    Secure a cartridge (not metal filter) from Advance Auto etc
    Remove the underside plastic shield...uses torque screwdriver
    Filter is inside the black cylinder located on the pasenger side of engine
    You'll need a large size wrentch or perhaps pipe wrentch in a pinch
    When you unscrew the cartridge oil will flow all around so do this when oils is warm (not hot)
    Use 5.8 qts oil
    I use mobil synthetic long lasting since this is such a mess and I do not like all the hassel of jacking, draining etc more often than needed (~5000) but do prefer to be sure it's done right
    Good luck
