How do you change the oil filter on a 1997 cavalier?
Drain the oil. The filter is on the side of the engine near the firewall. Unscrew it, and screw on a new filter. Refill the engine with new oil.
Answer its on the back of the engine in a very tight spot. When that car is raised on ramps or with hydraulic jack one can see it. To access the filter in one heck of a job and I haven't found one oil filter wrench that can easily open the filter. So good luck if you are planning to change oil and filter by yourself.
