    I have an 07 Cobalt LS with the 2.2L engine that was recently totaled. The engine has 120k miles, so I would love to swap it into something else, but I'm unsure as to what it will fit in. I found a PDF listing makes and model years, and their engine compatibilities, but need some second and...

    I'm sure this has been asked 300 times on this website and I have looked around quite a bit but I'm fairly new to modding so please be kind. I am wondering if it is worth me swapping my 2.2L intake manifold to the 2.4l and buying a different exhaust manifold. When I don't plan on changing the...

    ('07 Cobalt LS, vanilla 2.2) Putting the timing chain cover back on. One bolt goes through the cover into the water pump. It looks like an ordinary M8 bolt, spec'd at 18 lb-ft. When I get near (but still definitely below) that, it feels 'stretchy', like it's thinking of breaking. Does...

    ('07 LS, 2.2) What do y'all use? My generic puller doesn't span wide enough to reach the bolt holes in the balancer. And, the 'budget' pullers I see online look a lot like mine. Never mind: I e-mailed Lisle about it. They said "We do not offer a puller for that engine, in most cases those...

    Hello everyone. I've joined to learn more about my car. It's a 2008 Cobalt LS. I have an oil leak from hell. I had it repaired in September. Apparently it was the front seal that needed to be replaced. The leak stopped for about 4 weeks and now its back and worse. :crying:

    I have a 2005 Cobalt 2.2L that is currently burning 1 quart of oil every 850 miles. From what I understand, 1 quart every 2,000 miles is fine. I'm doing over twice that amount. There are no leaks as far as I know. There are no puddles under the car. There has never been any smoke from the...

    So, I am not a car guy. I won't pretend to be. I have a 2010 Chevy Cobalt LS (I think it's LS anyways). It has no get-up-and-go to it whatsoever. My old Mazda 3 and my roommates Scion XB both run better. I'm sure it has something to do with the EcoTech engine. Anyways, on to the real...

    Hey all! This is my first post so I am not sure if it is in the right forum or if anyone will be able to help me. I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt and my check engine light recently came on. I let it go for a few weeks because I was told it was an O2 sensor and not a big deal. I got it checked at...
