My husband was on his way to work the other day, in his trusty little 1994 Geo Prizm, when all of the sudden, the engine dies and the car will not start. He managed to get it towed home but it still will not start. The starter engages, but the engine will not turn over. Any ideas as to what could be the problem? It has close to 240k miles.

I found a broken belt and am wondering what it goes to. It connects to whatever is underneath the Alternator. I do not have a serpentine belt either I have 3 belts I believe.
As I attached my seatbelt into the buckle I noticed that it refused to latch on. I was wondering if anyone knows if the dealership would replace it for free or, would I have to take it to a regular mechanic to replace it for me and how much it would cost? I have a 97 Geo Prizm and I live in Wilshire/Koreatown 90004 area. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Had a new transmission droped in, it was tested at the shop before it was put in. It will shift into reverse and when it is in drive it will not shift out of first into second or drive. Thanks for your help.
Tail, dash, interior and licence bulbs all went out at the same time. Is there a single fuse for these? There is a fuse panel next to the left foot driver's side and two under the hood. All those fuses appear to be OK. Thanks
I just bought my first car (1997 Geo Prizm) and had so many repairs done recently and sort of feel like I was ripped off. Now since I know nothing about cars I would like a second opinion. The technician charges $90/hr. This is what I had done. Oil change $40, flushed transmission fluid $129, timing belt replaced and water pump leak fixed $1117, new battery $129, 4 new tires $500 and new wiper blades $24. Oh I forgot to mention the car had about 117,698 miles on it
my car is kind of loud when it starts but is louder upon acceleration the mechanic said it needs some kind of gasket what is it?the car been like that since i bought it 2yrs ago

The problem began after the engine was replaced with a lower mileage, used engine (punctured radiator from highway debris caused it to overheat and warp). A couple of weeks after the replacement, it stalled on the freeway without warning. Now it will start and run until the speed reaches about 2,000-2,500 rpm. Then it just quits, like the key had been turned off. It will immediately restart and do the same over thing again. Sometimes the check engine light will come on, sometimes it will flash, sometimes it will not come on at all. The mechanic who replaced the engine checked the throttle position sensor, plugs, wires, injectors, distributor, put at least two or three different used ECM's in and did everything else he could think of (including consulting other mechanics) and finally gave up. Fortunately he didn't charge anything since he didn't fix it. Took it to the GM dealer who replaced the fuel filter and said there is good fuel and spark but the ground on the ECM is lifting right at the point the engine quits and wanted to replace the ECM again and rewire it. Unless I am missing something, I would think that the wiring should be OK if it runs consistently at the lower speed and never cuts out until the engine speed is increased. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
