Anyone use an oil extractor on the 6.0?

I use a Pela oil extractor on all my other vehicles. It is a vacuum system that sucks the oil out of the sump through the dipstick tube. You can change the oil without getting under the car (if you have a top mounted oil filter, that is).

For the 6.0 PSD, the extraction tube on my current Pela (6000) is not long enough to go to the bottom of the sump. Before I go out and buy one with a longer tube, I was wondering if anyone uses an extractor on this engine and, if so, what brand works? I may go with the 14 liter Pela, which has an extraction tube that is about 46 inches long (I think).

You wont get as much oil out only using the pump. It is much better to pull the drain plug when its hot and then the next day put it back on. But I do us a pump to suck the oil from the filter housing, as much as I can get. That wont get you +2 quarts but it does help.

With the clearance we have under these trucks...whu on earth would you want to do that? Besides your drain plug has a magnet that could use checking each oil change also. You might consider replacing the OEM plug with a Fumoto drain valve...just remember to attach a small magnet near the fumoto valve.

Snow, ice and water in the driveway just to name a few reasons.

So using the oil extractor, it can not be attached directly to the dipstick tube, like on my Mercruiser engine, you have to stick a tube inside the dipstick tube?

The Pela extractors have a tube that you push down into the dipstick until it bottoms out in the sump. I think if you were to extract through the dipstick tube you may not get all the oil out, as the dipstick tube probably does not go all the way to the bottom of the sump. Don't know for certain, but seems that would be the case.
