Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
Your 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier transmission fluid can be checked by using the dipstick you will see under the hood in the engine compartment.
However,You add fluid directly through the dipstick tube.
General Motors recommends using DEXRON III automatic transmission fluid.

1999 Chevrolet does not have a trans dipstick it has a drian and fill plug.
You need to remove the drain plug with the engine running to see if you have enough fluid. This is donr by removing the lower drain and see if anything runs out with the engine running if not fill on top. There is supposed to be a red cover somewhere underneath the master cylinder. Use a flexible funnel.

Actually, to clarify this problem; In 2005 GM introduced Dexron VI to supercede all previous versions of fluid to use in automatic transmissions. You can continue to use Dexron III, and it will work fine in your older application. However, Dexron VI is backwardly compatible. This newer specification of ATF is supposed to handle heat and shifting better than the older fluids.
Your dipstick/filler tube is located up near the firewall center for most V6 engines. I hope this adds a little more info for you.
