You are missing a service manual. Get one for $50 from your dealer. well worth the investment. Your engine drain plug is the one on the left side that faces straight sideways down where the jiffy is. If the oil won't drain out of there then it is not returning to the tank and that is a different issue.

When you refer to the drain plug, your are not referring to any plug on the engine are you?

When you drained it did you also remove the oil filter? That should make it shotgun like a beer.
