Those are handy.......but don't you still have to climb under to change the filter? Only case I see where those are useful is if you can access the oil filter from the engine bay.

2014 Jeep SRT present the below models:

http://www.qwikvalve.com/fumoto-f106n-valve.html

Thank you! Is this brand considered "the best"? I knew these existed but never really thought of adding one until now.

Re: Oil Drain Valve

If you install one, wrap the threads with teflon tape. Makes them easier to install, and helps avoid leaking.

Re: Oil Drain Valve

Fumoto "seems" like the original brand from my research.

I believe this to be true. I bought one about 15 years ago (maybe more?) for my 1992 Eclipse (which I still own, by the way!) and Fumoto was "the way to go" back then, I don't even remember any competitors at that time, but my memory is fuzzy.

They are pretty cool, in that they allow you to more accurately control the timing of when you will get a blast of hot oil on your arm than the regular fill plug does.

Folks who think adding a hose will help have never heard of Murphy and his laws.

Apparently I'm dense......what problem would there be putting a hose on it to drain right into an empty gas container? Would make it so much easier. I assume you mean the hose would come flying off?

Murphy's law states that 'anything that can go wrong will go wrong' I'm also assuming he is just saying that there is a chance the hose would pop off and you get splashed with hot oil anyway...

Re: Oil Drain Valve

Plus they now come with a cover that prevents them from opening.although i never had one open. with the filter on top in the 3.6 this makes it even easier to change oil.

More accurately, no matter what you do, you are going to get a dose of hot oil... so just grin and bear it.
