|Introduction: The primary purpose of this page is to illustrate oil changing using the LiquidVac. We have selected a 1998 E 430 to illustrate the procedure for changing oil.|
|Procedure: We begin by parking the car on level ground. You want the engine oil slightly warm but not up to full operating temperature hot. Open the hood, and locate the following items; dipstick/tube, oil fill cap. Remove the oil fill cap and dipstick. This allows air to get in there so the oil can drain out.|
it's time for the LiquidVac...
It may be helpful to make a 45 degree cut in the end of the LiquidVac tube to prevent it from sealing against the bottom of the oil pan. Fully close the hose clamp and pump up the LiquidVac approx. 40 times to build a sufficient vacuum. Then just insert the LiquidVac tube down the dipstick tube as far as it will go. When you feel it bottom out, you know you are there. When the tube is all the way in and the LiquidVac is pumped up simply release the hose clamp and let the LiquidVac go to work. You should see oil filling the tube almost instantly. It should take approximately 15-20 minutes for all the oil to be vacuumed out. During this time it may be helpful to inspect other under hood items.
|The LiquidVac will make a gurgling noise when it is done. If this has not happened by 15-20 minutes then work the pump a few times to assure there is still a good vacuum. Once the old oil is removed it's time to install the new oil. Install the oil fill cap and dipstick. Start the engine and let it run for a minute. Turn off the engine and wait 2 minutes. Check the oil level on the dipstick and add oil until the level is close to maximum.|
may also want to make a notation in your maintenance book indicating
the oil change, mileage, date and oil used.
That's all there is to it.
