Nice job! Minor thing, the capacity is stated in the manual as being 2 gallons or 7.75 liters. I used an extractor that removes the oil through the dipstick so didn't have to get beneath it.

Thanks for posting this.

I just looked for one that held 8 or more quarts. My first was a "Topsider" made of metal but after many years of abuse it had a hard time holding a vacuum. I currently use a plastic one that seems to work fine if the oil is warm, not hot.
I bought this one based on its capacity and low price and the fact I only use it a few times each year:

Howvood, it's funny my old topside is gone too. I used on our boat years ago. I did the drain plug this time around because I installed a mag plug when I bought the van. It was as clean as I've ever seen a mag plug on a vehicle. Normally new vehicles produce a fair amount of metal...not this one. Very impressed!

Mine's air powered with a m113 breather hose that I put into the dipstick hole.
