Drain plug clogged


If you mean the drain plug for the motor crankcase, you might stick a screwdriver or wire or something like that in and our of the hole until the motor oil runs out.
If the transmission drain plug, same answer.
If the radiatror drain plug, try taking the radiator cap off and blow air into the drain with an air hose gently to open it. (NOT high pressure so you don't damage the radiator).
Be Blessed.

I'm a woman trying to teach myself how to maintain my own car. I have a 2009 Dodge Journey 3.5 v6. I wanted to know basic instructions on how to change the oil myself? any help pls?


You could try some YouTube videos on similar models.
Its a messy job, and for most people easier to pay someone to do.
You have to remove the drain plug from the oil pan to drain the oil into a pan, then dispose of it safely, and change the filter, then refill the oil pan with new oil.

Weird! I have put in too much oil in to my 2001 Jetta TDI. I take off the plug and drain it, but it's still away above the full mark, and now, no oil comes out of the pan! Never seen anything like it....


are you sure your checking the motor oil level with the motor oil dipstick and not the trans dipstick,or your removing the wrong drain plug and not draining the motor oil but another oil like transmission.

How to change the oil on a 2005 Kia Sedona


The oil filter is towards the front of the car, underneath on the passenger side, at the corner of the engine cradle. Loosen the drain plug and drain the oil. Make sure the old oil filter gasket came off with the oil filter. Reinstall the new oil filter. Reinstall the drain plug and fill with 5 quarts of 10w/30 motor oil.

How do i change the oil?


jack the car and support it on jackstands. put a can or oil catcher under the oil drain plug then loosen but do not remove the plug. slowly start to remove the plug letting oil drain out . when all the oil is drained remove the filter using a filter wrench available at most auto stores for under $10. hand tighten the new filter acoring to the instructions on the filter then replace the drain plug. Now add up to the specified litres of oil and check under the car/truck for leaks around the drainplug and filter. now you are done

How do you drain the oil if you put the wrong oil in?


First off, When you say the wrong oil in, do you mean a quart of the wrong weight of oil such as 5w30 and the vehicle calls for 10W30? or do you mean you used synthetic oil mixed in conventional oil. If you added one can or less of the wrong weight oil, then I probably wouldn't worry about it until your next oil change. If you added synthetic oil into conventional oil then do the following.

You need to get under the car and look for the oil pan which should be directly below your motor. Put a large container that would hold at least 8 quarts of oil under the oil pan and use a wrench and remove the drain plug allowing all of the oil to drain into the pan. Once all drained, you might as well change the oil filter and add fresh oil to your vehicle. If you have never done it before, it is fairly simple in the regal but buy the oil filter so you know what your looking for. I believe the filter is on the front of your motor. Make sure you put a ring of oil on the seal of the new filter before installing and then spin it clockwise to put it on. Lastly re-insert the drain plug and fill the motor with 4 quarts of oil(expecting to add total of 5 quarts). Start the car for about 30 seconds and shut it off and check the oil level. if low add the 5th quart. Check under the car for any oil leaks. Not a hard fix. Good luck.

I want to tune-up, myself , where do I get information? Advice?


right here! for a tune up all you got to do is change your oil, spark plugs, plug wires, air filter. not very hard to do! to change oil, you got to drain all the oil out with a socket or wrench. make sure its not the transmission you drain. but drain oil, then take filter off, take new filter rub oil around the top on the rubber sealing. put on car. put about 5 quarts of oil in. get spark plug socket, change plugs. when you change plug wires, make sure to do it ONE AT A TIME!!! or else you will wire it up wrong and have tons and tons of problems. then air filter is pretty easy, take it out and clean it,,put back in and there you go, tuned up!
