o2 sensor comming off that cat

The Hayes manual shows one for the 1.8, but its not on the 1.6.
I have good spark and fuel , just wont run, stopped on the road like it was turned off.
So far it seems the fuel injectors are not letting fuel into the engine.
Does this seem right?
Fuel injectors ..
The book says only one of 2 terminals on the connector for the fuel injector should be hot when connected to ground, but both of them on all injectors are hot all the time when grounded.
It seems to me, that the item (camshaft position sensor ?) is shorted out or no ground. I cant find anything showing a CPS in any manuals and the toyota service dept, who have been helpful , im surprised , say the CPS is located where im looking, but thats only on the 1.8 engine.

Ever since my wife drove her car down our street during a storm, her motor sputters upon accelleration, and shakes when idle. Changed spark plugs & still no luck. Any ideas?

How much should struts cost for this car.

need to change throttle sencer

ABS activates on dry roads during gentle braking - pulsing brake pedal.

Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, but can be pumped up - no loss of brake fluid.

ABS light comes on - very occasionally - maybe once a week. Resets to correct operation (Shows at engine start, than goes out) at next start up.

Car has been to two shops, including official Chevy Dealer, without a solution.

My 2001 prizm has a problem with the throtle response and it cuts off sometimes when I first crank it up. I have had a diagnostic run on it and it came back with left bank too lean or O2sensor so I changed that and plugs but the light is back on. I know it has to be somthing simple because other then that the car runs out great but fuel milage is still lacking a little on the hwy as well. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks, Jon.

What is the average lifespan of the transmission for this make and model? We are looking to put some money into the car but don't want to if the tranny is just going to crash soon. The car has 116,000 miles.

Can I eliminate the ac and put in a new timeing belt

I recently have an oil change and the mechanic stated that I had oil leaking from the valve cover gasket. He said that the filter needing replacing soon. How much should this cost me?

Has anyone had problems with their cheap, inside plastic door openers breaking? I've had to have mine replaced twice, and now it's broke again on the driver's side. Vehicle only has 65,000 miles on it, as I don't drive that much.

how do I replace the 3rd brake light (center - mounted in the rear window) on a 1999 Chevrolet Prizm? Does it have a bulb?

The original lasted 37,387 miles. I put Bridgstones and Delta's on, same thing, about 30,000 miles? The Bridstones had a 60,000 mile warranty.

Have problem in the a.m. starting car. Up till this point it would take a jump. Cleaned the battery terminals but now the key won't turn and can't take the car out of park. I've tried putting the steering wheel in another positon but the key won't turn. Help!

Engine started to miss and continued to get worse. Took it to get diagnostic check and it came back plugs and wires, which we did. Car ran great but as day worn on, same problem, when at a light it would miss and sputter and upon accel would do the same. At constant speeds it runs fine. Redid the diagnostic and came back possible cat converter problem. It seems to get worse as the day wears on. Ideas??

Are there any cheap/reasonable/simple options to reduce oil consumption such as using a onetime/long-term oil additive or convert to synthetic?
I’ve owned the vehicle since it had 108,000 miles on it. Oil consumption then was 1 qt. every 3,000 miles. The engine now has 157,000 miles on it and currently uses 1 qt. around 2300 miles on a fresh oil change. It uses the 2nd qt. by 4000 miles which is when I change the oil & filter. I always use a quality conventional oil that meets API SM, SL Service Classification and manufacturers' U.S. warranty requirements. It also meets or exceeds ILSAC GF-4. I’ve tried several different brands but consumption continues to increase. There are no leaks. I use this vehicle for an 80 mile daily commute with 98% highway speeds. I want to avoid costly (internal engine) repairs. Would using full synthetic help after a few oil changes? If so, what are the precautions I should follow for the conversion to synthetic?

heard rattling noise in motor. at first they thought it was the tensioner- was not. now they believe it is the crankshaft pulley

I smelled something burning inside the car one day while driving home. Evidently it caused a short and this problem starting occuring. Note: I have no idea what burned and can only sumize the smell came from behind the dash

steering wheel and car shakes when I accelerate mostly between 45-65 mph, I just rotated and balanced tires tho? the engine light is on, maybe the engine doesn't have enough power?
