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.

Use a 17 mm socket wrench or box end wrench to loosen the oil drain plug until it is loose enough to turn by hand.

Finish removing the oil drain plug by hand to allow the oil to drain.

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.
