dump that oil in a container and evacuate the rest out.

Take the oil filter and replace it with new Orings, remove the tube from the dip stick...

Refill the oil, 5 ltr's in the oil filter area and 5 in the engine.
install oil filter

Crank engine..

I buy my oil from RMEuropean.com they also carry filters. i buy it when its on sale or i get a coupon.. free shipping in the lower 48. usually cost me 70.00 or so...
No climbing under the truck, no mess, just smooth sailing.

I haven't been under the truck in 3 years....
At 100k i'll take the drain plug out and see what i find...

trucks been running great with no issues.
I thought the engine takes 10 quarts, not 10 liters? I am more surprised in your case, as I imagine some oil is always left when you change it with this method. Or am i incorrect in assuming so?

I like the idea of a Mytyvac, just wanted to get confirmation from somebody who uses it such as yourself...

I have been using extractor pumps on all my cars since around 2001. Much easier and less of a mess especially when the oil filters are located on top. No need to remove skid plates and get dirty

+1 Fumoto is the way to go!

Could you post the part number for his for a 2008? and where did you get it from?

This is what I need so I don't have to drop the steel skid plate every time.

I got the one with the nipple. I have a six in piece of vinyl tubing I just put over the end of the nipple then reach up and turn the valve. Works awesome.

sorry, the valve connects right to where the oil drain bolt would normally be? And you just leave it on there forever? and when you want to change the oil you just add the hose to the downside and then turn it to flow?

Exactly. You can also leave the hose attached, just plug it so nothing gets in it.

Without it you need to drop the skid plate everytime you change the oil.. or the oil goes all over the place.

Installed my Fumoto Plug with my last oil change, I am excited to see how nice it works with this next oil change.

I dont know if this is the right place to ask about this, but I have a question about oils. I see that alot of people are running Mobile 1 ESP for their 3.0 CRd's. I am wondering if anyone knows of an oil that meets the MB 229.51 and also meets the VW's 505.01. My wife has the 04 Jetta TDI 1.9l and I have the 07 Grand Cherokee 3.0L CRD. I am would like to find an oil that meets both standards so I could buy it in bulk and also have the same oil for both cars.

The VW's says for the TDI it has to use VW approved 505.01 oil.

I had an 05 passat tdi that was specced for 505.01. I believe that the 229.51 would be fine in the 505.01 spec cars. 505 is an older spec than the 229.51 and it was created to protect the fragile camshafts in the tdi. Many did well using mobil turbo diesel truck in the tdi. I too, plan to use some Mobil one TDT in my om642 now that I have no dpf.
