where is located the oil pressure switch for 94 geo prizm
I would recommend 5w-30
The oil capacity on a 1996 Geo Prizm is approximately 5 quarts. The recommended oil type is 10 W 30.
Every 5.000 miles
May have to change oil.

I would try and use 5W40 since it has lower viscocity and should reduce ware/tear/gasoline consumption, or so they say
If your oil level is good, then it's either an oil sender going bad, or an oil pump going bad.
