    DIY Fluid Pump made with Peanut Butter Jar

    Another use for a big peanut butter jar besides bolt/screw storage. Pull the juice right out of a power steering pump or any part of a car with fluids.

    Simple but useful. Hate it when fluid or lubricant sprays all over the place.

    Spill proof. Neat idea. Time to throw away my cut up plastic bottles and drums.

    i copied this yesterday to pump some oil into a 350 chevy cylinders. the intake manifold gaskets are crap from 96 til 04. gasket had let loose and filled engine with antifreeze. i needed to get some oil in there to stop any rust until i can assemble unit.oil is tough to push so i was using 40 psi and applying short bursts' and it siphoned the oil in sections until it filled the line(had a 3' piece of 1/4" tubing attached) and filled the cylinders little by little. the owner was watching the process and said"damn you can think up anything". thank this forum and the contributor to make me seem as a genius!
