I can not discern exactly where the drain plug is on my Saturn Vue. The crankcase under the engine is not as immediately recognizable as what I am used to seeing. I think I finally located the oil filter on the lower left side of the engine accessible from under the hood.

if you have access to a car ramp the oil plug is located on edge of the oil pan and while under your car you will see the oil filter it all depends on what kind of oil you want sometimes it boils down to budget but remember you get what you pay for
hi Phil, The drain plug will always be at the lowest point on the bottom of the oil sump. can't send you a picture but I'm sure you can find it. you'll probably need to remove the plastic covers underneeath. Regards JohnJohn
Oil drain plug is its
on the back passenger side of the engine out of sight unless you under
the car itself
It's a cartridge filter that goes into a canister.You'll need a 32mm oil filter canister socket to remove the cover to access
the filter. You can find it at PepBoys for less than $10 by the other oil
Make sure your car is off and cool (cannot have been running for the last hour as the oil will burn)
Owner's manual will say exactly what oil and oil filter to use. Most stores have cross reference sheets as well
You'll need a socket wrench with an adapter for the oil filter and an adapter for the drain plug You could get an oil filter strap as well instead of the adapter.
Remove the filler cap on the top of the engine....
Put a drain tray under the drain pan and remove the drain plug (it will leak oil out as you're loosening it). Do not lose the drain plug as you'll be using it still. Check plug to see if there's any extra metal on it (ie. engine parts are grinding) Let drain and then repeat for oil filter.
Once completely drained, put the plug back in and then poor a bit of oil into the oil filter and then reinstall the filter. Pour the required amount of oil in through the top of the engine and close the cap....
