Oil Change

How can I change my oil myself safely? any suggestions besides taking it somewhere to get it done, would be great.

If you have the right tools. Do you know where the filter is and is it accessible to you? Remember to drain the old oil hot, and of course have new oil ready to go in. It's important to avoid over filling. You need to know a place to take the old oil for recycling.
