Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
I believe that one does not have a dipstick. You need to check the fluid by removing the fill plug located under the car on the passenger side of the transmission between the transmission pan and the oil pan. It will be a small brass colored plug.
The fill plug is on top of the transmission about in the center near where the transmission bolts to the engine. It will be red and look like a small oil cap.
The vehicle needs to be level and running in order to check the fluid level. The exhaust pipe is right there also so you'll have to be careful not to burn yourself while you are checking.. If you have the front jacked up and not the rear the level will be off.
The vehicle needs to be running before you pull the level plug on the underside of the transmission.
Once the vehicle is level, running, and up to temp pull the plug. make sure you have a drain pain under the car to catch any fluid that may come out. If a little fluid comes out than it is full. If no fluid comes out you'll have to add some through the fill plug on top of the transmission. Remove the fill cap and add fluid until it starts to come out of the hole. Reinstall the plug. Your good to go!
