SOURCE: trying to locate fuel filter on 06 chevy cobalt

Hello kino26763: You can locate the fuel filter at the rear of the car. You will need to raise the car so you can get under it. Be sure to use safety stands for your protection. The filter will be just in front of the rear axle. Passenger side at the gas tank. Should be a small round cylinder looking can.There should be three fuel lines coming off of the filter.

SOURCE: 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!!!

SOURCE: transmission fluid on 06 equinox

Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

SOURCE: How do I change transmission fluid in 2006 Chevy

jack the car up and remove the trans pan (12 bolts I think), inside you will find the filter replace it, after u finish refill with the exact same amount of fluid (about 3-4 quarts of Dexron 6 ATF) and then recheck hot, don't overfill...

The transmission is sealed. It is intended the fluidis to never need to be checked or changed. The dealer has a probe to check this function.

Transmission dipstick location on a 2009 Chevy


It doesn't have one. To check the fluid you have to pull a plug from the passenger side of the transmission, by the CV shaft. Start the car and pull the plug. If fluid comes out, it is full. If not then add. The fill is the red cap on the top of the transmission.

Where is transmission dipstick Chevy cobalt 2005


according to wiki.answers.com
"Chevy Cobalt has a sealed Automatic Transmission... no dip stick. Probably best to take it in to get service by trans shop if you think it needs changing or re-filling."
Or
"There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly ontop of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car1.gif in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission, With the car running (WARNING: THE CAR MUST REMAIN RUNNING WHILE PLUG IS OUT!!!!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. AGAIN DONT SHUT THE CAR OFF WHILE IT IS RUNNING OR ELSE FLUID WILL POUR OUT!"

HI IM TRYN TO BUY THIS 06 CHEVY COLBALT....HAD MY MECHANIC CHECK IT OUT FROM UNDER THE ENGINE TO BASICALLY THE ENTIRE CALL.IT HAS 72000 MILES ON IT.......ARE CHEVY COBALTS GUD CARS...I NOTICED TO IT DOESNT...


  • Hi, I can help.

  • I think the Cobalt is a decent car. not on my top 20 but defiantly worth owning if the price is right and the engine and transmission look clean and drive right.

  • As for the transmission, there is no dipstick. There is a check plug on the transmission just above the pan. I will list the steps on how to check the transmission. To fill the transmission there is a red or black cap that twists and pull up that is under the hood, on top of the transmission.


  1. Warn your car up.
  2. Make sure you are on a level surface.
  3. Put it in park.
  4. Set the emergency brake and leave the car running.
  5. On the back of the transmission there is a little 10mm bolt.
  6. Remove the bolt.
  7. If fluid comes out then it is full.
  8. If not then fluid is needed.
  9. Add just until it seeps out of the hole and that the proper way to fill that transmission.

I went to start my car today and pushed the clutch in and it went straight to the floor on my 06 chevy cobalt ls. Can you help?


Check the fluid for the clutch. It has a small master cylinder next to the brake master cylinder. It should use brake fluid. If it is low, top it off. If it goes low again, you'll need to investigate where it's leaking from. You could have a leaking master or slave cylinder.
