Ok, I am a DIY-re without a lot of experience I guess. I know more than most females and am less afraid of getting dirty than most guys! I am not completely dumb, but I also am only self taught so get confused sometimes due to the limit in my knowledge. Ok with that said. I am trying to do an oil change on my 1995 ford thunderbird which I haven't had for very long. I have done oil changes before, but for some reason I am rather confused once I get underneath this beast! Is there anyone who can explain to me what I am looking at and where exactly from the point of view of laying underneath the car? Like which pan is the oil pan? (I think it's the 1st one closest to the front with a plug facing the drivers side? And the one directly behind it is the transmission pan which has a funny looking thing on it that to me resembles an "o-ring" type seal which is facing the passengers side?) Next, I am pretty sure I figured out where the oil filter is located, but am not 100% sure because it's hard to see from above AND underneath and would hate to make that sort of mistake! Haha I know I must sound really dumb, but like I said this car is new to me and I just don't want to make any costly mistakes. I have searched online trying to find these Answers for far too long already and so I am swallowing my pride and asking for help.
have the same problem?
