DIY: Cheapest Engine Oil Extractor, Drain Fluid Easily and Free

If you hate sliding under the car and getting your hands covered with dirty oil or damaging the oil plug, I will show an easy way to construct your own oil extractor free! The most difficult DIY oil change is getting underneath the car to drain the old oil. Now that is no longer an issue and I also make the DIY super cheap (it’s free)! Please share it with your friends.

If your oil filter is not mounted on the top, you will probably have to slide underneath the vehicle anyway. Still, the extractor eliminates the difficulty of wrestling with a stubborn drain plug bolt. Also, removing the drain plug often means having hot oil gush onto your hand. The oil extractor makes the operation easy, but if you do decide to do the traditional way, we have a different video to make it a little easier for you: https://youtu.be/S0Ndn4rdBMg

Some people may question the advantages of this method. You may not get all the oil out, you may not remove all the debris out etc. The counter argument is: but the oil filter will hold most of the debris. The oil is changed hot which means the debris doesn’t really have time to settle. Plus no matter what you do , there is still oil left in the engine, oil left in the pan. What do you think? Is draining better? Do you get most oil out? Does 2 cups of oil left in the engine really matter? Post your thoughts in the comments below.
