how to change oil toro lawn mower model 20438

I'm attempting to change the oil in my Toro model 20438 lawn mower for the first time and would like any and all advice available. Thanks!

Run the engine a couple minutes before beginning to warm the oil so it flows better. Do you have the instruction manual? If not, go onto and get it -- oil change directions are on page 13. It often helps to have somebody hold the oil drain pan when the oil first starts to drain.
