Yes ... removing the Dip Stick housing should be straight forward with just 1 10mm nut/bolt.

Will try out this method if i still face difficulties sucking the oil.

For those that have been using this method,
does repeat removal warrant to replace the oring (at the bottom of the housing) from your experience ?
I certainly hope they can at least last 3x removal before replacement.


Thanks

I just replaced mine last year and Iíve been doing it that way since I picked up my car in 2013.

use 4x2 wood to climb up your vehicle then you can reach fumoto valve. that's what i do
spending 2 hours pumping for oil change is not convenient. I will rather jack up the car and finish it in 30min

I will time how long it takes to suck the oil out at my change. But my best guess is that it took only 10 minutes at most and was finished long before I got the filter off and replaced. By taking the dipstick tube out you can use a larger diameter hose as opposed to the size that fits down the dipstick tube and that is at a much high flow rate.

The 2Hr+ are mostly spend on "oil exploration" rather than sucking.

Even with my cheap setup,
If the sucking is continuous, i estimate it will takes <10min.

(The original tubing too soft, collapse easily. I'm using 1/4" kink-free PU tubing)

This is like the nth time this subject has been posted.
Since I purchased my car used back in March, 2014 I have never had the old pan drain plug off. I have used this oil extractor: https://www.amazon.com/America-5060T.../dp/B001445IZ8
I remove the dipstick, as in the video in post#13, and insert the larger hose in the hole. I get a little over 5 quarts of oil out. Put a thin film of silicone grease on the dipstick o-ring and install it. Change the filter. Fill it with a 5 qt. jug of Mobil 1 0W-20 oil, run the engine for a few minutes and then top it off with a little more oil. Never timed it, but it takes ~30 minutes total.
I have not changed the o-ring on the dipstick yet, so far no leaks.
Still using the same rubber gaskets that came with the oil extractor. I put a thin film of silicone grease on them also. I had to get a new vinyl hose, ~$0.45 a ft. at Ace Hardware. The original one became hard and brittle. I'm going to get a 3/8" ball valve to replace the plastic clip which after repeated uses does not work well.
Here's a good review video on it:

I tried using a 12v oil pump on my car a couple years ago. It worked on the BRZ but you had to push it in-out to try and vacuum up the rest of the oil. This risks scaping off plastic bits into your oil. When I tried it on my old 90's Toyota Camry it ended up snagging and biting the end off the tube. In the end I decided it was not worth the risk getting stuck in the tube.

With a fumoto valve I can get the job done much faster, less effort, less risk.

To be frank the Fumoto valve leaves more oil in the pan than the drain plug, so nothing is perfect. Still, I also have a Fumoto for the convenience.

This whole thread:



On topic - I live in a condo, so when I had my BRZ, I bought the Mityvac to do the oil change without needing to jack up the car.
It honestly took so long that I ended up selling the Mityvac after a few oil changes, and this was WITH removing the dipstick tube to allow using the larger-diameter tubing.
