Hi you will need a jack.the drain plug is located at the verry bottom of the engine on the oil pan.do not know what motor you have, but look at the new oil filter,and try to locate the one on the car (it may be a diffrent color),use a oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter.use new oil to lubricate the new oil filter rubber gasket,and put on as tight as you can by hand (only.)

How to change your oil


umm if you have to ask you probably shouldn't try it yourself. But If you have everything needed to change your oil and are willing and able then here's what you do....
First: you will need and oil pan, funnel, wrench that fits your oil plug, new oil filter and possibly something to help remove your old oil filter, car jack stands/jack to lift your car.
Second: lift your car up enough to get under it using the jack, place oil pan under car's oil plug.
Next: remove oil plug let oil drain.
Next: remove oil filter
Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug.
Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.

Leaking oil and yellow light came on


Sorry to hear your bad news. Sounds like a major oil leak. First some introductory look sees. Looks for oil leaking near the filter. Did you recently have an oil change? If no - what is the mileage? To make a through diagnosis and repair you will need to get under the car most likely. I would STOP driving the car NOW. Get some jack stands and jack the car up and put the stands under it in a SAFE place. The owners manual will help to show you where your model is meant to be jacked and braced.
Wipe off all the oil you can and inspect for oil leaks CLOSEST to the FRONT of the car as wind will blow it backwards. With a high mileage car and the oil light or check engine light coming on. Check for oil leaks at the line - the oil pressure sending unit and the oil filter. These are the most common. If not one of these. Try to fill the oil again and if there is plenty of oil in the car - start it and lay under the car CAREFULLY and see if you can find oil escaping from somewhere on the engine. Also take your vin numbers down and call the local dealer to see if there is a recall on your particular car that somehow effects the problem your having it can save you thousands.

Hope this helps you get your car repaired and running again.

On the GM car the engine will have to be removed to change your oil pump, however it is easiest to pull engine and transmission as an assembly. My question is why do you think you have a failed oil pump??? If oil pump fails it usually screws up engine too....

Want to change the oil myself,don't know how


look in your owners manual or look up online what type of oil you acura takes. Go to the store buy a 5 quart bottle of the oil type. Also buy an oil filter for your car. Just ask the people at the store to look up what filter fits your car. Get under the car or jack it up a little and put it on jack stands and get under it. Locate the oil pan and at the rear of it there is a small drain plug which is a bolt. Loosen it and get ready because once you remove it the oil will come pouring out so have a pan under the car to catch it. Then locate the oil filter and twist it off, replace the filter with the new filter and hand tighten. You dont need to gorilla grip it just snug it. Then replace the drain plug. Now your ready to refill with new oil up top. Make sure you get the right oil type and also lookup how many quarts your car needs. It is easy it takes less than 15minutes
