Mine is from Griot’s garage and is a manually pumped version. Current versions are about $ 100, but are quality pieces.Ok Dan, which brand extractor do you have? I don’t know if I should purchase a mityvac or if I should go with cheaper versions from Harbor Freight.
To determine that, you first need to use the extractor...then see what you get when removing the oil sump drain bolt.Does this method work well for our CRV?
Most of us change the filter EVERY time. 🆒 💪why would you change oil and not the filter?
Because the maintenance minder doesn't say to...
Just please dont sell it or trade it in and screw over the next owner. Run it till it dies, then when you get half the life out of the engine as the others, you can come back with tail between your legs and admit your fault.Because using compressor takes longer to do it properly.
Because it is less risky to break the oil drain bolt plug cylinder walls of pan by using excessive torque.
Because what you can't see it is not considered best practice psychologically.
Because working on top of engine you don't need a car lift.
Removing the filter is needed every 20,000km but you need to jack the car up. Yes you can replace it every 10000km if you wish.
both methods are used and I really dont see your point @diyman.
If manufacturers didn't think it was necessary to drain motor oil they wouldn't incur the cost of a drain plug in the oil pan. And if oil filters didn't need changed they wouldn't be removeable.
