I'd like to save money by learning to change the oil in my car by myself. We live in the Google age but I wanted some detailed and female friendly step by step advice on how to change the oil. I know that I need a 5 quart jug of oil and new oil filter. I just need to know how to get rid of the old oil and filter to replace it with the new one! If anyone can help, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
