Well it has been about 6 months now and 2000 miles since I put in the quick oil drain plug which can be had at quickoildrainplug.com. I will admit at first I was skeptical since using a valve on the oil could definately lead to a leak. I paid 20 dollars for it and the shipping was quick. Did my routine oil change, drain, change filter, then installed the oil drain valve. Used a large hex head to tighten it on. Now the drain plug did not totally line up to be facing directly down but it is close. So far I have not had any leaks and it seems to be holding up quite well. I would definately recommend it to those who fear of stripping the oil pan or dropping the plug in the oil. Using it to drain is very easy, just pop the valve over and voila. Overall it gets an A.
