It may not have a dipstick. The engineers can be wonderful people. There is a plug that needs to be removed to check it. there is a specific procedure that may be in the owners manual. IF you you check incorrectly, you can end up under filling it as fluid will run out.

A 97 Cavalier (not certain 96 is identical) has a red-handled dipstick at the center back of the engine compartment (next to the throttle body). Check the fluid level with the car parked on a level suface, with the engine idling.

Example...2000 Cavalier. Automatic. Remove Oil level plug beside axle on the right side of trans.(pass side) Add trans oil until oil runs out of plug. Level is now correct.

To add oil, filler is on top of trans(red cap) almost in the center.(unscrew)
