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.

SOURCE: 2008 Chevy Cobalt, just changed the oil last week

There are a couple of options for clearing the light depending on the features you have on your Cobalt.
If you have a DIC (driver information center) located in the bottom center of your instrument panel cluster or speedometer area, you should have a mode and set button to the left of the steering column. You can use the mode button to scroll through the options until you find the "oil life" percentage the us the set button, push and hold until you see the 100% displayed.

If you do not have the DIC, you can turn the ignition key to the "run" position ( do not start the car) and push the accelerator pedal to the floor and back 3 times in a row then turn the key off. That should clear the light for you.
Good luck and let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: I changed transmission oil and filter on my 2005

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.)

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.
