Few things I do differently. I begin by loosening the oil filter cap so the oil starts to drain into the pan and then remove the drain plug. I use old oil from the filter to lubricate the o-ring. I don't see what you gain by pouring new engine oil to flush out the old oil. Anyways this might be just the thing for someone to start to DIY. For someone that hasn't ever worked on cars even an oil change could be challenging. So good job. :thumbup:
