1997 Chevy Cavalier Oil Quantity Will Depend On The Oil Filter, If The Car Uses a Metal Oil Filter Located Under The Car, It Will Only Take 4.5 Quarts To fill it, But If It Uses a Paper Filter it will take 5 quarts.

OVERFILLING CAN HURT THE ENGINE, DOING SO CAN CAUSE GASGETS TO FAIL

Alway Check The Oil Dipstick After Filling To Assure You Have Put Appropret Amount in, and Always Start Engine After Filling Oil To Allow The Oil Filter To fill With Oil, Nomaly 10 seconds is best.

put 5 qts in. it wont hurt a thing!! (unless it is too much and gets forced out seals causing leaks Add 3 1/2 quarts, start it, shut it off, wait a few munites and check it, adjust as needed.)

4 and half or 5 quarts will be fine. Put in whatever gets the dipstick to full.

No, I have a 1998 Cavalier and it does not have a cabin filter. You can take off the 3 bolts off the heater blower and remove any leaves or debris.
