[Vwdiesel] Sucking Oil

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...
