    I'll give her credit for not using a zip gun.
    But, her back is my front.
    Just sayin.

    There is an extraordinary young lady on YouTube that gives a lesson on the F300 oil change. I bet it’s the first one that pops up after search. Edit - maybe not

    There are about 780 ish hours. About 50 hrs since it was last serviced by the Yamaha dealer I bought it from. What else do you recommend I look at? Other than lower unit oil that is a given up here in the cold.

    Thanks guys! I will go ahead and go the drain plug route. I bought it from a local Yamaha dealer whose have used for bigger servicing and repair on other motors I have had for years, I know them reasonably well. They also sold this motor to the original owner and serviced it since new, I can give a call and find out how they did it. But they are a great ship who do not cut corners, I am betting they drained it.

    Drain it....get it all out....new filter....best oil... preventative maintenance is so important and inexpensive compared to the alternative

    I always used to just drain my F250's from the drain plug.

    I use a manual vacuum extractor and it works great. It’s leaving a bit more oil than pulling the covers and draining it, but it still holds the recommended 7 quarts (2017 F300) without overfilling. Once I get most the oil out, I tilt the motor up then back down and pump it a few more times. I put the extractor on an upside down trash can and once going it drains mostly on its own.

    I would drain it. However if that has not be done that way before, 2010 might give some push back.
    Frozen apron boots etc.
    Also on the engine I would look into some other itmes.
    How many hours?
    And what is the P.I.D.?

    started a topic Yamaha oil change

    Yamaha oil change

    So I am getting ready to pull my boat for the winter in a few weeks. This was my first season with a 4 stroke. I have a 2010 f300. When doing an oil change is it worth buying one of the oil extractors, or is draining the oil from the plug better? The extractor sounds slightly easier I just don't know if is worth spending the money on.
Working...
