What are the main features of the engine oil drain valve?

The Fumoto engine oil drain valve is made of corrosion-resistant forged brass and stainless steel. The ball valve design provides a controllable, steady flow for efficient drainage and a perfect seal when closed.

The ball valve design is the same as used in pressurized gas applications. Every valve is constructed to exacting specifications and each valve is tested for air tightness before it leaves the factory.

The Fumoto engine oil drain valve has also been tested and granted ‘Genuine Part’ status by six major motor vehicle manufacturers* in Japan. To gain the approval of these manufacturers the valves were subjected to temperatures as low as -40°C. They endured 336 hours of salt spray and thousands of opening and closing operations and still worked perfectly. These approvals were not granted easily and gaining them was a testimony to the quality and durability of the product.

The valve's simple but effective locking system requires two distinct actions to open it and its heavy-duty construction will withstand any engine vibration.

The valves are about 10mm longer than a standard sump plug.  For many engines the oil drain hole is on the side of the sump and so the extra length has no effect on ground clearance. Sizes are available to fit most cars, motorbikes, vans, trucks, tractors and buses.

Over 7 million engine oil drain valves have been sold worldwide in the past twenty years so the product has an established pedigree with a proven track record for safety, durability and reliability. You can confidently expect your drain valve to outlast your vehicle.
