How to change my oil

Hi Katie,
Run the engine for a few minutes to warm up the oil. Switch off engine Remove the oil filler cap which is on the top of the rocker box. Then. Unscrew and remove the oil drain plug which will be located on the underside of the sump. The plug is usually made of brass and measures about one inch across. NOTE a) the oil could be hot!, b) make sure that you have a bowl underneath the sump to catch the oil in.
Once the oil has drained out you should remove the old oil filter andreplace it with a fresh one.
Finally, replace the oil drain plug BEFORE refilling with fresh oil.

Hi there
Well there is a few ways to remove a rounded sump plug and the best way will be to either drill a center hole [small] then let it drain out the oil, then drill out with a bigger one and use a easy out to un do it [ but when its out put some of the old oil back in to wash out any swarf ] replace new plug with new gasket washer but dont over tighten when replacing .
THE other way is to tap it with a screwdriver and hammer but only lightly and on the plug only. and do it after a run so the oil and sump plug are hot.

How do I remove the engine oil drain cap?

The engine oil drain plug is located directly underneath the engine on the sump. You will need a 15mm wrench or socket to remove it. I hope this helps.

The standard drain plug is on the rear of the sump on the bottom edge slightly right of centre the bolt is a 17mm hex socket type, you have to remove the under shield first to see it,It is possible someone has changed the original bolt for a bigger one as they are prone for tearing the threads out of the aluminium sump ,

Honda accord 1991 oil change

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.
