Warm your vehicle up a few minutes as warm oil flows out better than cold. Get on your garage clothing, grab a pair of rubber gloves to keep the mess off your hands. Place a bucket or something large enough to hold about 5 quarts of old oil under your drain plug which you should be able to see from under the vehicle. Loosen the drain plug with a wrench then by hand as it is almost ready to come off. Watch out, the oil will flow toward the back of the vehicle. Let it drain until it stops dripping, 15 minutes or so. Then loosen the plastic cover plate and remove the oil filter, again place a bucket to catch the oil and let the filter drop in that. Remove the oil fill cap to let the oil out. Replace the oil drain plug and tighten. Then the same with the new oil filter. Put in about 5 quarts of oil, look under vehicle to check for leaks. Start the engine and let it run a few minutes, then check again for leaks. If all is well enjoy the ride and you can rest knowing you did it right. I just changed mine for the first time after going to dealerships and quick oil change places, and I wonder if they really changed the filter. My filter was so beat up rusty scratched up it appeared to be on their for 10,000 miles but was only changed 2,000 miles ago.....scary stuff but if you do it, you know its done right.

Yes, this is an acceptable weight for your Blazer. Do not fall for the 3,000 mile oil change myth. That is a waste of oil and money. Change your oil according to the manufactures recommendations. On your Blazer that is probably 5,000 miles. Use a quality filter such as an AC/Delco, Purolator, or Wix.
4 and 1/2 qts with filter change.
You need to remove the engine and then the oil pan. The oil pump is easily replaced with oil pan removed.
