Oil specification for 2008 chevrolet cobalt manual transmission
I want to change the trans oil in a new manual trans on my 2008 cobalt, but the owners manual doesn't tell me any specs on the oil, or the viscosity of the oil. I want to use amzoil in the engine, and got the specs for it, but all I get is a GM part no. for the trans, and the capacity of 2 qts. to fill it. Can you help me?

yes u do, the oil in the engine should be changed every 3-5,000 miles depending on what type of driving u do, stop and go is every 3,000, more highway, then every 5,000, the transmission must be serviced with a new fluid and filter every 60,000 miles

The Cobalt transition is sealed and do not have a place to user/owner-refill the oil. The oil should work fine 50,000 miles and then at the 50M inspection the dealer should check it and refill it if necessary or change it.
