Re: C-Drive Oil drain - Alternative

Re milky oil: also for us just now, the oil seemed very slightly milky after an oil change in NZ about 50 hours ago. Now after about another 10 hours all seems fine. I also would love an explanation of the circulatory system!

Hi Rudi,

I commented on this in post #47906, which you might want to read. I suggested that 2-3 months with emulsified water-oil will not cause a problem and show pictures of my pristine drive shaft after 9 months of a "milk" bath.

I doubt that suction on one of the hoses will be effective as both are at the top of the upper unit and you'll just suck air once the oil level drops a bit.
