I'm finding out Lance! You've probably read the posts here and I agree, the hang over night drain technique works.

My problem is that the LiqiVac design sometimes pulls up oil into the pump assembly. Ever tried to clean that? I've used my extractor three times now and had that happen twice.

Anyone know if there is a good technique for cleaning that out. I plan on avoiding the next one by draining in two phases, but I'm bummed to have to do so...
