Question about 2000 Chevrolet Prizm
Is there a few possibilities for a Low mileage per gallon on any car.
But I will mention the more Importants.
The Spark plugs.
Depend on the Mileage on your car, Normally For a Prizm.
The spark plug should be changed every 30,000 Miles.
With Factory Dippon Denso ( ND) or NGK. Both are factory replacement.
Check for any Vaccum leak on the Intake Manifold and The Big Rubber hose from the Throttle Body
To the Air filter.. Or any restriction on the Big rubber hose.
Is very Important to Have changed the Oil every 3,000 miles.
Incredible But Old oil made any car to have low mileage per gallon.
Check the condition of the Transmission Fluid .
Is nessesary to change the first time at 60,000, and after Every 20,000 or 30,000 miles.
To old or burn Transmission fluid made the car run on more RPM to get power.
Compare with new oil ,
Ok. is there a few more things but check this first and let me know.
I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya.
