Them valves work pretty? I’ve always had concerns about them opening on their own or leak.

That is pretty much what I do. Not with a screw driver, but with an awl. I have a Fumoto valve on the oil pan drain so I run a tube from it to the bucket under the filter and let them both drain at the same time.

Never an issue. Ever. I have used them exclusively in 4 vehicles- Subaru, two Jeeps and the Ford. One of the Jeeps was an off road machine. Long arm lift, 35s, lockers, etc. It went wheeling. I had a oil pan skid but it did not cover the valve, just the bottom of the pan. The valve never came open or leaked.
They have an O ring much like the Ford OEM plug and the handle sits in a detent. So you have to lift and twist to open it. There is also a locking clip if you want to prevent it from lifting as added insurance. I've never used it except on the Jeep.

I just put a zip tie around the valve, in stead of buying the clip, for a little insurance. Never had a problem to date!!

Iíd loosen it before I poked a hole in it. That way youíll know it will come off and you wonít be stuck with an immobile vehicle because thereís a hole in a filter you canít remove... It doesnít happen often, but I have seen filters that had to be wadded up pretty good before they came off.

Yeah, good point @Sport45 . At least to see it move. Just like pulling the fill plug on the transfer case before the drain plug. Ask me how I know. Lol.

Good advice!
I have had a few oil filters "wad up" on my over the years when changing oil on a 'new to me' vehicle before. I remember 1 time I wasn't sure I was going to get it off but once it crushed there was no turning back and I won in the end... I learned then to always use a full band style filter wrench and to ALWAYS put it right at the attachment end of the filter IF I wasn't the one who put the filter on the vehicle. It can still wad a little but it doesn't crush so much you have to get the big channel locks out!

+1 for Fumoto valves. We've been installing them for years on all sorts of vehicles, never once had an issue. It's the only way to go. I get the "N" version on ours (which provides the hose nipple for hooking a hose up to it). Hook up the hose, put the hose in your oil change pan, open the valve, drain your fuel water separator, go back in the house for a while and come back. Swap the filter and fill with oil. Doesn't get any easier (or cleaner). The only thing cleaner is our Euro vehicles with 100% topside oil changes (Mityvac oil pump outs & topside filter cartridge).

you must be referring to the little TDI engines. Does mityvacing the oil out work?

I also run a 99.5 MK4 1.9 ALH TDI and drain it out the old school way but have heard of guys using the mityvac.

When refilling, start with 12 quarts and check the dip stick. There is always some residual left behind. For me, 12 - 12 1/2 quarts usually hits the full mark perfectly.
