It's quite simple go buy a new oil filter it will say "THIS SIDE OUT" on it on the right hand side of the engine is a round louvered cover held on by three 10mm bolts, on the bottom of the engine is a bolt in the center of the crank case that is the drain.. do not overtighten it when your installing it or you will be posting up "How do I fix a stripped drain plug?" remove the cover on the side gaining access to the filter remove and insert the new filter put the cove back on making sure not to damage any gaskets or O-rings. tighten everything back up and grab a couple of quarts of approved Honda oil I use GN4 10w30 and fill it to the required level. Start it up ride around the yard easy stop and recheck top off if needed...Your done

when you take the filter off there will be a spring behind it so dont lose that and you will need a little less than 2 quarts of oil [go with honda oil]

I don't know about all hondas, but on a 300EX, you are NOT supposed to screw it in. You just put it down in the hole until the threads tip. Don't screw it in. Make sure it is perfectly level, though, or your reading will be off.

agree ..i dont screw mine in when i check the level, also when you change the oil remember when you run it some of the oil will be in the filter so you will need to add a little more as needed

I tried to post the rest of the oil change procedure, but for some reason, i can't get it to work. I uploaded it to Imageshack. I copied the link and tried to insert it as an image in the post and it wouldn't work. It worked the first time. I can see the link in the box, but when I click on save, it just puts my signature on the post. See I can post them as attachments.

Let me try this again. It still wouldn't work. It shows the link to the picture at Imageshack with on each side of it, but it don't show up when I click on save. I can't figure out why it worked the first time I did it and now it won't work.
