nazof is exactly right. Totally disregard emissionwiz and clint_carter. I have the exact same vehicle and have changed the oil and filter myself. The filter is located right in the middle, almost up against the firewall, after you pop the plastic engine cover. You must twist off a plastic cap and then pull the filter (a cartridge type) straight up and out. There are two replacement rubber rings that should come with your replacement filter. One goes on the plastic cap (just above the screw threads) and the other much smaller one goes at the end of a plastic rod that is connected to the cap.

Just push up on the plastic front side. It is held in place by what I call "lock and pops" little metal spikes with ball on the end of them. The oil filter is at the back of the engine (center). Don't forget to use only synthetic 5-20W.

If you have a 4.6l V-8 Borrego, rather than a 3.8l 6-cylinder engine, you will not find the oil filter at the back of the engine. Rather it is under the engine at the front of the car, above the front bumper under plate, near the radiator. It is a cartridge filter so do not expect to find a screw-on disposable filter. You will find a black plastic filter screw-on cover directly in front of the oil cooler.
