Either jack the car up and put it on jack-stands or pull it up on a set of ramps. On the lower front side of the transmission there is a plug. Remove it. If fluid runs out, you are okay. If not, you need to take a syringe or something similar and add fluid until it starts to come back out. It's now full and you re-install the plug.

Can a 1994 GEO PRIZM -- aka Toyota Corolla -- w 5 speed manual transmission be towed 4 wheels down?

IMO the answer is yes, as the vast majority of manual transmission 2wd vehicles can be towed wheels down, but as I am not 100% sure on your Prizm, call your local Toyota or Geo dealer for a definitive answer.IMO the answer is yes, as the vast majority of manual transmission 2wd vehicles can be towed wheels down, but as I am not 100% sure on your Prizm, call your local Toyota or Geo dealer for a definitive answer.

Ther are three different engine configurations used on the 1990 prizm. Check a repair manual such as Haynes. If you plan on keeping the car for a long time a manual would be a good investment.

What all will you need to pull to change your 96 prizm from a automatic to a 5 speed?

Unless you have a donor car that you can remove the necessary parts from this is a bad idea. The cost involved would be prohibitive. Sell this 1996 Prizm and then buy a manual one. There are many good manual transmission Prizm's and it's twin Toyota Corolla's out there. Your A/T equipped Prizm is worth more than the same car with a manual. Going from a A/T to a manual is almost always a bad idea. Going from manual to auto is a much easier conversion.

How do you add manual transmission fluid to a geo prizm?

This must be done from underneath the car. Should be a plug on the side of the transmission that can be removed to check the level. The gear oil is usually 90 weight - thicker than engine oil. Follow manufacturers guidelines for the amount you add. Too much gear oil is just as bad as not enough. Best to have an experienced mechanic do this ... could save you thousands on a rebuild if things go wrong.

Why would oil come out of your speedometer cable on a 1990 geo prizm?

It is possibly sucking out out transmission fluid from the transmission. It could just be a loose connection where it screws into the transmission. There should be some sort of seal or grommet on the end of this that should keep this from happening. Another possiblity is that someone has overfilled the transmission fluid or there is too much pressure build up in the tranny. Just possibities.

Where is the brake fluid reservoir in a 2002 Chevy Prizm if you don't have an owner's manual?

The short answer is that it is in the same place it would be if you do have an owner's manual! The longer answer is that it is under the hood on the firewall, almost directly in front of the steering wheel. To check the brake fluid level, view the marks on the side of the reservoir, which is clear. If needed, brake fluid can be added through the lid on top. Be sure to wipe off the lid and the area surrounding the lid with a clean cloth before removing the lid. This keeps dirt out of the brake fluid.
