You've described the convenience of using a vacuum oil extractor and you don't even have to crawl under the car.Actually when you think about it, it's pretty convenient no more hot plugs to handle, no hot oil on hands and the best of all is you do not have to fiddle with re-installing the oil plug when completed.
Oil changes for the DIY has become a lot easier especially if do not have a lift like most of us. Crawl under flick the switch drain close complete.
That is for sure :thumbsup:You've described the convenience of using a vacuum oil extractor and you don't even have to crawl under the car.
Great!!!! Thank you for all your replies...
Now an idiotic question... All M103 engines have the same size drain plug regardless of displacement (2.6L and 3.0L) and where it was sent (eg. USA, Australia, or the Philippines) right????
You do have it right, not a big deal but a preference, not jacking up the car saves me only a few minutes..... not a big deal....do you jack up your car when using a wrench? it just feels a bit nicer to not have to worry about the bolt anymore... but only a bit...I really don't see the huge deal...With an extension, I never get any oil on my hands. Maybe a little on the socket, but that's it.
This is why I did wait for many years to try one. I thought I would find a few horror stories.... to this day, only misues stories..... I am in a field where valves are a major item, the fumoto's are very well made..... I think they simply realize that a very expensive piece of equipment depends on its functionalityand durability.I also worry about these things too...I don't know how they work, but you want to risk a failing valve ruining your engine so you can save a little oil on the hands?
