SOURCE: can't locate fluid eservoir to add trans fluid

Here how to do it: If you see no signs of leaking from the transmission then the level is probably not low, take it to a transmission shop, transmission repair on this car is not for the DYI.

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

SOURCE: My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in

I agree that it is the linkage cable. I had a similar problem with my '03. Mine would start but you could not put it in gear, the (center-console mounted) gear selector moved freely. I forget what I paid for labor but the part is like $55 (as of july 2011)

Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

Ifound where you put transmission fluid in the trans. but i can not find where to or how to check the fluid level it is and auotmatic. 2004 chevy cavalier

There is a small plug (10mm) located in the transmission near where the passenger (right) side drive axle enters the transmission. With the engine warm and at idle, remove the plug and top of the fluid level until the fluid starts to run out the hole.
Not quite user friendly.
Good luck

Did you change the rubber spark plug boots when you put in the new plugs? Do you have a check engine light on? If so, find out the code and this should help you pinpoint the problem.
