If you are referring to the trans dipstick, likely yours does not have one. there is a fill plug on top of the unit and a plug that needs to be removed on the right side (like the fill on a stickshift) you need to remove the side plug and fill from top till fluid runs out of the side hole. (I know...great design improvement) Probably better to just have a shop do that for you!

How do you check the transmission fluid in a 1998 chevy cavalier. there is no dipstick


you are wrong darcblod,in a 98 model chev.cav.the 2.2 engine is an automatic that was not made with a dipstick.it has instead a "check valve" there is a plug on the side ..remove it and pour your tranny fluid into the "fill" hole until the fluid just barely runs out of the "plug hole" ,replace both the fill cap and check valve plug and you'll be fine...it is important that your car is level and at operating temp......fyi some of the newer fords are like that too.

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.

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier. It doesn't have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid level. Is there another way to check this?


There's a fill plug on the right side of the unit that works just like the ones on stickshift transmission...fill on level ground 'till fluid just spills from plug opening.

Wheres the tranny dip stick


If it is an automatic, the end of the dipstick should have a yellow plastic handle which should be located to the right rear of the engine compartment (facing car). If it is a straight drive, there is no dipstick. You will have to find the fill plug and take it out. The gear oil should come up to the fill hole.

Why does my 1991 chevrolet cavalier slams in the diff section when shifting the gear lever from park to drive and or reverse?


check your engine and trans mounts sounds like you have a bad mount allowing motor to shift up pop hood and look at engine while someone puts in gear see if engine comes up or kicks back it should only move slightly
