The plug is on the underside of the engine oil pan, more to the back of the pan....if you've never changed the oil before..the plug looks like a nut....makw sure you run the car a little before draining the oil.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: oil change

You most likely have to take a skid plate or cover off the underside of the truck to get to the drain plug.

Oil dumb on plug number one,what seems to be the problem(datsun L18)

Hi there
If you have oil on Number 1 plug and not on the others then you have a bad plug/bad HTlead/cracked distributor cap or badly worn piston rings,burnt out valve or valve seal in number 1 cylinder.
So put in new plug and try it if engine runs rough then check out all the above.

Most vehicles do not have an oil drain plug for the have to drop the pan to change the oil. Make sure you install a new gasket when you put it back on.

Oil Change proceedure. Where is the oil pan drain

The drain plug will be at the lowest part of the oil pan. I would recommend you take it to a shop, if you cant seem to find it. If its not right, you can damage the engine, and thats a pretty big price for trying to save a few bucks.

How do i change the transmission fluid out of my 2000 gmc jimmy myself is there a drain plug ?? if so were at ?

There are two ways to changing the transmission oil. If your going to change the transmission oil and filter, your going to have to drop the transmission oil pan to get to the filter and the oil will drain from there, but keep in mind that it will get messy. The other way to replace the transmission oil if that is all your going to do is to get a large bucket and a small hose the size of the transmission oil line. You can disconnect the transmission oil line from the radiator on the passenger side and connect the hose to the line and the other end to the bucket. Start the truck and try to do this with two people, one to hold the hose and one to start the turn off the engine when the transmission is almost out of fluid. DO NOT RUN THE TRANSMISSION DRY, so make sure the other person understands you when you tell them to shut off the engine. This will ensure that you replace most of the fluid in the transmission, once most of the oil fluid has been drained from the transmission, just reconnect the oil line and refill the transmission fluid through the oil dip stick. Good luck and hope this helps.

Sorry if these questions might seem dumb........but with out being there........
Do you have actual oil pressure?
Was the correct filter used?
Is there oil in the engine?
Is it the oil pressure indicator or possibly the change oil indicator that is on?

Is the engine running if it has oil pressure?
If the engine is running after the oil might have oil pressure even though the light inside is on.........because the fuel pump usually needs to see oil pressure to continue to pump fuel.
