The filter should be on the bottom, backside of the left hand side of the car. Located almost against the firewall, behind the altonator. Thedrain plug is on the bottom backside of the pan toward the drivers side of the car.

What doe a tune up for a 2005 chev cavileir coup concest of

Your typical tune up will consist of changing your spark plug wires, spark plugs, air filter, coil wire, coil pack, oil change, transmission flush, radiator flushed, and breaks check. It would not hurt to have your injectors flushed as well. I hope this helps you out. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

I want to learn how to change the oil in my 2004 Chevy Cavalier so I can save some money doing it myself.

you need at least 5 quarts of 5w30, a oil filter purlator pure 1 pl14536 or similar, a 1 1/4" short socket for filter and a 5/8 socket for the plug... (i use 32 mm and 15mm respectively) note the socket for the filter needs to be very short with an extension, or do what i did and buy a wrench and cut it off to fit. start by loosening the drain plug, then the filter cap to help the oil drain faster. then open the filler cap. once the oil is barely dripping put the new filter in the plastic filter cap and lube up the new o rings on the plastic and filter with some of the 5w30. then install it and reinstall the drain plug. once that is done place minimum 5 quarts of oil in the engine and run the car for 5 min or so. then check the level and add oil as necessary. *mine takes about 5.5 quarts to max line.

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier. what do i need to know/do to change the oil myself

you will need 5qts of 5w-30 oil and an oil filter. Go to an auto parts store and tell them the make model and year of your car and they will give you the right oil filter. Make sure to drain all the oil out then remove the oil filter. When putting the new oil filter in make sure to take some oil and put it on the sear of the oil filter. Screw the oil filter on hand tight and put the drain plug back in. Add oil to your motor, start with a little less then the owners manual says and start the car for a minute then turn off and check the oil level. Add and repeat till the oil level is correct.

Changing Oil '04 GMC Envoy XUV

Guessing that this Truck has the V8???? Slide up underneath. The Drain plug is the Bold Closest to the Front and will be at a Slight Angle. There is one farther back But, This one is the Tranny. The Filter is Right around the Same area as the Drain Plug for the Oil. Just look up and you will see it.

Hi, I have a problem, my friend is doing a oil change onmy 2006 eddie bouer explorer he just call me to ask me if I know where the transmission fluid goes, I have no idea he found the oil change cap but,...

there is no oil fill tube. The correct procedure is to fill the pan through the drain plug. Remove the small inner plug, with the vehicle running fill the pan until ther is a small steady stream coming out of the drain plug.
