On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.
Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.
Under the engine block you will find the sump.
On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.
Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.
Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.
When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.
Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.
Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.
Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.
If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.
Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.
Now lower the car to to the ground.
At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.
Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.
If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.
Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.
With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.
Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.
Check the oil level and top up as required.
I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.
This should solve the problem.

go to www.gates.com on the lower right hand side under popular topics, click on timing belts, then on the left hand side click Parts Locator and Interchange, enter your cars info and the first page that comes up will show you a camera icon for a pic of how your belt is routed. The tensioner pulley is the one mounted on a silver arm, usually at the top. Hope this helps let me know.
