Why bother to reply?I don't understand this product. It took me longer to write this message than it is to remove the drain plug.
Wow, sort of an actual response to my question....On the accord it doesnt hang down at all... On the Rav, the plug faces down on an angle....?I have pulled more drain plugs than most everyone here combined (not counting other professional mechanics) and have seen these get knocked off and banged up. They hang down much lower than the stock drain plug.
Other than that, I can buy a lot of drain plug gaskets for what the valve costs. As CircusEnvy said, it's not difficult or time consuming to remove the drain plug. Maybe 5 seconds.
Kind of makes you wonder if someone claiming it will hang lower that has ever even looked at the drain plug on a Rav.
So what vehicles have you seen these banged up and knocked off (that didn't also have damage to the pan or frame)?I believe you are referring to my post. I am an ASE Certified Master Technician with Advanced Level 1 certification. I am also a Missouri Recognized Repair Technician. I have been professionally employed as a mechanic since the late 70s. I own a 2010 RAV4.
I take offense to your comment.
Yep... Still waiting for my wife's next oil change to install the one on her Rav, but I've had one on my '16 Corolla since last June and haven't had any issues.So, it's been a while....and nothing bad has happened....Time has been saved, hands kept clean/un-burned...it has been all the good things I thought it would be, and none of the bad...
