I don't think you need a lift but i have one. The hose is long and flexible. When i get to use it I will post to see how it does on lift and not on a lift.

Metal suction guns are crap.
Refer to the one I posted.

OK, now I feel really stupid. I have the Wevo trans cooler and spray bar, never even considered the fact that I have a built in pump for fluid changes. You just made my day!

I just tried out this OEM Tools pump and it worked flawlessly.

Pour in three quarts of Swepco, connect the hose, pump a dozen times and stand back. Five minutes later the reservoir is empty and the transmission filled. Unscrew the included connector and the job is done.

At $135 it isn't cheap, but I've thrown away half a dozen $15 pumps and burned up untold amounts of paper towel cleaning up spills. I wish I had this a long time ago.

Try the Motive one. Similar and works great for under $90.

I'm bringing this thread back up because today I got around to putting my Swepco pump thing together.

My original plan was to put the pump and reservoir inside a 5-gallon bucket, for easy portability, but the bucket just wasn't the right shape. I sized up a plastic storage box, but then hit upon the idea of just making a handle to attach to the motor housing with the reservoir attached to the handle.

I'll need to make/find a cover for the reservoir so I don't get debris in it while the thing's stored inside a cabinet. But the basic idea is simple -- a reservoir with a screened drain, an impeller pump, and a line with a hook that can sit inside the fill hole for the transaxle.

I've tested it with water, and the $700 (but $50 on Ebay) pump produces enough pressure that I'd worry about it shooting back. But I suspect that will slow down with the more-viscous gear oil. Still, maybe I'll fit one of the barbed holders from one of my old pump setups to make sure it doesn't jet back out.

I've got some Swepco on order, and I'll report on the thing when it's been tested for real. The cost was under a hundred bucks, which is ridiculous when you compare it to the price of some tube and a funnel, I know -- but that was pretty much the point of my original post.

I had a slight grind in 2nd so I did the swepco change, and now it's way worse. Never changing the fluid again.

Let's not get crazy? Changing gear oil is a good thing and should be done as part of regular maintenance. The fact that you have a crunchy 2nd gear indicates there's more to it than just gear oil

Make sure it's mahogany sawdust. It's the most prestigious and I have it in my apartment.

Unless you're changing gear oil several times a day, anything beyond a decent suction gun is total overkill.
Particularly if you have a lift. 10 min job every few years.

But, nothing about non-appliance car ownership is rational! Engineer on!

I changed the Swepco today, and shot video of the pump in use. When I was done, I realized two things: 1) It now only takes about 72 seconds to fill the box, and 2) Watching 72 seconds of a reservoir emptying is super boring.

So I talked over the boring footage, and here's the video:

I bought this hand pump 30 years ago. I can refill with car on the ground. 30 pumps & let it sit for a while so the oil flows over the gears. a couple more pumps till it oozes out the fill hole.

don't forget, remove the fill hole 1st

A small water (fluid) pump from Harbor Freight. I have my friend (professional mechanic) power it using 12V (battery).
pretty much similar to Gear oil change is always a pain in the neck
