I'm not sure which drain plug you mean. The radiator drain plug is at the bottom corner of the radiator on the driver side. The oil drain plug is on the center of the back of the oil pan. There is no transmission drain plug.
crack in oil pan, drain plug in oil pan, filter loose.......start there and wash the car under as best as you can, then check and see if it still leaks, if its clean under the car you may be able to better locate the source
the oil will NOT drain out of the filter mounting but will drain out of the plug on the oilpan(sump).located under the engine,at the bottom of the oil pan.use a new washer when replacing it,and only use a ring spanner(wrench)to remove it.you may have to remove the splash guard to get to the underside of the engine.(if fitted to your car)
should be a 14mm drain plug on the oil pan. you remove that until no more oil comes out. then put drain plug back in. it should be the only 14mm bolt on the bottom of the pan. then you will have a oil filter below the exhaust manifolds than needs to unscrew. replace with a new one. then fill your engine with 1 gallon or 4 quarts of oil.(same thing) thats all you should need.
i dont know but if you learngin how to work on cars thats a nice car to learn on. it pays off to repair your own car in the long run. you save so much money. :) GOOD LUCK!
take out the oil drain plug and let the oil drain into a reservoir of some kind to be later disposed of properly. remove oil filter. once oil is drained, replace drain plug. install new oil filter. be sure to put some oil on the filters rubber gasket. when filter touches, give it another 3/4 to a full turn. fill engine with oil.
For your car the Oil filter should be on the front left side of the engine as you look at it. You will more then likely have to remove a small body panel to access it. The drain plug should be located on the left side of the oil pan as well.
The Filter your car requires is a Wix #51348 Oil Capacity is 4.5 qts with Filter Change, double check your owner's manual or service manual to make sure. So purchase 6 qts of you have some on hand when you check it and find it's a bit low. General Procedures.
Gather necessary tools and materials.
If you plan to change your oil regularly, consider investing in jack stands, a socket set (adapter to go from 3/8 to1/2 inch for strap wrench), a strap wrench, oil drain pan, leather gloves, funnel and a magnetic retrieval tool (to retrieve the plug encase you drop it in the hot oil).
Run the car's engine for 10 minutes before you drain the oil. Warm oil drains faster than cold oil.
Park the car on a level surface, engage the parking brake and turn off the engine.
If your car has a low clearance, raise it by driving it onto a ramp or by jacking it up and supporting it securely.
Open the hood and place the new oil and funnel on top of the engine to ensure that you won't forget to add oil afterwards.
(an expensive mistake that many do-it-yourselfers make!).
