I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. The 5th O ring is up inside the oil filter cover (#125 in witek's picture above) at the top of the long tube. Over the past decade, gasoline-refining technology has decreased combustion pollutants, helping to reduce engine oil contaminants. The second method is to drain the oil when the engine is cool, when a good percentage of the oil has settled into the sump. Another benefit of the second method is that it is easier to detect coolant (antifreeze) leaks. Using a suitable wrench (preferably six- point), unscrew the drain plug to the end of the threads. While the sump is draining, open a container of new oil and pour oil into the center of the new filter. Slowly roll the filter around; this allows the filter media to absorb the oil and minimize oil starvation at the bearings upon initial start-up. While the filter media is wicking up the oil and the sump is draining, remove the old filter and turn it over to drain.
The angle at which the filter mounts to the engine will dictate how much oil to put in the filter. 9.  Finally, test the oil levels with the oil dipstick to make sure you have the right amount of oil in the car.

Question I have above where the oil filter screw in to the pan there's a part missing, it's threaded within the inside of the oil pan, from photo's I've seen it some sort of check valve or something.

When i first replaced o rings the ones i took off were very hard and brittle and all snapped when i removed them.
Additives increase the ability of the engine oil to maintain adequate lubrication quality even when contaminated. Slowly tip the plug upward and away to get a feel of where to place the drain pan to catch the oil. Pressure from the pump pushes the oil through the media (from outside to inside), out the center to the oil galleries. In many cases, the friction provided by the disposable gloves will allow a sufficient grip to unscrew the old filter without using a filter wrench. Install the filter according to filter torque instructions; this makes it easier to remove the filter next time. In between adding the remaining specified amount to the crankcase, do a final cleanup from underneath, put the tools away and inspect the engine compartment for leaks. I recently graduated from Boston College having studied Film, so know a little bit about everything and a lot about movie making. Being in the quick lube oil change business for over 15 years, the Oil Filter Wrench makes the job so much easier. I had real doubts about this website but your promptness of response, quick followup and to the point answer with picture was incredible. The site and services are provided "as is" with no warranty or representations by JustAnswer regarding the qualifications of Experts. In a gasoline engine, the oil is contaminated primarily by combustion gases seeping past the piston rings.
Performing the job in a set sequence with the proper tools will not only make it easier, it will also reduce the likelihood of making a mess, or worse, a costly mistake. By first cracking the drain plug slightly, if there is a coolant leak, water and antifreeze will be the first to run out.
A filter wrench will be required if the filter is inaccessible by hand, if the filter was over-tightened or the engine was overheated.
Clean the area around the drain plug and install; wipe area again and check for drain plug weep.
I prefer to begin filling the crankcase with the open container I used for the filter; it helps keep track of the amount. After filling with the recommended amount, close the fill cap and remove the disposable gloves.

I looked at the underside to change the oil and I am having a hard time locating the Oil Plug.
Minute airborne particles that escape past the air filter also contribute to oil contamination.
As a result, perhaps oil changes will be necessary only a few times during the life of the engine. If the procedure can be performed quickly and easily, it can be an incentive to do it regularly.
One suggestion here: a copper gasket on the drain plug lasts longer than a fiber washer or nylon gasket.
JustAnswer is not intended or designed for EMERGENCY questions which should be directed immediately by telephone or in-person to qualified professionals. As engine components wear, more gases will slip past the rings during the compression and power cycle.
Until then, timely oil changes, maintaining the engine and changing the air filter will help prolong engine life. The thought behind this is contaminates are suspended in the oil and when the sump is drained, the harmful contaminates drain with the oil.
The location where the procedure is performed should be reasonably level as most sump bottoms are formed to tilt toward the drain plug. I saw a square shaped screw in type looking thing just above the oil filter but im just afraid that I may start to drain the Transmission fluid.
