You may find it easier to remove the left front tire, if possible. If not turn the wheel all the way to the right. Remove the inner fender well, there are numerous 7mm bolts holding it on from under the spoiler area and around the front of the tire opening. There is one push style clip at the very top, just pull or lightly pry out. Look inside the opening to the tranny. Just above the axle shaft to the front there is the reverse switch. It is a plastic (white or black) body with a metal socket base, there are 2 wires going to it, remove the connector. Use a deep 19mm or 3/4" socket or a short wrench to remove the switch. Reverse the process.

I have a 98 Chevy cavalier , it has Manuel transmission, it will only go in 3rd and 4th gear, what could be the problem

It could obviously be the tranny is gone, but you would want to make sure you have enough clutch flood and the clutch is fully engaging. I had a leak in my 98 cavalier clutch fluid, and when it got low, it would not fully engage the clutch, simply making it hard to get into gear. Its DOT3 fluid. If so try reversing a little bit and gently tiring to get into gear. I believe 1st and 2nd gear share the same gear selection fork inside the tranny. Drain fluid and look for metal.

My 95 chevy cavalier can only go fowar wen i put it on reverse it wont move wat should i do

Check the transmission fluid level 1st, if that is ok then the transmission has a failed reverse clutch band, to replace this part means a transmission rebuild must be performed.
