Put car on ramps. On the lowest point of bottom of the motor, you will see a bolt. . Place drain pan under the bolt, and turn bolt all the way out. Drain all the oil out and re measure what you're putting back in. Place 3 and one half liters back in as the filter holds almost a half a liter. Try not to run the car as you may hurt valve seals air filters etc.Good luck let me know how you make out. Please rate this solution Cheers from Nova Scotia!!
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.
Remove oil filler cap and dipstick. Pull up to remove large balck plastic engine cover. Tabs are at rear left and lower front right (facing engine). Large (1-1/16") Black plastic hex cap is cover for oil filter, fron of engine between motor and transfer case. Best to use special tool that fits 3/8" socket extension(about $12 - Search fro Lisle 14700 Wrench) since adjustable wrench doesn't fit well. Replace cartrideg and O-ring, then reinstall in reverse order.
Hello. What that means is that only 16% of your car's oil life remains before you should get an oil change. This is a better method of knowing when to change the oil than the old fashioned rule of thumb of merely changing the oil every 3,000 miles.
When you do have the oil changes, the counter can be reset back to 100%. If you have your oil changed at a garage, they will reset the counter for you. otherwise look in the owner manual for the instructions on how to reset the counter. regards, Joe
ps = kindly rate my answer as helpful. thanks.
the oil filter is a cartridge style it is located on the front top of the engine driver side behind the radiator i believe it is an 1 1/4" socket (plastic lid be careful) spin this off and the filter is inside
i have a 2006 chevy cobalt LT..and i just replaced my oil filter today!!! after several hours of looking i finally looked on the front side of the transmission block.to the left just below the air intake system is a hard heat resistant plastic black bolt topper.it is 1 1/4" in size..i bought a 1 1/2" size and a 36mm size socket torque wrench..both didnt work..1 1/2 was way too big, the 36mm was just slightly too big..took them back, replaced for the 1 1/4" inch socket and voila!!! is was rather difficult..you will need an extender and some good torquing to do to pop it..but once you do it will pop fine..oh, and you will need a 1/2" drive socket wrench.but the 1 1/4"inch socket..pop it onto a 1/2" drive socket wrench with the extender and you are good to go!!
