Question about Geo Prizm
I'm replacing the transmission in my geo prism I have all the bolts in connecting the engine and transmission and it bolted in the mount towards the top of the car and the starter hooked back up but cannot figure out how to get the cross member back on and am not sure if I even have the bolts that were in it origionally I cannot find anything online that's useful

Supporting the transmission while removing the cross-member is easier. You will have the engine mount holding the whole thing in precise place, while you deal with the crossmember, and the transmission.
Comparing: if you release the engine mount bolts and jack up the drive-train, the whole thing would shift, and you could have trouble when the cross-member fails to go up well enough.
On the other hand, if the cross-member bolts fail to release due to "home-mechanic" syndrome, you have only the first option.

Testimonial: "Many thanks for your input. Installation complete. Was able to raise transmission with a "jig" without releasing motor mounts or removing cross member"

What you do is loosen or remove the cross member first
Then you decide,if using a small air driven cut off wheel to
remove some metal from cross member,will help remove
the trans pan in the future.
