Question about 1990 Geo Metro
I was backin out of my driveway, it died. it will no start at all, its getting gas and fire, please help
With the limited information given, I will have to assume that you are certain that the injector/injectors are "firing" properly. You said you are getting fire, so I will assume that you have definitely found a spark. The only things needed to make an engine run are air, fuel, and fire. You just have to have everything in the right order. It sounds as if you have a timing belt that may have been a little to loose, and has now jumped a few teeth, causing the valves to open and close at the wrong times. This is one of the only things that could have happened, and still allow you to have spark, as the timing belt runs the camshaft, which runs the distributor. The last thing that I could think of would be contaminated fuel, or low fuel pressure.....You would have fuel, maybe not enough, but you would have fuel. First thing I would check, would be the ignition timing, just to make sure the belt has not jumped time.
