IF you have a hand pump, or electric oil extractor, and a small enough tube, you can drain the oil, up through the oil dip stick tube. Then change the filter from above also. I did it once and am wondering if anyone else is doing this? Pacifica, gas, 2018.

I owned an automotive Service Center for 32 years and imported oil Evacuation from Germany in 1985. We vacuumed out all our oil changes 1.5 million times with many vehicles with over 200k on them . You must use the correct equipment and techniques to actually get more oil out then just draining. Any idiot can strip a drain plug
