Default oil suction pump

I have a 2008 Chrysler 300C. The oil drain plug has seized. Instead of spending the $$$$ to have a new oil pan put on, was thinking of using one of those oil suction pumps... the kind where you stick a tube down the dipstick tube and draw the oil out from there.

Does anyone know of a manufacture for one that fits a Chrysler?

Thanks

Those things are very regularly used in boats to change the oil since you can't get under the engine. Look for them at boating stores and boating equipment websites.

Also, there are sockets you can buy that are made to get a grip on nuts that have been rounded off. You might get lucky and get that bugger off yet. Replacement drain plugs are easy to come by.

Thanks for the reply and the boating store suggestions.

Looks like the inside diameter of the dip stick tube is a little more than 1/4". Have you heard of any issues with getting tubes down to the oil pan? Any issues with pushing the tube through the turns of the dip stick tube?

Yeah, my goal is to get the plug removed; I just bought a new one today. Figured I would use a pump till I can get the plug out.
