Can you replace an automatic transmission on a 1989 Z24 Chevrolet Cavalier by yourself?

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

If you want to do it yourself, go to this site. It has step by step information on how to change your transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission without a dipstick. http://www.j-body.org/forums/read.php?f=11&i=88582&t=88570#88582 If you are not comfortable with changing your fluid yourself, go to a dealership

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.

A manual transmission on a car is one that you control yourself via a stick shift. An automatic transmission is one that the car controls, based on your speed and incline.

If by standard you mean manual (one you shift yourself), it would be automatic. It is cheper for the car manufacturer to make manual transmission than automatic. However, since automatic cars have become so prominent many manufacturers don't charge extra for an automatic transmission.
