Having problems with your 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier ?
1997 chev. cavalier z24 Tranmission
\015 I have purchased a 1997 Chev. Cav. z24 4 cyl. I need to know how to check the transmission fluid and how many quarts it takes to fill when you are replacing the transmission.\015\012\015
I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I LOOKED IT UP IN THE HAYNES MANUAL IT SAID YOU HAVE TO JACK THE CAR UP LEVEL, AND THERE IS A PLUG ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANSMITION, YOU TAKE IT OUT IF FLUID COMES OUT THEN YOU ARE GOOD.
To check the transmission fluid shut the car off and open the hood by pulling hood release lever on the drivers side under dash area, then prop the hood up, and look for a red cap dipstick or a dipstick that says trans fluid if its an automatic it'll be Dexron II or Dexron III ( ATF ) Automatic Transmission Fluid. for the fluid specs, capacity check the owners manual that came with the car.
