trying to find #1 cylinder location

I bought the car, as a project. before i drove and test the car. the steering wheel its easy to turn using one hand.. but suddenly its like a rock, both hands heavy to steer..like stiffed

I have a 2002 chevy tracker and was wondering if I could take the motor and transfer case and put in a 96 geo tracker?

I have a 1997 Geo Tracker, 1.6L, automatic trans with 120K miles. The car drives very well. Except, for the last few days, once it gets warmed up, it will not idle. At this point the car will continue to drive well as long as it is moving down the road. However, it will not idle.

It normally idles when warm is 800 rpm when at operating temperature. Now when I slow down to a very low speed, or stop, the engine will continue to low rpm until it reaches 500 rpm. Then is stall. It runs well until it stalls, no roughness to it. If I am able to catch the accelerator before it dies, it'll run rough for a brief moment, then run well again.

Once it stalls, it will immediately restart if I keep the rpm to about 1K. But the problem remains until the engine cools off. A shade tree mechanic suggested it is probably the idle position sensor. But at $184 for parts, I'd like to make sure before ordering parts.

Any ideas? I'm on a limited income and have very little money to invest. I want to get it right the first time

it can run good for days and then it feels like it cuts off a few seconds numerous times after a while it runs good again ,when it does this it gets hard to start and keep running no pattern to it at all

Since it came out of the shop and the cover wasn't put back on the warning says 6 percent on oil even though it was just changed.

Where is my fuel pump located???

My car will start up and idle but it idles at 1500-2000rpm. When you give it gas it will cut out if you give it gas to quick. If you slowly accelerate it will rap out just fine I've replaced air idle control, coolant sensor, and tps. Also car has new plugs, wires, and distributor cap. I'm not so much worried about the high idle but the cutting out and hesitation when trying to accelerate

1991 Geo Prizm stopped running while driving. No start after that. Getting fuel past the fuel filter. Rotor and cap less than a year old. Removed cap and rotor turns when trying to start so I am guessing it's not a timing belt issue. Car has 61000 miles. Wanted to know if anyone can tell me if I have to replace the whole distributor or is the ignition coil replaceable.

Happens every time it gets below 1/2 tank.

when locked in 4 wheel drive will not engage. Why not?

Geo Prizm with 122000 miles. Alternator was faulty making loud noise and a burning plastic smell. Replaced with new DENSO alternator and later 3 OEM Toyota belts. Loud noise and smell went away. Though, squeaking noise was really awful with the older aftermarket belts. It's much better now with new belts, but still a bit of squeaking with start-up, and worse when AC is on. After a good drive the noise disappeared. I just don't want this alternator to go bad prematurely. AC blows nice and cold and have not noticed any issues. What is still causing minor squeaking and how should I proceed?

I have 95 Geo Prizm 1.6. It has high mileage. It was running good until this morning when i stopped to pick up a rock on the road. When i press the gas it stalled. It crack but won't turn run. I checked the fuel pump and fuel filter and they work good. Getting gas pass the filter. What do you think it is? Injectors or timing belt. Thank you, Thomas









Why does the oil light come on and stays on?

my car will crank up and run perfectly fine and it will drive for a lil while, when the temp gauge gets about halfway, and I come to a stop light the engine will turn off. the "check engine" light is on also as well. when it shut off, I let it sit for about 30min.-1hour and it will crank back up and run but it will began to overheat and when I come to a stop sign or a red light the engine will turn off again , I'm not sure whats wrong with my vehicle, can anybody help me , the battery is good , the alternator is fine , I just had my power steering pump replaced , when it blew the was oil all over the place, but eventually was burned off , the serpentine belt is good. can somebody please help me.

I looked under car for loose suspension parts but see nothing wrong. This just started happening at slow speeds. What is causing the problem? Thanks

Was running rough, distributor lobes were in bad shape, replace it with a used spare distributor in good shape
After this, eng. start every time but stall immediately

Parking brake location?

Aftee i pull ovee and let it sit it will start right up. What can it be? Thermostat gage says its not hot.

My 95 prizm idle bounces up and down. I changed the throttle position sensor and it still does it. What am i doing wrong or missing to fix this problem?

The headlights stopped working however the fog lights still work as well as the passing lights. The high beams dont work and the low beams do not work.
