Read all beffore starting. get all you need and get prepare beffore starting so you wont say any big word. Maybe have some safety glasses and never put youself on the way the oil would go out.
Buy yourself a 4.4L of new 10W30 motor oil, a oil filter, a little bucket of about 8" high and 24" round set of ratchett finaly some towel (for cleaning your tools and your hands if oiled by the old oil). Wait the motor to be cold. If you can, jack it a little bit just for you to be more comfortable under it. Better if you have ramp to put the front of the car on it and dont forget to put some safety like small candel and a tire stpper with the hand-brake on.
Go under the car, locate the oil pan and it's pug. Get the good size key or rattchet for the plug. Put you bucket under the plug, in line of the oil comming out, about 8 inches from the plug. Now unscrew the plug.... it will be a bit dirty and replace the buckey in line with the dirty oil if needed. When empty (about 10 minutes) get the oil cap on top of the motor out, go back under the car put the oil pan plug back (don't forget the washer and don't over tite it) , unscrew the old oil filter (watch for oil comming out from it also). With your finger, put some old oil on the rubber ring of the new oilf fliter and screw it in place of the old one "by hand", don't turn too hard, about half turn after the rubber touched the motor. Put the new oil in (where the oil cap on top-front of the motor was).. all the 4.4L. (watch for not putting oil all over, it will smell as hell when driving until it will all burn). Put the oil cap on. Recheck the filter, the oil pan plug and the oil cap. If all ok, Start the motor for 5 minutes but stay parked. Check the sound of the motor, it should go nicely ( by the way, get a full memory of this nice sound, it could alert you of somehting wrong if it dose not sound like this one day). Get you tools and the bucket from under the car, recheck the oil filter and the oil pan plug. If no oil is dripping, stop the car, get it down, get all things clear and clean. You can put the old oil in the can where was the new one beffore the job and get it back to your garage so they recycle it. The filter is gooing to the garbage. That's it. If not in a hurry and take your time with some good music and a coffee, you can do it in 20-45 minutes.
