It should be in the owners manuyal. If you don't have one, try MOTORLIT.COM

I have a 2002 Cavalier w/ the 2.2 and there is no way to check the trans fluid. There is a cap on the trans that screws of but no dip stick. When the trans starts feeling like it's not shifting the way it should, I put in a half quart and it seems to work.

You can check the fluid in your 1995 Chevy Cavalier transmission with the transmission dipstick. The transmission dipstick will be on the left-hand side of the transmission and have a bright yellow handle.

The Transmission Fluid Check bolt is in the front right part of the Transmission Pan. This is in regards to a 1998 Chevy Cavalier (since I have one myself) and may not be correct for any other year. This bolt is just to check the fluid level is correct and will not drain the entire Transmission fluid reservoir, you must remove the pan to remove the transmission fluid.

you change the manual transmission fluid in a '99 cavalier simply by removing the transmission drain plug and allowing all the fluid to drain then replace the plug and refill with Syncromesh transmission fluid(that is the fluid recommended by Chevy for use in your transmission) It should take 2 quarts.

go to the Chevrolet dealer and buy only syncromesh transmission fluid. do not add anything else it will ruin your transmission.

You pour it in a funnel connected to the check fluid tube. You will need to get a transmission fluid funnel.

For a Cavalier, you have to turn her on for a few minutes to warm up the fluid. Then use the dip-stick on the transmission fluid input. May I add that it takes 10 miles of driving to get the transmission up to operating temperture. Check the fluid level accordint to instructions in the owners manual. Sometimes this is hot in park, cold in park, depends on the vehicle. Make sure the vehicle is sitting on a level surface. Do not overfill as this can damage seals.

There is a tranny dipstick that is not visible from the top. If you look under the car there is a dipstick near the upper control arm.

Check the dipstick, it will tell what fluid to use in that automatic transmission.

200 Chevy Malibu has a sealed system, so it does not have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid. If there are issues, one has to check the fluid while the car is running.

AnswerNormally on GM vehicles you check the fluid with the transmission fluid warm, parked on a level surface, engine running, transmission in park. According to the manufacturer, there are also some GM vehicles that have a sealed for life transmission. On these you cannot check the level. Your owners manual will spell all this out for you. If it does have a dipstick, look on the stick for directions. All transmissions require maintenance. On a Cavalier that is supposed to be sealed for life, you can still check and add transmission fluid.2003 to 2005 Cavalier transmission fluid level/filling.With the vehicle running, you remove a bolt located on the transmission. It is on the passenger side, where the CV joint connects to the transmission. It is also about 3 inches above the transmission oil pan. You can't miss it, looks like it has no reason to be there.You add Transmission fluid until it starts dripping from the hole missing the bolt. Place the bolt back into place. Your transmission is now filled to level.Don't forget, DO NOT ADD CHEAP transmission fluid to this vehicle. It is very delicate and cheap fluid will make the transmission slip. Add ONLY Dexron-Mercon or higher quality transmission fluid.

check your transmission fluid or it may be something electrical if your cavalier transmission is run by electronics. If not it may be a sun gear inside the transmission so you may need to get the transmission rebuilt.
