Question about 2001 Toyota Avalon
How too loosen engine oil drain plug
Posted by Anonymous on
I don't think I have seen an oil drain plug that is left hand threaded, it may have been put in wrong and your thread is stripped either on the plug or the oil pan or both. Good luck

SOURCE: How to change engine oil?
You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.
You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.
Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill

- There is no drain plug on the transmission. You will need to remove all bolts from trans oil pan.
SAFETY: Use Proper protective equipment. Jack stands, eye protection etc.
We like to use a garbage can lid with a small drain hole in it as a funnel, As it is larger than the pan and oil will seem like its coming from all directions. so try to let the pan fall from one side.
There is a magnet in the bottom of the pan, remove clean and replace.
This is a great time to also re-torque the valve body bolts. You will need a tech-manual for this.
Install new gasket. torque all bolts. Add fluid approx 4 quarts of the correct fluid and restart vehicle check fluid level often and check for leaks.
Ensure you properly dispose of the waste transmission fluid at your local hazmat center.
Hope this tip helps.
