Fumoto Engine Oil Drain Valve

After I installed my Skid Row Engine Skid plate on my Jeep, I discovered that changing my oil became a bit messier to do. The problem is that oil would drain onto the Skid plate as the flow slowed to a trickle and it's a real pain to wipe up. While this may not be that big a deal for a lot of you out there, I wanted to find a way to solve this. That's when I found the Fumoto Engine Drain Valve. Affordable and super easy to install, the Fumoto Valve now allows my oil to drain clear of the Skid plate and requires no tools to use. Just so it's clear, I wouldn't recommend installing this valve unless you have a Skid plate to protect it.

What You Will Need
Fumoto Drain Valve - Part# F101N(w/Nipple)
• 5/8" Wrench or Socket w/Extension
• Ratchet
• Oil Drip Pan
• Oil Filter Wrench
• New Oil Filter
• 6-Qts of Oil
• Newspaper
• Rags

1. Because you will need to completely drain your oil pan before installing this valve, it's a good idea to wait until you need to perform a routine oil change.

2. Park your Jeep on a level surface and place newspaper underneath the area of your engine you will be working on.

3. As with any oil change, place a oil drip pan or bucket underneath your oil pan and then remove the drain bolt using a 5/8" socket. It's always a good idea to make sure your engine is warm when doing this.

4. While your oil is draining, go ahead and replace your oil filter with a new one.

5. With the oil all drained, install your new Fumoto Valve using a 5/8" wrench. Make sure you have the washer/gasket that goes between the valve and your oil pan on.

6. Pour 6-Qts of new oil into your engine and clean up.

7. To operate your new Fumoto Valve in the future, all you need to do is lift up the safety lock and rotate it 90° as shown in the animation to the left.

8. I chose to buy the optional nipple so that I could make sure oil would drain past the aperture in my Skid plate If needed, you can hook up a hose to this nipple and direct your oil to wherever you want.

That's pretty much it. Super simple and cheap mod. The best part is that changing my oil is a cinch now. Please let me know if you have any questions.
