You can usually find the screw or plug in the oil pan in either the bottom front part of the oil pan on the bottom facing the ground or on the back of the oil pan which would not be visible unless you actually get under the car or put it on a lift. It shoud be facing the back of the motor.

How do you change the oil on a Dodge Avenger?

Well if it helps, I have a 1996 2.0L 16 Valve 4 cylinder engine. If you jack the car up in front, and get under it, you should see the oil pan almost directly under the engine, but slightly towards the passenger side. When the pan is located, you should see a screw towards the back and bottom of the pan. Loosen the screw, but have a pan to catch the oil ready. Once the oil starts to run out, keep unscrewing until the screw is all the way removed. Give it a few minutes to drain, then unscrew the oil filter, if you are changing it, and dump it's contents into the dirty oil and then put it in the box of the new one and dispose of it. When the oil is all drained and down to about a drip, wipe off the oil pan's screw and replace it into the back of the oil pan. Then, apply a slight amount of new oil around the rubber gasket of the new oil filter, and install it, appling about 10 to 15 pounds of pressure to it after it is snug. Once the screw is reinstalled and the new filter is in place, you can comense adding the new oil into the engine. Mine takes about 4 quarts, but amount may vary depending on the engine size and the amount of time alloted to the pan to drain. Once you are all done, check the dip stick to ensure you have added the proper amount of oil and watch under the car for a few days to make sure there are no leaks. Hope this helps and if you know of an easy way to change the headlight bulbs, that would be much appricated. daman155
