It may be misfiring. Autozone will check it for free if your service engine light is on. Look for oil leakage stains around valve covers. If you have stains your pcv valve may be clogged causing a backup in oil and in turn oil may be leaking onto coil causing a misfire. That is what happened to mine. I thought it was the transmission for months because it feel like a thump when the car would shift in the higher gears.

The oil can be changed like any other car. Meaning jack up the car, remove the oil plug on the oil pan. Let the oil drain out of the engine. Replace the plug, then move to the oil filter. Slowly remove the filter finish draining out the oil in the filter. Filter can hold about a quart of oil. Clean the area before replacing the new filter.

Most European cars use a cartridge type oil filter. It's on the top of the engine, usually near the power steering reservoir.
