Shifter wont release and brake light function is being affected. So i have to manually release at plastic mechinism at base of shifter. So i can put car in gears and drive it. But it cancels my brake lights and all fuses, brake switch and wiring is functional. Im thinkin its the shift lock sensor. Is it??
Can the evaporator thermistor cause the problem? Replaced compressor, charged a/c, checked fuses and relays, changed high/low pressure switch.
I am trying to replace the computer but I am unsure where it is located?
Why is car sputtering like it is not getting enough gas or the catalytic converter is stopped up?
how do I get it reset to green shows no new code car yr is 2001
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.
This only happened once while I was driving and suddenly it stopped running.
trying to find #1 cylinder location
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.
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
