Smelling antifreeze from the coolent A !
Definitely a leak!
Hopefully not a head gasket leak!
Try warming it up without any accessories on until it gets good and hot, pop the hood and look all around!

We think 1998 cavalier is low on transmission fluid because of the way the car is acting. how do we even check the trani fluid it has that red plug under the hood and is hard to get to.


You can fill it from there with the engine off access and remove plug you will need a transmission funnel,start the vehicle and add half quart transmission fluid (dextron III) as you remove the funnel you should see fluid at the far bottom just dont fill it to the top just add some if you over fill it it will spew out so a little at a time cansmo_177.gif

Indicator light on my 1997 chevy cavalier is lit. I don't have an owners manual that show what the trouble light is. It has an arrow pointing down to a pair of horizontal lines


That is your low coolant lamp. You should check your coolant level with the engine cold. Fill it with coolant if it is low, and inspect it, or have it inspected for a leak, or faulty coolant level sensor.

What does the low traffic light mean in a 1998 chevy cavalier?


If your ABS light is on as well, have a shop scan it (it requires a special scanner). If it's just your Trac light without ABS, it is most likely a sensor under the hood at fault. If you are getting a check engine light as well, get the codes read!
This happened to me without an ABS light and it was the upstream O2 sensor. The reason it throws the Trac light is because if any components that the traction control uses (ignition, fuel) are affected by a bad sensor, the PCM shuts down traction.
In fact, when I replaced the O2 sensor, a handful of other little issues resolved as well.
If you do have an ABS light on, it could very well be a wheel speed sensor.
