Oil extraction vs. draining

I think this is a great idea considering it uses vacume pressure to extract oil. Not for the full drain though. I'd use the drain plug, empty it out, THEN use this little tool. I bet it'd suck .1-.2 quarts of oil out after your typical drain. That doesn't sound like much, but It'd bring peace of mind knowing I got ALL of the old oil out. Will

Will Granted, it takes a period of time to jack up the car and get under and crack the drain plug versus simply popping a hose through the top of the engine, but it takes warm oil about as much time to drain out as it does to pump the oil out, at least in my experience. In terms of cleanliness, that’s a different story. You’re definitely more prone to spillages and dripping when draining than you are when using a pump. the oil fill on most (domestic) cars goes onto the surface of a cylinder head, for the oil to drain through return galleries to the pan. some cars do have a direct to pan filler, or at least to a spot lower on the block. you typically aren't going to get a tube down a little oil gallery.

You are kidding yourself when you think while the engine is hot, either vaccum or normal draining will drain 100%, no way.

Draining out oil traditionally can prove to be time consuming and a bit messy; hence why visits to car garages are becoming more common. Car garages make use of oil extractors that neatly and efficiently drain old oil while charging a good sum of money for it. However, owning an oil extractor at home could save you frequent trips to the repair shops and a little money too.

Just wondering, which way is more effective extractor or drain plug. Thanks! I'll tell you what my Audi dealer's lead mechanic told me. They used to do oil extraction  The extraction of petroleum is the process by which usable petroleum is drawn out from Extracting crude oil normally starts with drilling wells into an underground reservoir.

The extractor seems like a good bet since you don't have to jack the car up and remove all the under panels. The oil fluid capacity on the Touareg TDI engine is 8.3 liters and the oil fluid capacity on the Audi Q7 is 8.2 liters. This is right out of the ELSAWIN manual.

For draining engine block sumps, as to whether an extractor is superior to draining depends on the car. On my Jag V12, draining the oil gets about 10 qts out; the extractor can pull out 11. On the new Xj8, the extractor can get 6 qts which should be all that is in the sump - I haven't tried to drain this one yet.
