    Can I suck Oil out?

    I want to do intermediate oil changes on my SDV8. I have a suction pump but cannot get a tube down the pipe. I was wondering if there is another way? I will drop the oil for normal changes but for intermediate changes sucking out will do.

    Whilst I haven't done it, I understand that the tube is meant to attach to and seal at the top of the pipe.

    Thanks I will give this a try, have a vacuum pump so just need to organise some tubing. I will advise. My aim is to reduce dilution, tested oil last service and it was at 6% which although RR accept I feel is a little high.

    You need to make up an adapter to seal against the top of the tube. I have done it a few times with no issues.

    OK all good managed to change using the factory option of suction. Will send oil off for testing. Easy as purchased pump flee bay and with slight modification was able to empty oil. Will change filter at normal change which will be at the dealer.
