For best prevention i would use a fully synthetic motor oil any brand is fine ( I like Castrol gtx,or mobil 1.) 10w-30 in the winter and a 20w-50 in summer.

Oil capacity 2003 cavilier


The 2.2L Ecotec, which takes 5 quarts. It may depend on your engine type so the best way to check for your car is to look in the index of your owner's manual under 'capacities" and the corresponding page will tell you.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located


ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.

Engine Swap


There are several engines that will fit the 2.2l Ecotec, 2.4L high out put motor, and I have actually seen a chevy cavalier that has a 3800 V6 in it if you want to go all out but in most cases sticking with the ecotec motor or the 2.4 High Out Put motor would be best they are two of the best motors for these cars and since the Sunfire is basically the same car as the cavalier almost any thing motor wise is inner change able between cars depending on the motors i own an 2004 chevy cavalier LS sport and a buddy of myn has a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire and both have the 2.2L Ecotec and are both Manual trans and even most of the interior parts are the same except for some of the dash board components hope this helps you out
