The ENGINE drain plug should be there, but IF you dont know what you are doing, PLEASE dont guess. I had a guy do his own oil change, he drained the trans, and then put 5 quarts in the engine, needless to say, the transmission had NO OIL and the engine had 10 quarts, it ran for 10 miles until the trans siezed. only cost him $3500.00

I'd like to do an oil change on my trailblazer 04' but i cant find the drain plug,,,,where is it? Is there a guard i have to remove?


Hello,

The drain plug of the chevrolet 2004 trial blazer is located under the engine skid plate it is with the oil filter. And there is a guard to be removed. There is a trap door before it.

The skid plate door is located by the drivers side door, directly midway underneath the vehicle. You will need a flat/phillips hear screwdriver to open the trap door. Do not worry, the screws are 'loss-proff' and will not fall off the trap door plate. Once this has been removed, the oil drain plug and oil filter are now visible and accessible.

Oil change should not take you more that 15/20 minutes.

Hope this helped.
Take care and good luck

The starter comes out from the passengerside wheel well.Disconnect battery, then jack up vehicle and put a jack stand under the car on the frame. Remove the cover up in the wheel well.

If vehicle is an automatic remove kickdown cable bracket. Upper starter bolt can the be removed and the starter will come out.

Location of oil filter


The 2007 Tundra 5.7l engine doesn't have a spin on filter - it uses a replaceable paper cartridge within a permanent housing. Located under the skid plate on the front-left portion of the engine, the oil filter unit has two coolant hoses, a black plastic screw-in housing, and a large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it. The cartridge-type oil filter is in the housing.

If equipped with a skid plate, access is accomplished by removing the 5 skid plate bolts, allowing the plate to swing down on integrated hangars (with the front plastic bumper skirt still attached). To completely remove the skid plate, three small screws holding it to the front plastic bumper skirt must also be removed.

Toyotafilter kits contain a new filter cartridge, a plastic drain plug, and two O-rings. The drain plug is used to drain residual oil from the filter unit prior to removing the plastic screw-in housing. After removing the large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it, the plug simply snaps into the bottom of the plastic housing. The smaller of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw.

Once drained, the plastic screw-in filter housing is removed using a filter wrench (Toyota special service tool). The larger of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw-in housing. VERY CLOSE ATTENTION must be paid in placing the new O-ring - failure to properly seat the new O-ring could result in a massive oil leak! The filter itself is currently only available from Toyota.

Can't locate oil filter(2006 ) trail balzer


The oil drain plug and oil filter are under the engine skid plate. You need to remove the trap door to see. The skid plate door is located by the drivers side door, directly midway underneath the vehicle. You will need a flat or Phillips-hear srewdriver to open the trap door. Don't worry, the screws are 'loss-proof' and will not fall off the trap door plate. Once this has been removed, the oil drain plug and oil filter are now visible and accessable (how smart is that!) Typical oil change and oil filter replacement time = 15-20 mins. for a familiar shadetree. p.s. The Inline 6 (24 valve - 4.2L) takes 7 quarts of oil. Good luck!
