Re: 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.

the motor oil drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan, some are at the bottom of the pan but on the edge of the pan that goes from the flat lower part of the pan to the side. it will be the only drain bolt on the oil pan.
generally oil drain plug is on the bottom of the mower.there some on side of motor located at bottom of the motor. some take wench and some take Allen wench. the ones on the bottom of the motor is accessible from under side of the deck.
There is a small Black threaded cap located on the Bottom portion of the motor. This is your drain plug. There should be 2, one is a little higher which is your Oil fill plug (usually Yellow or Red), the lower one which is on the opposite side should be your drain plug. Could also be a square head screw located at the bottom of the motor that you remove to drain the oil.
Hi Anonymous, the engine oil tank is underneath the transmission, the engine oil drain plug is in the front left corner of the oil pan, the transmission oil drain plug is located on the bottom right side of the oil pan. The engine oil fill spout is located in the right front corner of transmission. Good luck
Clean the underside of the motor with soap and water to remove any dirt and oil build-up that could contaminate the motor.
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
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.
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.
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.
Remove the oil filter with an oil filter wrench and discard the old filter.
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
Add your engine oil into the oil tank. Replace the cover and wipe away any spilled oil.
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.
The drain plug is located on the very bottom of the motor. There is what that is called an oil pan that fits on the bottom part if the motor and there is a plug that will probably take a 13 or 15 mm wrench or socket to unscrew it. Turn the plug counter clockwise to remove it.
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.
The engine oil drain is on the lower left side of the crankcase, beneath the crankcase side cover toward the front. Bolt w/copper or aluminum sealing washer. Transmission drain plug is on the lower left side also but to the rear just back of the cover. This is a larger bolt w/sealing washer. These things are tricky to find the first time because they are not located in the usual bottom locations.
