    Is it difficult to get a suction hose down into the crankcase of an Fx140 to change oil? Approximately how much oil should I get out?

    Thanks Ken

    I have only done it once. But it was not difficult. The key to making it easy is using a vacuum canister to remove the oil. The hand pumps or electric pumps are just a pain to use - and they are messy.

    I can't remember the oil out quantity. The owners manual should tell you. Anyway, the important things are:
    Run the engine for a few minutes first to scavenge the oil.
    Suck out all that you can.
    Spin off the old filter - spin on the new.
    Refill with a little less oil than you removed. Run engine again. Top off oil as necessary - DO NOT overfill.
