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

With the Fumoto engine oil drain valve you can change your engine oil following a simple sequence that is cleaner, quicker and easier than traditional methods.

Fitting the valve is simplicity itself as it screws in place of the traditional sump plug. Once fitted, it remains in place on your vehicle so a frozen drain plug, replacement washers and stripped threads are eliminated forever. What’s more, the one-touch operation of the valve prevents wasted time fumbling to release awkward sump plugs; in fact it requires no tools for day-to-day operation which ultimately means a much faster and easier oil change each and every time.

The traditional risk of scalding when draining oil is also reduced as hot oil can drain without coming into contact with your skin, so you won’t need to get messy hands or clothes.

The valves are also designed to provide a controllable, steady flow of oil which means you can choose how and where the oil drains to reduce mess even further. The valves come in a choice of fittings: opt for a nipple design and you can drain your oil via piping directly into your waste receptacle.

When it comes to refilling your engine with oil, you can easily drain off any excess if you accidentally overfill. Never again will you need to correct the error by draining the whole engine or starting the process again.

By fitting a Fumoto engine oil drain valve, you will spend less time under your vehicle, reduce the risk of creating a messy driveway or floor and, ultimately, save on workshop time and expense.

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.
