Location of oil drain plug on 2003 montero sport


You will have to get under the vehicle and find the oil pan directly under the engine. On the oil pan you will locate the bolt to drain the oil pan. They usually are at the lowest point on the oil pan so that all the oil is drained from the pan when removed.

Where is the drain plug on a 2003 chevy blazer


The oil drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan.
The radiator drain is on the bottom passangers side of the radiator.
The transmission drain plug is in the trans oil pan , or you may have to drain by releasing the tension on the pan bolts... in which case you will likely need to replace the transmission pan gasket to reseal it.

My 2003 Kia Spectra and its linking oil like crazy and the check engine light is still on after and oil change. Could I have a cracked o oil pan or is it something more?


First you should check the oil plug and filter to make sure the plug was tightend on tight and the oil filter to make sure that is fit tight. If either one of these is not tight it will make the car leak like crazy. If you had a crack oil pan the mechanic should have told you that when you had the oil changed.

Crack in oil pan


if the oil pan is aluminum , replace it. Have had one welded before with poor results. Don't buy a new one cause they are expensive. Find one at an autowrecker. Make sure you have a new gasket before you start , and seeing as you will have to drain the oil, have a new oil filter and oil handy too. I always smear a bit of gasket sealant all over the new gasket , it makes a better seal , and helps hold the gasket in place so you can line up the bolt holes.
