umm if you have to ask you probably shouldn't try it yourself. But If you have everything needed to change your oil and are willing and able then here's what you do.... First: you will need and oil pan, funnel, wrench that fits your oil plug, new oil filter and possibly something to help remove your old oil filter, car jack stands/jack to lift your car. Second: lift your car up enough to get under it using the jack, place oil pan under car's oil plug. Next: remove oil plug let oil drain. Next: remove oil filter Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug. Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.
Hi J, Clean the whole area around the drain plug and oil pan. Drain the fluid from the drain plug at the lowest point of the gearbox oil pan. When drained into the required receptacle, remove all bolts around the oil pan and drop it. The oil filter is located inside and held in place by fixing bolts. Remove those and replace the filter. This job requires the utmost cleanliness, and no contamination should be allowed to get inside the gearbox. Refit oil pan using a new gasket and refill gearbox to required level. Always check the gearbox level with the engine running, the selector in neutral and the park brake fully engaged. Regards John
The oil pan drain plug should require a 14mm hex head wrench to remove. The transmission pan requires a 10mm allen head socket, or wrench to remove. Are you sure you're trying to remove the correct drain? The oil drain should be on the passenger side and on the rear corner of the pan.
You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.
You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.
Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill
Changing oil is really easy and i do not know if you have done this before so i will walk you threw compleatly. step1 jack the vehicle up and support it with jackstands before you get underit.
Step 2. Get a good oil Drain pan
3. remove the plug on the bottom of the oil pan and drain the oil in to the drain Pan caution make sure engine is not hot as the oil will burn you severaly.
4. locat your oil filter and remove and alow do drain in drain pan
5 grab the new filter and put a light coat of oil on to the gasket and screw on to your engine as tight as you can by hand now grab the oil filter wrench and turn only 1/4 of a turn tighter.
6. install drain plug back into engine oil pan and tighten down with wrench.
7 fill engine with proper oil viscosity example 5w-30 and the proper amount both can be found in owners manual.
8. start engine and look for leaks if no leaks are presant take car of of jack stands and enjoy you Well done job

This is a really messy job, but here is what u must do, jack the truck off the ground and secure with safety stands, there is a sheet metal pan on the bottom of the transmission, remove it, fluid will go everywhere, do u have a large drain pan? measure the fluid drainedout and put the same amount back in, the run the engine until the trans fluid is hot at least 180 deg Fahrenheit, recheck the trans fluid level and top off, donot overfill!! u can destroy the trans if u do.
You are referring to the drain bolt on the oil pan? You can use a crescent wrench. I have a 92 and I can never remember what size the drain bolt is, so I always go under with my trusty adjustable crescent wrench. Let me know if u need more info.
