Fumoto brass quick drain oil valve install.

Decided to put the Fumoto drain on that I got 3000 miles ago. It installs with a 3/8 Allen wrench.
Also drained my Mishimoto catch can.
All of that would have went right back into the motor.

What!! No "mayonaise" (condensation mixed with oil) in the catch can? I'd think where you are that you'd at least get some in the winter time. Good to see you installed the Fumoto. You'll be much happier (and cleaner) when doing oil changes now.

Yeah I'm excited about that.
Just yoo hoo, no mayo. I put seafoam in the oil prior to the change so it may have had an impact on the consistency.
I seafoamed the intake and fuel and after the intake I could feel a noticeable difference.
I also fogged out a pt cruiser. Oops.
That Fumoto is a really nicely engineered piece.
Thanks again for the heads up on it.

The Fumoto makes it really clean to change the oil on my CRD. Otherwise, the oil aims straight backwards and makes a mess.

Double dittos on the Fumoto!! It drains a little slower than just pulling the plug but it is SO worth it. No more mess!

90grandoneer: It's not mayonnaise; it's latte (v-e-r-y sophisticated WK GC crowd here). I get it in the winter when the Heep is outside. The engine gets up to operating temp and then sits outside in sub-freezing weather for a long period. Condensation forms in the crankcase as the crankcase atmosphere cools and relative humidity goes up. [...I'm supposed to understand this Thermodynamic stuff since I teach it...]

PolkaPower: I added a short length of clear plastic drain tubing to the outlet (about 10" long with a plastic cap at the outlet end). I can put the tube into a milk jug, open the valve, and direct the oil flow directly without spilling any. Close the valve and change jugs. Can also see after the second jug, when the flow stops and the sludge finishes running out. Tube stores up on the engine splash pan. Plastic cap keeps road dirt from clogging the end.

Also, I installed a spring clip over the Fumoto valve operating handle (see the Fumoto website in the offroad vehicle section) to double protect it from opening. I know it's anal, but it only takes 1 visit by Mr. Murphy to really spoil your day. IIRC, it is the same size spring clip as for the clear plastic tubing attachment to the outlet end of the Fumoto. Take your Fumoto to Lowe's, Home Depot, or Ace Hardware to match up the tubing and the clips.

90grandoneer got me onto this. Happy he did. I also use the K&N Oil Filter with the 1" hex end to speed up the oil filter change process.

It's great. I wish I had one 20 years ago. Mine came with a tube, cap, and valve handle clip. They all don't?

If I remember correctly, I think I paid a little extra for the tube.

I just installed a B&M transmission cooler yesterday on the return line.
It's got a built in valve that only allows hot fluid through so it warms up in cold weather.
My torque program showed my transmission temps at 216 f while driving slow off road on a hot day.
Still within specs but the cooler the better.
I'm not sure of the accuracy of the torque reading but at least it gives a reference point.
I'm not sure where it's taking the reading from.
Not the pan which isn't a good indicator of what's happening inside, and not the hot line after the torque converter which it the hottest the fluid gets.
I might have to put a sender there to see incase the fluid starts to cook.
