    I plan to install the Fumoto oil drain alive at 5000 mile oil change (currently at 1500). Missed installing it when I changed oil at 1000. With Toyota care, I'm concerned dealer will mess up the calve or something when they do oil changes at 10, 20, and 30k. Anyone who installed the valve have issues with the dealer?

    Any way I can get credit ($ not pat on the back) if we did the oil changes ourself?

    My last truck, although not a Tundra, the tech thanked me for it. I did most of my oil changes but once in awhile did use the dealer.
    Maybe check with them first in case?

    You'll be fine. I for one don't like hot engine oil all over the place...neither do they.

    Huh? It makes it easier for them. Less of a mess.
