Mark - Thank you for explaining. How often do you replace the drain pickup hose? or remove the chafe guard to check the drain pickup hose ?Vasu,
The outer garden hose is just a chafe guard for the inner hose. I did the same thing when I installed my drain pickup hose. If you chafe a hole in the drain hose you could lose all your oil, possibly do some engine damage if not noticed and have a mess to clean up.
