        Correct, the drain plug near the front of the pan drains the external dry sump reservoir ( tank ) and the hoses. The drain plug near the oil filter drains the residual ( about one quart ) oil from the oil pan.

            Scott, your welcome, sir. Also, do your engine a favor when you change the oil and filter, please prefill the filter with oil before you install it. The engine will get oil pressure quicker on the first startup after the oil change.

                  Actually, one thing annoys me about changing the oil on this car (and many, many others). You can't remove the drain plug without covering your wrench, and probably your hand, in oil, because the plug is vertical. I've had other cars and bikes with the plug is horizontal, at the very front of rear of the oil pan. When the oil starts to drain out, it flow down, away from your hand and wrench, instead of all over it. A much smarter design.

                    Our 2014 Chrysler 300 has its oil filter on top of the engine in a small tank. You unscrew the lid and remove the filter , no oil is spilled. We also vacuum the oil out of the oil pan, from the dipstick tube, so no need at all to go under the car. Many other cars are using the same system.
