Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

First check the clutch master cylinder to see if it's low on fluid, if it is, use dot 3 brake fluid to fill it, (trust me it's brake fluid, I"ve been working on cars for 51 years.) It's mounted on the firewall right at the clutch.
Check for leaks from the master cylinder to the slave valve ( which you have to get under the car to do so). If the master cylinder was empty, you'll need to bleed the system after filling it. On the valve there is a bleeder screw, loosen it, catch the fluid in a jar till there is no more air bubbles, tighten screw up.
If you still have the same problem, then there is either a slave valve problem,or clutch and/or pressure plate problem. It's cheaper to change the slave valve first, then take it from there providing the valve is external and not internal.

SOURCE: 97 Chevy cavalier 2.2l 5 speed. Can't figure out

Best suggestion is go to your local GM parts department and as them for a print up.
If they are not sure about giving you one tell him you need some parts just have to be able to get it
apart and figure out which parts it is exactly you need.
A good partsman will even help you out.
Cheers

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

3rd gear stuck


It could be the cable binding up inside the sleeve or stuck detents inside the transmission. Try to find the cables under the hood, disconnect it from the transmission then try to move the shifter in the direction it was stuck before (side to side or up and down).
