Drain plug location

What is the plug that is directly under the motor and when pulled 3 or 4 tbs oil came out? Should I replace the oil in the plug? If I don't, will it harm my bike?

It's a crankcase drain plug.
Almost everyone ignores it.
About the only time you'd use it is to drain the last little bit of oil before pulling the motor to split the cases.

Follow the hose that goes to the frame from the oil tank. Loosen the clamp and pull.

Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.

SOURCE: oil drain plug

Hi
It is located on the right side just under the oil tank ; if you follow the rudder hose that exits the rear right side of your oil tank it leads to the bottom of the frame under this is the oil plug. This hose has a plug clamped to the end of it or stuck into a prug that is welded to the frame.
After this unclamp and pull the plug to make sure that you have the dipstick out before pulling it loose.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.
Thanks Rylee

The nut is a 5/8 socket, its almost directly under the seat on the bottom of the engine. Best to pull out the dipstick to drain the oil quicker. Use a new washer when you refit the sump plug to prevent leaks.

Fuel injected 2008 triumph america , loss of power and fire in central part of nearside exhaust


Instructions
    • 1 Clean the underside of the motor with soap and water to remove any dirt and oil build-up that could contaminate the motor.
    • 2 Warm your motorcycle to operating temperature by starting the motor and letting the oil warm up or by taking a short ride. The oil will expand slightly and flow better to give you a more accurate reading.
    • 3 Park the motorcycle on a level surface and turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position. Place your Triumph on its center stand, if equipped with one, to provide additional stability.
    • 4 Place your catch basin directly below the oil drain plug on the underside of the motor and remove the drain plug with the appropriately-sized socket. Allow the oil to drain until the flow has reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug.
    • 5 Locate the oil sump drain plug and center your catch basin below it. Remove the drain plug and allow the oil to drain until the flow is reduced to a thin trickle then replace the drain plug. Replace the drain plug. Note that this step is only required on certain models, such as the Thunderbird Sport and older "oil-in-frame" models.
    • 6 Remove the oil filter with an oil filter wrench and discard the old filter.
    • 7 Fill the new oil filter with fresh oil, coating the inner lip of the filter lightly with oil to provide a stronger seal before screwing the filter onto the motor. Tighten the filter by hand until it is secure.
    • 8 Add your engine oil into the oil tank. Replace the cover and wipe away any spilled oil.
    • 9 Locate the engine sump bolt, located at the base of the cylinders and the carburetors. Remove the bolt and add half a quart of oil into the sump. Replace the bolt and wipe away any spilled oil. Note that this step is only required on older "oil-in-frame" models.

This is straight from the repair manual:

cable.

the tool oriented vertically. See Figure 1-1.
c. Using a 3/8 inch drive with a 4 inch extension, turn
wrench in a counterclockwise direction. Do not use

available.

Where is the oil pan drain plug on a 2005 sunfire


A 2003-05 Sunfire most likely has the Ecotec 2.2 motor. The filter is a cartridge element type which is located on the forward side of the engine on the drivers side; (below and slightly left of the power steering reservoir).

The oil filter is located under (inside) a black cover about 3-4 inches around and has a large hex head nut molded on top of it, to fit a socket on it. When replacing the oil filter element, press the tipped O-ring side of the filter down into the filter cavity until it locks in place. Then place the cover on top and tighten it.

The cover will automatically lock onto the top section of the oil element as it is being tightened. The drain plug is pretty standard and on the oil pan. However, most people are accustomed to a metal oil pan, and when viewing the Ecotec motor they confuse the metal TRANSMISSION pan as the motor oil pan.

The motor oil pan is actually aluminum, and looks like a continuation of the upper motor. For that reason, you don't "see" an oil pan. Knowing this fact, the oil drain plug is now easy to locate. Look at the far passenger side of the metal transmission oil pan. Now look at the very front of that section of the transmission oil pan and follow that ''line of sight'' until you reach the bottom of the aluminum motor (''oil pan''). The oil drain plug is right there, with it's head facing towards the transmission oil pan.

The drain plug (on a 2005 Sunfire) requires a 15mm wrench/socket; and has a built in rubber seal, which should be lubricated with oil before tightening.

Where is the drain plug located?


Look on the right side of your bike down under the battery. You should see a hose with a "spring clamp" on it. Squeeze the clamp and pull the hose off of the lug on the frame to drain your oil tank. Helps if the oil is warm.

How do you get the oil out of mower to change it is there a plug or do you tip it over


Most mowers have a drain plug on the bottom of the engine on the side. Look for a drain plug with a square head - this is also usually how you check oil level (in many mowers). this is applicable to both riding and push mowers.
