Mine is not a high end unit...it's predominantly HDPE plastic, and
sells in boating supply houses for about $35. The final 4 feet of
plastic sucker is a little more rigid, and I usually get a good
drain of the sump. Well, I always get a good drain of the sump.
The car is parked with a slight nose up (1.5 to 2 degree) when I
drain it. With VW diesels, this is a pretty good way to get the
sump drained. But apparently, it didn't work OK this time.
I figured it was time to call upon the masses, figuring that
someone in the group has done this thousands of times, instead of
my scores of times. And that I might learn something...
