Using an oil "Extractor" 2013 Touareg TDI

I read with great interest your article on changing your oil in 2010 Touareg with an extraction pump through the dipstick tube.

My questions are # 1 where can I find an extraction pump

#2 my 2013 does not have a dipstick....would an extraction pump work if inserted through the oil filter?

It seems that as these cars progress the manufacturer makes it harder and harder for the owner to perform any kind of ordinary/routine maintainence.

I use a mity vac but you can honestly use any vacuum pump that empties into a container. There are some vids of me using it on my jetta in jetta FAQ and my youtube channel, works well if oil is warm.

2. It should but it's plugged. You can even retrofit the dipstick but I don't know the right part number. Look in front of engine and you'll see a mysterious tube with the tip plugged.

I have done one oil change extraction on my 09 VW Touareg V6 TDI without any issues, but in reading some posts on touareg forum site, some folks have indicated that Audi says you should not do an oil extraction on the V6 TDI 3.0 engine. There has been speculation that this engine has a baffle plate that prevents an extractor from reaching sump bottom. Anybody have information on a baffle plate in the Touareg V6 TDI 3.0 engine which would obstruct an oil extraction.

I do this on my Q7 TDI, and it is extremely difficult to get the extraction tube all the way to the bottom. My experience is that it can be hit and miss; and with my large tank extraction unit, it's impossible to see how much volume has been extracted.

Is it difficult because the Q7 TDI has a baffle which impedes the extraction tube? My extractor hold 8.3 liters before I have to empty it and I extracted the 8.3 liters without a problem. I put a mark on the extractor tube so I am only inserting the same exact length as the dip stick so I know I am hitting the bottom.

A touareg owner in the below thread talks about having a problem extracting oil from his V6 TDI. The Q7 TDI and Touareg V6 TDI are the same engine, but I have never read anything about a baffle plate on the 3.0 Touareg V6 TDI engine.

I did another extraction oil change on my 2009 Touareg TDI using a Mityvac 7300. I was able to extract slightly less than 8 liters of oil and added 8.3 liters of Mobil 1â„¢ ESP Formula 5W-30 oil. For whatever it is worth, my ELSAWIN VW/Audi software manual specifies you can extract the oil on the VW TDI 3.0 engine, but not to use the extraction method on the Audi Q7 3.0 engine. So although the Audi Q7 TDI and VW Touareg TDI both have the 3.0 engine, there are some differences between them.

There's a drain plug but extraction is the recommended method so they don't have to remove any underbody pans (and loose the fasteners, causing it to fall off the next day), and because this results in a faster service. In a garage, time = money, they want the cars in and out.

The Touareg and the Q7 are supposed to have the same TDI engine.

That being said, my 2010 Q7 TDI had a dipstick, as does the 2015. I just checked.
