there were 2 very different 2.2 engines used in this model year. Does yours say ecotec on the top of the engine?
The oil filter in the ecotec engine is a cartridge type located under a plastic cap facing upwards on the side of the engine, just under the intake manifold towards the driver's side. The cap has a 6 sided raised hex and can be turned using a 1 1/4 inch socket. the filter is part #10 in the illustration below.
Teh oil drain plug is on the very bottom of the engine, at the lowest point on the oil pan facing towards the rear of the car.
