How much of the oil do you think you can suck out?

why not just drill a hole in the skid plate to access the oil drain plug?? That would seem more efective and easier.

I don't drop the skid to change mine ... with some creative funnel placement, I can do it without making too big a mess.

There was a thread about those not to long ago, And a few people agreed that they wouldnt trust their engine with a little valve like that..

I've run a fumoto valve for the last thousand miles or so. No leaks, no problems, except that they are a bit slow to drain. But I'd rather wait a half hour inside my warm house on a cold day while my old oil drains through a tube, past my skids, straight into a container than have it done in five but have to remove little bolts and get all oily...

ive seen those futomoto valves and have not ever seen a better made valve than that. they also come with with clips to stop them from opening when they are not supposed. I would deffinetly trust my oil with one of those little valves after all they are made in japan!

So how do like the tool? I guess it can work for an auto trans too. Is it quick and does a warm engine help the flow like the traditional way?

Talking

I bought one of these air operated ones. We have a Generator that they placed so close to the wall that you can`t get a drain pain in. They had been draining the oil on the floor.

I sucked all the oil out then opened the drain valve to make sure it was all drained out..

Less mess for sure. Like all other it is still best todo any oil change with warm oil.
