    Oil change help!!

    Greeting's,
    I have an '06 F12X and was evacuating the oil today. Got a whole 1.5 qt. out. Replaced with 4.5 before I realized my oil evacuator was @ only 1.5 qt. full. So I evacuated again and only got 4.5 out.
    No way I was running that low on oil. How do you make sure you've got ALL of the oil outta this thing. I changed filter too as I am changing to synth. This is why I am trying to make sure I got all out as don't want to mix with Dino oil.
    Thanks,
    Rod

    Rod, isn't there a rear port that all the oil eventually settles to? Did you attempt to siphon (if possible) from there?

    I remember Nitro mentioning somewhere that there is a rear port and he recommends checking the oil there. I am not sure if this same port should be used to siphon the oil out. I can't recall exactly where the port is, unfortunately.

    Yes on the aquatrax it has 2 places to check the oil level. There is one under the turbo in the back of the engine. You use your front dipstick to check it down there also.

    There is two places to pump out the oil from. One in the front and the other is in the rear on the left hand side. Be careful and don't drop the plug cause it's a pain to find.

    I got it guys. Thanks for all the help and advice. That rear sucka is not in the manual is it? That bugar is hidden. Anyways I got all the oil out and replaced with full synth.
    Going to the river/lake this weekend and it was time to change the oil and now it is time to go have some fun.
    Thanks again guys.

    ANd yes.. i just changed my oil last weekend and i dropped the oil cap in the hull.. and since it is plastic i couldn't just use a magnet to find it. I had to remove the side panels to get my arm under the engine and feel for it.

    Drill a hole in it and attach a cord. That way you wont lose it.
