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

I took off the oil filter to my 95 jeep cherokee straight and it wont drain out.


the oil will NOT drain out of the filter mounting but will drain out of the plug on the oilpan(sump).located under the engine,at the bottom of the oil pan.use a new washer when replacing it,and only use a ring spanner(wrench)to remove it.you may have to remove the splash guard to get to the underside of the engine.(if fitted to your car)

HOW TO CHANGE OIL PAN ON F150


Hi. Here's the procedure on how to change the oil pan.

Things You'll Need:
Drain pan
Crescent wrench
New oil filter
Oil filter wrench
Socket wrench
Socket set
Razor knife
Putty knife
New oil pan
Oil pan gasket
6 qt. of oil
Clean towel

    Draining the Oil
  1. 1 Locate the oil pan directly underneath the engine. The oil pan will be held on to the bottom of the motor by 16 to 18 bolts. The drain plug is at the bottom of the pan.
  2. 2 Loosen the drain plug with a crescent wrench. Allow all the oil to drain in to the pan. Tighten the drain plug when the oil is through draining.
  3. 3 Unscrew the oil filter with an oil filter wrench. Place the oil filter with the waste oil.
  4. 4 Rub new motor oil around the gasket of the new oil filter. Pour 1 qt. of oil in to the filter.
  5. 5 Screw the filter to the filter housing with your hands. Do not wrench-tighten as this will strip the threads and make removal of the filter difficult.
  6. Replacing the Oil Pan
  7. 1 Locate all the bolts holding the oil pan in place. There will be 16 to 18 bolts.
  8. 2 Unscrew all the bolts with a socket wrench. Lower the pan to the ground. If the pan is stubborn, tap it with a rubber mallet to loosen the seal from the gasket.
  9. 3 Scrape clean all the gasket material around the bottom surface of the motor. This will ensure a tight seal with the new oil pan.
  10. 4 Place the new gasket around the new oil pan. Raise the oil pan to the motor and screw in all the bolts. Do not tighten the bolts until all are threaded to the bottom of the motor.
  11. 5 Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench. Ensure that all the bolts are tight.
  12. Adding the New Motor Oil
  13. 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil filler cap on top of the crankcase. Pull the engine oil dipstick from the tube. Wipe the dipstick clean with a fresh towel.
  14. 2 Pour in 5 qt. of oil in to the engine crank case. Insert the dipstick back in to the tube and pull it back out. Check the oil level against the markings on the dipstick. Fill at 1/2 qt. intervals until the dipstick indicates "Full."
  15. 3 Start the truck and allow it to run for five minutes. Allow the truck to sit for an additional five minutes to allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan.
  16. 4 Check the oil level again. Fill if necessary, but do not overfill.

What part u take off to change the oil


There's a large bolt (plug) at the bottom rear of the oil pan that you must remove to drain the oil. It's also recommended that you remove and replace the oil filter when you do the oil change.
