    It's not by the convenience panel, or the under hood fuse center. Please give me some other locations.

From under the car, it's located on the passenger side of the motor.
It is straight up and down (well close, therre is a slight angle) towards the back of the block.

    I would would not trust it.

    The jacks that come with the car are only designed to help you out in an emergency situation (like a flat tire).

    I would never trust my life to one. That car weighs close to 2 tons, and 65% of it is in the front.

    What you might be able to do, is drive up on a curb, so that both right side tires are on the curb. I don't know how you're built, so I'm not sure if you would have enough room.

    You can pick up a set of ramps, or a floor jack and some jacks stands cheap.

    And the nice thing about an investement like this, is that they are there for the next time you need them.

    In all my years of working on cars, it is a #1 rule, that you never crawl under a car without the proper support, I like being alive, and I like having full use of all my limbs.

    I just did a quick search. Sears has a 2 1/4 ton hydraulic floor jack, and jack stands for $50.00.

    Autozone had something similar for $42.00

    A very worth while investment, and very cheap insurance that is a one time buy, that you can reuse many times.

The "change oil light" came on, on my 1996 buick roadmaster. i changed the oil but now how do i get the "change oil" light to turn off?

Turn key to "ON" position (NOT START). Press gas pedal smoothly and all the way to the floor 5 times. You'll need to do this in about 5 seconds. Light should go out. You may have to do this a few times but that's how it's done...Start car to double check.
Good Luck.

If you don't have the owners manual most of them were you turn on the ignition to run but do not start the car. Now push the gas peddal to the floor 3 times quickly. The light should start to flash then go out. Turn off the ignition and now start it the light should stay out if it comes back on there is most likely a problem in the ECM or wiring.

96 Buick Roadmaster running lean.

That is an oxygen sensor, these sensors send a signal to the computor to adjust the rich/lean fuel mixture.
When a code comes up for them, they generally need replacing.

I need to change my fuel filter on my 1996 buick roadmaster

Well the good news is is that this is a very easy repair that will take only a few minutes. The fuel filter is located under the car beneath the driver side rear door. You don't need any special tools. I beleive that there are two bolts that hold the filter and that the lines are held on by clamps. I would have a small bucket handy as a little gas will spill out when you take the lines off. write back and tell how it goes.
