If all is as you say you now need to check that it is mechanically sound, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of scuffing or damage to the piston and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.
Good luck.

Looking for the oil drain

here's the whole process
Start the engine and let it idle in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Hotter oil drains more completely. Shut off the engine and let the oil drain into the drain pan for five minutes.

  • 2 Unscrew the engine oil-filler cap. You don't need to remove it, since you just want air to get in so the oil can drain. The engine oil cap is labeled SAE 5W-30 and is on the right side of the engine toward the front for both the V6 and the V8 engine. The dipstick is an inch or two away on both engines.
  • 3 Slide under the car engine and locate the oil drain bolt. It will be the lowest point on the engine. Don't mistake the transmissionunderlined.png?1 fluid drain plug for the oil drain bolt. You can tell them apart because the metal around the engine oil drain bolt will still be hot.
  • 4 Loosen the drain bolt counterclockwise with a crescent wrench. If it doesn't budge, use a closed end wrench for a better grip. Slide a drain pan under the engine oil drain bolt. Unscrew and remove the drain bolt by hand. Workunderlined.png?1 on the oil filter while the oil drains.
  • 5 Identify the oil filter as baseball sized; a cylinder about as tall as it is wide. It will be on the underside of the engine. Orient your oil filter wrench to grip when turned counterclockwise, if it's the type that has an oriented grip. (Some oil-filter wrenches grip when turned one direction but not the other.) Fit the oil filter wrench over the oil filter. Turn it, preferably with a socket wrench, though a crescent wrench suffices. The male socket goes in the center hole of the oil filter wrench. Just loosen the filter with the wrench. Unscrew and remove the filter by hand.
  • 6 Screw the drain bolt back in, after draining for an hour. If you use a torque wrench, make sure to tighten to 29 foot-pounds. Edmunds recommends replacing the washer, since drain bolt washers are compressible and wear out fast.
  • 7 Remove the O-ring that seals between the filter and the engine. Clean the engine cavity with a rag, including rubber O-ring residue. Coat the new O-ring on the new filter with clean oil, hold it in the cavity and screw the new filter on manually until you feel some resistance. Set the oil filter wrench to grasp clockwise. Place the oil filter wrench on the new filter and turn clockwise an additional 2/3 revolution. Be careful not to overtighten, which can lead to an oil leak. For the oil filter, use GM part 25177917 or ACDelco part PF2129 for the 3.6L V6, and use GM part 89017342 or ACDelco part PF61 for the 4.6L V8.
  • 8 Pour six quarts of motor oil in the refill cap opening of the V6 engine and eight quarts. into the V8 engine. Cadillac recommends that you use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM4718M. Otherwise, you could cause engine damage that is not covered by your warranty. Cadillac also recommends using SAE 5W-30 viscosity oil, with the API "for gasoline engines" starburst on the packagingunderlined.png?1.
  • 9 Check the dipstick, which is one or two inches from the engine oil-filler cap. The oil should come to the cross-hatched area, but not higher. Overfilling can reduce mileage and even harm the engine. Screw the filler cap back on.
  • 10 Start the engine and idle it in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Inspect the drain bolt and the filter for oil leaks. Take the car off any supports.
  • 11 Reset the engine oil life system after every oil change. Scroll the Driver Information Center (DIC) until it displays "Oil Life." Hold the reset button until it reads 100%.
  • good luck

    My 97dodge intrepid is leaking oil and i want to know where is the oil pan?

    Hi. You might need to Replace the oil pan gasket is the oil is leaking. Here's the procedure on how to Replace the oil pan gasket.

    1. Jack up the front end of the car and slide a jack stand under the vehicle. Make sure the jack stand is securely in place, and then put blocks in front of the rear wheels to keep them from rolling.

    2. Slide under the car and put a drain pan under the drain plug of the oil pan. Loosen the drain plug with a socket wrench and allow all of the old oil to drain into the pan. Remove the old oil filter.

    3. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the dipstick and its housing. Remove the collar on the rear of the oil pan. If the vehicle is equipped with engine oil cooler lines that lead to the oil pan, remove them as well, along with transmission oil cooler clips.

    4. Remove the bolts holding the oil pan, and carefully remove the oil pan. Remove the old gasket. Scrape it with a putty knife if necessary, but be very careful not to scratch the surface.

    5. Wipe out the oil pan with a clean cloth or paper towel, and wipe the joining surface of the oil pan with cleaning fluid or solvent. Apply a thin bead of automotive sealer and install the new gasket.

    6. Replace the oil pan, tightening the bolts securely. Replace the transmission oil cooler clips, engine oil cooler lines, oil pan collar, dipstick housing and dipstick, and reconnect the negative battery cable. Install a new oil filter.

    7. Take the car off the jack stand and fill the engine with the appropriate amount of SAE 10W-30 or SAE 5W-30.

    All the best!

    My snow thrower has been sitting for 4 years and i tried to start it last night and it would not turn over. any suggestions on how to get this started?

    Drain and change the oil. Gasoline starts to deteriorate after 30 days and by 4 years it is unusable. Purchase a new spark plug, can of Seafoam Motor Tune and a can of starter fluid. Remove all the gasoline from the fuel tank. Remove the float bowl and clean it out. Replace the float bowl & turn the fuel supply on. Fill the tank with fresh fuel. Pour the proper amount of Seafoam in the tank as listed on the directions on the can. Remove the spark plug and spray inside the cylinder with a small amount of starter fluid. Install the new spark plug. Now start the engine. You may have to remove the spark plug and do this again. eventually it will start and run. If it does not, you may have to dissemble the carburetor and clean it out.

    I'm a new owner of a 2003 Heritage softail

    You will need either the HD oil filter wrench (HD-44067), which fits over the end of oil filter Harley-Davidson SuperPremium5 Oil Filter 63731-99A and allows you to remove filter with a ratchet and extension, or a strap type oil filter wrench purchased at an autoparts store. I use the strap type generic wrench. The HD wrench, actually a hex cap to fit over end of filter, would be a worthwhile investment. There is very very limited side access to filter on bike neccesitating one of these tools. Pan drain plug on same side, to front of pan at corner. Drain oil, remove filter, wipe off filter mount, fill new filter with fresh oil and install, pour in 5 quarts total using a flexible neck funnel, and your done. It takes 5 quarts total including what you use to fill new filter. SAE 20W50 or SAE 60 grade is appropriate for ambient temperatures above 80 deg to over 100 deg F. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH "O" RING !!!!!

    This one is tricky get yourself a service manual. "O" rings are a pain man! train plug should be line up with dip stick.
