Bob, Your Cavalier may not have a dip stick. Transmission fluid is not added or checked like in the old days, there is no fill tube or dipstick. Transmission fluid is added after removing the vent cap (cap normally red) located at the top of transmission by the shift linkage. Do not overfill transmission. There is a fill level plug (may be 12mm hex head) that will have to be removed, plug is located above middle of the pan, to the left of the bell housing, a few inches from the bottom of the housing. With the vehicle at operating temperature on level ground, as soon as trans. fluid starts running from the fluid level/full hole, stop adding fluid and wait for fluid to stop running from hole,reinsert the plug, transmission is full.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

bob, you add fluid through the small dipstick tube. It has the red or orange handle on it, behind the back side of the motor. It is short and hard to spot, but it looks like a regular dipstick tube. Use a very small funnel to add fluid through the tube. Hope this helps, good luck.
