Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I was looking for the drain plug for this 2001 GMC Chevy Silverado 1500 V8. I believe it is the plug to the rear of the (what I believe is the oil Pan) however it is not pointed straight down, but pointing to the rear of the vehicle. Just behind that pan/plug area is another pan, which I believe might be the transmission drain plug, and it's pointing down towards the ground. So which is which......?
The pan under the motor is the oil pan. you can see the oil filter to the left of it (driverside). The plug is in the rear of it facing the back of the truck. On my 6.0l V8 the exuast pipe is rite behind it so when you loosen it have the drip pan ready to catch the oil as it will stream out fast at a wierd angle due to its location. The pan behind it is for the transmission.

Loosen the plugs and see what comes out, if its brownish or black its engine oil, if its red pinkish or green yellowish its transmission fluid.
