SOURCE: fuel filter
first, you have to drain the oil from the drain plug located at the bottom of the oil pan,
after all of the oil have been drain, tighten back the drain plug bolt.
then remove the old oil filter by using a filter wrench, you would need this wrench because it is very hard to remove by plain hands. the oil filter is located at the bottom of the engine or sometimes at its side.
after removing the old one, apply a thin coat of new oil to the rubber o-rings of the new oil filter before inserting just to make a good seal as you tighten it.
now open the oil filler cap at the top of the engine and pour the exact amount of new oil that was specified in your book. and also the correct type of oil that it uses.
then start the engine for 5 mins, turn t off and check the amount of oil at the dip stick. add if necessary..
i hope i was able to fix ur problem...
tnx 4 using fixya

SOURCE: replace the fuel filter
I just took my car to the shop to have them do it because I am lazy. They said that it is inside the tank and it is better changed the same time as the pump.

If it is a 5 speed manual, then you add Transmission oil under the car on the upper side of the transmission. Under the hood on fire wall side there is the speedometer cable. You must remove lock down bolt with # 10 socket and lift straight up. That is where you add/check your Transmission fluid on a 5 speed. Clean the area first and it's fairly simple.
The tube where the dipstick for the Automatic transmission is where you add the Transmission fluid. You will probably need one of those funnels with the really long neck, so that you can get the fluid into the tube without pouring it all over the place. Be careful that you don't overfill the transmission!
Good luck and hope this helps.

1st disconnect your battery
(Tools that I needed. 14mm socket for mounting bolts, 13 mm socket and a drop light. You need to jack up the front end pretty high both sides and put jack stands under each side. (extra precaution I put wood under the wheels because I don't like getting crushed. Slide under your car (bring a drop light) Look up and see your oil filter. Now look left and you will see the starter motor (oh yeah there is a pain in the as s bracket in the way) remove that bracket (14mm should be right) and then remove the bottom bolt of the starter (you may need a long socket extension here 8"?) The next set of bolts you have to get from up above that come from the other side. Get your light in there the one on the left side is easiest so get that last. The one on the right side will have a wiring harness running really close to it. Force your 14mm socket onto it with a 4 in extension. Back the bolt off till it spins a free but leave it in the hole. Remove the second one until you hear the unit fall. When putting the two bolts from the other side in, don't reef on them to get them super tight. Save your core so you can get some money back. Good repair manuel will cost 20 bucks, Haynes auto repair at your local auto parts store. good luck

Testimonial: "Fast Comeback. I think I will become a member here."
first you will have to find out what the light is all about it could be something as simple as a bad airfilter or something more complex like an o2 sensor you can go to auto-zone and they will check the light for free and tell you what the problem is once you do this if you like send me a message and ill tell you how to rectify the problem hope this helps you.
