    Yeah. I said F*** it when i tried doing my girlfriends oil. Us men are suppose to know what were doing. Well let me tell you, i felt like a real idiot when i was trying to find the oil filter. Instead of replacing it, I just told her that you dont need an oil filter. haha. You are definitely better off going to a shop and having them do it.

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!!

I used to change my oil all the time...easyier...cheaper...faster...yea....not since i got a cobalt. Now i just buy my oil, filter and take it to a shop where i watch them try to find the filter.....heheh funny how i've managed to get so many shops to reduce the price of a change from 19.99 to 10 when i say i brought my own stuff and could they use it instead. F CHANING THAT OIL MYSELF EVER AGAIN. i'll pay 10-20$ to loose the hassle of taking all the **** off the supercharger to get to the filter

Busted oil pan


Oil pickup tube is likely bent as well, replaced that with the pan?
The click is either because the starter was hit as well or the bent tube is blocking engine rotation. That's on the optimistic side, there could be other damage to the engine or transmission causing this if the starter, battery and power connections check out.

How do i change the oil in a 2006 chevy cobalt ?


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!!

Where is the oil filter on a 2006 cobalt


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.

I use 5W30 Mobile 1 synthetic-5 quarts.

The air filter change is a real pain.
Remove driver side tire.
Remove driver side wheel well.
You will see the filter canister in the front of the wheel well.

I had a mechanic do it for me and it took him 1.5 hours. If you plan to do it yourself, be sure you have plenty of time and alot of patience.
