That is the tranny oil. Is this a manual or automatic?

SOURCE: Drain the radiator?
if you can see the bottom of your radiator from the top of your car there should be a wing nut on the bottom in one of the corners loosen that and your antifreeze will drain if you dont see it there then the skidplate is covering it up

I have owned a 1999 intrepid for 9 years. And have changed the oil many times in the 170,000 miles I've owned it. This car comes mostly with a 2.7 liter motor. It does some times have a 3.5 liter. As you open the hood,there is a sticker that tells you what motor it has. If you have the 2.7, between the two front wheels you have a cast aluminum oil "pan" You will see a oil filter sitting vertical, towards the passenger side.The bottom of the filter is almost flush with the bottom of the oil pan. Just to the side of the filter,towards the driver side, is a hex head oil plug. It will take a 11/16" wrench to remove it.Hope this helps lbreen

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!

For the 1.6l engines:
Looking at the engine from the front end (e.g. from the right fender), the drain plug is on the left below cylinder #1.
From beneath the car, looking towards the front of the vehicle, you'll find it on the right had end of the engine block, at the back (nearest the passenger compartment. (see image below)
You'll need a 17mm wrench or socket.
The Oil filter is above it and towards the center of the block.

Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965
