I've tried several other vacuum pump brands - the vertical one from mityvac is the best I've used other than real vacuum pumps like a gast coupled to a tank.

I recommend extending the hose if you need to.

I used this one for the first time this year, and it works great. Not a single drop spilled.

2-You have to change the transmission filter.
3-Add 3 quarts +/- to fill.
4-15W40 Rotella is fine to use.
Nope, It's a metal mesh filter that can be completely cleaned.

It looks like metal mesh on the outside, but the inside looks like a pleated paper filter. Am I wrong?

Dan,

Do yourself a favor and never buy a drill pump. You will save yourself a ton of time by spending a bit more for one of the oil extractors that many people have posted on here. You never have to worry about priming or power with these type of pump oil extractors.

Personally, I didn't want to get an electric pump because I didn't want to have the requirement of having power to do my oil change. I use the topsider and it works great!

The other "vac" on here is a bit more expensive and I hear works great as well.

you are wrong it is all metal inside and out.. and unless you had a catastrophic failure leave it alone. I took mine out there is no value add to doing it... unless you want to spend a couple more hours fricken around in your boat...

It's 100% metal. I had bought a new filter thinking I would need to change it when I changed the oil in the trans. As it turns out it's cleanable and reusable. I now have a spare sitting in the shop.

Ok thanks for clarifying that. Is it magnetic in there? That's about all I think that a metal filter could do as far as collecting debris.

Should it be cleaned at all with a change?

It is not magnetic. I believe the purpose is to trap debris down to a certain micron level.

I change my trans oil every other year and I do it through the filter port(I get a lot more fluid out over using the dip stick hole). While I have it out I rinse it in either gas or use brake cleaner and then blow it out with air.
