Someone on here suggested the oil extraction thru the dipstick method. I might go that route next year.
But is there a reason the oil does not seem to drain out as well as one might think? Or some trick to improve it, that i don't see? Or, is the extractor the way to go?
You can use a 14 Gage insulated industrial wire and pull it up on the tube to clear out the blockage when you draining the hot oil out. That works very well. Try it next time. Just remember, you have to take the oil cup off when you drain the engine oil. I tale the filter of to.
If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the action of others to decrease your good manner, because you represent yourself not others.
