There is no dipstick on a cobalt. There is a black screw on cap on the top of the trans to the right of the motor. If you want to check your fluid level, raise the vehicle but make sure it is level from front to back. On the passenger side of the trans there is a little threaded plug that you unscrew while the car is running in park with the trans hot. If fluid pours out then it is overfilled. If no fluid comes out, then you can slowly add fluid until it starts coming out the plug hole. I had hard shifting in my 2010 cobalt 2LT and it turned out to be a clogged camshaft position actuator which ended up triggering my check engine light. I poured 6 oz of seafoam cleaner into the oil and drove it for 300 miles then changed the oil. No problems since. Hope this helps.

not yet, but I called them. I had one answer that it was a sellanoid so I have to take it back anyway.

There is no dipstick. Power steering on the Cobalt is electric. There is no fluid involved.
