Park the car on a level surface, let the engine warm up, Locate the engine-oil pan under the car, and remove the drain-plug. Put a container under the oil-pan to collect the old oil. Remove the oil-filler cap on top of engine head-cover. Remove the oil-filter by the engine block. You could grab it with one hand and turn counter-clockwise. While waiting all oil to drain out, smear some new engine oil on the new oil-filter 'o'-ring, and screw it back in place. Tighten 3/4 turn after the o-ring hits the engine surface.
Clean the drain-plug with a clean rag and tighten back in place-not over-tighten it!. Put back about 3-quarts of new engine oil through the oil-filler cap, and hand tighten the cap. Start the engine and look for leaks. After a few hours later, check the oil level. You are done!

How often should i change the oil in my 2005 nissan maxima sl?

Typically you should change the oil and filter in your car every 10,000 klm, depending on the terrain you are driving in, example: gravel or dusty roads you should change your oil + filter, and clean out your air filter every 5,000klm.
