To date, I've done about 30 oil changes on Mercedes, Porsche, Volkswagen, Jeeps and a Honda, with no problems of any type and everything is still working well. Very dirty, but functional. As both the pump and oil hose attachments are gently flared, it allows them to maintain a good seal even as they age; the downside is the pump in particular is not strongly attached to the tank, and it probably the only thing I don't like about the unit.
Compared to the old pull-the-plug method, the cleanliness of doing oil changes is far improved, and it's much easier handling the waste oil for transfer to a tank to transport for recycling compared to emptying an oil pan. The higher capacity is especially useful as you can drain most cars in one go, and for my diesel jeep, in a couple rounds; a smaller capacity unit would have to be emptied a half-dozen times for the diesel.
The pump is starting to show some aging, and I suspect in another year might need to be replaced; but amortizing the cost over so many oil changes plus the savings of doing it yourself has made this oil extractor a worthwhile investment, even if it needs replacing every few years.
. Hold the vacuum much better (does not mean you have to pump less)
. Less messy due to a singular tube
. A lot easier and clean to empty out the oil
. Easier to transport if you don't want to empty out before getting to recycling plant. But I would still recommend to empty the oil to containers first.
. Smaller and easier to store
. Need to pump a few more times to develop the vacuum due to the smaller pump. But once it is there, only need to re-pump after around 1 liter of extraction
. The pump just sit on the top of the bottle's rubber seal, so it must be vertically aligned to ensure effective pumping action. A bit tricky toward the end due to lesser volume of space still in the bottle after 4-5 liter of extraction
I had read another review here about how it leaked or the black portion of the tube cracked after a while resulting in a bad seal. As a result I decided to just empty the oil within a day or two of it being in there and spraying it all down with a bit of engine degreaser. It seems with a bit of care this will last hopefully.
Also of note, the capacity isn't huge so take that into consideration. My last car, an Audi S4, held a whopping 9.5 quarts which would present a problem here, but currently I am only dealing with a 4 quart capacity which makes this suitable. If I had a car with a larger engine I might look else where or plan on emptying hallway through.
Overall positive experience.
You put the extract tube in the car and pump it up. Go off and do something else for a while. Come back pump it up again. You will see the oil flow again and go away again for a while. Do this maybe 3 times and your done.
It does help if the car is a "little" warm, but it will work if it is stone cold, just might have to do the process a few more times.
Once your done, just pop off the top and put in a container and take to AutoZone and recycle.... I would buy this again with out blinking a eye.
