Basic procedure for almost all vehicles:
Warm engine to operating temperature. (Hot oil drains more quickly and more completely) Raise vehicle enough to crawl under it on your back (secure with wood blocks or jack stand so it doesn't slip off jack) set parking brake to avoid roll. Get a suitable container for used oil, (at least 5QT capacity) Locate oil pan, will have a plug with a bolt head on it on bottom corner of pan. (usually middle bottom of the engine in location) Loosen and remove oil plug being careful not to get hot oil on your hand. (gloves recommended) Locate oil filter on either underside or toward the side of engine. Remove oil filter with oil filter wrench. (they are usually on too tight to remove by hand) Allow to drain thoroughly for about 10 minutes. Coat new oil filter gasket with fresh motor oil. Screw oil filter on until contact with housing , then an additional 1/4 turn. Replace oil plug. Tighten to 45 ft lbs, or pretty tight, do not over tighten. Lower vehicle. (On level ground) Fill engine with correct weight oil (probably 10W-30W for yours) 4 QTS. Remove oil check dipstick and wipe. Start motor, allow to run for 30 seconds to fill up oil filter and circulate well. Shut off engine, wait 1 minute for oil to drain back into the oil pan, then check oil level with dipstick. Add more as needed to reach full mark on dipstick. (4.5 QTS for V6, 5 QTS for V8 usually) DO NOT OVERFILL! Start motor, check for leaks under vehicle. If ok, you are done. I use the 5QT containers of oil (cheaper too) and then put used oil back into empty container and take to a recycling station for disposal.
2006 uplander, there maybe a cover to remove to get to the oil pan, lets see if i can find a picture of the drain plug.okay im not sure the engine size in this uplander but they all should be about the same, here are some diagrams to help you locate the oil filter and oil pan drain plug. the oil filter is located from under the engine on the driverside behind the ac compressor, the oil drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan on the pass/side. heres a diagram of the two . hope this helps.

IF YOU BLOW OR DAMAGE THE ENGINE WARRANTY WILL NOT COVER THE ENGINE.FIRST OF ALL TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL YOU CRANK VECHICLE UP LET IDLE FEW MINUTES TO THIN OUT OIL THEN YOU TURN OFF ENGINE. YOU NEED TO RAISE VECHICLE USING THE FACTORY JACK.USE JACK STANDS. LOOK IN OWNERS FOR CAR JACK LIFTING LOCATIONS TO KEEP FROM DAMAGING ROCKER PANELS. AND PLACE A DRAIN PAN UNDER THE OIL PAN. UNDER THE VECHICLE.YOU NEED A WRENCH TO REMOVE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG.WHEN ALL THE OLD OIL DRAIN OUT IN THE DRAIN PAN.SCREW BACK IN THE DRAIN PLUG TIGHTEN IT DONT OVER TIGHTEN STRIP THREADS.THEN YOU NEED SOCKET TYPE OIL WRENCH YOU USE WITH A 3/8 RATCHET WRENCH REMOVE OIL FILTER HOUSING.PLACE RAGS AROUND THE OIL FILTER HOUSING TO CATCH OIL SPILL.

well the drain plug is ALWAYS gonna be on the bottom of the oil pan bolted to the bottom of the engine, the filter is either gonna be on the oil pump near the oil pan or it will be screwed into the side of the engine block, either way you should be able to see it just from a quick look from underneath the car.
to be honest most shops charge cost for an oil change it is a loss leader they eat the labour in hopes of other problems they find and hopefully they get to fix it they will point out the problems with the hopes of future business
check out the prices at local parts store for filter and fluid cost then remember the old oil should be disposed of legaly meaning a disposal fee and a trip to drop off station then theres the tools and the time required the mess and the gooey greasy mess thet will folow
trust me even my self as a mechanic take my car to the garage for an oil change
but if you have your heart set on doing it your self
buy a chilton book from local parts store they will list alll steps snd even show pictures the help you
well eithor way good luck and enjoy the experience and the whisdom
look in your owners manual or look up online what type of oil you acura takes. Go to the store buy a 5 quart bottle of the oil type. Also buy an oil filter for your car. Just ask the people at the store to look up what filter fits your car. Get under the car or jack it up a little and put it on jack stands and get under it. Locate the oil pan and at the rear of it there is a small drain plug which is a bolt. Loosen it and get ready because once you remove it the oil will come pouring out so have a pan under the car to catch it. Then locate the oil filter and twist it off, replace the filter with the new filter and hand tighten. You dont need to gorilla grip it just snug it. Then replace the drain plug. Now your ready to refill with new oil up top. Make sure you get the right oil type and also lookup how many quarts your car needs. It is easy it takes less than 15minutes
the 2007 avalon has a cannister oil filter loof under the passenger front of the car youl see the oil pan and drain plug its just in front of the oil pan towards the front of the car its metal casing with a small square in the center thats where youl need a 3/8 exstension and ratchet to loosin the cap to change the gasket for the cap when you get your oil filter it comes with a small plastic piece so you can drain the oil out of the oil filter case, to change the oil filter itself you need a toyota specific oil filter tool to loosin(can get at any toyota dealer run about 20 bucks) take the filter out change the gasket around the case and thats it hope this helps
hi you will need a jack.the drain plug is located at the verry bottom of the engine on the oil pan.do not know what motor you have, but look at the new oil filter,and try to locate the one on the car (it may be a diffrent color),use a oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter.use new oil to lubricate the new oil filter rubber gasket,and put on as tight as you can by hand (only.)
