Geo QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.
