I just wanted to make 2 quick comments on the Pela suction pump. When I read about it these forums, I thought it was the greatest thing since the TDI. I used it for the first time last weekend, (NOT on my TDI, but on my wifes Camry), and learned some valuble lessons. First ALL dip-stick tubes are NOT created equal. Toyota has a sharp object in thiers that will slice up the suction tube making it useless. So if you buy one and there is ANY resistance going into the tube, STOP. Now, this is NOT a problem with the TDI, the tube is clear and straight and will not harm the Pela. OK, so now I have this useless tube and I haven't done my Jetta yet, so I e-mailed Pela and they appologized, told me about the Toyotas AND GMs having problems and sent me a new tube via Fed-EX. Thats what I call great customer service! My hats off to this site for all the great info I've gotten.
