Black plastic liner is falling off from under the car in front

This part is hanging low and it drags when I am driving. Can I just have it removed or will it damage anything underneath?

    Also, where can I buy a replacement? Thank you!

I am trying to change the oil. where is the oil pan located on the undercarriage?

The oil pan on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora holds all of the oil for the engine and also protects the oil sump pump. The pan hangs low to the ground, making it prone to damage from rock.
Set the jack underneath the front crossmember of the car.
Set the jack underneath the transmission and lift it up until it just contacts the pan.Unbolt the oil pan from the bottom of the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet, extension and sockets. Lower the pan off of the engine and away from the car.You must first remove the transmision, then the exhaust crossover pipe, then the oil pan. ------------

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Tailpipe is hanging very low

Hi. Under or near the tailpipe, there are rubber and sometimes steel hangers that are placed onto the sides of the pipe structure. These move with the assembly to provide little flexibility during travel. These hangers also are there to keep the pipe/muffler assembly from dragging or hanging to low. When the hanger assembly becomes unstable or damaged, it will allow the tail pipe assembly to hang low or sometimes drag the ground when you hit a bump. The necessary actions are to raise the vehicle high so that you can inspect the exhaust tail pipe assembly for broken hangers or steel bracing devices. replace any rubber hangers that may be snapped or missing form their respective locations. If you are uncomfortable with raising the vehicle, i would take the unit to a local muffler/exhaust shop for the inspection.

Driving down road and front wheel cam off. all lugs sheared off. quite a rush. it had been making a little noise just before. had not removed wheel latly. what do i need to do. new rotor and spindle? is...

The front wheel bearing is an assy. That has the new studs on it. You probably want to change the rotor while it is off and the pads. Also have a good look at you drive axle, if the boots are broken odds are its bad
What caused the wheel to come off? Did it lock up? Have a look at the brake caliper and make sure it isnt hanging up. Lee

Usually the whole front engine cratle is removed from the under side of these cars. Once all the electrical is disconnected, you unbolt the struts, unbolt the top motor mount anything that might hang up as your lowering the engine out from underneath the body. There are a few bolts holding cradle underneath the engine that need removed. Make sure all your brake lines are disconnected. so forth and so on. Then its just a matter of lifting the body high enough for the whole engine cradle to roll out from under it.

Metal piece hanging in middle of undercarriage just behind wheels

It's likely the heat shield for the catalytic converter. There's really no repair for it. Mechanics won't usually spot weld it and they can't remove it. Apart from a little rattle now and then, there's really nothing to worry about.

Of course, check the fluid first. Running, pull the stick out, wipe it and put it in, pull out and read it. If fluid smells burned, it probably is. (indicating an internal problem) If low, add till full and try to move vehicle. Check for evidence of leaks underneath & repair before driving. Even if it does move, it's likely that something has been damaged somewhat from driving with low fluid... At the least, have the fluid changed, to prevent burned fluid from causing more damage.
