Best Answer

On a 97 2.2 Cavalier the filler tube and dipstick are one and the same it's located towards the firewall on the driverside with a light look for a switch located on top of the transmission next to it there should be a little white flip knob it may be dirty and looks like another electrical plugin but when you flip it ,it will come loose ,once you have completely drained the fluid through the lower drain plug it takes 2 quarts of synchromesh fluid to fill hope this is helpfull

Following this I looked for the dipstick/filler tube from the top but only was able to see it when I jacked it up and got under the car!

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier?

the above answer that a manual transmission has no dipstick may not be entirely accurate. many manual transmissions (including that in my 1993 cavalier VL 5sp.) do have a dipstick for checking the manual transmission fluid. jack the car up and check the rear end of the transmission, just below the level of the CV axles. look for a plastic cap with an "L" shape to it hanging over the back end of a plateau on the transmission casing. that will be the fill cap for your manual transmission, and should have a small dipstick attached to the end of it for measuring the amount of fluid in the transaxle. it is true that some transmissions are completely sealed and will not have this plug.
