Where is the oil pan located on a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero?
If you are wanting to change your oil and don't know how to get it out, you use an oil pan.
to get the oil out, go underneath your securely elevated car and look for a square box under there (metal in the components) it should be in the front, middleish, slightly behind your motor. To make sure it's the right box, look for a small screw on the back edge (this is for the 2004 oldsmobile alero) you'll need a wrench, but make sure to put your chest below the screw and your oil pan on top of your chest. or else you will get oil all over yourself. The oil filter is in the front side of the box.
btw my directions are as the car drives (forward is front)
If a 2004 Oldsmobile alero recently had the oil changed but the oil light remains on What process does it take to turn off the oil light Thanks?
Hopefully you mean the "change engine oil" light and not he oil pressure light. Turn the key to the on position (do not start it), within 5 seconds press the accelerator to the floor 3 times. The change engine oil light should flash several times then go out. Who ever changed the oil should have done that for you.
