The oil pan was broken. They are made out of aluminum or cast iron. but i think it's hard aluminum. You are going to have it replace it. Don't drive the car without oil.Anyone can do it . Lift the car and secure it so it won't fall. Then remove that plastic thing you mentioned and remove the bolts around the pan . It has several . Be sure to buy a pan and gasket along with the pan.And replace.

Vw t25 gearbox oil change


You will need a very large allen wrench (like 19mm or so) for the drain and fill plugs.
This is an uncommon size so if you do not want to invest in one just have a shop do it.
If you decide to go ahead, get GL-4 hydraulic oil and a pump. Remove fill plug first (to ensure you can before draining transmission!) on side of transmission, about mid-line.
Then remove drain plug (center bottom toward engine). Have catch pan ready.
Once it has all dripped out, replace drain plug and fill with pump through side plug until it starts to drip back out (car level).
Let it finish dripping out, replace plug and good to go!

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH


You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2010 Ford Fusion SE V6?


The Oil Filter is located in the Front of the engine on a 3.0L.It is between the motor and the radiator. You will need a 7mm socket to remove the plastic cover that says oil filter on it (at least the 2011 has that). You need a 15mm wrench for the oil plug.
I rolled the Fusion up on ramps and removed the oil filter and the oil dripped all down the front of motor and all on the plastic under the motor. Next time I might jack up the back to level the car out more to make less a mess from the oil dripping.

Check the Transmission Oil level and look for oil drip traces where the vehicle normally parks.

You need to inspect your Serpentine Belt. That is the ribbed belt <see diagram below> that is driven by the engine's Main Pulley at the crank (generally, lower part of the engine). The smooth side usually drives the water pump, while the ribbed side drives the alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor. Inspect this belt and look for obvious signs of oil (slick stains) that have dripped onto the belt from another part of the engine. If you have oil stains, then you will need to get the source of the oil leak fixed before replacing the belt because you would otherwise be throwing money away as a new belt would soon experience problems due to the oil leak. If no oil leak, check for obvious wear on the belt by looking for BIG cracks that are penetrating through to the smooth side of the belt, cracks parallel to the smooth side of the belt, or chunks missing from the ribbed side of the belt <see diagram below, though the bottom diagram shows cracks perpendicular to the backing that are normal/acceptable; Parallel cracks soon become chunks missing from the belt>
