You probably won't need a diagram. If you know where the oil pan is. Under the car. There is the oil pan and it has a plug. Put an oil change container under it and remove the plug with a wrench. Let the oil drain out. Replace the plug.You should replace the oil filter too with each oil change. Then after replacing the plug and installing a new oil filter. Put in 4 quarts of oil into the engine by removing the oil cap on top of the valve covers. And your done. check the oil after running the car a while to see if it does not need more oil. Do NOT OVERFILL!! That can ruin the gaskets and an oil leak can occur. I hope this helps you. You can go to autozone .com if you need more info. Just click on the DIY and repair guide.

Reset oil change light on 2004 Oldsmobile Alero or Bravada w/o (DIC) Driver...


I see alot of people cant figure out how to reset there oil change light on a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero/ Bravade w/o (DIC) driver information center. To do this follow the steps below.
Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds. The reset is complete when you hear the chimes and the “CHANGE OIL” light goes out. If the light stays on and no chime is heard, you will need to repeat the reset procedure. Turn the key to OFF. If the “CHANGE ENGINE OIL” message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
and its as easy as that and now you can change your oil on your own and not need a dealership to reset it for you.

Oil leaking from bottom of engine from my 1999 oldsmobile alero


I'd start with replacing the Drain plug Gasket. Most conviniontly done with an oil change but you can do it without changing the oil also (Helps to have 2 people)
Also It could be leaking anywhere, (Gravity pulls it down to the bottom of the engine) Thats where I would start. They normally are around 50 cents (give or take) at your local parts place.
