I have a X9 with a MCX and the oil drain hose end is leaking. The dealer was going to change it but said they have to raise the engine and it is about a 5-7 hr job. Is that true? They were to change it as per purchase agreement. They cut off the crimped end last time and inserted a brass fitting and hose clamp.

Thanks

well last time they cut off the crimped end and did that and it still leaks.

So I guess if you want it to work they have to get the old one out.

My personal choice if it was down to that would be to drain the oil, cut the old one, remove the stub and put a drain plug in it.

Then I would topside the majority of the oil with a pump, and catch the last bits in a low pan.

But that's just me.

Threading in a new hose to the block might be an engine out type job.

i have trouble getting out all the old oil out of the pan. the drain hose out the transome hole is painfully slow. You mentioned a pump? what kind of pump would you use to get all of the old oil out?

OH Boy;

The best one is the round bulb type, I got mine on Cabalas.com.

It works great, when I first used the drain hose it was no good and took forever. Just be careful about the hose getting caught in the dip stick hole.......it never happend to me with that model. Plus, this thing in my opinion removes about 95% so the balance is no big deal. Then use the Mobil 1 or AC Delco PF1218 as the filter with Shell Rotella 15W40 and your all set.

I had the same problem with my 209. Yes you have to raise the engine to get at that fitting. First time my dealer just tightened it. It started leaking again within a year. Just got it back from their third try at fixing the leak. Fingers crossed.
