The oil filter is under the car usually to left of the oil pan.(Look above) If you don't know what it looks like, it is crcular and about 6" long. To do you must drop the oil into a pan.Once that is finished you should move the oil pan under the oil filter and unscrew it using oil filter pliers or a big size of pliers.Then replace and add oil. Actually the filter is located on the top side of the motor. It is a cartridge filter, not a traditional screw-on type filter. If you are looking under the hood, locate the intake manifold (black plastic) to the immediate right of the intake manifold you will see what looks like a cap with a big hex on the top of it. You can pick a socket that matches the hex or you can use a band wrench to take the cap off. the filter will remain locked in the cap until you give it a little tug. the new one just clicks onto the cap. The cobalt has the Ecotec motor, GM started using this motor in 2002 or 2003 in cavaliers and sunfires. it eventually took over for the 2.4L DOHC 4 cyl that can standard in the alero, grand am, and a few others.

GM phased out the in cab air filter in 2004. No filter to change on the 2005 model year. Napa still sells them, but their database of parts is flawed.

The fuel filter is located in the fuel sender assembly, inside the fuel tank. Vehicles with dual tanks, have no fuel filter in the rear tank fuel sender assembly.

The fuel filter is located directly behind the rear axle cross member in the center in front of the fuel tank, very easy to change out.

It is inside of the gas tank, Chevy started putting them in the fuel tank in 2004. You will have to remove the tank to service the filter.
