Introducing the best way to change oil, the Engine Oil Drain Valve. Install this valve and you can drain your engine oil without tools and without mess. Just lift the lever of this solid brass ball valve and give it a quarter turn to open it. Return the lever to its original position and it locks closed, double sealed to prevent leakage. The Engine Oil Drain Valve is made of corrosion resistant forged brass and stainless steel. The ball valve design provides a straight flow for efficient drainage and a perfect seal when closed. Frozen drain plug and stripped threads are eliminated forever. Drawing samples for oil analysis is as easy as one-two-three.
1x Subaru OEM Oil Filter
1x Fumoto Valve
1. Remove original drain plug and drain oil into acceptable receptacle.
2. Insert Engine Oil Drain Valve with gasket* and tighten. Do not over tighten. (Some oil pans are designed with recessed drain hole which may prevent the valve from being installed properly. If the valve can not be tightened all the way without hitting the oil pan wall, do not install the Drain Valve to your vehicle. Adaptors are available for some models)
3. Make sure valve is closed and refill crankcase.
Note: This product is for EJ subaru engines only. EJ20/EJ25 Models.
Makes oil changes a breeze. The cost of the crush washers adds up over time so not having to worry about that is nice. It would be nice if they had one with the nipple on it so you could attach a hose, but oh well. Also, only comes with one oil filter while the picture kinda leads you to believe you'll get two. Overall, very satisfied with it.
This was a great price for the valve and filter. OEM is probably the best bet for Subarus when it comes to things like filters. As for the Fumoto valve, it installed and sealed perfectly and it should make my upcoming oil change a breeze.
I used this on my 98 forester and it has made oil changes so much easier. Just flip a switch and out comes the oil. Ya it takes a bit longer but not having to unscrew the plug is a huge plus.
Oh and it will not open by itself. When it's hot it's a pita to open, plus you can get the lock for it just for a piece of mind. Would buy again if I wasn't using a magnetic plug in my sti.
