Where is the transmission dipstick for the 2001 chevy cavalier 2.2 liter?


There is no dipstick for the newer model Automatic transmission Cavaliers. There is only a red fill cap on the driver’s side on top of the transmission. The only way to check it is to jack up the car, making sure it level with a jackstand on each side of the car, and remove a small plug from the side of the transmission, underneath the car. It will be small and in an American size. It is either a 3/8" or a 7/16" size plug. Once it is removed, fluid will drain out if it is overfilled. Once there is no more fluid coming out, it is at it's proper level. If there is none coming out, then add more until it comes out and levels off. It has a capacity of about 11 quarts for the 4 speed models. The 3 speed models have about 7 quarts.

The dipstick for the 5 speed manual transmission is located on the back side of the engine. It will have either a white or yellow handle. It holds about 2 quarts of syncro-mesh transmission fluid. It is important that this fluid is used for the manual or problems will occur.

TYPE OF TRANSMISSION FLUID NEEDED FOR 97 CHEVY CAVALIER AND HOW MUCH


You can use Dexron II or Dexron III, but you can also use the improved Dexron VI which replaces both the afore mentioned fluids. Use Dexron VI as it is an improvment. Caution: Do not overfill. Check fluid level according to the instructions in your owner's manual and make sure the car is parked on a level surface or you will get a false reading.

No spark on 1987 chevy cavalier


Crank position sensor would be my guess.
Its located the center, rear engine area, mounted in the block below the ignition coil pack and DIS module.My guess is that's your culprit.

Take your vehicle in immediately. If this many lights are coming on, it could be a problem with the computer. Worse yet, it could mean:
1) your ABS isn't working
2) you could have serious engine problems
3) You could loose your braking

The brake light comes on for two reasons - the e-brake is on, or there is a problem with the braking system. If your e-brake is off, worry.

Drive slowly to a repair shop you trust and get diagnostics run on it. Go from there.

I hope for your sake it's just a small problem.

Good Luck,
Hope this helps 2 Pts Rate Answer
