Be sure to also compare the length of suction tubing to the dipstick length. This will quickly tell if you are reaching the bottom of the oil pan.

My experience is the oil extraction works best with warm but not hot oil. Too hot allows the plastic line to collapse on itself. I am looking for a metal pipe to replace the plastic line that goes into the dipstick tube.
