Would you trust a EZ Drain plug for your GM?
DORMAN makes a EZ-Drain oil plug, wondering if anyone would actually consider installing one. I am looking at it as a possible way to drain the oil on my Bonneville without lifting up the front end. I can get under the Bonneville with lifting, but can't get enough leverage to break the oil drain bolt free.
The big fear is that this aftermarket part could fail, and if that happens the results would likely be a catastrophic engine failure.

Drain oil into appropriate receptacle
Push up and twist orange **** to the left to close the EZ Drain™ valve.
