    Maybe thinner tube (Home Depot) and warmer engine will work - also when removing oil - they say - loosen the filler cap.

    Been doing a little google/youtube research - apparently the suction idea is going over big with dealers - makes oil change a no-brainer - wonder if they even bother changing out the oil filter?

    On the 3.8L eng the dipstick tube has a small bend in it before it enters the pan.... the hose I'm using should have easily made past the bend to the pan.

    The MityVac came with two different size tubes, and I have to use the smaller one. But I know what you mean by the "stop" and I sometimes have to plunge the tube up and down to get it past. I would try beveling the end of the tube and do make sure engine is warm.

    That's one more reason why I change my own oil. I have the oil filter on top on my 2009 Genesis. On the 2015 V6, several people said it can be reached from the top, even though it is near bottom of the engine block.

    Yes it can be removed from the top. The v6 has enough room between the block and the radiator ...

    I would think that a small removable panel could be designed to be easily removed to uncover the filter and drain plug. I am surprised Hyundai didn't design it this way.

    Agreed!

    Wish it was like on my Mercedes. Filter is right there under the hood which drains automatically when you drain the oil, spin off the top and replace the cartridge. Hard to even spill a drop even if you try.

    The dipstick tube is about 5/8. ID which serves as an oil extractor tube and therefor no need to insert a tube, just insert the Mercedes adapter into the top of the dipstick tube. The design is such that the dipstick tube is at the bottom of the lowest location of the pan. Fxxken Brilliant, can't get easier than this. It is so clean and simple I could change oil in a suit and tie.

    Not a bad idea but the dip stick tube doesn't go to the bottom of the pan...so you leave a lot of oil in the pan

    My guess is that since Mercedes designed the dip stick tube from ground up for the purpose of changing oil - it did go to the bottom of the pan - probably had its own little sump for gathering oil.

    On non-Merc's, you simply insert the plastic extraction tube down to the bottom of the pan. All the feedback I've seen indicates that the remaining oil is negligible.

    With the MityVac tube, and a little effort, you can get the tube to the bottom. Actually, the biggest problem is that tube is curved and it goes past bottom and back up again, so I just have to move the tube around a few times to make sure I got it all. I get more oil out via MityVac than I can with drain plug.

    Yep, eaxacly how it was designed. This is not the case on the Genesis and you do need to insert a small tube all the way down to the bottom of the pan.
