If you have Mathematica 9, just try
Code:
= plot x+z=0 plane
(don't forget to start with an equal sign).

What version of Mathematica do you have? Student version or Full version?

I'd suggest to use ParametricPlot3D (see attachement). The Student and full version of Mathematica are usually the same in function. I've the home edition of Mathematica 9 on my private laptop and it's absolutely identical with the full version on our institute's computers.

In Mathematica, any version, Plot3D wants an expression or function giving z values as a function of x and y coordinates so... turn x+z==0 into x==-z into -(x+0*y)==z (or just plot -x) and now you have a function giving z values to plot.

In[1]:= Plot3D[-(x + 0*y) (*==z*), {x, -3, 3}, {y, -4, 4}]
Out[1]= ...PlotSnipped...

Carefully check some points on the surface to verify this is correct.
And, if you don't already know... this ---> (*==z*) <--- is a comment in Mathematica code.
