Question about 1990 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Geo Prizm w/ auto trans. Is it suppose to shift more than two times? And it will only shift into second if i manully shift it. The trans. has to warm up before it will even shift into second. Ialso put 16.2 oz. of High Mile Trans-X in it. Also, is there another motor and trans. will fit it other than a Geo Storm or a Geo Tracker? Thank You, Renea

The car is almost23 yr's old and may have never had the tranny flouid and filter changed. this is where i would start befor replacing tranny. This will cost you around $75 but may save you $1500 on a rebuilt tranny. best of luck to you.

My 1990 geo prizm won't start and there's no interior lights what can be the problem


hello ,
wont crank or cranks fast but wont start.? (2 different answers)
you must tell the helper all things that work or dont work
that is how electrics function, by branches .
1: head lights work high and low beams. ( dim or dead?)
2; heater fan work on high?
3: radio.
4: cluster glows those warning lamps as all do key on (y/n)
5;cranks
6: interior lamps dead, my guess you mean the dome lamps.?
try to be more clear as to which of the many lamps inside are dead.
7: if its a no crank, car, say so, and check for green battery lugs
we clean them , if not corroded ,then we next jump start the car
using jumper cables, per instructions on the box.

step on brake /and key on, and shift to N.

1990 geo prizm 1.6l, auto shifter feels gummy of sticky, will not shift gears, will go into reverse, stays in first.


the lever sticks. get the cable lubed
or new cable.
only a person in the flesh can see whats wrong
why as the blind?
this is a toyota corolla, in GEO snake skins.
the lever must work the cable must work at both end of cable
and then the transmission must work.
