Cannot remove plastic cover on top of enginge on 2007 cobalt

I was advised that the plastic cover will lift off when you remove the add oil cap. Not so on mine. There is something holding it down, on the far left had corner of the cover underneath. I can't figure out what it is or how to release it. Need advise. Thank you.

2010 equinox power steering fluid


The 2010 v6 has a power steering dip stick below the engine cover. Take off the oil cap, grab the plastic engine cover on each side and lift it off (it snaps off and on). Put the oil cap back on so you don\'t lose it. You will see the power steering dipstick at the top of the engine. This only applies to the v6. Mine was loud, and I added a bit of fluid and it was fine.

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.

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.

How do I change oil filter on a 2008 chevy cobalt 2.2L


Unlike most cars the filter is accessible from ontop of the engine bay. you will need to remove the big plastic cover first. Remove the oil cap and just pop off the plastic. You should see a black cap with the top shaped like hexagon in the lower right corner (facing the car). Now you will need a ratchet an extension and a 1 1/4 socket, and preferably a shallow socket.
Keep a rag handy because the filter is going to drip oil as you remove it.
Now for reinstalling just reverse order.

Trans-axle fluid leak


checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

Location of oil filter on a 2007 pontiac g6


Oil filter location for a 2007 Pontiac G6. First open and lift the front hood of car. Its some what right from center on the engine about 9 inches from the radiator. All you will see is a black cap with black plastic nut in the center. You will have to buy a special tool to attach to your socket wrench to remove the cap. Turn it counter clockwise to remove it. Inside is a filter attached to a plastic part and rubber o - ring. The filter is NOT enclosed in a metal casing. Remember how it is positioned as you take it out. Pull off the old filter. Remove the old o - ring. Place new o - ring in place. Place new filter on plastic part and place it back inside the engine. Make sure it is placed in the same way it came out. Screw on plastic cap by hand most of the way. The tighten with special tool and socket wrench clockwise, but not too tight. This is now complete. Now you can drain out the old oil from the oil pan underneath the car. Remove hex screw with long wrench for more leverage. One to 2 hours later place hex screw back in by hand and tighten with wrench. Now add about 4 1/2 quarts of 5W30 oil only. Check oil level on dip stick. Add more oil if necessary. Job complete!!!

G5 oil change


the filter is a cartridge filter. you will need a 1 1/4 inch socket to remove the filter. it is indeed on the left side. you will have to remove the oil filler cap, then remove the cowling/cover (plastic with foam padding-about the size of a regular pillow). the cowling is removed by just lifting straight up on the entire piece of plastic.with the filler cap off and the cowling off, you will find a round piece of plastic with a 1 1/4 inch hexagonal shaped head. use your 1 1/4 inch socket (or large crescent wrench) to remove the oil filter cover. the old cartridge pops off of the round oil filter cover, new one pops on, use new oil on the green gaskets, tighten the oil filter cover with new cartridge in to it's place and the rest of the oil change is the same as most every other american car. a picture of the oil filter at http://www.power-21.com/FramPower21i/Image.aspx?f=images/Fram/CH9018_012406.jpg
