Oil Extractor...so much for today's plan

Was planning to winterize and put my X2 away today, had everything all nice and cleaned up, just needed to warm the boat up to change the fluids then drain things.

Well, that was a great plan until my cheap oil extractor wouldn't suck any oil out of anything...at least there was cold Coors light nearby.

So I want to go buy a new pump this week. What's the pump/tool of choice? I'm not one to buy the high end tool, but rather the one that gets the job done at the reasonable price. Before I order something online, I'd really like to know what setup others are using with success and the fewest number of four letter words.

Thanks!
Doug

Search oil extractor on amazon.com and choose one of the highly rated ones. I use the OEM tools one and it works so much better than a drill pump or the cheap hand pumps.

I bought this one to do my first change a few weeks ago. Worked great. I bought a fitting at Fleet farm that goes into the oil change hose on the engine. Engine warmed took about 2 minutes to pull out 5 quarts.

Also I cut off the red/black ends and put on a cigarette lighter style end for a shorter run from any 12v outlet. My boat has one close to the back so it’s a nice easy job.

This one works good, sucked 10quarts of cold oil up in less than 3 min. I used a fitting to connect straight to the drain line.

I have the OEMTools extractor, and am quite happy. I've used it a couple of times, and 9.5 quarts is a really nice capacity. Sucks the oil out in a couple of minutes, no need for electricity.

I had an issue with it when I first received it and sent them an email - and got a call in return from an honest-to-God live English-speaking American who was quite nice, and sent me a brand-new one under warranty. For that kind of customer service, I'd pay extra next time.

The only issues with it are that it doesn't assemble quite the way you'd think - but once you realize the screw-down on the spout goes UNDER the hose and is meant to REMOVE it, not meant to go over the hose and hold it in place, everything becomes clear. That, and if the cap pops off the little vacuum vent, immediately remove the inner brass piece because if it gets sucked into the vacuum head, there's no way to get it out.

I borrowed one of these from my buddy to do my oil this weekend. Man, that thing is nice! Drained the engine quickly, then reverse the pump and it pumps all the old oil in to your disposal container. Very slick. I did discover that it puts out quite a bit of flow when the hose accidentally popped out of my gallon jug and sprayed oil on my driveway. Lesson learned- always hold the hose securely in your used oil container.

Any issues with the hose not being long enough?

I use one like this on several of my boats including my X2. Has worked great.
