Where is the drain plug on dry sump system?
I don't own a C-6, or a Z06, but I wanted to know how you would go about changing the oil. I wanted to know where the drain plug is on the dry sump oil system. Does it have a drain plug? I saw a show featuring the building of Vettes on cable recently, featuring the Z06. The Z06 uses a dry sump oil system and therefore there is no oil pan on the engine, a separate reserve container. Wondering how that is drained for an oil change.
There is an oil pan or SUMP as most call it, per se, but there are 2 drain plugs.
One is for the sump and one is for the holding tank and lines going to it.
The "pan" plug isn't exactly dry but it holds less than a quart. The other plug holds the rest of the oil. (7 more quarts for 2006-2008, and 9.5 add'l quarts for 2009MY cars.)
Changing the oil is just like any other GM product, just pull 2 plugs instead of one!
