Oil change procedure

For the 3.8L, the oil filter is right underneath the engine near the front bumper. Really easy to get to. So, this a general procedure which applies to most oil changes as well:
What you need: new oil filter, 6 quarts of 5w20 oil (the vehicle calls for 5, but, it's always helpful to have a bit extra just in case), socket wrench and socket set, a car lift or a jack, jack stands, and wheel chocks, one can of brake clearner, a shop towel, a little bit of time, and a little arm muscle.
***It is best to let the vehicle cool before doing this. Hot oil hurts!!!
1) Open the hood, take the oil cap off and put somewhere where you won't lost it!2) Either put the car on a lift if you have access to one or dot he following: have the vehicle on a level surface, place chocks or something similar behind the rear wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward, jack the car up, place jack stands under secure spots under the vehicle, slowly let the jack down letting the vehicle rest on the jack stands (if you are unsure on where to place jack stands, best to spend a few bucks to have a shop do the oil change).3) Have a large pan or container ready for the oil to drain into.4) Use a socket wrench (I cannot recall the size needed for the Pacificas) to take the drain plug off of the oil pan. Slowly take the drain plug out so you can also make sure the pan is going to catch the oil.5) Let the oil drain for about 5 to 10 minutes and put the drain plug back in. It doesn't need to be Superman tight!!! It needs to be snug. 6) Spray some brake cleaner on the oil pan where there is oil and wipe off with the shop towel. Be very careful not to get brake cleaner in your eyes. It burns. 'Nuff said.7) Now, the oil filter is not at an angle. It's on the engine straight. What this means is when you take it off, it will go down the sides of the filter and down your hand and arm. However, still has to come off. Reposition the oil pan under where the oil filter is. Lefty loosey, righty tighty. 8) Use the brake cleaner to clean the area where the oil filter went. Wipe off with towel. After wiping, some oil will continue to drip. 9) Take some oil and put some in the oil filter, tilt the filter and let it soak up all or most of what you poured in. Also, with your finger, run some oil around the gasket on the oil filter. 10) Put the oil filter back on the vehicle. Remember, this also does not have to be Superman tight, just very snug. The tighter you put it on, it will be that much harder to take it off next time.11) Now, with the oil pan drain plug and oil filter back in place, put the jack underneath the car, jack it up and remove the jack stands, and lower the vehicle down OR lower the car if it is on a lift. 12) Pour in the rest of the quart of oil from the open bottle that you used to pour a little bit of oil in to the filter with and pour in 4 more quarts of oil after that. 13) Pull the dipstick and wipe clean. Put the dipstick back in and pull back out to check the oil level. If a little more oil is needed you should have that extra quart. If needed, put a little more in and recheck.14) Replace oil cap after oil level is correct. 15) Turn on the car and let it idle for about 5 minutes. 16) Recheck the oil level (which there should be no issue with it).

How to change the oil filter

Put the car on a lift or jacks. Since it has low clearnance you will need lower jacks or use a ramp.

Remove the oil cap and the oil filter. You may need a strap wrench if the oil filter is too tight to come off by hand.

Look for trap door under the metal cover underneath the car. Open the trap door and you will have access to the oil pan drain bolt.

Use 17mm socket to remove the drain bolt and catch oil into a basin.

Remove the oil filter from the oil cap housing. YOu will also have to remove a large and small oil ring as well as a washer. The new filter will come with those. The oil rings must go into the groove to prevent oil from leaking. The filter goes on the cap housing. The washer that comes with the oil filter goes with the drain plug. Take off the old washer drain plug and put on the new washer drain plug and drain bolt once all oil has poured out.

Ratchet in drain bolt and close the trap door. Put on oil filter by hand. Put in 7 quarts of 5w-30 oil. Check with the dipstick as you get to the last half quart.

Replace oil cap, start engine, and check for any indications of leaks.

How do I change the oil

there is an oil drain plug (BOLT) under your car on the bottom or side ( edge) or the oil pan. get yourself a catch can like some sort of plastic bucket that will fit. Undo that bolt and let it drain. Undo the oil filler cap under your hood on your motor so that it drains more completely and faster. I reccommend changing your oil filter which usually just unscrews, you may need a strap wrench to help it off, prepare for some spillage. Put new oil filter on, put the oil drain bolt back in ( usually with a new washer, you dont have to but it is recommended) and pour however much oil your car calls for, into the oil filler hole. Get yourself some rags and a funnel to help :)

What are the steps to changing the oil in this

1. As for parts, you will need an engine oil filter that is made for your vehicle, new oil and something to catch the oil in. Depending on the size of your engine and the type of engine it is, you will want to make sure that you have the correct engine oil that is recommended for your vehicle. Most engine oil is either synthetic or not, and most cars do not need to have synthetic oils. Check your owner's manual though to make sure of which you need. There are many options out there for catching the oil, but many stores sell dedicated oil pans that will hold many quarts of used oil. You may also want to invest in a tool that will wrap around your oil filter to allow easier extraction and installation.
2. With your engine heated up - to allow for better flow - jack the vehicle up.
3. Position the oil pan underneath the drain plug. This is a small plug that sticks out from the bottom of the vehicle's oil pan. You will need a ratchet to remove this. Once removed, watch out for the oil that comes out of the bottom.
4. For a faster release of oil, you can also open the oil cap on the top of the engine.
5. After the oil pan has been drained, you can replace the drain plug and go to work removing the old filter. Make sure the oil catch pan is now under where the filter is, as there will be more oil draining from it. Twist the filter to remove and let this oil drain as well.
6. Now start to prep the new filter. This simply means pouring a little bit of new oil into it and spreading some around the top of the filter with your finger so that a better seal is created. Get back under the car, if required, and then put the new filter on. Hand-tighten and then add a little more pressure with an oil filter tool.
7. After that has been done, you can lower the car and measure out the amount of oil that you need. Pour this into the oil reservoir on the top of the engine. Finally, replace the dipstick and check the level of the oil. If all looks good, you are all done. Clean up with some soap or grease cleaner for your hands and put the used oil in a safe place.

Want to change the oil myself,don't know how

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
