Why? The drain plug is easy to get to and I think more of the crap in the bottom of the pan drains out better through the plug than a sucker.

Change kit was designed for people draining oil in the city or suburban areas where space is at a consraint. No access to a lift or jack and no pan to drain oil into, makes the change kit ideal. I wouldn't bother with it myself, if I had no way of draining oil, I would take it in to a lube shop. But everyone has their own ideas that work best for them. Drain ON!

Is yours a 4wd or 2wd, mine is 4wd and I dont even have to have a jack. I just slide under it and pull the plug and let it take a leak and unscrew the filter while its draining. Did it last weekend and 15 min and I was ready for the road again.

Those can be handy for changing oil on a boat engine where space is tight and you can't access the drain plug. I wouldn't recommend to use it on your car or truck engine as your engine is probobly driven in dusty conditions compared to a boat and the oil is going to have more contaminents. Also you put so many more miles or hours on a vehicle over a boat that the oil in the boat never gets dirty between changes.

yep i agree theres no reason to use one on a vehicle especialy a powerstroke its to easy to change the regular way and you get the crap out of the pan and i dont think youll find a shop anywhere that sucks it out either it just doesnt make scense shops do it on axles though so you dont have to reseal the diff cover thatd be the only reason to do it

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry
