So I returned it and have given up on this particular extractor. So for now, I am just going to crawl under the car. The old oil filters on the w115 essential requires you to go under the car anyway, so it is not really that big of a deal. But I had hoped to use it as a "treat" when doing the oil on the w124. Oh well.
Hmm, I've been using my Mityvac 8.8 liter fluid extractor for 8 years now with no issues. I do believe it is the 7201. Seems like the quality control went down hill.
