Was thinking about changing the fluids in all the various portions of the driveline, but I don't have a fluid extractor/pump. For those of you who have done it, what brand/model pump do you have? I saw a mityvac fluid transfer pump, but the reviews I read indicate that it's garbage.

Works very well, IMO. PITA to clean out, so I've only ever used it for extraction. I use a smaller pump for fluid replacement. <p>

Re: What fluid pump are you using (Needsdecaf)

Yeah, the one I was referring to is the small hand pump which is cheap, so it probably performs cheap. <p>I've heard good things about the larger mityvac pumps, but was trying to avoid spending a ton of money on something I'll probably only use once or twice.

Like when my dishwasher crapped out mid-cycle, it was nice to have a pump to suck the water out of the bottom. LOL.

I got a 13 dollar fluid pump from advanced auto. If it breaks I throw it away.

Wow. No offense, but lighten up, Francis.<p>I apologize for this post not being directly R-related. There are a lot of posts in this forum which, technically, are not R-related, but the poster drives an R and values the opinions of fellow R owners. You, yourself, have made posts here that have nothing to do with the R.<p>Anyways, thanks for the help guys, it sounds like the bigger Mityvac is the way to go, I didn't think about other uses like getting water out of otherwise difficult places around the house and such.

I use this pump for my jet ski and jet boat. It's very well made and works great. (sucks good)<br> <A HREF="http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=24770&pdesc=Marina_Pro_Oil_Changer&cname=Oil-Changers-Filters&aID=601L9&merchID=1009&r=view" TARGET="_blank">http://www.overtons.com/modper...=view</A> <p>

I got mine at wal-mart, works well. <p>I like the Mity-Vac for extraction, as it's easier to use...no need to balance a catch container, and you can pump the handle a bunch of times to create vacuum, then have two hands free to move the pickup hose around wherever you're extracting the fluid from. You can also use it to bleed brakes. <p>The hand pump works well, but sometimes you need like 4 hands to use it!
