Most older gm cars you can use dexron 2 transmission fluid or find in your local parts store a good brand of universal fluid.

How to remove the instrument cluster cover 98 chevy cavalier

The cover-is that like a bezel? Older cars always used screws to hold the bezel in place. On lots of newer, the bezel or cover just has plastic clips that snap into holes or slots. If you see no visible screws, try pulling the cover off, starting at one end. Once the cover is off, you can see the screws that hold the cluster to the instrument panel.

Car will not start

You probably can't.
If the anti-theft module is in the cluster, you would need the correct key chip for the car the cluster came out of.
You might be able to bypass the passkey system by running a wire to the fuel pump relay and other components.
You may need a shop manual to find the circuits.

Hello I have a 2002 Cavalier... The ignition lock will not turn with my key anymore... I removed switch so now I am able to turn the car over using a screw driver... But the anti-theft system won't let...

Yes there is a bypass. Costs about $200.00. You should be able to put the key close enough to the cylinder to get the security to go off. I don't know what you did to get the cylinder out. but there is a chip mounted to the steering column. once the key is close enough to it it will let the car start. If you broke the chip getting the cylinder out then you have some money to put out to get it running.

Hello I race a 1996 cavalier on a dirt track and I have been having some issues that don't seem to bad.the car will run fine for 4 laps depending on how much I get on it then it will just loose power I...

What kind of air box do you have? After racing in dirt for a few laps, is the air filter getting clogged up? I would say that or possibly intaking in hot engine air (cool air atomizes the fuel better). I'd start there... then move on to fuel issues.

1999 deville passkey bypassed with resistor of same value as the key , still no injector pulse, have heard the cluster may be bad , any ideas on how to check ?

The problem is exactly like the one I had with my Buick. The resistor only bypasses the key and lock cylinder, doesn't bypass the PassKey system like many say!
Here is a great write-up to build a full PassKey bypass that will bypass also the TDM. This is what saved my car!

I think its a dead cylinder

It sounds like you have a valve that may have dropped and is hitting the piston. It may be best if you remove the head and see what is going on. You may see the problem before you even get the head off.

You could also do a compression test to see if you have low compression on one or more cylinders.

Please post your progress

You will also need to swap the speedo cluster. thats where the anti theft module is located. After that you may still need to relearn the key switch.I will look at the wiring diagrams and get back to you on the starter circut in side the vehicle. You may have to change some other things.Talk to ya soon. Dan
