Re: Changing Oil - an easier way?
One thing that is odd and annoying is that my 3GM30F does not have a drain plug in the pan. It IS quite accessible and would be a simple and more effective process to drain oil out into a container but I have to go through the PITA of sucking it out through the fill tube. It probably would have cost an extra 25 cents for Yanmar to put a drain plug in! I bought one of those "ball" shaped vacuum gizmos. It works, which is about all that can be said about it.
