Revolutionary Valve Makes Car Servicing Easier, Cleaner and Much Less Hassle


Introducing the Fumoto engine oil drain valve: it simply replaces your standard sump plug to make your engine oil change:



One touch operation

No tools required

Saves workshop time and expense



No messy hands

No messy clothes

No messy driveway or garage floor



No contact with hot oil

No stripped threads

Less time spent under vehicle

Fitting and Operation


Fitting one of the valves to your vehicle is easy as it screws in place of the traditional sump plug.  It then takes the struggle and mess out of changing your engine oil as, unlike a sump plug which is removed every oil change, the valve stays in place to simplify servicing; you do not even need to use any tools. 


Simply follow a four-step process of: lift the retaining lever; rotate the lever; allow the oil to drain; close the lever.  It is as easy as that.  In fact, it is so simple many vehicles can have their oil changed without the need for getting under the vehicle at all.


About the Valves


The Fumoto engine oil drain valve is made of corrosion-resistant forged brass and stainless steel. The solid brass 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. The traditional risk of scalding is also reduced as hot oil can drain without coming into contact with your hands.

The valves even have the distinction of ‘genuine part’ status from leading car manufacturers:  Mitsubishi, Mazda, Isuzu, Toyota, Subaru and Nissan.

This listing is for an oil drain valve which is suitable for the following vehicles:

Here is a selection of the most frequently asked questions but please do get in touch if you have any further questions which we haven’t already covered:


Q.  Is my engine oil drain valve going to leak?

No. The ball valve is just like the valve design used in pressurized gas applications. Every valve is constructed to exacting specifications and each and every 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. These approvals were not granted easily and gaining them was a testimony to the quality and durability of the product.


Q. Will my engine oil drain valve open up accidentally while I am driving?


No. In its closed position the Fumoto engine oil drain valve only extends from the oil pan about 2cm more than a standard sump plug. 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 product has been established for over twenty years and has a proven track record for safety, durability and reliability.


Q. Will my engine oil drain valve reduce ground clearance?


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. If the sump plug goes in to the bottom surface of the sump pan, the valve will protrude.  In many cases even this will not affect ground clearance as suspension, cross-members and aerodynamic spoilers may be lower.


Q. Will my engine oil drain valve protrude into the interior of the oil pan and prevent full drainage of my engine oil?


The thread on the drain valves are a similar length to the sump plugs they replace.  The oil drain plug hole is always reinforced to accept the threaded bolt of the sump plug.  Your drain valve will not protrude beyond this portion of the drain hole; it will allow all the oil to be properly drained.


Q. How long will my engine oil drain valve last?


The oil drain valves are constructed from corrosion-resistant brass and stainless steel. To gain the approval of motor manufacturers they were subjected to temperatures as low as minus 40oC. They endured 336 hours of salt spray and thousands of opening and closing operations and still worked perfectly. You can confidently expect your drain valve to outlast your vehicle.
