Re: [DML] Re: Oil Changes

Dave, you bought a cheap oil extractor. Mine doesn't have that problem.

The instructions with my manual fluid extractor say to run the engine until
the radiator fans come on, and then shut the engine off and use the
extractor. That's what I do, and I've never had a melted part. (However, it
helps to wear gloves because the unit will get uncomfortably warm to hang on

And before you say they don't get all of the oil out -- yes, they do. I add
seven quarts each time after I swap out the filter.
