I know that on a '96 the fuel filter is an in-line type near the fuel tank. As Pontiac hasn't really altered much on the Sunfire in over ten years, I'd suggest starting there.
standard More: Judging from what is shown here: http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/1995-to-2005-pontiac-sunfire-6.htm Either transmission type was available.
4 cylinder engine 2.2 or 2.4
10W-30 should be the best type to use.

A 1996 Pontiac Sunfire uses Dexcool coolant. This should only be mixed with distilled water, never tap water. Replace the coolant every 2 years or as needed.
Coolant is all pretty much the same from manufacturer to manufacturer. Check your owner's manual to find out the right mixture for your Sunfire
== == The black cover that holds the oil filter is accessed form on top - under the hood. Down about half way down the engine. See link below for a pic....... it is a cartridge type filter you will have to unscrew a black plug near wehre you fill the oil.
When you go to your parts house to buy it, there will be an application guide hanging in the aisle. Find your car's year and model in the guide and pick up the appropriate filter. If there's not a guide hanging there, just ask the guys at the counter to look it up for you on their computer.
In the early to mid 90's all manufacturers were forced to convert to 134A
The 2002 Acura RSX does not have a fuel filter
The big plug in the bottom of the oil pan contains a cartage type filter.

To find pictures of wiring diagrams for the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire for free check the library. Check in the non-fiction area under automobile repair. Many libraries have repair manuals from various authors. Chilton is a more popular author of this type of manual.
You might have to remove the whole tailight bezel to replace that bulb, all the nuts for it are in the rear of the trunk compartment, the type of bulb is a 194 type.

You need to convert the AC system to R-134a type freon first (retrofit kit). Then you charge it on the low pressure side.
most any brake fluid which is DOT approved should be fine. Be sure to use a new, unopened container.
It is accessed from the top front of the engine. The oil filter is a canister type cartridge, not a spin-on.
I have a 89 pontiac. If it is the same type. The fuel filter should be in a bracket hanging underneath the gas tank near the muffler area. Be very careful removing it because fuel wit come pouring out. Get bucket ready.
The crankshaft sensor is mounted to either side of the front side or the back side of the engine depending on the engine type
It should be perfectly happy with 10W30. Many oil change places are now using 5W30 as their default. My '96 ran just fine with that too.
