I can only get about 2.5, maybe 3 liters or quarts out of the engine.
The suction tube does not seem to go to the bottom of the oil pan.

Anything I can do to fix this?
Other than going under the car.

dipstick tube does not go to the bottom of the pan. If it did, reading oil level would be problematical. Use a 6 mm or so plastic tube attached to your vacuum device running down inside the tube to go to the bottom of the plan if you insist on vacuuming oil out this way....good luck

Thanks, the 6mm tube does not go to the bottom for me. I can measure the tube. I think it is 5-6mm.

This happened to me recently. It would be nice to know if someone has successfully removed more than 5 quarts at the bare minimum.
