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.
75-90 weight gear oil
Manual transmissions don't require fluid. Yes!!! manual transmissions also requires fluid. Drain plug is located under the transmission. It requires a 15/16 wrench. The fill plug is located on the side of the tranny towards the front of the vehicle.
Many of the newer vehicles do not have a transmission dip-stick. There should be and inspection/fill hole on the side of the transmission. Remove the plug and fill with with the proper fluid untill the fluid is at the bottom of the fill hole.
Remove the plug from the bottom of your 2000 Chevy transmission. Allow the transmission to completely drained out. Return the transmission plug to its original position. Fill the transmission with new fluid.
Any good quality auto transmission fluid will work.
The fluid could be too low to allow the transmission to shift. Depending on where the fluid leak is, the leak could be through a bad solenoid or soaking electrical connections, stopping the transmission from shifting.
Is it manual or automatic ???? Dextron III Mercon = automatic Dextron III Mercon = Manual
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.
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.
what transmission will fit in a 3 speed 1990 geo prizm
just enought to make it say "full" on the dip stick :)
If you're just draining and filling, 2 to 3 quarts are removed draining the trans. Add two, then drive the car and check the level. I
I need to know the same thing but for those who tag it as adding transmission fluid, you're wrong. The automatic has a separate differential with its own fluid.
The only way I know for most autos is to obtain a tall-slender funnel(built for adding trans. fluid) and add the fluid directly to the dipstick tube...BB
700 rpm if you have a manual transmission, 750 rpm if you have an automatic
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.
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.
In my 1995 Prizm, just pop the hood, and the washer fluid tank was to the upper right. Pop the top on it, and fill to 'full' line.
.41 is the gap specified by the Haynes manual for the 1990 Geo Prizm.
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.
Yes, fill it thru the tranny dipstick tube, not the one for the engine oil. If you do that, you've messed up and have to start all over again.
If your Geo Prizm is stuck in park and will not shift, the transmission is locked up. It will need to be serviced.

It is bolted to the firewall behind the transmission.
