#109 of 138 Socket Wrench for Ecotec Engines
Dec 08, 2007 (7:20 pm)
For do-it-yourselfers, the GM Ecotec engine requires a low-profile 1 1/4 inch socket to remove the plastic cap on top of the built-in oil filter. This tool is not easy to find.
However, Amazon.com is presently selling the "Lisle 14700 Oil Filter Wrench for GM 2.2L" for $8.94 --- shipping is free if you buy something else that makes your order total over $25 (the something else can be anything you were probably going to buy anyway --- such as say a computer printer ink cartridge.)

I have a 2007 Cobalt. I do my own oil changes. Are there fittings that need to be Lubricated, and if so, how often? Thanks for any help.

There's no grease fittings Mike. I like to use silicone spray on the door seals and white lithium on hinges, etc, that's about it.
#112 of 138 Sunroof problems
Dec 18, 2007 (7:37 pm)
I have had nothing but problems so far with the sunroof on my 07 Cobalt LT. I have only had it since the end of June, and so far have had to take it in for an adjustment because it was leaking air. Now it rattles so much I can hardly stand it. I am just wondering what it will take to have it fixed properly. I love the car and have had no other problems aside from this. Has anyone else had any issues with their sunroof?

I'd just try another dealer service dept. You'll eventually get a Mr. Good Wrench that can fix it.

Does anyone hear a noise coming from the engine when it is cold outside? It disappears when it is warm outside or when the engine warms up.

Have you ever determined where the noise came from, or have you ignored it?

No, I've never really dug into it. What noise are you hearing?

The Walmart Superstores in Metairie and Hammond Louisiana don't carry the air filter (FRAM number CA-9969). Do they stock it in the area that you live?
