Geo Prizm Problem Report

Geo Prizm Hesitation or No Start Due to Internal Distributor Fault

(3 reports)

The ignition coil inside the distributor may fail. Our technicians tell us this may result in a hesitation on acceleration, especially when the vehicle is warming up on cold, rainy days. The pickup coils inside the distributor can also fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributors, which can short out. Our technicians recommend replacing the whole distributor with a complete, genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.

Coil failed, no spark to any cylinder at 135000 mi. Now HEI code displays with poor engine performance but spark on all cylinders. HEI module $300 +. -
