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 the left just below the air intake system is a hard heat resistant plastic black bolt 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 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!!

SOURCE: My oil pan is cracked and I want to know if I have to remove the engine to change this.

If you can see and get to all of the bolts which hold the oil pan to the bottom of the engine and if it appears obvious that the oil pan can be removed without being blocked by anything else, then you don't have to remove the engine. Come to think of it, I don't think that I have ever seen a car where you had to remove the engine in order to remove the oil pan.

SOURCE: how much will it cost for a mechanic to change oil pan gasket on my 1998 chevy blazer 4wd big v6 engine?

Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.

Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.

SOURCE: how to replace an oil pan gasket on a 1995 chevy

I'm asuming you would like to do it in the truck. To do that you need to remove the inspection cover from the front bottom of the transmission, the starter, the oil filter, the distributor cap ( don'tunplug the wires) and the bolts from the motor mounts. With this done you should be able to jack up the engine with a block under the oil pan and a hydraulic jack. BE CAREFUL,don't force things. When the engine stops lifting find out why before you try to make it go up more.The engine needs to raise about 3-4 inches to get enough clearance. Block it up usually between the motor mounts. If you block it at the harmonic balancer you run a high risk of doing damage to your crank, I know it's easier's your crank.If you need to lift it higher when you are trying to slide the oil pan outthen put it back in place and do it that way. Hope this helps.

How do i change the oil in a 2006 chevy cobalt ?

Put car on ramps. On the lowest point of bottom of the motor, you will see a bolt. . Place drain pan under the bolt, and turn bolt all the way out. Drain all the oil out and re measure what you're putting back in. Place 3 and one half liters back in as the filter holds almost a half a liter. Try not to run the car as you may hurt valve seals air filters etc.Good luck let me know how you make out. Please rate this solution Cheers from Nova Scotia!!

Will the oil pan from a 2.2 l chevy motor fit on a 2.0 l chevy motor?

There are probably lots of used oil pans in the salvage yards. The problem is that the salvage operators will only sell them with a used engine. That is why you are being told that there are none available.

To answer your question:
The part number for a 2002 Cavalier 2.2L OHV oil pan is 88890999.
The part number for a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2.0L oil pan is 55558816.
So, the simple answer is NO, they are NOT interchangeable.

The good news is that you can order a NEW oil pan from for about 40% off of dealer MSRP. Click the link below to go there.

My wife hit a rock and put a good sized hole in the oil pan on our 2006 cobalt. Looking for R & R instructions. Can you help?

You jack your car and drain the oil, start taking off the bolt that hold the oil pan, take it off and scrap the old gasket and clean it very good. Get the new oil pan and put some silicon sealant around the pan and pit it in and start putting the blots. One in each side then put them all in and dont tigh them untill you make sure the gasket is in palce then start torquing them. Put oil in your car and a new filter as well and start the engine for about 5 minutes then shut it off and check for any leaks on the new pan.Good luck and feel free for anu further questions.

How do you take off the oil pan on a 2007 chevy cobalt? I have removed all the bolts that secure the oil pan, but it will not come off.

There is a gasket between the engine and the oil pan. It is probably stuck. You will have to pry it loose with a screwdriver. It may damage the gasket so you might have to get a new one. Make sure you scrape off the old gasket before installing the new one.
