[Canadian Tire] 6.5L Manual Fluid Extractor $107.19

For the oil change DIYers especially if your oil filter is on the top of the engine.

To get the most oil out, I suggest to have the in an angle towards the dipstick.

I have this one from princess auto https://www.princessauto.com/en/6-litre ... 0008381725 it goes on sale for sub $100 IIRC, but probably pretty similar.

If you are a weekend mechanic or like to work on your cars these things are life savers. I've used mine to drain bad gas from the tank, drain gear oil from the rear diff, drain out transmission fluid to fix a leak.

Ahh seems like the sale is showing up on certain locations only. GTA locations have it on sale.

Weirdly enough, CTs in Halifax and Vancouver have it on sale but not in Ottawa/Quebec location.

So if I get this I don't need to get under the car and remove the drain bolt?

I can just suck the old oil out and pour in the new one? My oil filter can be removed by just taking off the passenger wheel so this would be ideal.

Any downside to this versus draining with the drain bolt? I'm guessing it won't remove all the old oil compared to draining.

This is a massive can of worms. Some folks say it isn't as good leaving some in the oil pan, others say it does a better job.

I have done it on quite a few vehicles I own and never had any issues. Most Honda's have their oil filter near the passenger wheel well. A lot of Euro cars have the oil filter up top (cartridge style).

What's the steps to dump the waste into a jug? Can you stop the pump mid way at around 4L?

My understanding of the word "manual" is that you are the pump. Stop when you want.

This is a vacuum pump. You build pressure manually using the bicycle pump. But is there a hole you can cover to stop the flow?

Something must be wrong with the version you have. Check for leaks as all you need to do it's 2-5 pumps to get going and it will drain itself with the occasional pump every minute or so. I have never had to keep pumping. That being said I have the mitivac version and used it for 5 years + and it's been great.

Do this hoses fit into gas tanks? Asking for a friend.

Can't comment on this version but most versions should be able to reverse the flow, so you flip a switch and can pump out, this way you flip the switch to stop the suction. Blocking holes etc with hot oil is messy and you don't want that

The one I posted that I have from princess auto has a lever you turn to open or close the system, also a little spring loaded button on the side if you want to let off a little pressure. Once I turn the valve or hold down the button the vacuum only takes a few seconds to dissipate and the fluid stops coming. That one also has a nozzle on it for hooking up to your air compressor, I haven't tried that option, but it would take the manual pumping out of the equation if desired...

Good to know, there is a red lever on more expensive 8.5L model, but don't know about 6.5L.

Yes, but given your alternative is to kill yourself while pumping for a while, then removing a wheel.

I'm gonna say, driving it up onto a ramp may be less exhausting and less work/hassle...

I'd recommend getting one with reversible flow, so you can pump the used oil out into jugs. Having to pour the old oil out is a good recipe for making a giant mess.
I have the Mityvac 7201 - a bit more $ but worth it IMO
