    Oil Extraction Pump

    Does anyone have any experience of one of these fellows?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7L-Waste-...rk:10:razz:f:0

    As I have a driveway that is essentially the size of the car, ramps are not an option, so servicing would have to be done on a jack/axle stands - therefore I was wondering about one of these things to suck the oil out through the dip stick tube? I thought it could be handy for changing diff oil too.

    It wasn't me! A big boy done it and ran away.

    I bought the electric version. Works ok. Used it to remove change roof hydraulic fluid and pump the new stuff in. Also used it on the steering fluid. I am sure it works fine on the oil too but I have found that its actually cheaper to get it done for me rather than buy the filter and oil. Will see if I can find the model I bought on Fleabay. BRB

    This not the one I bought but its similar. What I will say though is do not pump water with it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-Elect...frcectupt=true

    If I remember right the bits where I could not reach the battery connections I used a battery charger to hook it up.

    I have one.

    I scoured eBay as the same one is available from many sellers at widely differing prices.

    Once you have one you will find yourself using it for all sorts of tasks you never envisaged.

    gearbox oil change
    diff oil change
    power steering oil change
    empty brake master cylinder before refilling with clean fluid
    empty radiator before changing hose

    empty toilet cistern before changing float valve
    empty waste disposal before removing it to unblock
    empty drain gulley before digging out this autumn's leaf collection


    and probably a few more I have forgotten.

    I have the 9litre one and the extraction tube could do with being longer as I stand mine on an upturned bucket.

    Oil changes are so easy now as the only prep work is lifting the bonnet lol. No getting under the car removing under trays etc.

    I would recommend the 9litre version if you have a V8 engine.

    Thanks guys

    I did glance at the electric one, but in the description it said that it wasn't suitable for used engine oil, only clean? I don't mind a bit of pumping action (says he with a schoolboy grin on his face........ ), so the manual one might be just the ticket. I presume that a longer extraction tube could be obtained if needed?

    I do have a V8, so the 9 litre would make sense - would I not need to drop the under tray to change the oil filter? I admit I haven't even looked to see where it is yet?

To do even just the oil the pump would have to stand outside the car on the ground whilst the pipe would go over the wing etc. However I am sure you have thought about all this.

    The pipe connects to the dipstick tube so you just stand up to do the job.

    The 9litre one is the same as mine.

    Fat controller, I don't think you would benefit fully with an oil extraction pump as the 4.2 V8 oil filter is under the car.

    I did wonder where it was - however, with me being disabled, and having a driveway that is quite literally the size of the car, I still think that this might help - yes, I would still need to get under the car to change the filter, but I would still have eliminated the draining of the oil into some sort of vessel and then having to get that vessel out from under the car (there is a small slope immediately in front of my car onto the pavement), and then somehow transferring the oil back to the oil containers; my thinking is that even having to go under the car to change the filter, this has the oil cleanly contained and easy to transfer and means that I am not spending too long flat on my back under a car waiting for oil to drain etc.

    That, and the cost is broadly similar to a suitable oil catch can.
