I assume you mean engine oil.
The dip stick should be inserted as far as it goes in the tube, check oil with engine at normal operating temp.

Where is the oil dip stick located on 2002 cavalier 4 cyl

If you can't see separate oil dipstick (usually has an yellow plastic handle), then your oil level dipstick is connected to oil filler cap. When you unscrew the oil cap you'll be able to see the dipstick and level meter.

I need to add transmission fluid,but I can't check.

Theres no dipstick on those models. Theres a little screw on the left side of the transmission, unscrew and fill it from the top (you will see a red filler cap on top of transmission) when oil starts to leak through hole, put back the screw and your done.
