Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Well, you'll want to get under your car and locate the oil pan. It should look something like a metal box and you'll find it in the middle of the engine area. There will be a nut, probably 9/16th size, so you';ll need a wrench or socket. When this becomes loose enough, use your fingers to twist it off. Be warned! Once this nut is off oil will immediatly become rushing out. You'll probably want to have a bucket or something to catch the oil. Once the oil has drained, tighten the nut back onto the oilpan. The oil filter shouldn't be far from the oilpan, probably a little bit upwards, you'll should be able to see it from where you drained your oil, but you can also sometimes spot it when leaning over your engine. Be sure to wet the lip of your new oil filter with clean/new oil before replacing it!

SOURCE: Locating oil filter
If you're under your car, right at the oil pan, look straight up from the pan (if your head is toward the back and your legs toward the front). It is up about a foot, and the filter should be jutting out to the back. If it's the first time you're changing the filter, I believe it will be white, for motorcraft. About the diameter of a chunky soup can.
