Always wear protective gloves and eyewear when working with motor oil. Be careful if your car has been running recently as the engine, transmission and exhaust may be very hot. Keep rags or towels nearby to wipe up any spills.

Place an oil drain pan underneath the oil drain plug.

Be sure that the drain pan is positioned so that it will catch the oil when it is streaming out of the pan.

Use a 14 mm socket wrench, or box end wrench, to loosen the oil drain plug until it is loose enough to turn with your fingers.

Finish removing the oil drain plug using your fingers and let it fall into the oil drain pan.

Watch the draining oil for shiny specks. These shiny specks may be metal flakes and could mean that there is a serious problem with your engine internals.
