Mityvac 7.3 liter fluid evacuator features stiffening ribs for added durability. The redesigned pump handle is stronger for heavy use and longer tool life. A larger base prevents the chance of tipping and spills in shop.

Customer Reviews

I could not get the tube far enough down the dipstick to extract any oil.
Tom Deppe
Other than my stated concern, the quality of the product is overall well made and does work.

I used this on my 2002 BMW and it seemed to work great, but the next time I went to use it- oil started coming out of the T-Handle where air normally is the only thing that escapes. I called the manufacturer, and they advised me that some synthetic oils (Mobil 1 in my case) can cause the seals in the lower part of the canister to degrade and will allow oil to bypass. They informed me that it would be covered under warranty- but Tool Topia is not working with me. When you call the line for returns, they have you leave a message- nobody ever calls you back either. I have called 4 times in the last 6 days- and nothing.

Don't buy this if you use synthetic oil, it won't last long enough for your second oil change.

I'd seen this evacuator in some car care catalogs I get, but for around $75 instead of the $52 Amazon charges. I generally am fine with going under the car, but I have an S2000 now and it's too low to go on my ramps. So, I bought this after reading many reviews.

In short, this works great. I got it in 2 days after ordering, and it was in perfect shape. I checked, and there were no cracks or crazing in the plastic where it was screwed together. The translucent plastic also appears to be very thick - I can't imagine the vacuum pump in this ever being strong enough to collapse it, as one review described. I work in an engine laboratory and deal with automotive tools daily - this is as high quality as most other tools you'd find in a professional garage.

I found the instructions to be just fine. They're only one page, but this is a simple device. In short, there are three tubes that come with it. The largest is designed to connect to the evacuator, and the other end connects to either of the smaller hoses. The small hose fit in the dipstick tube on my S2000, and it was easy to push it down to the oil pan. If you do it slowly, you can feel when the hose first touches the bottom of the pan. The engine oil was still warm from my drive home. I removed the oil fill cap on the engine and pumped the handle on the evacuator 10-12 times. The oil began to get drawn into the chamber quickly. I went inside for 5 minutes or so. When I came back out I had about 1.5 quarts of oil removed. I repeated the pump and wait routine twice more. By then I had most of the oil out and it was mostly sucking air. I did one more pump cycle to make sure I'd gotten as much as possible. According to the markings on the tank I had about 4.7 liters of oil, and the engine holds 4.8.

This oil extractor saves a ton of time. It sucks the entire 3.5 quarts out of my Prius in about 3 to 5 minutes. I know that it's getting nearly everything out of the pan because I put 3.5 quarts back in, and that brings the level right to the full line. You still have to change the filter, but I can catch the drips from that in a gladware container instead of a huge oil pan! If you have a European-style canister filter mounted on top of the engine, you're even better off!

I have had no problems with leaks, and the vacuum is very strong. You only have to pump the air out once to drain the entire pan.

If I were buying one again, I would get the model that allows you to pump fluids back out. Tipping the evacuator to fill containers for recycling can be messy, unless you're very careful. If you're buying this in order to save yourself a hassle, consider the reversible MityVac model :).

I ordered my Mityvac on 4-10-09, and received it on 4-14-09. Installation was a breeze, and it worked like a charm, that is until i had to empty the canister to make more room (my car, which is an Audi, holds a little over 9.5 qts of oil). I removed the plastic tube adapter that held the main evacuator tube in place so that i could open up the pour spout. Once the canister was emptied, i returned the the plastic tube adapter and for some odd reason, it was extremely loose, to the point where i had to put rubber bands to close the seal.

Also, i had to switch a rubber tube adapter (comes with 3) around for it to work the 2nd time since the 1st one that i used became loose as well and left an air leak between the dip stick tube and the main evacutation tube.

Overall it took about an hour for the process. Yes, it was less messy, and yes, it did remove 99% of the oil, but the fact that i had to Macgyver certain parts of the product for it to work again is the reason i gave it 3 stars.

I was planning on returning the product to Amazon but decided not to since i am not in the mood to repackage everything. Not to say that i am not satisfied, it was just more work than i expected, plus the fact that i had to MAKE it work the 2nd time by using rubber bands.

This is an excellent product. It really works best with Mercedes and BMWs where they also have the oil filter on the top of the car so you dont even need to get under the car to remove the oil filter. Ive also used this on my Audi, which it works fine, but you still need to get under it to get the oil filter out.

Also should point out, this wont work on some domestics because the way they snake their dipsticks into the oil pan. Clear example is the Dodge Ram 04. It comes with a tubing small enough to fit practically any car, but the dipstick on this truck snakes through to major curves so didnt work on that car.

But I can say it will work for almost any import or german car.
