1990 Geo Prizm QuestionsRefine by vehicle
my engine lite comes on and stays on for a few daze the off again. very intemittant. can not get a code reading when it not on..Ifigure EGR. is that the device on the top of the engine that has an 'adjustment valve' on it ???
appreciate the help.. the service manuals I have are only the "block diagram" ones...thanks in advance.
143.000 miles and runs like a 'bdd''
car just quit. No noises. Wasn't running differently. Code 15
The car turns over and runs great as long as I feed it starter fluid. I can hear the fuel pump priming so I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel rail and watched a good flow of fuel coming out while I was cranking the engine. With the key in the on position, I put a test light through the yellow wire of each injector and had constant power. The vehicle was my deceased fathers and has been sitting for a 3-4 months, There is evidence of pack rat damage in other vehicles but I have not found any damage so far in this car. My father was a mechanic and was known for jury rigging most things so it is possible he "modified" the car although not likely.
I was driving down the road at 45 mph, and the driver side front wheel started making a Squall noise, and came to dead stop. Every time I attempted to take off it did the same thing. When I got it home and jacked it up the wheel had no problem turning. Tried the bearings but they are fine.
Have looked and can not find which fuse it might be.
Where is the fuel relay fuse located at on a 90 Geo Prizm?
Have replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, distributor cap rotor, spark plugs and wires. The car has spark and fire but will not stay running. Do you have any suggestions please!
faster than car when taking off but once you get going there is power but also a noise when you step on accelerator. When you have to come to a stop again it dies and doesn't want to start again. Have replaced fuel filter. When you go to try and start it, it just cranks over and over and if your lucky it will finally start but when go to stop if you don't put it in neutral and keep the idle up it dies. Please help taxi cabs are getting expensive. Thank you
Sounds like metal clanging together but when driving around the noise goes away.
High mileage,leaks a quart daily, otherwise runs very well
It's 10 degrees here didn't know if that changes anything. Haven't locked the wheel. If there's a way to start it and drive with the key and the wheel locking that could help to
work great no slips just all of a sudden from a stop sign
