The Suzuki oil drain plug torque specification is 30 pounds. Over tightening the oil drain plug can cause the oil pan threads to strip.
AS with most automobiles, there is a drain plug on the oil pan, so first you would drain the oil, and then replace the drain plug. The more difficult part with the I-30 is the oil filter, which is located just above the passenger side front tire, the access is somewhat tight, but that's where you will find it, I find it easier to access if I turn the wheels to the full right lock position, and I gain access from the front. Once you remove and replace the filter, you simply refill the Oil from the hole provided on the valve cover.
Locate the drain plug, size 13mm, drain the oil, replace drain plug. The oil filter is located by the dipstick. Replace filter put 5.6qtz of 5w-30 synthetyc and you are good to go. Henry Joseph

One of the first things you're going to need to know is where the radiator drain plug is located. That just so happens to be one of the most popular questions in the Taurus / Sable categories.It is to found in the same spot it's been for years - the problem is, on 1996 and newer models there is a plastic panel that hides it from casual inspection.See "Related Questions" below for a few ideas on how to remove it, avoid having to keep removing it in the future and a whole lot more.REMINDER: Make sure the engine is COLD BEFORE opening the capCooling System- Drain and FillEnsure that the engine is completely cool prior to starting this service.Remove the recovery tank / coolant reservoir or radiator cap.Raise and support the vehicle.Place a drain pan of sufficient capacity under the radiator and open the petcock (drain) on the radiator. Plastic petcocks easily bind. Before opening a plastic radiator petcock, spray it with some penetrating lubricant.Drain the cooling system completely.Close the petcock.Remove the drain pan.Lower the vehicle.Determine the capacity of the cooling system, then property refill the system with a 50/50 mixture of fresh coolant and distilled water.Leave the recovery tank or radiator cap off to aid in bleeding the system.Start the engine and allow it to idle until the thermostat opens (the upper radiator hose will become hot). The coolant level should go down, this is normal as the system bleeds the air pockets out of the system.Refill the system with coolant to the proper level.Turn the engine OFF and check for leaks.Locate the drain plug. It should be on the drivers side of the radiator. You have to remove the splash guard. Use a 6mm ratchet and remove 4 bolts and just slide the splash guard away from the front end. The drain plug on our 99 Sable is white, but clearly visible when you move the splash guard out of the way. Drain the coolant into a pan and keep away from animals! Dispose of properly. Close the plug and fill the radiator with water and circulate by running the engine with the heat on. You can use a radiator flush solution that you can get at any parts place for a few dollars. Run the car for at least 30 minutes, or drive at least 30 miles. Drain the radiator again, and then close the plug and add your coolant. Make sure to close the plug when you are done!

Bottom drivers-side, engine-side corner of the radiator. A total pain to get to and there's part of the frame in the way, so coolant gets everywhere. (This is from experience gained within the last 30 minutes.) It's also plastic and can break if you're not careful. Some recommend disconnecting the lower radiator hose on the other side instead.
it does not have one.you have to loosen the pan bolts on one end and let it drain into a waste oil pan
