2009 Cobalt LT Base Model "Oil Change how to??" WTF

Hey whats up guys,

i'm on here trying to figure out where in the world is the oil filter on these cars?? usually there either on the side of the block or above you once you get under the car...i can't find it wtf. Its my wife's car and i'm trying to look for it on here but can't find a thread for a base model 2009 Cobalt 2.2 LT "NON TC/SC" how to guide oil change. And i need to figure out what size socket, extension, ratchet etc...wtf found where the drain plugs at but can't find the oil filter i bought the oil filter and these babies are small as f***!!! haha idk i need some feedbacks cuz this car is really getting on my nerves.

^^^ yep. its a cartrage type oil filter, so its not what your looking for. I believe the socket size is 1 1/4.

oh and and just an fyi, you can follow the sc oil change tutorial, just put in less oil and is easier due to no supercharger in your way.

Make sure to remove all that god-aweful black plastic, take a look below the intake manifold and voila, black cap about 2-1/2inch diameter (roughly) with a 1-1/4" hex shape for a socket.

Trust me, I was surprised to find this myself, all my old cars were the canister style too. Gotta love how the cartridge filter cost more too!

It's actually really easy. Just get a 10" extension and whatever size socket it is (I believe 1 1/4", but not positive) and twist it off. You'd have to be a megadipshit to **** it up.

I find the WORST thing about changing the filter is trying to not let the filter touch anything and get oil everywhere. I loosen the cap, pull up halfway, put a rag or shop towel on it and lift and hope nothing gets oil on it lol.

It's an art, like removing the drain plug without getting oil on your hands or dropping the plug into the drain pan.
