It maens that a trouble codehas been set. It could be very minor, but check it out. Some auto zone stores will pull your codes for free. Your vehicle has the OBD II diagnostic system so in any case you will need to have the code extracted to find out the problem. Good luck.

No big deal. Any dealer must service the vehicle.

The 2002 Chevy Cavalier has a sealed transmission. On the front of the transmission there is a 11mm bolt that sticks out from the side. Loosen it, if ATF comes out, it's full, if not, take that cap back off and add some more until it comes out of the check plug (it's very easy to miss! look carefully, driver side, 11mm bolt protruding from side)

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

The Service Vehicle or Maintenance Required light is there to remind you to do scheduled service on time. When the light comes on look in your owner's manual to see what service is due. Normally this means change the oil/filter. This is not the same as the Check Engine light which means there is a problem with the emission's system.
