Full service

I want to change all my fluids in my car and im hoping someone has a link to the service manual so i can look up what fluids I need to buy.

So far the only thing im sure i'll have to get from the stealership is transmission oil.

09 Cobalt LS XFE 5spd

I put in Royal Purple Max ATF for my 09 XFE, F23, apparently they switched to all automatic transmission fluid after a certain year so when building them they only have to use one kind for everything.

As for the other things I'm not sure, there is a how to I found by searching, I believe it was of a different site though.

Any ATF-4 fluid can go into the tranny, as said above they don't use gear oil after I think 2006 or 2007 for convenience. I'm assuming you don't have your owner's manual so I won't suggest looking there for the fluids but you can probably just type in whatever fluid into the search forum thing and it'll bring you to a helpful thread.

Coolant is Dexcool, Brake fluid is DOT3.

Amsoil atf in my f23. Motor gets amsoil signature 0w30 with their ea filter. Pleased with results so far on 15k change interval. Dexcool for coolant. Dot 4 can be used for brake fluid. Most companies now market brake fluid as dot 3/4 as 3 is becoming obsolete. Higher boiling point, same function.
