The engine oil filter is located on the back of the engine, almost directly above the drain plug.

Move the oil drain pan so that it is underneath the oil filter.

Unscrew the oil filter by turning it counterclockwise until it comes free of the threads on the engine. Remove the filter with the open end facing up (it still has oil in it), and then place it face down into the oil drain pan.

If the oil filter is too tight to remove by hand, use an oil filter wrench to loosen it about 3/4 of a turn.
