SOURCE: I need to replace the transmission mount on a '94

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.

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.

How difficult is it to replace a distributor in a 1995 geo prism

very simple at any car. remove bolts, and pull it gently. Before that, mark the position with some paint on the engine and distribuitor, to be sure you put it back at the same position.

Where is the water pump on 93 geo prism, small engine

You're right. it could very well be your water pump, but I would suggest replacing your thermostat before trying to tackle replacing your water pump. However, if your thermostat turns out not to be the problem, I have enclosed step-by-step instructions for removal and re-installation of your water pump. Hope this proves to be helpful. Have a nice evening!

Geo Prism Water Pump Removal/Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the engine coolant from the radiator.
  2. Remove all drive belts.
  3. Support the engine using suitable equipment. Place a wooden block between the jack and engine. Remove the right engine mount and insulator.
  4. Remove the No. 3 (upper) and No. 2 (middle) timing belt covers.
  5. If equipped with power steering, raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the front transaxle mount. Lower the vehicle, remove the cooling fan assembly.
  6. Remove the mounting bolt for the dipstick tube; remove the tube and dipstick. Immediately plug the hole in the block to prevent fluid from contaminating the oil.
  7. Remove the electrical connector for the coolant temperature sending unit.
  8. Remove the 2 nuts securing the engine coolant pipe to the cylinder block.
  9. Loosen the hose clamp and remove the coolant inlet pipe from the vehicle.
  10. Loosen the hose clamp and remove the coolant inlet hose from the water pump.
  11. If equipped with power steering, raise the engine and remove the mounting bolts for the water pump. Remove the water pump and O-ring from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Install a NEW O-ring to the vehicle. Install the water pump and torque the retaining bolts EVENLY to 11 ft. lbs.
  2. Lower the engine if necessary, and connect the coolant hose to the water pump. Reconnect the engine coolant inlet pipe to the vehicle and secure to hose with clamp and secure to block with 2 nuts. Tighten the engine coolant inlet pipe nuts to 11 ft. lbs.
  3. Connect the electrical connector for the coolant temperature sending unit.
  4. Install the oil guide tube and torque the retaining bolt to 84 inch lbs. Install the oil level indicator to the guide tube.
  5. Install the radiator fan assembly, if necessary.
  6. If equipped with power steering, raise and safely support the vehicle. Install the front transaxle mount. Torque the through bolt nut to 64 ft. lbs. and 2 mount nuts to 47 ft. lbs.
  7. Lower the vehicle (if necessary) and install the No. 3 (upper) and No. 2 (middle) timing belt covers.
  8. Support the engine using suitable equipment. Install the right engine mount and insulator.
  9. Remove all engine lifting equipment.
  10. Install and adjust all drive belts.
  11. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Fill the cooling system. Start the engine and check for coolant leaks.
