I finally did this diy today after months of reading this thread over and over. The victorys diy pump worked great!! Although maybe I should have gotten the wider tubing then 1/4Ē it took a while to pump. It was so convenient having it threaded into the fill hole and then closing the valve and leaving it connected during the drains. I decided to drop the pan and do it the right way! I cleaned and dried the bolts and threaded holes and torqued to spec. I was very happy none of the bolts broke on me lol. Fluid was dark brown with sludge on the magnets. My only concern is after doing the math later I think I refilled about 0.75q MORE then I drained. 😬I didnít think about it while doing it because i measured what came out and then refilled the same amount plus 0.5q cuz I figured it was all going to be draining back out anyway. But yeah after it was done I added it up and seems like I refilled 0.75q more then was drained. But I followed all the steps and on the final drain through the fill hole to level it off with engine on in park I put the plug in after it turned into a tiny stream before it started dripping.
