It'll be easier if you jack up the front of the car, but there are only 2 options for Chevy drain pans (depending on the engine you have). It is either smack bang in the middle of the engine block at the center (will be a small bolt head seemingly sticking out of nowhere on the drain pan wall, the bolt head will be facing the back of the car).

Or the other arrangement will have the bolt head near the front passenger wheel in line with the axel (it is pointing out towards the side of the car, horizontally). Look for an aluminum oil pan with the bolt head sticking through it.

My 2002 chevy malibu is leaking oil what could it be ?


If oil is leaking -could be power steering,engine, transmission,
I can honestly name over 20 possibilities, but before we get into those possibilities I would recommend taking your car to your local repair shop for a complete inspection regarding the oil leak. Most shops may give you a free estimate or not exceed charging more than $100.00
good luck and top up which ever oil is leaking to prevent future problems..

Is it more expensive to take my 2002 chevy malibu to a dealer for servicing


yes it is, because they charge so much labor on top of the cost for parts. if you can do it, change the plugs, wires, air filter, gas filter etc, this way you only pay for parts.

What are the step by step instructions to change my oil in my 2008 Chevy Malibu LTZ?


Find the oil drain plug, remove, drain the oil into a pan, reinstall the drain plug a tighten, locate the oil filter and remove, check mounting surface to make sure the old gasket didn't stick. Coat the new filter gasket with oil and install hand tight. Refill the oil, make sure that you do not overfill. Start enigne for about a minute, shut off and double check the level, and that the filter and drain plug do not leak.
Some engines can be difficult, to identify the location of the drain plug and filter. There are thousands of configurations out there, If you are not familiar or can not locate the plug and filter, take the vehicle to a shop for service.

2002 Chevy Malibu - Oil in Coolant Tank


Sounds like your head gasket has a leak. I would also check your dip stick. If there is coolant mixed with the oil also. Then it is your head gasket.
