Every year I replace the transmission oil in all our vehicles. It typically requires removing the drain plug and catching the old oil. This time however I am using my DIY vacuum powered liquid extractor.
Enough of going down low to perform this job! Arghh!
Step 1: The Vacuum Extractor.
My latest tool for car maintenance! I made it from a water pump filter and an hvac vacuum pump.
Step 2: Preparing for Suction!
Step 3: Extraction!
From the exhaust of the vacuum pump water vapor is seen misting out.
