Where is the oil filter


If it`s a 2.2l also known as E -TEC,, it is located on driver`s side under the hood, you may need to remove the black plastic cover on top of engine. You need a 30mm socket to remove oil filter cap. Remember this is a CARTRIDGE FILTER- not your old style spin on/off filter.

Had an oil change about a month ago and about 5 weeks later motor is gone. No oil light came on, no oil leaks


WELL NO OIL LEAKS.WARRANTY MIGHT COVER IT BUT YOU NEED TO SHOW ALL OIL CHANGE RECEIPTS.ALSO YOU HAVE TO USE GM MOTOR OIL LIKE 5W - 30 VALVOLINE USE GM OIL FILTERS.THEY WILL CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU BEEN KEEPING UP WITH SERVICE MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE SCHEDULES.CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD BE AT FULL MARK LINE. THE CHEVY COBALT LS LT LTZ 2.2 ENGINE HOLDS 5.0 QUARTS OF OIL WITH NEW FILTER AND CHEVY COBALT SS SC HOLDS 6.0 QUARTS WITH NEW FILTER.IF OIL LEVEL LOOK OKAY.CHECK ON INTERNET FOR ANY RECALLS OR ANY TROUBLE WITH EARLY OIL PUMP FAILURE.

Where is the oil filter on a 2006 cobalt


Remove oil filler cap and dipstick. Pull up to remove large balck plastic engine cover. Tabs are at rear left and lower front right (facing engine). Large (1-1/16") Black plastic hex cap is cover for oil filter, fron of engine between motor and transfer case. Best to use special tool that fits 3/8" socket extension(about $12 - Search fro Lisle 14700 Wrench) since adjustable wrench doesn't fit well. Replace cartrideg and O-ring, then reinstall in reverse order.

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS ,supercharger maintenance 2.0L five spee


I use 5W30 Mobile 1 synthetic-5 quarts.

The air filter change is a real pain.
Remove driver side tire.
Remove driver side wheel well.
You will see the filter canister in the front of the wheel well.

I had a mechanic do it for me and it took him 1.5 hours. If you plan to do it yourself, be sure you have plenty of time and alot of patience.

Oil filter location


It is an internal fiber filter. It is underneath a screw cap which is located on the drivers side top of the engine.

The oil filter is not located on the bottom of the car in the Eco-tec engines like you may be used to seeing. It is actually in the upper area of the engine.

Open the hood and it will be slightly to the driver side of the intake manifold. (Black plastic looking set of tubes that go into top of engine). It will be an aluminum cylinder with a black plastic cap that has a molded "nut" on the top for removal of the cap. Just unscrew the cap. The filter will be clipped into the cap. Just pull it off and push new filter onto the cap and screw back into housing.

2006 Chev Cobalt oil filter replacement


i have a 2006 chevy cobalt LT..and i just replaced my oil filter today!!! after several hours of looking i finally looked on the front side of the transmission block.to the left just below the air intake system is a hard heat resistant plastic black bolt topper.it is 1 1/4" in size..i bought a 1 1/2" size and a 36mm size socket torque wrench..both didnt work..1 1/2 was way too big, the 36mm was just slightly too big..took them back, replaced for the 1 1/4" inch socket and voila!!! is was rather difficult..you will need an extender and some good torquing to do to pop it..but once you do it will pop fine..oh, and you will need a 1/2" drive socket wrench.but the 1 1/4"inch socket..pop it onto a 1/2" drive socket wrench with the extender and you are good to go!!
