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.

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.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

1999 Ford Taurus GL Wagon 3.0 V6 178K - Two issues. 1 - oil pan - slight leak due to worn oil pan gasket, probably cork. Worn rusted spot on the bottom of the pan. I have a replacement pan from a salvage...


yes the exhaust has to come down. 6 or 7 bolts no big deal.Didnt your mechanic tell you that? why isnt he replacing the pan for you?Why would you buy a pan from a salvage yard, they are cheap from aftermarket sources, and if it leaks when you are done, tough luck.. turning the ck engine light is not solving anything. your trans has a problem and the sooner its fixed, the less it may cost you.

Car won't start, oil all ran out because oil pan had a hole in it


Some GM products have the fuel pump wiring run through the oil pressure switch so that if you lose oil pressure,it kills the fuel pump to prevent engine damage.You may have to prime the oil system to get it to run.Hope this helps you.Good luck,

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.
