#110 of 159 CHEVY HHR OIL & OIL FILTER CHANGE
Jul 10, 2006 (7:34 am)
from what i have read the oil filter on a 2006 chevy hhr is located on the top of the engine to the right of center as you are looking down on the engine. supposedly it is under a black cap with a large hex nut.
my queston is i have also read that you do not have to crawl underneath the car to change the oil but if that is the case where do you drain the oil from? i would suspect you still have to get underneath the car to drain the oil from the oil pan.

#115 of 159 Re: HHR Check Chg Sys [lorie1]
Jul 18, 2006 (9:47 pm)
Today I got the "Check Chg Sys" light, but this was after a horribly loud bang noise, some hissing, grey smoke, and a burning smell coming from under the hood as I pulled to a stop. Had my 3 month old HHR towed to Chevy and learned that the AC compressor had locked up and snapped the drive-train belt which ripped up a hose as it snapped. Mine is in the shop and will likely be there for "at least a week" while they try to locate a compressor.
I was told the "Check Chg Sys" light came on because the belt that snapped also controls the alternator and it was not working as a result.
Needless to say, I'm picking up a complimentary loaner car in the morning.
Honestly, I love this car so much that I don't really care that it's had this problem. I am confident that once I get it repaired it will work fine after that. Hopefully, the new compressor will solve the loud compressor whine that it had from day one (and that so many other HHRs seem to have).
Good luck with your HHR! These are great little cars!

#118 of 159 PROBLEMS with my HHR
Jul 20, 2006 (9:40 pm)
My husband installed and Airaid Intake into our HHR. When he went to turn it on with the remote and then turned it on manually it shut off and made a piercing sound. He tried to put the stock one back and the car still would not start. Is there sort of a reset button that will make the car start again? Please Help . Thank you.

That doesn't sound good. I haven't heard of anyone else having this happen, but just a thought, try disconnecting negative battery cable then unplug and plug back in MAF connection and ensure its tight then re-connect battery.
