How do I change the oil in my car?
Raise and support the front of the vehicle. Using a drain pan under the engine remove the drain plug and drain the oil. While the oil is draining from the top remove the oil filter housing top cover using the correct socket and extension. Remove the oil filter, install new filter and replace the O-ring on the cover. Lightly lube O-ring and install cover till it is snug. Do not over tighten the plastic housing cap. Reinstall the oil drain plug using a new seal or plug. Refill with new oil. Follow the specifications on how much and type of oil to use. You can read this article for more detailed instructions. Also, a certified mobile mechanic from YourMechanic can provide this service at your home or office.
