Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have no idea what STS is.My only guess is it could be Service Transmission Soon if you have an automtratic.If you do have an auto.Run the engine at an idle while the engine is warm.Pull the dip stick with the (usually red) handle.It should say "Transmission" or something on it.Wipe it off(nevermind the level on this pull) and put it ALL the way back in.Take it back out and read the fluid level.It should be a thin red tinted fluid.It should smell funny but not smell burnt.If the level is in the "normal range" as in it is wet either between 2 dots,wet in a crosshatched section like /////////////////// or it wet above the "Add" mark the fluid level is ok.If it is low.Add the apropriate automatic transmission fluid.Usually something like "Dexron/Mercon III" or just ask the local parts store what kind to use in that car.Add the fluid in small amounts with the engine running by using a funnel and pouring it down where the dipstick comes out of the tube.Pour some,check,pour some,check until you reach the FULL mark or are well within the SAFE are on the dipstick.I hope this helps and good luck as this is the only thing I can think of.If this doesn't help you may want to take it to a reputable shop to have the codes ATX (automatic transaxle) checked out.
