On the dash the indicator light looks like a square box that looks like a radiator with a wavy line that looks like water and has an arrow pointing down telling you the radiator water is down. If the coolant reservoir is full, the float is stuck. Simply remove the 10mm screw that holds it down, lift it up with hoses attached and shake it until the light goes off. OR, you can check the float by getting a small wire, unplugging the float wire harness from the coolant reservoir and putting both ends of the little wire in the wire harness plug. If the light goes out... shake the coolant is stuck.

On a 1995 Chevy Cavalier what is a warning light that comes on and off which has an arrow pointing down over some water or fluid level?

It is the radiator warning light. Usually it indicates low radiator fluid level. I have had this come on when I have had some minor radiator leaks leading to radiator coolant level going down.

The transmission fluid cooled by routing it through the radiator. The fluid probably is a milky color because the radiator had failed internally allowing the coolant and transmission fluid to mix. Check the coolant and if looks milky change the radiator, coolant, and transmission fluid.

Coolant is added to the overflow bottle instead of the radiator. The overflow bottle will allow fluid to fill over into the radiator.
