Default Step by Step on how to change oil of accent

Hey guys, i know this can be in the newbie forum, but um this is for an accent too, so i was wondering if anyone changes their oil on a regular basis themselves, or what would i miss out if i dont bring it to the oil people, like lubing something?

also how to change the oil steps would be fine

thanks

1. jack the front of the car up and place it on jack stands
2. Open the hood and remove the oil cap(to release any pressure)
3. Go under car and remove the oil drain plug
4. let oil drain into pan. Give it about 5 - 10 minutes to completely drain
5. Remove oil filter, making sure that the old O-Ring came off with it.
6. Install new oil filter making sure that it is snug
7. Replace drain plug
8. remove jack stands and lower car back on the ground.
9. Add new oil, checking to make sure you added enough
10. put the oil cap back and you are done

When you are under the car and have the oil drain plug finger loose if the car has been sitting youll be fine but if you drove it watch out that oil will be very hot!!!!!!!!

I usually put my car on ramps to change my oil, a lot safer (I also put jack stands on the frame) than using a jack. If I schedule things right, I take my car to the schools shop where there is a hoist and I can change my oil while sitting in a chair or standing up.

I hate lying on my back on concrete.

If u put in the recommended amount of oil and check it before starting the car it will show high. Because the oil filter is empty.

The tie rod ends, ball joints and driveshafts are sealed, which no lube is necessary.

I do think, if you replace your ball joints, then regular lube is necessary, since they have a zerk fitting. Those which I have replaced, do have zerks.
