How do you change oil on a 2001 chevy impala

I just want to know how to change oil on a 2001 chevy impala. I wanna know where the oil drain plug is, and the filter so I can do it myself. I've looked all over the internet and could find any pictures, and the information I find only deals with the sensor being reset. Can anyone help me please?

The sump bung is usually mounted at the lowest point on the engine, on the sump, generally on the bottom os or one of the sides, the best way to see where your oil filter is, is to buy a new one then look under the vehicle.

Chevy impala problems

have a coolant system pressure test done to check for the leak. Check directly under the water pump as there is a drain hole there for when the pump seal fails. The brown stuff may be rust from an engine on the point of overheating.

2001 chevy blazer, no plug on rear axle to check fluid level.

A Chevy rear end or differential is filled through a plug. There is no provision for draining it, however, other than removing the rear cover. If it requires differential oil and the rear cover had not been removed for service, there is obviously a leak in a seal. At the same time, the fluid does not get contaminated and should not need to be changed under normal circumstances.

How to change spark plugs in a 2001 chevy impala 3.8 l v six

The main problem with the 3.8L plugs are the back 2 plugs on the passenger side.
It can be done without moving the engine, but extremely difficult.

The best thing to do is tilt the motor a little. It's easier than it sounds. Most people use a tiedown strap to roll the engine forward, after you remove the top motor mounts (just behind the radiator).

I prefer to use a floor jack and a piece of wood under the oil pan. Remove the upper motor mounts and jack the engine up a little to roll it forward towards the radiator. The rear plugs should be accessible.

Oil clogged won't drain

The oil is probably old and just sludged up and/or baked a little. Pull the oil drain plug. If it doesn't drain, stick a screwdriver in the drain hole to pierce the clog, it'll start draining after that.

Make sure to change you oil as often as manufacturer recommends.

If the vehicle has been sitting for awhile and/or it's been a long time since the last oil change, then this will happen in some vehicles.

As far a loosening deposits, there are arguements that synthetic oils help clean the engine. My personal recommendation would be to increase the frequency of your oil changes. That'll work best and help your car in the long run.

I think for the initial oil change, you should use very cheap oil, and drain it after 500 miles or so and see how it looks. Then put the good stuff in.

You can also send your oil off for analysis if you really wanna get down to it. Depending on where you live, there may be a lab near you. It'll break down how your oil looks as far as contaminiation, mineral deposits, etc.
