Like all cars, with hyda. m/t clutch,
it is a stick right, all cars have clutch, old cars had a/t drain for clutch.
so my answer is for stick clutch M/C drain an fill.
so the cap tells you its DOT-3/4
so bleed it just like brakes, ever do those before.
if not watch any of 100s of youtube videos on that and clutch.
there are 5 ways to do it. (tools vary)
ill show 2man way
drain out 3/4 fluid from res. and fill to top with fresh)
i use a turkey baster, for 1buck.
you press pedal to floor.
person 2 opens bleed valve at the SLAVE>
then closes it as flow stops
person 2 yells, ok , repeat.
and repeats (all)until all old fluid is gone and fresh seen below.
that is it.

    the closest match to this is front brake bleeding on any motorycycle, can be tricky, as bubbles float up hill as you force it down, same with air craft, same , difficulty, so we use reverse pressure bleeders. but the 2man way works, if patient. or if not we use 2 of the 5 methods, (2man, top pressure, bottom pressure, vacuum. or gravity) all this can be learned in brake class. or doing searches, for folks doing just that on youtube.

SOURCE: blower motor location 1990 geo prizm

In my 1992 it is underneath the dash on the passenger's side, but you have to take the whole front panel including the glove box off to access it. When that is done there is a rectangular housing and a more circular housing. On the bottom of the circular housing there are three screws that hold the blower motor up. Remove the screws and it will drop right out.

SOURCE: how to install power steering belt on 97 geo prizm

Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.

SOURCE: 97 geo prizm has fire and fuel wont start

check all your relays with an ohmeter to make sure they all operate. A code would go off usually only if it is an electrical problem. If you are getting fuel and fire, and no codes it is most likely a relay. If you did have codes then I would say sensor. So check those relays

SOURCE: Adjusting the headlights on a '97 Geo Prizm

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

1991 Prizm. When I release clutch in first, why doesn't it go?


1991 Prizm (aka, Corolla) dead clutch (aka SLIPS)
does engine crank and start in gear? in gear?
the first thing to check is the clutch pedal actuation system.
cable on some , and Hydraulic on othere
open hood, see that MC for clutch, is the Reservoir dry?
yes, no?
yes, then the slave or mc is bad or both, the one leaking is bad.
Most cases Hydra clutches can not cause slip. (rare)
its a cable, can if cable frays inside or rust, (big time common)
well all cable clutches need service, if not it fails.
called setting free play in the book, FSM book
I love the above post where he guesses then sets a price.
first is diagnosis prices last and varies all over planet earth
and is useless here. prices. always.
Ill look in Michell's for you.
it's not a cable system,
Mitchells shows, hydra. clutch
so unbolt the slave.(on bell)
start car in gear, does car move. yes /no?
yes, clutch ok , and slave is siezed.
no, then clutch is bad (inside bell housing) $$$$$

i posted both ways, as these era cars run to clutch systems.
that could even change mid year, production.

S= slave
Bell = bell housing
L = clutch lever.
see the 2 bolts?
some Slaves can seize (due to running old fluid full of water)
Dot3 fluid is hydrascopic and needs service every 2 years. min.
26082435-4gmiw4kjhjrck3uewcae1lzo-4-0.jpg we check the MC and all parts related here.
to see if the L lever is stuck to the right above.
never condemn any clutch until these checks are done
or go broke fast. IMO
