The oil filter is located at the front for the engine on the left side. Here is a video to help you get the job done and a diagrams to show you where below:

I started to change my oil and have run into a problem with getting the oil filter out. I used an oil filter wrench and the filter started to cave in. I then got the hammer and screw driver out and that did not work. The filter will not turn at all. I am at a stand still and I do not know what to do now.

Get the filter wrench and put it on the very base of the filter and use all your might to turn it. You may even be able to put a little extension on the wrench for more leverage!

Tried that also, the filter did not budge and there is not enough room for me to add any extension to it.
