The drain plug is under the car, located in the bottom rear of the oil pan. The oil filter is located on the engine, behind the radiator. You replace the filter from the top of the engine compartment. You will see a black cover with a hex top on it. I think it's 1 1/4. Use a shallow socket, extension, and ratchet to take it off. Once off, you can pull the filter element out and install the new one. Do not over tighten the filter cover. Remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty.
The 2.2L engine holds 5 qts of oil, the 2.0L holds 6.3 qts.
