If your car has a tensioner pulley it can be moved to release the tension on the belt for removal. Make note of the routing of the belt before removing it. This will make installing the replacement belt much easier. If you do not have a tensioner pulley one of your accessory motor/pumps (most likely your alternator) can be moved in order to release the tension on the belt.

Most tensioner pulleys have an hole the exact size of a ratchet drive on the tensioner arm. This allows you to put a standard ratchet (without any socket attached to it) into that hole and use the leverage of the ratchet to release the tension.

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.

in the fuse box under the hood. it will be marked.

This question is very wide. But, I would suspect the speed sensor.

The third generation of Chevy Cavaliers was from 1995-2005. So, you would think they would be compatible. However, Chevy gave the Cavalier a face lift in 2000. You can see more pictures and find more information here:
