Default 1991 Honda Civic DX Oil Filter Change?

Hello. I have a 1991 Honda Civic DX 2 door hatchback with a 1.5 liter engine, could anyone give me detailed instructions on how to change the oil filter, It seems to be in quite a hard spot. Thanks

the oil filter located behind the block near the firewall. usually you can reach and twisted by hand (lefty loosy, righty tighty). if you cant break the oil filter loose, use a oil filter wrench. g/l

the best way to get to your oil filter is when the car is lifted. raise the car on jackstands and slide under the car. when you are right under the car place yourself directly under the motor. if you look behind the motor your oil filter should be visible. it should be a blue filter if you had your service done at honda. if not it should be white or orange. most filters should be hand tightened, but get stuck a bit after normal use. so a oil filter wrench should help. just loosen it a bit and catch the dripping oil with a oil pan/container. once it starts flowing just take it out. good luck.
