My 1996 geo prizm's steering wheel makes noise when I turn either left or right. I'm assuming it has something to do with power steering or one of the belts, I'm not sure. I need help.
My 1996 geo prizm needs an alignment but I do not want to spend a lot of money. Is there any way I can do this myself
Just had a brand new starter put in it
It just quit. Though it was stalling out when we would come to corners to stop.
Parking brake location?
so every now and again the ratlling comes on.
Buy engine light is on
checked the fuses and can't find one that's bad. also cigg. lighter went out fuses look good. is there an easy (cheap) way of locating/fixing the problem?
I just bought my 96 prizm, I was driving it home ( brakes are bad ) so as I went slow down I put the car in neutral and pulled emergency brake, stopped. Went to put it back in gear and it wouldn't move. I can move the shifter to any gear. But the car isn't changing gear. And I can roll while the car says it's In park.

The trans shifted smooth all the way home. Didn't jerk or anything

Now if I start the car put it in drive try to go it wont, and when I go back to put it in park it sounds like I'm grinding a gear in a 5speed. If I go from park to neutral and back to park it doesn't grind.

Please help
It acted as if it was going to crank at first, but I think it was just the gas in the line. It acts as it there is no gas. I know it Wil be a great car, I just have to get it up and running like the champ that it is. Previous owner DID NOT take care of it and whoever their mechanic was needs a new profession.
