My 06' has been pretty good so far, but I only have 125K Miles on it, so I'll have to wait and see how it goes from here.

I’d be happy to consult with our technical assistance center for you. I just need a little more information: what engine do you have in your HHR and is it stock?

Depends on what engine you have but try this...hope this helps.
You access the oil filter from under the hood. On the front right side of the engine, about half way down, locate a 3 1\2 to 4" round black circular cap with (I think it's 30 or 32mm) "nut" on top. Unscrew the cap.
The filter will come out with the cap. The filter is a cartridge style filter.

Thank you. That worked. By the way, I love my HHR, never had any problems with it. We tow it behind our motor home with all four down. Great little car, good gas mileage 28 around town and 30 on highways.

I'm a loyal G.M. customer myself.
Only 1 car wasn't a G.M. product, my first. Bought it used and promised myself to never buy used again.
#1 - 1973 Dodge Dart Swinger (bought in 1975).
Then all the others where bought new and always had their scheduled maintenance done.
# 2 - 1977 Chevelle Malibu Classic (305 c.i) very good
# 3 - 1983 S-10 Blazer (rwd) 2.8 L very good
# 4 - 1992 GMC Safari 4.3 L repeated transmission problems (on warranty)
# 5 - 1994 S-10 Blazer LT (rwd) 4.3 L 200 hp "Vortec" very good but a bit gaz gusler.
# 6 - 1999 Venture LS very good but destroyed by Hurricane Charlie while vacationing in Florida in 2004
# 7 - 2005 Equinox LT not so good, lots of repairs on warranty, first year of production.
# 8 - 2010 HHR 2LT 2.4 L GREAT. Don't want to brag but it's my best one yet....fun to drive, reliable, economical, good cargo space and problem free so far.

Were you able to find out what your problem was? I have a 2006 HHR doing the same thing. I am at a loss!! Any response would be greatly appreciated!!

The symptoms sound like a power problem, the electronics can be very sensitive to voltage issues, battery,alternater, cable/wire issue.
#1550 of 1602 Problems with 2008 HHR
Feb 27, 2012 (10:26 am)
My problems so far (my car has 72,000 miles on it):
-random stalling on hot days (in GA, there are a LOT of hot days, and this is NOT safe)
-ignition issues, have to 'pump' key to get it to turn
-DOOR lock sticks, have had to pay someone to open my car for me (i now keep one door unlocked constantly), and had the lock removed, cleaned, and replaced the key without success.
-transmission died without warning last night.
-have to take it to a shop to replace the headlight--making a $14 repair jump up to $70.
-both key fobs died after three months. $150 to replace each. I said 'no thank you'.
I'm looking to get another vehicle, NOT a Chevy. I do not love this car; the door handles and dashboard seem cheap, the seats stain incredibly easily, and there's a weird 'pocket' under the backseats where random things accumulate when I put down the seat. Only way to get at this 'pocket' is to shove my arm down the back of the half-open seat.
I'm glad they're discontinuing this model--every time I see other HHRs on the road, I wonder if they're having the same issues I am...from looking through this forum, seems like they are having those issues and many more!
on the plus side, my dog loves riding in the cargo area--it's the perfect size for a greyhound.
