Where under the car is the drain olug for the enigine oil. I noticed my car just started leaking a heavy amount of oil in a steady stream, and I want to check the plug to see if maybe it has came loose.

The drain plug is attached to the oil pan. If it is not loose and you have recently had an oil change, also check the oil filter to see if that is loose. If they are both tight, have it put up on a life to see where the leak is stemming from. Did you hit something?

I hit a speed bump that was higher then I thought it was. But I wasnt going fast or anything. Although it wasnt leaking before that so maybe that is the cause of this sudden leak. I can see it dripping out to the right of the passeger tire.
