    Default 12 Volt Motor Oil Changer

    I'm thinking about buying a 12 volt motor oil changer, one that I can suck the motor oil out from the dipstick tube. Any brand names? Any suggestions??

    Thanks

    I used a mity vac it worked real well and it's a lot cheaper than the 12 v ones. I believe it comes with a warranty also.

    Jabsco makes them.
    Don't get the one with the tiny hose that is supposed to go through the dipstick unless you want to spend hours or days changing your oil.

    i run a fitting with a hose connected to it off the rear drain plug on the pan (i have 2 side drains) out the back of the boat thru the drain hole where the rubber plug goes (jet) & into a bucket...tilt the boat up & ur good to go...when not in use, plug the hose end or cap it & lay it in the bottom of the boat by the pan...works great & u can change oil anywhere! ...just my .02 cents

    My boat also has a hose that reaches out the drain plug hole, works great.

    I bought this one a year ago:

    and the connections on it began to leak by the second use. Then got the drain kit mentioned above with the little hose that connects to your drain plug and pulls through the plug in the back of the boat.....1,000,000 times easier, faster and better. I will never use a pump again.

    i have a shurflo 12v that's mounted on a 3 gallon pail, with the 1/4" tubing through the dipstick tube. can't remember where i got it, i've been using it for 12 years on the swtd. as long as the oil is nice and hot, it will remove 8 quarts in about 1/2 hour or less. if the oil is cold, you'll be there for days.

    one of those drain hose deals, just like the one in the link above, was on my cruiser when i bought it. the engine ran fine, but there was oil all over the bilge. previous owner just kept adding more oil. hunted all over the thing for a leak, finally pulled the engine to get to the pan drain, and of course the hose fitting had loosened just enough to make a continuous mess (with the engine in the air, you could count the drips). that hose is no longer installed, as i don't care to have an oiled up bilge anymore. and on this thing, the only way to get to it to tighten it is to pull the engine...

    I have a syphen pump that works really well. Stick the tube in the dip stick hole, pump the handle on the canister a couple times and your off to the races.
