Crawl directly under the front bumper and look up. You'll see the front exhaust manifold coming down, and you should see the oil filter right over your head. When you take the oil filter off, wrap the manifold with an old towel, because invariably, oil will get all over the manifold and will smoke after you start the car, no matter how well you wipe it off....
