After watching a video online, I recently changed the oil on my VW Golf using a vacuum pump through the dipstick. It worked great and was much easier than trying to jack up and climb under the car. Has anyone tried this on the F-150 Powerstroke diesel? Photo of the vacuum pump attached.

And of course, just after I clicked "post" I saw a whole thread on this topic on the forum. Seems there is a baffle which prevents this method from working well on our trucks.

I believe somebody here tried it and could not get all the oil out. The base pan has some sort of baffle that keeps you from getting the tube all the way to the bottom.
