How do i change my oil

Drain old oil, replace filter, fill with new oil.
First find out how much oil your car holds, and what viscosity (you'll see on any new bottle of oil, 10w-30, 5w-30, 0w-20, etc.) Then find out what filter you need. Honestly walmart is your best bet. They will tell you which model your car needs. Get your car on a sloped surface, (you can buy plastic ramps cheap specially for this) and remove the plug from the oil pan Located toward the front of the car directly under the dashboard. You can google pics of an oil pan. Drain the used oil, find your old filter, remove it, replace, put the plug back in and fill it with however much yoyr engine needs. Most cars take 3 to 5 quarts. Good luck

What if any special tools are required for a

No special tools required. MAYBE!

I say maybe because if you've ever taken you car into a quick lube place and they've changed your filter they are Notorious for installing the new filter on TOO TIGHT!. They are actually told to do this so the owner is forced to come back and have them do the next oil change. Its almost criminal.

The plug to drain the oil from the car is a simple 5/8in bolt, a socket or open ended wrench with work just fine.

The Oil filter SHOULD be able to unscrew by hand. Now if its on there too tight. There is a tool at any auto parts store called a Oil filter Wrench. They run around 10-20 bucks. all it is a handle with a metal ribbon that loops around the filter and allows a better grip.

You can also get away with jamming a screw driver into the filter and using that for leverage to unscrew it from the engine. *Note* This is extremely messy!!!

Just remember when installing a new filter to tighten it one half turn after it becomes tight. It does not need to be cranked on there hard.

Hope this Helps and thanks for using

How do I change the oil filter on a MAZDA 6 4 CYL..

You don't need a special tool. Use a 6mm allen to remove the filter drain plug. It will probably start to spin the filter housing. You can remove the housing by hand or with a regular oil filter wrench.

NEWBIE: How difficult is it to change the oil and oil filter?

ok, this should be pretty basic but if you have any doubts buy a repair manual for your car from auto zone or checker or wherever you shop.
first off buy the new filter and the oil, that filter should look very similar to the one that is on your car, although keep in mind that the color and sometimes even shape can be a little different, but you have a basic idea of what to look for.
the oil filter will be on the motor itself, as well as the drain plug, usually both are easier to access from underneath the car.  remove the oil filter counter-clockwise, some oil will leak out at this point and may be hot, so be careful, this may require a tool depending on how tight it is, the tool is usually relatively cheap.  NEVER use an oil filter tool to tighten your filter, it is only for removal and may damage the filter adapter, when you put the new filter on tighten it as much as you can with just your hands, this should be plenty tight. you will also need a drain pan, preferrably sealable so you can take it with you when it is full to be dumped (usually checker/auto zone will have an oil dump). 
next loosen and take out the drain plug, this will be on the bottom of the oil pan, which is the bottom part of the motor itself.  when the oil stops (or reduces to a very fine flow being almost all gone), put the drain plug back in and tighten it down.  add 3 or 4  quarts of oil, start the car and let it run for 15 to 20 seconds, this will fill up the oil filter, then check the oil and add as needed.
hope this helps.
