Anyone ever used one of these to do an oil change before? Saw some people recommending them on some of the Mercedes forums but I don't trust them snobs lol

I just bought one for the Capri to evac the oil from the trans. Seems to work well enough for me. I've used it enough in the last week or so...

lmao...thanks for the input guys....so is the general consensus saying it's worth the $80 to save the outrageous cost of paying $200 every time the "Service Plan A Due" light comes on? haha

They have a plate on the under side of the car that makes it a total pita to do an under car oil change. It's easier to suck it out the top. Not sure if it is all models but it is very common on mercs.

I was responding to Will, that you can't do a typical oil change like you can on a regular car.

That you would need something like this to do an oil change.

I have the 2010 C300 and it has 2 under body covers that need to be removed before accessing the drain plug and I am almost certain the same goes for the 350

I use one on my Audi.

I bought a miytvac off amazon for like $80. It works well, I just know that it doesn't get all of the oil out. I have drained the oil from the pan before (it has a drain plug, but they are designed to have the oil sucked out of the dipstick tube) and when draining the oil out of the pan, it takes just under 5 quarts to fill (like 4.8-4.9) and when I use the evacuator it takes exactly 4. But that little .8-.9 quart of used oil doesn't really bother me because I change the oil more frequently than spec anyway. Spec is 10k miles, and I usually do 5k. I don't trust oil to go 10k miles, and IMHO it's cheap insurance to make sure the engine lasts.

did you use the manual pump style? was it fairly easy? I've read mixed opinions on it so far trying to justify spending the extra money and buying the air type

I got a manual one, it's really not that difficult. I don't really have any sort of air setup in my garage, so I didn't really consider a pneumatic one.

This is the one I have:

I have one, Audi uses the high tech ones on all their cars, it can be cleaner but I still prefer gravity esp with being able to look at the oil and look for debris stuck to the plug.
