 5W-30? I know either is probably fine, but I like to be "right". wkjeeps.com says 20 and that seems to be gospel.

I may invest in one of these quick-drain valves. But from what I've been reading if you're willing to undo the 4 skid plate bolts, it's not messy. Gotta do it old school at least the first time anyway.

Well if it helps, I have been running one for about a year and a half now and you know first hand how I wheel!!!
