GM Racing/Ecotec Engine Change/Chevy Cobalt/HOT ROD
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 6, 2008 -
Bryan Jimenez advanced to his first final round in nearly two seasons, but he'll have to wait until the first weekend of May to see if he's the eventual winner. Shortly before the Chevy Cobalt driver was to stage in the final round against Kenny Tran, a heavy thunderstorm forced postponement of the championship heat until round two of qualifying at the NOPI Spring Nationals on May 3 in Englishtown, N.J.
Chevy Cobalt Fuel Filter replacement (installation)
This video will show you how to replace the fuel filter on a Chevrolet Cobalt. I noticed that there are great write ups and some pictures on how to do it but no one (that im aware of) has made a video. This is my first YouTube video so I hope its easy to understand and helpful for everyone.

Chevy Cobalt/ALL MOTOR/NOPI/NHRA/Grace Howell/Ecotec
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 6, 2008 - Grace Howell made a splendid debut in the All Motor category today at the NOPI Florida Nationals by driving the Lucas Oil/K & N Filters Chevy Cobalt to a runner-up performance at Moroso Motorsports Park. Howell's 9.97 e.t. at 129.10 mph in round one was the quickest and fastest ever made in the Marty Ladwig-owned racecar.
"I'm happy to get this first race out of the way," Howell said. "There was some pressure wondering how I do -- it's very different to drive compared to the Stock and Super Stock cars I've raced before so I wasn't fully sure what to expect. But now that's all behind us and we can just go and race. The car did everything we could have hoped, and to be runner-up in our first race with Marty (Ladwig) winning in Pro FWD, is an outstanding accomplishment for this race team."
2013 Chevrolet Malibu: All-New Ecotec 2.5L
The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu's new 2.5L engine with direct injection is expected to be one of the quietest and most refined in the segment. It will be available in the new Malibu next summer. The 2.5L development team reduced noise intensity by 40-percent of the Ecotec 2.4L engine, which was already a Ward's 10 Best Engines award winner. It also passed subjective evaluations of what sounds good as the engine climbs through its rpm band. To Malibu's passengers, that is expected to mean a quieter driving experience and a more refined sound as the engine revs to its 7,000-rpm peak. Specifically, the engine's noise frequency signature was targeted, with the aim of pushing radiated noises into a higher frequency range well above 2,000 hertz, which is more pleasing to the ear -- particularly in the high-load operating ranges where engine sound is the most intensive.
