Changing your own oil is a great way to save money and pamper your car; but for many people it's just too much hassle. The Spectre Easy Access Oil Change kit, once installed, takes the work out of changing your own oil and make the whole process simple.

Combined with an easy install and the time saved, this kit is a great way to save money on quick, easy oil changes.

How Does It Work?

Why continue to change oil the old-fashioned way? That involves jacks, ramps, drain plugs, and hot oil, and when you’re all done, chances are you’ll end up getting more oil on you than in the drain pan.

The Spectre Oil Change System changes the way you change your oil by relocating your oil drain and filter to a handy spot at the top of your engine compartment. Once it’s installed, just lift up the hood, and in minutes the job is done.

The kit comes with a high-speed pump to drain the oil, an engine block adapter, an remote filter adapter, flexible tubing, and installation hardware.

Unlike siphon pumps, the Spectre oil change kit pumps the oil out from the drain plug at the bottom of the crankcase, meaning no sludge or residue is left in the oil pan. Just like a traditional oil change, the kit removes all of the oil and sludge--just without the hassle of getting under the car.

An Oil Change In Minutes

Once the kit is installed, this is how easy it is to change your oil:

  • Plug the pump into your car’s cigarette lighter
  • Pump out the used oil
  • Replace your old filter with the manufacturer’s recommended filter
  • Add new oil

It's that easy and only takes minutes.

In my boat, the oil filter is located like in any other engine, at the bottom.

Here's the deal, I was looking for a good way to move the oil filter to a different place under the hood and this kit did the job perfectly. The filter on my son's car is on the side of the engine block (Nissan 240SX) and located right above a section of the frame that has holes in the top. Every time I remove the filter, the oil drains out of the filter and enevitably into the frame (a big wad of shop rags or towels under the filter helps, but not always), then I've got oil draining from the frame for the next week, making a mess all over the driveway. Anyway, the pump thing with the drain tube running from the pan is unique, but not what I bought the kit for (I only used the filter relocator). Was impressed with the quality of the fittings and the hoses and everything hooked up like they said it would. The big plus though..... it's about one third the cost of any other kit out there (including those listed on Amazon.com)and it comes with adapters to fit just about any car. Been on the car now for about 8 months with no problems and has made changing the filter sooooo much easier and cleaner....... in fact decided to buy another kit from Amazon for my own car.

I purchased this more for the remote oil filter than the pump - the pump's OK, but personally, I'd rather drain my oil than pump it out.

The unit is very well made, comes with every imaginable fitting, and has pretty decent instructions - not that it's rocket science, but it helps to have some pointers.

I don't usually write reviews but I had to this time. This Kit is GREAT... The instructions actually read like they were written by someone who had a grasp of the English language. ALL of the parts fit and work exactly like they were meant to. Lots of extra hardware to meet any installation requirement. The designers of this kit knew what they were doing. The only thing I would recommend is to open the orifice on the filter side a bit. I used a Dremal tool. The slot from the fitting to the filter is a bit small and may restrict flow. Other than that GOOD job. It's good to see that someone can still build a quality product these days!!! I wish I had another car so I could buy another. This kit was the answer to all the issues I had with changing the oil and filter on my truck.

I installed this on my 2007 Ridgeline pick up. I mounted the Oil Filter Bracket on the inner fender wall (passenger side), drained the oil and pulled the original filter. There are five Banjo Bolts (bolt is hollow and has a hole in the shaft to allow the oil to go from the oil pan to the hose). I connected the oil drain hose and ran it up to the firewall where I attached the Oil Drain tube mount. They provide several crush washers to choose from.

The kit comes with five "filter adapter sleeves" of various sizes (basically a threaded insert that fits the center threads in a filter). I used the copper colored (close to rose gold in color) for the upper and lower filter adapter.

I ran the two hoses from the lower filter adapter, which screwed in where the filter originally was, up the upper filter adapter that I mounted on the passenger side fender. I used the provided zip ties to secure the hoses. The hose comes as one long piece and needs to be cut. I had about 10 inches of hose left over.

Since I did not like the idea of having to plug the pump into the power outlets in the cab and taking a chance that the surge of oil would dislodge the drain line from the container, I installed a 12 Volt outlet next to the battery. Now I can see everything when I start the pump and ensure no mess. I can also plug in a light if I need to while on a trip.
It has been two weeks since I installed the kit and around 800 miles. No leaks!

All in all I believe the kit is well manufactured and easy to install. The weak link may be the 12 volt pump, but there are plenty on the market if it ever fails.

Truthfully, I really did not buy this kit for its full original purpose. I have a bypass oil filter installed in my car and the oil return was going into the oil filler cap causing some problems. As recommended by someone else I decided to return the oil to the oil pan via the banjo bolt hose assembly included in this kit. That I could then use the pump to change oil was an added bonus. I did not (and do not) intend to relocate the oil filter, but if I needed to do that it would also be a great bonus.

However, the quality of the parts and assembly of this kit leave something to be desired. The first thing I noticed was the Teflon sealing tape used for some of the connections. It was very sloppy and some pieces of the tape were oddly discolored. Worst of all was that there were loose pieces of tape within parts that would have been exposed to flowing oil. They were still attached - but just barely. Many people prefer plumber';s paste because of the problem that Teflon tape can have in breaking loose inside an oil system. This could have been easily fixed by me if I were using these parts, but I wonder if most others would have bothered even if they were to use these parts.

Now, for the parts I am using I was a little concerned when the wire/hose ties included in the kit were so brittle they broke even before they were cinched down in place. Not a big deal since I have plenty of my own I could use.

When I opened the package I laid out all the parts on my workbench to make sure the kit was complete and just to get an overview of what was included. I had to leave the room for about 15 minutes and when I came back I found the pump had leaked out quite a bit of some oily substance all over my workbench. I don't think the unit is "used".
