    Or get some rare earth magnets and just stick'em on. Got 2 on my oil filter, 2 on my oil pan, and 2 on my tranny pan. 2000 miles so far and they're still there!
    :D

    I used one of these Futumo valves on my Dodge diesel for more than 40,000 miles and never had a problem with it. Only time I had anything come close to contacting it was when the truck slid in to a 5 foot snow filled ditch and even then there was no problem.
