1998 chevy prizm ignition problems

Yes, I have looked for the book and no one in town has one. I have the problem now and need to get it fixed for my son who goes to college away from home. Time is the issue here. I thought if someone knew more they could help me.

How do check the automatic transmission fluid in a chevy prizm

On 98 Prizm, just open the hood and pull the transmission dipstick out of the top of the transmission. Wipe the fluid off the dipstick with a rag and then reinsert the dipstick into the transmission.

Pull the dipstick back out and check the fluid level. The dipstick has markings to show you where the low and full points are on the stick.

Good luck.

My 1998 chevy prizm has a squealing noise from the serpentine belt area.

Hello ed.... The serpentine belt or one of the pulleys that it turns is making that annoying sound. Carefully inspect the belt using a flashlight to illuminate any rips or tears, and inspect each of the pulleys looking for grease or heat marks.

Often, the belt has to be replaced and when that is being done, each pulley can be closely examined for wear and tear, even being frozen up. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My horn doesn't work and the airbag light is on

Some Chrysler products have this "clockspring issue" (my Plymouth Voyager did) and it can cause those symptoms. I did an online search for recalls on the 1998 Prizm and came up with nothing mentioning a clockspring, so that is probably not be related to your car. I can think of a couple of possibilities: 1) You have two separate problems - you had an air bag issue, and now your horn died (you could try replacing your horn to see if that problem goes away).
2) You have a problem that is on a circuit that is connected to the same circuit card in the car's computer that controls the air bag and the horn, and because they're all on the same "circuit" your seeing problems in these other systems.
I would suggest doing electrical checks (fuses, wiring, connections, etc. - be careful around the airbag and it's circuitry (you might want a technician to do this).
