I use a Pela oil extractor. You just put the tube down where the dipstick goes. You can get them from their website, or places like Amazon, Ebay, etc. Very easy to use. Pep Boys used to carry Mobil 0W-20 oil, not sure if they still do. And I also use Rhino Ramps which work great.Mstaples said:Also, is there a hose-and-pump that can be used to drain the oil, instead of yanking that plate off from underneith the car?
My oops and apology. But I replied such in a similar thread way back when...HafNHaf said:IT: i looked in the other thread for your comments about the silicone, but couldnt find anything.
A "stuck" filter in a car is a horse of a different color, seconds of additional work.HafNHaf said:back when i was working as an aircraft mechanic...<snip> we went through about a year of stuck filters.
Good, else you'll be "sticking" your hand in your pocket(s) and hoping that their deep :!:HafNHaf said:anyway, thats my story and i'm (not) sticken to it!
I usually change the oil as soon as possible after getting home, while the engine is still hot. That way at least the smaller crud may still be in suspension and exit with the oil. It drains faster too, just have to be careful not to burn yourself!kapps said:the bad stuff usually settles to the bottom.
