The Oil Quick Changer Kit

As anyone installed the Quick Oil Changer Kit and lived to regret it because it failed and your sump went dry?

I have had one for a while but someone told me that they break so I havent installed it yet.

Thx

Ok thanks. I had something like that that Fram made on one of my trucks. Worked like a charm.

Like many folks here, I never remove the oil drain plug anymore. When you undo the oil filter plate cover, almost all the oil comes out that way. Just take out two of the screws, then slowly undo the third and the oil will flow right into your drain pan in a very controllable sheet. If you then take out the drain plug, you only get a tiny dribble of extra oil. So I just leave it in place, and drain through the filter cover.

Maybe if they made something like this for the tranny drain . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I've had it on three cars now and it works great. I really don't see the added benifit for the LT though. As previously stated, removing the filter plate does the trick. I never remove the drain plug.
