Re: Quick Drain Valve

I've got one of these on my Optima. It's working as intended (no problems) but it takes FOREVER to drain the oil. I'll stick with the OEM drain plug and spend a few extra seconds to wrench it off and back on.

Re: Quick Drain Valve

For me "forever" is about 20 minutes.

Re: Quick Drain Valve

Since I do my own oil changes for time and to stay away from dealers as much as possible I added a fumoto valve. I put a drain hose on it also so all you do is put the hose in your jug and flip the lever no more mess draining and transferring oil to jugs. it is a smaller flow opening but warm 5w20 flows pretty good so by the time you are done with the filter its about done. Also a trick on that messy dripping filter is to loosen it with the filter wrench just enough to break the tightness then slip one of those large plastic mcDonalds or Subway cups around it which are flexible enough for you to squeeze it and finish unscrewing the filter. All the dripping oil and mess drops into the cup along with the filter with no mess. Pour off the oil from the filter and cup into the jug and the jug of old oil goes to the auto parts store the next time you happen to be up there. The valve is not likely to come open on its own especially considering the location on the 5.7 but spend the $1.00 and buy the safety lock clip to ensure that will never happen.

Its a very quick and messless change with the oil you want and best part is you know it was done correctly. I change my own more as a time saver and to know it was done correctly then to save money. I always cringe at reading where the dealer didn't tighten the filter or drain plug and people have oil spilling on the road. There was one on here where a guy was bringing the dealer some type of higher cost synthetic for the change and the dealer was steeling putting that expensive oil in the trunk of his car and was doing the oil change with just regular oil, unbelievable.

Re: Quick Drain Valve

I have the Fram Quick Drain Valves on both my cars. They work as advertised. I haven't seen them on the market for a few years now. I don't know why they took them off the market. They work really well, and don't leak a drop.

I had the type the OP posted on an old 1979 Rabbit Diesel I had. It also worked well. When I get my new Grand Cherokee 5.7 HEMI in a couple of months, I'll be installing one.

Re: Quick Drain Valve

Love the Fumoto! Had one on my 05 Magnum R/T and still on my wife's Honda Odyssey.
Really make life easy with no mess and no leaks. Not sure why I have not put one on the GC.

Re: Quick Drain Valve

Be careful to not over tighten. There really isn't a good way to torque it. Instructions said you could torque or tighten until it bottoms and then an 1/8 or a 1/4 additional turn. Ended up tearing the fiber gasket between these recommendations on the first one and it leaked. Second one, I turned just under an 1/8 and everything has been great for 12,000 miles. Check it every change just to make sure it hasn't backed out... so far so good. Initial hiccup aside, I love the thing. The skid plate protects the low clearance one really good. The version that you can install the drain hose will stick out below the skid a little bit.

I agree it was hard to know how tight to go with it, I tend to over tighten everything so if anything its probably a little to tight not leaking though so good, I will keep an eye on it, thanks
The drain plug on the 5.7 sits up way above the belly pan opening no issues with leaving a drain line attached to it. even with the drain line on it still several inches above the opening in the belly pan. if I destroy a belly pan far enough up to reach that drain plug I have got other issues lol

Re: Quick Drain Valve

Does the 5.7 HEMI use a spin on filter? Is it easy to get at?

Its a spin on filter that you have to get to from under the front of the vehicle. I put the Quadra lift all the way up and there is plenty of room to lay on your back and take it off you don't need ramps or jacks or anything, just reach straight up through the hole in the belly pan. the v6 has it real easy that filter just sits there on the top of the engine im jealous of that. but you got to be under there for the drain plug anyway and the filter is right beside it on the 5.7.

That sounds good. At least it's not the cartridge type Toyota uses, that you need a special wrench for. O-Rings, drain nipple, and everything else. I don't understand why these companies are so insistent on making a Moon shot out of an oil change?

Horrible design in my opinion. Reaching up through that access hole. Then unscrewing the filter, then having oil go everywhere including running down your arm. Do it myself but it is not fun.
