Fumoto oil valve

Since Subaru seems to be using same engine from previous generations, is it safe to assume that the oil drain bolt is same size, thus I can use the same F-105 Fumoto drain valve from previous generations on the 2014 model?

I emailed Fumoto and they could not give me a definitive answer.

Thanks

Interesting because they told me F108 and I ordered one. Haven't had the car to put it in though.

Could be the 108, they gave me two numbers, F-108 or F-105

Please let me know as I want to get one before the first oil change. Thanks

The 105 has the extended nipple on the outlet. Both will fit the drain plug threads on the oil pan.

The ones with N on the part number have the nipple- every model has a plain (like 105) and one with the nipple for the tube (105N).

The question was 105 (or 105N) vs. 108 (or 108N). Fumoto told me 108 and told ForesterYes they didn't know then gave him both numbers

no, you can get either one with the nipple. the 105 is no nipple, the 105N is nipple. 108, 108N. obviously, the N in the model name is the nipple one
http://www.qwikvalve.com/size-chart.html
there is also 105S, the S means a short nipple.


there are two things that really matter, pitch being 1.5, and size

F-108: ENGINE OIL DRAIN VALVE 16MM-1.5 , 108N

F-105: ENGINE OIL DRAIN VALVE 20MM-1.5 , 105N


my 2012 forester XT uses the 20mm 1.5pitch. I have the 105N on my vehicle.

you can call your dealership and check what size oil drain plug you have for the 2014 CVT. 20mm or 16mm

Yes, I do believe it is the F-108. I will probably get the F-108S (with short nipple)

So what's the consensus?

F-105 or F-108?

Has anyone put one on their 2014 yet?

I ordered the F-108S from quikvalve but I'm waiting until my first oil change to install it.

Howdy RigBert!

Did you install the 108 yet? Quikvalve wants me to buy both and then return the one that does not work. They thought since the 2013's use the 105 I ould be safe with that but also said that Subaru has a tendency to use the 108. So no real concensus.
