i took my ss/sc in for an oil change, because they had to look at the pass door anyway.
When I go my bill back, my SS took 7 litres of syn. oil.
I stopped the service guy and said "what the f****"
He told me the engines take 5 and the sc takes 2

OMG What BS!
The SC DOES use a special synthetic oil BUT it's NOT engine oil.(or changed during regular oil change intervals)
The 2006 Cobalt Owners manual NOW correctly shows 6 qts (5.7L) ! It actually takes a "smidge" more (.25-.3qt) to read FULL on the dipstick so be prepared to get billed for 7qts unless you keep a "heel" around yourself to top it up with!

So how often does the 2006 owner manual say the s/c oil needs to be changed?

There's no "regular scheduled maintenence" listed in the owners manual for ANY GM car using the Eaton chargers. (for the sc specifically) It's been a point of contention for years, as they can go low-level due to leaks (or especially if boosted up above factory boost levels) So if you are using the PSI-FI kit or racing a lot, you should probably top it up "just" to the level of the plug every 5K or so. Your dealer wont do it!
You can buy this oil from your dealer or places like ZZ

Do not use 7 qts of oil that is wayyy too much... The 2005 Owners Manual says 5qts with the oil filter.... Obviously the oil filter soaks up some oil causing 5qts not to be enough oil. I used 6qts in my SS..... Where do u check the oil of the supercharger?
