#5 of 14 clutch problem
Jan 12, 2008 (9:41 am)
My 1994 Prizm (93k miles) has been hard to shift, finally the clutch completely stopped releasing.The car is now disabled. From what I've read the problem could be with any of several components of the clutch (master cylinder,leak in hose or slave cylinder,the clutch itself,etc.
Any ideas out there?

#8 of 14 '97 GEO Prism, idle problem
Aug 19, 2008 (8:05 am)
After my GEO prism warms up the engine will stall and die when decelerating and
braking, but never while driving. It has been misdiagnosed by two mechanics, one said the fuel injectors need cleaning and did that and the problem continues. Another said it's the distributor but that was tested and that also failed to eliminate the problem.
At this point I'm at my wits end. I hope there a mechanical or computer genius out there that can help.

Your future looks grim for the tranny. The radiator thing is disturbing as well.

The 97 Prism is a Toyota Corrolla, the Tercel is a step down like the Chev Metro. I doubt the tranny is anything alike.

check the differential oil in the automatics. took three weeks and many states to find a transmission. somehow the oil in the differential gets out. i dont think alot of people realize the differential is a different compartment. drain them from underneath and fill them from the back side. if they go dry it eats them to no repair. mine went from 65mph to 45mph on the interstate with no warning. metal all in the case.. if you get a used transmission take the differential plate off before you buy it. drove 2 hours out of state. the guy said he checked it but only turned the axle.. was full of metal..
#13 of 14 2001 transmission swap

I have a 2001 prizm with a 3 speed automatic transmission . Need to replace it. Anyone now if a four speed is an easy swap or are their issues with the computer, plugs, etc. OR anybody recommend somewhere to find a good rebuilt/new tranny?

I answered my own question. Spoke to a few knowledgeable experts. The 4 speed requires idfferetn compter and wiring harness. Oh well......
