It depends on what engine you have. If it is a 4 cylinder, look at the pass side front of engine underneath. You may have to remove a shield to get to it. If it is a 6 cyl look at the pass side on the rear of the engine under the p/s pump.

If it is a 2200(or 2.2L) The oil filter is on the back of the engine block near the bottom of the block. It is tough to see, just feel around for it. I remove the filter from the top because underneath is the axel and the flex pipe for the exhuast.

It is on the passenger side of the engine block.

I remove the passenger side tire and reach in throught the side to remove the oil filter.

I remove the computer box just above the Power Steering pump filler and just move it out of the way. There are only 2 nuts. One on the shock tower and one on the firewall. You do not have to disconnect the wiring, it has enough slack to move it out of the way. Now you have enough room to get your arm in to reach the filter on the back of the block.

The location that is being given is correct if your 8th vin# is a "4", if it is not you have the newer style paper cartridge filter that is located on the driver side, front of the engine block mid way up.

The oil filter on a 2002 Cavalier is located in the front of the motor. There is a black plastic cap that has a 1 1/4" nut attached to it. You need to remove this plastic cap to get to the paper filter. It does not have a metal canister like most filters. It's an internal filter. To find this black cap look just to the left of the power steering fluid container and down.
