I am not familiar with your particular vehicle, but to my knowledge the answer is the same for all internal combustion engines, and is therefore generic. The crankcase oil drain plug is usually located at the low point [bottom] of the OIL PAN which is located on the UNDERSIDE of the engine. The oil pan is usually the length of the engine block, and is the width of the block. On some vehicles the drain plug is at the rear edge of the oil pan. On other vehicles, it is located about the midpoint [front to rear] usually on the left edge. The drain plug looks like a bolt head with an attached large washer.
