Hi there,
Changing the oil is really easy.
What youll need is: A new filter which can be purchased from your local automotive retailer, a pan to catch the old oil, some engine treatment to loosen any debris or deposits from within the engine.
Now you should find at the base of the engine a plug of some sort this is your oil drain plug, with the pan to catch the oil slowly remove the plug, REMEMBER: Car is to be off, simple i know but hey. Now let the oil drain for 15-20mins.
After your satisfied the oil is drained locate the oil filter for your vechile, remove it then replace it with your new one. Ensure it is tight to avoid leaks.

Now your ready to add new oil to your engine, only use the reccommended SAE mix for your vechile.
Once you have done this and check the dip stick for oil level.
Turn your car on let it run for 5-10mins to let the oil run through the entire engine.
There you have it your own personal oil change.
Any problems post it!!

My pontiac g6 2007 says the oil is at 20% what does this mean


That is your Oil Life indicator. That means that is is almost time for an oil change. If your oil has recently been changed, then it was not reset when the oil was changed.

This information is covered in the Owner's Manual for your vehicle on page 211.

If you do not have an Owner's Manual, You can get a free PDF version at the link below.

Resetting the oil change monitor in the information centre after an oil change


With the van on, (it does not have to be running.) press the maint button untill the oil miles is showing. Hold down the maint button untill it resets. You can also press the joystick over left or right to set the amount of miles between oil change. Trip reset should do the same as well for the oil and tires.
