    Just swapped my F103N Fumoto valve for the new F133. The F103N is still fine if anyone wants it (might need a new washer). 4.0 V6 compatible. Free to a good home.

    F103N is good for second or third gen. I've got one as well if someone else wants it.

    The F133 drains much faster than the older Fumoto valves.

    I just pull the dip stick and blow. That extra pressure gets the oil emptied in a hurry.

    Do you have an access spot in your skid plate, and if so how easy is it to manipulate the valve release (I know I have 3 more oil change washers). I'll be doing my first oil change with my SOS IFS skid, and figured this definitely beats a socket, extension and wrench every 6k.

    You gonna do a video on the install/swap??

    Yeah my @Mobtown Offroad front skid has a circular opening and it's easy to move the switch on the Fumoto valve with the front skid on the truck. F133 vid getting uploaded in an hour or so. :thumbsup:

    Got a question for you all, I got a problem with my truck.

    While i was in ATL i drove an hour to grab some food. While i was sitting in the parking lot with my car idling, i noticed my ac start to get warmer. The temperature gauge was hot. So of course when i noticed that i the heat on to lower the temperature of the engine and that worked fine. I started to drive and the temperature started to go down. i drove home perfectly fine with ac on.

    I drove home yesterday from ATL to NOVA perfectly fine.

    Another instance happen today. I was driving perfectly fine. but while i was sitting in traffic the temperature gauge was slowly jumping higher and higher. but when i pressed the gas and started to move with traffic it went back down.

    Has anyone experienced this? And have any solutions?

    Have you cleaned your temp sensor since you went wheeling, and how does your coolant level look?

    I would start by checking your coolant level. Hopefully that's the fix.

    That happened to @UntamedTaco and can happen to cars in general in this heat. If you experience it again, put the truck in neutral and rev the engine to about 2.5k and hold it. That spins the fan and gets air flowing, and you’ll see the needle start to drop.

    Check your coolant level and see if your radiator is dirty as well.

    @EatSleepTacos, I purchased a mini impact to leave in my truck when wheeling because of you. Its a dewalt, the 20v max that runs to 150ftlbs. You think that will be enough for most trail things or should i just swap for a heavier one?

    No, i dont know how. LOL

    Coolant Levels are full.

    Radiator probably needs a spray down. Coolant says full, but looks lower than it was on friday.

    After seeing that picture I would just spray down the radiator, just watch your TSS logo, My truck was throwing check brake and check sensor codes after I dosed it in water the other day. They are gone now. But yeah, spray off your radiator, because your motor doesnt look dirty at all

    I try to keep one in my recovery/tool bin in the bed...haven't had to use it, but figured it beats if only for partial saving the elbow grease for unexpected wrenching needs, of course now I'm like, "Do I need a set of torque bars, and the 1/2" impact, too?!?"

    Damn it TW and over prepping mindset!!!!!!!!
    -For what it's worth with all that's going on this year, my better half certainly changed her tone on my prep mindset and provisions! = :dancingbacon:Good enough validation for me!
