    you won't be disappointed...I bought one like 5 oil changes ago...LOVE IT!!!
    You need to wait a little longer for it to drain out...Like 15-20 min but that's nothing. I went with the Fumoto-F-103-LC-10. It doesn't have a clip on spot for a hose (not needed as the tacoma drains right down) but get the clip for piece of mind. It stays secure and ensures the valve doesn't open by accident...WHICH WILL NOT HAPPEN...it's spring loaded and tough to open.

    Be sure to compare the mechanism to the

    I installed the F103S and love it. Fumoto valves definitely have their critics on TW, but most also seem to think people install them because loosening a bolt is too much work, or criticizing because it is "vulnerable" to sheering off. I don't think most people install them because a single bolt is too much work, and as far as vulnerability to sheer...I'm still waiting for a thread titled "Dont buy this product because of what happened to me!" and haven't seen one, and that's saying something considering some of the inane threads that have existed during the life of TW. Buy a Fumoto; if you like the idea, you'll love the product.

    me for example I live in a apartment right now and don’t have a garage so I have to do my oil changes laying on the ground/street so anything that gets me done quicker and easier I’m all for

    I have a fumoto but havent installed it yet. I bought it mainly because I purchased an RCI Skid and felt it would make oil changes easier. Guess we will find out!

    F133 for the 4.0 engine. Not sure if it's the same for the 2.7. I did a comparison vid showing it vs. the older F103.

    Getting one of these will surely reduce the amount of "Accidently drained transmission fluid" threads.
