Under the engine there is a bolt which can be loosed by using a spanner 20. Loose that bolt and the oil drains out. Although it is most likely you will have to take the sump out first.

Clattering. is it valves or rockers and how do i eliminate it? does it mainly when i first start it. 75k miles on the car. i was told the rockers should be tightened. is this true, and how do i go about...

use an engine flush when changing oil/filter use only 10/40 semi synthetic oil(change every 10k)top end chatter occurs when engine is cold/oil not up to followers,but should stop about 30 secs after starting engine.there ARE NO adjustments AT ALL.if chattering persists,then top end rebuild req.
the person who told you about "rockers"should learn about self adjusting valve followers....

How do I reset the "Oil Change Warning Indication" on colorado

if you have a owners manual read it. try website and search the forums. i think johnny5846 is right if you don't have a DIC (driver info center). i believe you use the DIC(tripodometer). i don't know the sequence off hand, you can also you can change your lock settings and alarm settings, etc. with the DIC.

5/30 is the correct oil to use (for maximum engine efficiency, gas mileage. !0/30 won't 'clog up' your motor, but it will make it more difficult to start in the cold weather. Just think of maple syrup in your fridge, try to pour it, compare to pouring @ room temp, The many oil lubricated engine parts will have difficulty turning, spinning, etc if u had cold thick syrup in the engine. Warm up the syrup, everything moves freely. The 10/30 is just a heavier (thicker if u will) oil, not what u should use in the cold weather. If u have your owners manual, check it out, it will give u the recommended oil weight to use for the temperature of your climate, but I think u will find 5/30 recommended for most situations. Always change your filter when u change the oil, change oil and filter 2x a year or 3k miles whichever comes 1st
