Hey Niki==It is possible but a very hard job requiring special jigs to hold the engine and a lift is nice. I wouldn't try it if I were you. You can get a shop manual on your car from the parts store if you care to see what all is required. GoodluckJoe

What would cause a 2000 Chevy Cavalier with an automatic transmission to not change gears very quickly?

Just a guess but your problem may be with the transmission filter. I recently changed mine on a 2001 Cavalier (64,900 miles) and found it runs much cooler and better. The transmission filter and gasket cost about $16.00 plus transmission fluid (4 1/2 quarts on my 3 speed automatic). If you have a socket set you can do this yourself and save about $50 from what a reasonably priced shop will charge.

Yes, you can change your automatic transmission to a Tiptronic or manual transmission in a 2001 Toyota Celica.

How do you put transmission oil in a 1992 Chevy Cavalier?

I assume you are referring to a manual transmission as you said oil. The transmission lube is added on the upper side of the transmission under the car. There you will find a plug. Why are you adding lube? If you wish to change it, I suggest you take it to a garage with a lift and the proper lube equipment. Save yourself the hassel, of messing with this, as you will need a hand pump to add lube. Now, if you are talking about an Automatic Transmission, you add ATF the same place you check it.
