Do as Ken99 has said and you can't go wrong. I have a 2005 Cerato [ mechanically the same as your car], if you can get the car up a little off the ground you can remove and replace the filter without having to remove the splash tray under the car, just don't burn yourself on the exhaust , it runs close by the filter. If your can run the car onto some wooden blocks around 3-4 inches thick it gives you enough height to work ok. The amount of oil is 4Litres with filter in metric I usually add 3.5L start the car briefly to fill the filter, wait a little while for things to settle, and then add the rest slowly and keep checking the dipstick as I go to make sure I don't overfill.
TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!!
