Default Drain Plug on 2003 VUE

Hello everyone. I am probably having quite a blonde moment right now, and as a newbie, I beg you for your help and patience.

I thought that I was going to have a breezy time changing the oil on my 2003 Saturn VUE this afternoon, until I went under the car looking for the oil drain plug. I was expecting the really obvious bolt from older cars, but either I can't see it, or it isn't there and I am looking in the wrong place.

Can someone please tell me where I can find it? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Mindy

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You don't say which engine you have, but I need a T45 Torx drive to drain the oil on my V6.

It is either a 45 torx for a v6 or a 15mm for a 4 cyl. They are both at the farthest point down on the engine, facing the rear..... about the best I can explain without pics....

...
