    The sump has a mesh screen that needs to be replaced. I disagree with the oil extraction method. The drain plugs have magnets on the end, they should be wiped clean and inspected for unusual amount of metal debris. As for the brass plugs they are plumbing plugs not a fasteners, need more clarification on the plugs.

Spider has a dry sump for its oil system, so you only check your oil when the engine is warm. Never Cold!
You will need to remove two drain plugs. One 12mm drain plug is located above/behind an underbody panel at the front of the engine just below the seats/ECU's on the bottom of the car. You will need a new copper crush ring for the re-assembly. The other drain plug is under the dry sump (requires a 22mm or 24 mm socket for this bolt) at the very back right side of the car beneath your oil fill reservoir (large black box with silver/chrome oil cap on top). The drain plugs, copper crush rings, and oil filter are all included in this bargain-priced oil change kit.
After those two drain plugs are opened, you will then want to disconnect/drain/reconnect the lower hose going to the oil cooler on the right side of your 348. Without this optional step, up to 1/2 quart of old oil may not be drained.
You will want to lift up the black airbox (four 10mm nuts) to more easily reach your old oil filter for replacement.
Write the date of your oil change, your mileage, and your oil type onto your new filter. Install your new filter, re-install your drain plugs (using new copper crush rings), reconnect your oil cooler hose if you disconnected it in the optional step, add fewer than 11 quarts of your new oil. Re-install your airbox. Start your engine and then check your oil level. Examine underneath for any leaks. Check your exhaust for any white or gray smoke (typically due to too much oil). Adjust your oil level as required.

One common motor oil-change mistake is to attempt to remove the oil pump pressure access bolt, thinking that's an oil drain. Plug "A" above is for access to the oil pump pressure adjustment bolt. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT mess with the oil pump pressure bolt. It has nothing to do with a proper oil change. You can remove the plug without doing any harm to the pressure adjustment bolt, but DO NOT FOOL with the adjustment bolt inside. It's set at the factory, so leave it be. I had to replace that plug on my 348 when I first got it. The morons that owned it before me had totally mangled the plug. The plug is made out of brass, and is cupped on the inside so that the adjustment bolt can fit inside it once the plug is screwed in.

    Sorry, I failed to be more specific; You will only ned to remove the brass inverted hex drain plug and the ones for the mesh screen. The stuff I use is called "High Tack" and will seal and hold in place any component you need. The kit this place has will save a lot of time and as a kit should save you money.

The correct way is to **** the oil out with a pump like in the garage and not take the sump plug out ,these additional plugs you refer to are bolts holding the baffle plates in place insde the sump ..If you dont know what your doing then i respectfully suggest leave well alone and take to a garage ,even a experianced mechanic can get perplexed here but at the end of the day its only a car with a fancy name ,try working on a foden truck or a case catapillar now these are real mechanics nightmares

Where is the oil drain plug on my 2003 buick lesabre?


Should be directly below the engine at the oil drain pan. It should be a larger drain bolt that screws into the oil drain pan.

The transmission pan may be next to it but won't have a drain plug. The transmission fluid pan has several small bolts that hold it on and the whole pan has to be dropped to change that fluid.

How do you change the oil on a 2006 chevy colorado


This is for the 5 cylinder 3.5 liter engine in the Colorado

1. The drain plug is in the middle of the oil pan on the drivers side.
Use a 15 mm socket or box end wrench to remove the plug. Drain
oil.
2. The oil filter is at the bottom front corner of the engine on the passenger side. Remove the filter. Try not to tip the filter when you
remove it so you don't get oil on other parts of the truck.
3. Rub a small of oil on the gasket of the new filter. Spin on the new filter, 3/4 to 1 turn past when the gasket starts to seat. Hand tighten
only.
4. Reinstall the drain plug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN OR YOU COULD
STRIP THE THREADS.
5. Add 6 quarts of oil to the oil filler tube located on top of the engine
in the front and middle of the engine compartment. It shows the location
in the owners manual. Install the filler cap.
6. Start the engine and let it run a few minutes to fill the filter with oil.
Turn off the engine and wait a few minutes for the oil to drain down to
the bottom of the engine. Remove the dip stick and check oil level.
Checking oil level is in the owners manual.

Not sure i am locating the oil drain plug or the auto trans drain plug on my 2006 chevy silverado 1500. i am almost certain it is the oil drain plug but want to make absolute certain before i drain it....


Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965

Which plug drains the oil


It's on the bottom of the engine. You'll see the oil pan (smooth, rounded edges) and the drain plug on one of the bottom edges. Problem is, you need to remove several T20 torx fasteners and the car's belly pan to access the oil drain bolt (should be 19mm wrench) on the Jetta.

Hi, I have a problem, my friend is doing a oil change onmy 2006 eddie bouer explorer he just call me to ask me if I know where the transmission fluid goes, I have no idea he found the oil change cap but,...


there is no oil fill tube. The correct procedure is to fill the pan through the drain plug. Remove the small inner plug, with the vehicle running fill the pan until ther is a small steady stream coming out of the drain plug.
