Because an ordinary sump oil pan plug has to be unscrewed from the sump oil pan again and again to change the oil, this can lead to stripped threads and a broken plug. Stripped threads are a very common problem and repairing this can be very expensive. Furthermore, broken threads can cause serious engine damage. The oil drain plug of Femco® Drain Technology eliminates stripped threads, broken seals and seized sump/ oil pan plugs, all without having to use tools!
Stripped threads and broken sump plugs
Common problems with oil change are stripped threads and a broken sump/ oil pan plug, which is usually caused by turning the sump/ oil pan plug backwards incorrectly or too tightly. This may result in a stripped thread, which can lead to an unusable plug and serious damage to the engine. A stripped thread can also cause the sump/ oil pan plug to leak. Another thing that occurs often, is the sump/ oil pan plug breaking and a broken plug is difficult to remove. Replacing damaged oil sump threads can take a lot of time. Because the oil drain plug from Femco® is installed only once, you can prevent damage to the tread and to the sump/ oil pan. Furthermore, our oil drain plug also puts an end to the nightmare of broken plugs.
Leaking sump plug
As a result of a stripped screw thread or broken seals, the sump/ oil pan plug can leak and this is awful since oil is of vital importance to the engine. Oil not only reduces the friction between moving parts, but it also reduces wear and cools the tank, preventing overheating. Insufficient oil in the sump/ oil pan can also cause damage to your engine that cannot be repaired. The Femco® oil drain plug prevents the sump/ oil pan from leaking and and makes oil changes quicker, easier and cleaner. For that reason our oil drain plug is one of the must haves when it comes to car parts.
Tools to change the oil
When changing oil, you need the right size ring spanner to loosen the sump/ oil pan plug. Often the wrong size is used, which damages the sump/ oil pan plug. The threads can also be damaged by turning the sump/ oil pan plug back too quickly after oil change. Stripped threads, broken plugs and a damaged sump/ oil pan are therefore common problems. Because you do not need any tools with the Femco® oil drain plug, you can quickly and easily change the oil and you do not have to worry about damage to the thread or the sump/ oil pan.
