Will be getting one. Last change was at garage and I helped remove the engine undertray and it still took us both an hour to do my freelander.
Will still do a "proper" change again so any sludge at the bottom of the sump is removed fully along with checking the sump plug for chaff.

Been looking for one of these. Thanks

good idea but no good for oil change.... 0.2 L/min flow. average engine takes 4.5l... 22mins to empty if it works...

so....

is this powered by car battery? which would mean engine is turned off? which could lead to flat battery by the time oil is pumped out...

or am I exaggerating?

Exaggerating.....if this drains your battery you need a new battery.

You could also power it off a battery charger or any other device with a 12v dc output.

Basically same looking as one I've been waiting for stock at Amazon. Have to get this thanks posterposter, saves some time.

good price, I use one of these ,the engine needs to be hot before it will work well.

I do an interim change when i see the oil getting loaded with the soot from the exhaust gas ( EGR ) .

I think these are no different to those on Amazon and the reviews are quite good. The time will be reduced if you warm the oil up beforehand.

i noticed that about the oil. i have a similar one and once the oils warmed does it in about 5 mins

might be worth checking with someone who buys one first lol

just beware you will need to repair the battery clips there awful and fall apart. decent set on amazon for a quid or 2

Hmm. Wonder if I should ditch my pela pump and get one of these...

Heat added!!

Err, what am I missing here? :|.. take the sump plug out, and let the oil drain out normally, why the hell are you lot all using pumps to remove engine oil??? oO

Just my opinion. I wouldn't risk using this for car oil changes. It's almost guaranteed to leave sludge and other heavy partials in the system as these very quickly get pulled down by gravity when the engine is switched off.

I guess some people using these will also save time by not changing the oil, air and fuel filters as they can be more trouble than undoing the oil drain plug.

Having said that, this is a good price for a pump with a 3 year warranty and probably fine for decanting clean diesel and heating oil etc.

Does anyone know how loud they are when operating?

it most likely means that where garages have large oil drums or barrels they can simply pump the oil from the big drum into the engine. I can not see how this would hose would find its way down to the bottom of the engine and suck the oil out.

Surely this would be best used for replacing steering fluid, rather than a dodgy oil change.

Not unless you have a week to do it! 1.5 litres a minute for heating oil! It would take over 11 hours to empty a 1000 litre oil tank. No good for me I'm afraid

Anyone know if this will handle oil and water, mixed and dirty? I want something that can pump out the crud that collects in the bilge of a boat.

Could I use one of the to feed me cream of chicken soup? Using a spoon is such a faff

That one has "Don't run dry" on it, which means it most likely will not self prime, but will only pump fluid supplied to it. I expect the Lidl one can actually 'suck' so it could be used to hoover up spills and such like. Can anyone confirm?

Main dealers and independent workshops have been extracting oil via the dipstick tube for years. They use vacuum pumps which are better and you can buy a good one for about £45 (Sealey TP69). The myth that it is better to change oil the old fashioned way was debunked long ago.

I use both methods but always prefer a warm engine, drained through the sump plug. The plug is much larger than the dia of the extraction tool and gravity helps if the car is left of ramps for 30 mins whilst it drains.

It's ultimately up to the owner. Any change is better than none but imo, you can't beat the plug method for a proper job.

Flow rate is just no good

Some small citycars don't have sump plugs. You could also have a seized one; my old astra's one was stuck fast due to lack of oil changes over the years. Plus it's only £11 for the convenience of not having to climb under the car, get dirty, possibly spill oil on drive, quickly syphon off a little if you accidentally overfill etc. then you still have a handy pump for syphoning fuel, emptying pools/spas etc. No brainer for me.

For many years some people argued that a proper oils change involved the use of flushing oil. Before that some were convinced that the sump should be removed so that the oil strainer could be cleaned. All such notions were eventually consigned to the history books.

It doesn't. When then oil is removed, is easier to change the filter!


I will be getting one as my car has a under shield which makes changing the oil a pain in the backside. However, the filter is reached by the front of the engine.

It's a design flaw so it doesn't but the oil filter is easily to get at being located at the front.

The use of oil flushes is separate to this and has nothing to do with this discussion.

As you are likely to know, such flushes dislodged particles and block channels. However, as stated, the use of a flush deviates the argument in relation to the use of a dipstick channel pump.

how noisy is it? would it wake the neighbours up if i used it at 2am?

also how fast? usual response time is about 20 minutes.

Some BM's don't have sump plugs plus the Americans have been doing it like this for years.
