This is something you should get the haynes auto manual for. its 20 bucks and available at almost all auto parts stores. i bought mine at autozone. this thing has saved me a lot of time and money. the brief overview on an oil change is to run the car for a little that way it loosens up all the gunk that may be at the bottom of the engine you then jack up the car (and please make sure you use jack stands, cant stress that enough) and using a socket wrench and the appropriate socket you open up a bolt on the bottom of the engine and it flows into a drip pan that you already have under the car.

with the oil change you also need to change the filter which requires more instruction.

my advice to you.

Spend the money and get the book, it'll save you from a major headache.

also idk about yours but mine takes 5W-30 about 5 quarts worth.

It may be cheaper to just take it somewhere who charges 20 bucks for the oil change. shop around. otherwise GET THE BOOK.
