Question about 1995 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

Won't start 95 Prizm has been getting more reluctant to start. It would turn over and not start, I'd wait a sec and then it would start. It has been getting more frequent until tonight when it refused to start. It turns over energetically, but there is no fire. I know you're not supposed to "pump" the accelerator, but I tried that and it felt like it wanted to try to start, but didn't. Car has 209K and has been a good car. Mostly minor work done on it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    i have the same problem, i replaced plugs,wires,cap rotor if i can get it to start it bogges out after a few minutes.

    I've had the same problem several times. I've replaced the starter twice with only 168,000 miles. I had a starting problem more recently and it was the igniter that was bad.



    Starting the car has been the only major problem that I've ever had with this model.

My 95 gmc wont start when hot


check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks it may divert the fuel when warmed up,check all vacuum hoses for cracks if you think it's bad change it. turn key on and wait 30 sec.then crank and see what happens,fuel pump may be getting hot.if you can check fuel pressure at the rail for at least 35 psi.you can do this by removing the schrader valve and attach a hose with gauge.you should be able to hear the fuel pump for a few sec.when you turn the key on. try this when cold then hot see if you notice a differance.it seems to relate to a fuel problem.hope this helps,dave

I can't see a way for the serpentine belt damaging the camshaft.
Was the engine running after the belt broke ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?
