Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

All right. To change your oil, there's the engine oil pan on this side, the passenger side. This would be the transmission oil pan. You'd need a special socket to remove this so it's not very confusing. Some cars, these look very similar. You can get them confused. This one is pretty apparent that this is the engine oil pan. So it's on the passenger side. It's got a 14 millimeter bolt. I've got a drain pan handy. Going to break this free, and drain out our oil. I'll let that drain out.

All right, so that should be enough to let it drain out. So I'm going to reinstall the drain plug, andtighten it up. You don't have to go super tight but you want to go snug. It feels good there. Wipe up any excess, that way you can tell if it leaks again.

Oil filter is accessed from the passenger side wheel well. Usually there's a clip in the top holding this plastic shielding. From oil changes in the past the clip's gone missing. No big deal. So you just kind of open it up like that, take the appropriately sized oil filter wrench. Get it on there. Just twist it off. I've got the drain pan ready to catch it. Spin it off the rest of the way. I'll let that drain out. Just want to make sure that the gasket stayed on the old filter, which it did. We don't want to double gasket an oil filter.

That's our new gasket and you can just take a little bit of oil here. Where it's seated is going to have oil on it anyways but you just want to make sure it sits down nice and smooth. So we'll just spin it on and you just do hand tight, tight as you can go. You don't use the wrench on it again. That should be all set.

I'm going to take some brake parts cleaner and clean up the excess oil. If you want you can take a rag and just wipe it down. If you still have the clip, now's the time to put it back in. To add our oil, it's going to be four quarts as recommended by owner's manual. Going to open up the oil fill cap. There it is. It's going to be on there with a little bit of force. Put it right there. We're going to use a funnel and add the appropriate oil, which is a 530 weight. All right. So we added four quarts. Let that oil settle for a minute, then we'll check it on the dipstick. Reinstall the cap so you don't forget to reinstall it. I'll do that now.

Just to double-check it's at the right level, pull the dipstick out, and clean it off. Reinstall it. Is it all the way in? Yes. Pull it back out. And it's right at the fill mark. That should be good though. And the oil change is complete.
