Is it ok to remove the engine oil from the 2.2 JTS with a suction pump? I've seen contradictory advice on this.
As mention, you never get all the oil out, it hides away in the nooks and crannies, but there won't be more than a few cc's left.There are a number of threads on this Forum suggesting you cant get all the old oil out from the top, but perhaps you dont get quite all of it out from the bottom either. Since I'm not someone who relishes the idea of doing an oil change I suspect the ease of the top method will mean I do it more often and therefore will be better for the engine in the long run.
Haven't done it before. Do I need to buy a tool to remove the filter?
No problems in over eight years with her indoors Krakin' Korean sump drain plug.:thumbup:It is a rubbish idea to have sump plug with M13 socket.
I have to smash it to move. Now It works for draining.
22JTS plug is not the same to 19JTDm.
It is still.As mention, you never get all the oil out, it hides away in the nooks and crannies, but there won't be more than a few cc's left.
The tool you need for the oil filter is this: Laser 2830 Filter Wrench - Metal Band:Amazon.co.uk:Car & Motorbike
Nothing better, and I've had several different types. Some one did say it was on offer at Aldi/Lidl the other week.
The thick oil full of contaminants and broken down oil additives that often collects in the lower part of the sump.Not sure what sludge exactly means. There also exist some micro metallic derdis resulted from engine friction.
Oil sump pluge is always magnetized to keep them. Not sure how to suck it from the top. It is one of sump plug purposes.
