Trying to change the air filter on 2001 Chevy Cavalier

I bought a new air filter and thought it would be easy since I have changed many air filters in the past, but I can't figure out for sure where the air filter goes on this car. There doesn't appear to be any easily removable cover. Thanks!

Is the engine receiving fuel? Check fuel pump output and fuel line pressure.
Check HT lead and coil connections.
Check spark plug condition.
Check air filter condition.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?

New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2001 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L???

If it has a big black plastic bolt head and cover at front middle of car on engine then remove that cover. To make removal easier take off air filter inlet tube and move the wires close to cover. The filter snaps into cover so you should be able to pull it right off.

While driving my 2003 chevy cavalier the engine will die right before the car comes to a complete stop. Sometimes at happens at low speeds when not giving any gas.

it sounds like a dirty throttle body. Just spray clean with throttle body cleaner. Or it could be a plugged air filter...not getting enough air. Or possible fuel filter needs to be changed.

No oil in oil filter of a 2001 chevy cavalier

Many filters come with an internal check valve inside...chances of getting two that are defective are pretty slim. You are positive you have the right filter on there? Chevy used to have a check valve right in the filter mount pad, have not paid attention to that in a while but if you see a small round orifice with a little metal cover in it, you may want to push gently on it with the back of a ball point pen to free it up.
If the pad is held on by two small screws, you may want to remove the pad and check for gunk buildup inside. If not, try filling the filter with Marvel oil and putting it back on. It may dissolve whatever is blocking the bypass. You don't have to remove any oil, 1/2 qt over will not hurt anything. If it dosen't work you will need to use compressed air to blow through the passages. You have been driving without a filter (it's in bypass mode) for probably a few months already another few days won't hurt anything especially since you have new oil in there.

My truck loses power

In most cases it is the fuel filter. I don't know when it was changed before, but it should be changed at least every 8-10 k miles. Make sure you change the air filter too.
