Default Anyone ever seen this done?

I know changing the oil will sometimes separate the men from the boys.

I have never seen this done before though seems the girlie way of changing the oil. I think last time I changed the oil in our beetle it took 10 minutes more time spent looking for sockets then anything.

Instead of draining the oil pan they sucked it from the dipstick supposedly gets out 98% of all the oil doing it this way




Then on the VW beetles they have the canister with paper filter inside so you have to remove the canister to then change the filter so why suck the oil out? Your gonna have to remove it anyways

unless theres a bunch of plastic covering the drain plug on the oil pan...thats the only thing i can think of for not just draining the oil..ive got one of the suction canisters, its kinda cool, theres no mess to clean up...it works for just about any fluids, its a little harder on the gear oil tho....

Where's the fun in this? I still have a little residue on my hands from changing the oil in my van and car the other day. In the word of the Tim the Tool man "Arumg!" (if that's how spell such a sound).

There is no covers blocking the oil pan easy to get to. of course you have to run the car up on ramps due to it sitting so low anyways.

i've used those for things like the brake fluid resevoir on a master cylinder, or getting the fluid out of a power steering pump before taking it off, i wouldn't use it for changing oil though, i'd rather drain it and know that i got everything out

I know what you mean about changing the headlight. Had I know at the time is was that much work I would have let them do it using the warranty

I've seen those, it's not a bad idea at all but I don't trust it to get out all the gunk. I would rather spend a little more time making sure the job is done right.

That's all we use at work. The drain plugs are pretty difficult to get to sometimes without making a mess so our mechanics just suck everything out... it's definately faster to suck 98% than to let it drain out....

they work great on inboard boat engines. you can't get a drain pan under them. but on the truck I pull the plug. It gets all the junk out.
