Remove the oil cap at the top of the engine. Lift vehicle and remove drain plug. Drain oil into an appropriate container. Replace plug using a new drain plug seal. It is recommended to replace the oil filter as well. To replace the oil filter, remove the oil filter cap (next to the oil cap) and remove and replace the filter.
