Changing the oil is pretty easy after a few tries. I've always done it myself. First of all, you need these equipments

-oil filter, check out which one you need at your local Wal-Mart -about 4-5 quarts of engine oil, depends on which one you car needs -a big pan for the dirty oil to drip into -and about an hour of your time -a jack to lift up your car on both sides

Alright, first of all, lift up your car so you can slide under the car. Make sure that the jack is not defective, or that might be your first and last oil change. Get under you car, put like a carpet underneath so you don't get dirty. Next try to find a screw on the bottom of the engine tank. It should be on the side of the tank. Unscrew it, and be prepared to put a pan underneath the tank, because the oil will start dripping out of the tank. After the oils are done dripping out, reach up the side of the engine tank and try to find the oil filter, and unscrew it. After the last drop of oil, put the screw back into the tank, and make sure it's tight. Then, take the new oil filter, put some oil around it first, and screw it in. Next you need to dump about 4-5 quarts into the engine, and you should be ready to go. You need to change your oil at least every 5000 miles. Do this at your own risk, all cars are different, even ones with the same make and model depending on where you are in the world. I will not be responsible for your injury, death, or humiliation, and I can't be sued just because you do not know me. I hope this information is sufficient-it should be or you're very dumb.

Before putting the new oil filter on you you should apply a little oil on the rubber gasket. You will only need to hand tighten the oil filter.
