I use this in my marine engine fluid & filter changing as well as transmission fluid changes. Works great with removing marine engine coolant fluid from the exchange tanks on gasoline & diesel engines. Also very good on all make/model four stroke outboards.

I agree with earlier post, replace the hose clamps with stainless steel and I replaced the hose with a 6' length of reinforced clear PVC hose.

Yes I have recommended to other marine professionals.

Change the hose clamps before using

I'm absolutely Livid right now. I just cleaned up oil ALL over my garage. The plastic hose clamps are complete garbage. Hose popped off first use and sprayed oil all over the garage....Read complete review

I'm absolutely Livid right now. I just cleaned up oil ALL over my garage. The plastic hose clamps are complete garbage. Hose popped off first use and sprayed oil all over the garage. To save 2 bucks they used absolute garbage hose clamps that DO NOT WORK. Did you even test your own product! If you buy this install metal hose clamps before you use it. Gonna try and get my money back!!

    PUMP IS TO TOP HEAVY AND THE FITTINGS AND CLAMPS ARE POOR. THE HOSE CAME OFF WHEN DICHARGING OIL AND MADE A GREAT BIG MESS IN BOAT. THEN BUCKET TURNED OVER IN TRUCK AND MASE ANOTHER MESS. TOOK 45 MINUTES TO CHANGE OIL AND 4 HOURS TO CLEAN BOAT AND 1 HOUR TO CLEAN TRUCK.

    Comments about Jabsco Portaquick 12V Oil Changer:

    Heed the 'comments' herein very carefully. Do replace all the plastic hose couplings before use with metal parts. Any hardware store should have them. The supplied plastic fitting & adapters will not stand the pressures and will catastrophically leak hot oil- usually all over engine room. Used four times on my sailboat diesel before needing new impeller. After eight uses, the motor burned up and needed to be replaced. Try not to reverse the pump as it destroys the pump's impeller, rather, just empty the tank. Nice idea.....poor implementation with cheaply constructed parts.

      • Poor Design

      Comments about Jabsco Portaquick 12V Oil Changer:

      The basis is a flexible impeller pump. As I was installing my 3rd , maybe 4th $45 impeller I was bending the vanes in the direction of the rotation before installing, as one would do for all flexible impellers.

      Then it hit me. Reversing the flow (to empty the bucket) quickly destroys the impeller.

      If I am wearing on this, please correct me but I don't think these kinds of pumps are intended to be reversed.

      I second the hose clamp review. Very poor design. If you are flipping the switch toward off (middle position) and happen to go past middle to reverse, you will have oil all over your garage /bilge/driveway.

          Don't waste your $$ on other products, I've owned them. Spend the $$ once and you won't regret it. Going through the dipstick with the engine warmed up, this pump emptied the oil pan in less than 5 minutes. The other lesser pumps, are a waste of money. Also once you get the oil out, just put the tube in a bucket that you want your waste oil, flip the switch the opposite way and it will empty your bucket that it's ready for the next time.

                  Replace hoseclamps with heavy duty metal clamps due to high pressure created by pump. Otherwise when you reverse flow you will have a big mess to clean up.
