First, lift open the hood and find the oil filter and oil pan which is located under the engine and behind the front axle.
Make sure you have the right supplies, which includes a new oil filter, oil pan, 3/4 socket and wrench, a funnel, new oil, and a measuring can. You also may want to throw on an old pair of clothes.
Loosen the oil pan bolt with 3/4 wrench and let the used oil drain into your oil pan.
Take off the old oil filter while the oil is draining so the old oil drains out faster.
Let the oil finish draining out, then put 3/4 bolt back into place and tighten.
Lubracate the O-Ring around the new oil filter so it seals correctly and doesn't leak.
Put the new oil filter in place of the old one, and hand tighten it.
Pour the new oil into the measuring can to get the correct amount needed. Different cars/trucks take different amounts, so know what your car needs.
Use the funnel to pour the new oil into the engine. This makes it easier and doesn't make as much of a mess.
Repeat this process till you have the needed amount of oil for your car/truck.
Check dip stick to make sure you have the correct amount of oil in the engine, which is located on the left side of the engine.
Start your car/truck to help cycle the new oil into the engine and to also make sure there are no leaks.
Dispose of the old oil properly.
