For this discussion, we're referring to a 2000 Plymouth Neon. This is the first year of the generation 2 Plymouth Neon. For a Neon Oil Change we'll need to know products and capacities for the Plymouth Neon.

Now, let's get to how to change the oil in a 2000 Plymouth Neon. Other years may be slightly different. This is one of the easiest cars I've worked with as far as changing oil. The filter is accessible, and the oil pan is also easily accessible. I have not ever had any issues with filters or drain plugs leaking, or drain plugs needing replacement on the Neon oil change.
