Will oil drain from oil filter hole if you can't get drain plug off?

No, removing the oil filter will only remove what oil is trapped in the oil filter. If you cannot get the drain plug off then you will have to insert a tube down the dipstick tube and pump the oil out. My advice it to take the vehicle to a trusted mechanic and have them remove the drain plug. It can be removed with the proper tools.

How do you change the headlight just the bulb of the Cadillac Catera 2001 without removing the battery you could not see the ring around the bulb and don't know how to remove it?

It can be done by touch but the risk to damage the headlight assembly (ass'y) is high. To take out the ass'y is done by removing the grille (4 screws) then the molding under the ass'y (no tools) then 2 screws under the ass'y. To replace the bulb by touch, remove the cover above the headlight (looks like a part of the shroud). Remove the black plastic cover. Pinch and remove the wire harness, pinch and remove the bulb holder. The bulb holder has a wire retainer similar to a paper clip and can pop out of position easily. Pinch and remove operations can break a plastic hinge that's necessary for headlight aiming (that's the risk). It seems like a lot of trouble to take out the whole ass'y but its really one of the easiest things you can do on a Catera. Start to finish it will be about 30 minutes for each light.

Where is the radiator drain plug on Jeep Cherokee 1998?

On the lower END of the radiator, passenger (right) side. However, this info is NOT useful, as it is well nigh impossible to access with tools or fingers. You can see it (with a mirror), but that's it! Better plan on removing the lower hose to drain. The Jeep Cherokee radiator drain plug is plastic and very fragile. You should remove the lower radiator hose to drain the cooling system.

Pretty $$ tools. The tools can be rented here for 30 days:
