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.

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 gmpartsdirect.com for about 40% off of dealer MSRP. Click the link below to go there.

I changed transmission oil and filter on my 2005 chevy cobalt. i filled with 6.7 quarts of oil. How do I check the level on the transmission.


If you have the owner's manual, it should tell you. Or look on the dipstick, it may say something like "Check warm in Park". Usually, with the car warmed up, park on a level surface, put it in Park with the engine running (set the parking brake, block the wheels) and then check it.
Do not overfill! If it is too full, drain some out, or you will damage the transmission.
I assume you know where your transmission dipstick is? The tube is about 3/4 inch in diameter, the handle is usually near the firewall. (This is not the engine oil dipstick.)

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.

There should be a drain screw on the bottom of the pan, drain the pan it is recommended that you change the filter also, you have to unbolt the pan and lower it to change the filter. bolt the pan back up and fill the transmission back up. i hope that helps you out.
To add the transmission fluid you pull your oil cap remove the cover as if you were going to change the oil filter on the same side as the oil filter or the drivers side their is a cap that has a gear on it look down past the hoses and you will see the black cap you will need a long neck funnel and only use the dex III you will need to find out how much fluid the transmission hold hopes this helps you.

Water leaking from a freeze plug and water in the oil pan in a 283 small block chevy engine


If you have a bad or leaky freeze plug, also known as soft plugs, it needs to be replaced. Your brass plugs are the best, and in some hard to get to places there are rubber plugs that can be adjusted to fix the problem. But if you have oil in the oil pan, assuming no one put water in the engine. You probably overheated the engine enough to acquire a cracked head gasket. Normaly that's the problem, could be a cracked head also, but more than likely a gasket. If you decide to remove the heads and replace the gaskets, good idea to have the heads resurfaced. (recommended)
