It will remove oil and sludge through the dip stick tube, eliminating the need to crawl under the engine.

How to Use Jabsco Porta Quick Oil Changer

  • Run the engine approximately 5 minutes to heat oil (minimum oil temperature 140 Deg. F; maximum 185 Deg. F). Shut off engine prior to oil removal.
  • Push the 1/2" suction hose onto the pump inlet hose fitting. Position one hose clamp on the end and tighten to secure the hose to the hose barb.

 If using the 1/4" dipstick probe (instead of the Female Garden Hose Connector):

  • Insert the probe into the 1/4" x 1/2" (approximately 1" long) rubber bushing until the end of the probe and the bushing are flush with each other.
  • Slide the hose clamp over the end of the 1/2" hose and position the end of the plastic probe, with bushing attached, in the end of the suction hose.
  • Slide the hose clamp so it will be approximately centered over the probe/hose bushing.
  • With pliers, squeeze it together very tightly to affect a positive airtight seal.

If using the Female Garden Hose Fitting:

  • Install it onto the end of the 1/2" suction hose by inserting the 1/2" barb fitting into the hose.
  • Secure it by screwing together the two halves of the plastic clamp on the hose at the position of the barb

Clamp the power cord alligator clips (red to positive and black to negative) to the terminals of an appropriate voltage battery.

  • Note: Failure to use proper size fuse in power cord fuse holder may cause motor damage and void warranty

If using the 1/4" dipstick probe, insert it into the dipstick tube until it hits the bottom of the pan. If it is not obvious when the probe hits the bottom of the pan, it may be helpful to measure the distance from the top of the dipstick tube to the bottom of the pan and mark this length on the probe with a piece of tape. Once the probe has hit the bottom of the pan, pull it back up about 1/8" - 1/4" and hold the probe in that position or secure it with some tape during the oil removal process.

The pump is reversible so it can pump oil in either direction. The switch (at rear of motor) has two "on" positions when it is moved to either side of center with the center position being the "off" position. To remove oil from the engine, move the switch in the direction of required flow. If using the 1/4" probe, watch for oil flowing through it. If oil does not appear in about 10 seconds, check the probe for possible sediment blockage and remove if present.

The motor will overspeed when the oil has been pumped out of the engine. Switch off the pump immediately to avoid impeller damage. Do not leave the pump unattended while pumping oil from the engine. Normal 6 quart pump-out takes less than 3 minutes.

After all the oil has been removed from the engine, disconnect the alligator clips from the battery and carefully remove the dipstick probe from the dipstick tube.
