No picture here. Look under the truck, you will see the engine oil drain plug just infront of the transmission. It is a 15mm, and faces rearward, and it is in the engine oil pan. Put a wrench on it and turn it counter-clockwise to loosen. Then remove it rest of the way by hand. After the oil is drained, put the plug back in and tighten it, but do not over tighten it. You will need an oil filter wrench to loosen this filter, unless you have very small, but strong hands. The filter also needs to be turned counter-clockwise to remove. After the filter is loosened a little, oil will come pouring out. Turn it more and more oil will come out. Replace the oil filter and snug it up, but do not over tighten it. Now, put 6 quarts of oil in it and your good to go. You will need to reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL light too.

To resest the change oil light you will need to pump the gas 3 times when the key is in the on position but vehicle not running. Or it has to be done through the radio. check up on the owners manual for what system you have

How to change oil in Tahoe

Prior to installing the new oil filter, be sure & put fresh oil on the seating gasket of the new filter. This will help seating & prevent possible leakage.

And make sure the old oil filter gasket (rubber o-ring) comes off the engine with the oil filter, before putting the new filter on...

Good point. It is quite messy when one "doubles up" an oil filter o-ring. It can and has happened to the best of us.

Yup! Amazing the mess a couple seconds and 60 PSI can make...
