The oil pan is to catch all of the oil when it is drained.

Step 5:

The creeper is to roll around on the floor and to go under the four-wheeler.

Step 6:

Roll under and find the drain plug to see what size wrench is needed to take the plug out.

Step 7:

This is the correct size to take the drain plug out on this four-wheeler 17mm

Step 8:

Take out the plug and let the oil drain into the pan below.

Step 9:

Lower the four-wheeler back down so the oil all runs out of the engine.

Step 10:

Its going to take a little bit for all of the oil to drain out so by taking off the cap while it is draining it reduce time for the oil change.

    Things to know .
    Oil lasts and does not wear out . It just gets dirty and contaminated. That's what the filter is for.
    Cars and tractors and all motors turn on soft white metal bearings . Whats important is oil pressure and it should not go below 4o pounds per square inch when running the motor . If it does remove and renovate the oil pump.
    Oil lasts much longer than any manufacturer states . they want you to use up much oil so they profit . I do 100,000 kms on my car oil and change the filter at about 33,000 and 66,000 KM
    That's 1000 hours on a boat and 330 hours and 660 hours for filters .
    If you are not going that long then you are polluting the earth unnecessarily.
    Even after that long the oil can be filtered and reused.
