    Time to get a Haynes or Chilton, my friend. it'll help lots. Seriously, the
    ION has an ecotec engine. Raise the hood, look at the front to the car near
    the center, see that odd looking black cap near the yellow oil dipstick?
    That's the oil filter location. IONS have the oil filter built in the engine
    housing and use a special (but inexpensive) paper cartridge filter) that
    drops in that place. You will need a special socket (about $4. at an auto
    parts store) to get it off. Inside is a paper cartridge (about $7 to $9. )
    sitting upright . Remove it, lube the new one, lube the cap top, drop it in,
    gently screw the plastic top back on (not too tight), reset the oil change
    indicator, done. Cheers.
