First, jack up car at either front tire in order to get room to loosen oil pan plug. You will find indentation plate clearly marked in car’s vehicle handbook.
Once the car is enough jacked up so that you get under it, slide the oil catch under the vehicle.
Next step is to lay down a piece of cardboard to lay on and loosen the oil pan plug. Be sure in positioning the oil catch properly under the vehicle so the oil does not end up everywhere.
Slowly loosen the plug and oil should start to dribble in a slow steam. You should dribble the oil out of the oil pan into the catch very slowly and carefully.
After you dribble the oil into the catch locate the oil filter. Oil filter looks like a cylinder shape. They are always labeled as “oil filter” on it. Loosen the oil filter.
