First off, determine if changing oil in your
vehicles is something that you really want to do if you have never done
so before. There are some up-front expenses that must be considered to
perform the work safely and you must have a location to perform the work
too. To purchase the tools required and perform only a single oil
change would not be very economical. But, changing oil over the life of
each vehicle will average the cost of the tools so they end up being
So, if you are ready to go the very first step
is gather up the list of the materials listed. Make sure you get the
correct filter and oil for your vehicle. You can normally get this
information from your owners manual, online sources or the local auto
Select a level location to perform your work. Using either
the ramps or a jack, elevate the car to a position that allows you
access to the engine area. Make sure the car is secure by setting the
parking brake and set jack stands in place if you jacked the car up.
Open the hood of the car, locate and remove the dipstick and oil filler
cap. Wipe off any oil on each item and place it to the side.
Move underneath the vehicle and locate the oil drain plug on
the engine oil pan. With your drain pan located directly below the plug,
remove the oil drain plug. If the engine is warm, the oil will be too -
do not change oil on a hot engine, wait until it cools some, but not
cold either. Warm oil will drain better.
The oil will take roughly 5-10 minutes to completely drain,
once it becomes a drip, replace the drain plug and tighten it securely.
Do not overtighten it as you may strip the threads. Now, locate the oil
filter and placing the drain pan beneath it, remove the filter with your
filter wrench. Some oil will start to drain out as you remove the
filter. With the filter out, allow any remaining oil to drain, then wipe
the mount making sure that there is no rubber gasket left in place as
sometimes the gasket will stick to the mount. (new filter has a new
gasket on top of it) Now, lubricate the new filter gasket with a touch
of oil and then spin it onto the mount to hand tight. Using your filter
wrench, give it about a 1/2- 1 turn more.
Back to the top of the engine, pour your fresh oil into the
oil fill and once you have completed that, replace your dipstick. Start
the engine and allow it to idle. Check for any oil leaks by looking
under the engine area, but do not go underneath the car with it running.
Everything should be good and you can now lower the car to the ground.
Your last step is to recycle your used oil and filter. Place
the used oil in your disposal can and also drain as much oil from the
filter as possible. Place the used filter in a plastic grocery bag and
take both back to the auto parts store or your local recycling center
for proper disposal. The normal cost of 5 quarts of oil and an oil
filter runs about $15 which saves you 50%-70% of what a quick change oil
station would charge you. You may wish to also consider using synthetic
oil in the future which will allow you to extend your oil change
intervals and reduce our dependence on fossil oil.
The oil drain plug is located at the bottom of the oil pan and just use a good 5-20 oil doesn't really have to be synthetic I use Kendall oil but you can use like mobil1 or castrol as long as it is 5-20

You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.
You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.
Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill
