Engine is equipped with safety oil shut off need to reset after oil change How?

Glen, I think the oil change light may reset it self after a few hours, but as far as a reset, I am not sure of. The actual oil sensor in the engine may be at fault, you can try cleaning, testing, and reinstall or just replace. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, ro search your self using, Google search your make and model# manual. Good luck .

I'm a woman trying to teach myself how to maintain my own car. I have a 2009 Dodge Journey 3.5 v6. I wanted to know basic instructions on how to change the oil myself? any help pls?

You could try some YouTube videos on similar models.
Its a messy job, and for most people easier to pay someone to do.
You have to remove the drain plug from the oil pan to drain the oil into a pan, then dispose of it safely, and change the filter, then refill the oil pan with new oil.

Does my 2009 kia sorrento 3.3 liter have a timing belt or timing chain and when should it be replaced if at all?

Dont know offhand to be honest ,if it is a timing chain then its running in oil and should ever need changing although the tensioners may need changing after 250,000 miles or so but again this depends how regular the oil is changed i recomend around 5000miles with a oil filter every thrid oil change but opinions vary on this
