Amount of oil in Chevy Cobalt

I have an 08 Cobalt LT. 2.2L engine.

I have read, and have been told that the cobalt takes 5 qts of oil. However, everytime I check my oil, its above the max line, even after I drain a little bit out. Should I leave the oil as is? Or should I drain some out so its below the max line? Im wondering if I just have a faulty dip stick that catches and smears oil on its way up the tube. Thanks!

Where is the Hazzard flasher found in a 2008 Chevy Cobalt?


My searches indicate that it is not in the fuse box where it should be. The flasher relay is shown under the left side of the dash console, but then I found this.

The Chevy cobalt does not have a flasher relay, the cobalt turn signals are fully solid state and run through the PCM (powertrain control module) in the car, the sound comes from your speaker in the front left.

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.
