I have no service or owner's manuals for this car.
I need to change the oil. I got under and noticed two different plugs.
There's a big bolt in the side of the oil pan, which looks like your regular oil
plug. Then, there's a triangular shaped panel type thing, with 3 nuts
holding it on. Can anyone tell me what it is for?

The 17MM hex shaped plug is the oil drain.
