    I have one of those that pulls liquids out and reverses to put the liquid back in. I use it mostly on radiators not engine oil. They work well though.

    Believe it or not, I have seen the worn brake pad and rotor thing personally on a car I was working on (with the exception of the caliper piston coming out of the bore) and it was making NO noise.

    I use a claying towel. I don't remember a brand but is a flat towel 8" by 8" or so bought online. They work great and you don't have any folding to do like a clay bar. I use windex as a lubricant.
