I have a 1993 Cavalier in which I finally figured this out and I am assuming that it is similar to the 1994 location. It is not a plug, but a dipstick about 2 inches long which is located on the driver's side near the rear of the transmission. You must get to it from inside the engine compartment. It is the type that has a handle that locks down by pushing it to the right. Just make sure you put it all the way back in when checking the fluid level. The literature I have on it states: "Check both sides of the dipstick and read the lower level. The fluid level must be between the ADD and FULL marks. (Note: Fluid may appear at the bottom of the dipstick even when the fluid level is several pints low.)"
