4 cylinder
Auto Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 11 months ago

You see the plug in the top of the oil pan there? that oil pan is upside down, but if you picture the oil pan turned over, the plug will be at the bottom of the oil pan, and it is a 15mm size. Does that answer your question? thank you.

Are you changing the oil now?

Auto Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 11 months ago

If so you will need a 32mm socket or 1 1/4 socket up top to get the oil filter housing out. Let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
