How do you check the transmission fluid on a 1993 Chevy Cavalier?
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.
