Hello guys !!

I bought a piece of EZ Oil Drain valve recently to give it a try since I DIY my oil change. The drain valve shall make things easier for me.

Here are the pictures:

The packaging looks like this. The car that i'm gonna install on is a myvi lagi best 1.5



The valve body. If I were not mistaken, it is made of brass with nickel plating. The valve lever has a locking mechanism to prevent it from accidentally opened.


It has rubber oil ring to replace a gasket


Ball valve construction. The seat is PTFE (white part)


Sum nut vs the valve..the valve thread is significantly shorter :hmmmm:


Installed !




View from the front of the car


I got it installed for 2days already and its so far so good. No leaking or whatsoever.

One thing that i can try is that i can drain part of the oil after doing like 3000km~5000km and top up with the remaining new oil :biggrin:

Nicely done.....:driver:

1) your drain plug area looks like it is not at the lowest point?

2) If valve thread is longer you might not get clean drain as your drain valve pointing straight up......:smokin:

yea...probably gonna jack up more to tilt it more

The valve length shall be sufficient to hold it in place I think. At least I am sure that there isn't any bottom dead level haha

Yah! the length of the valve screw end enough to hold. Too long you may not get to drain all the oil.....:biggrin:
