Geo storm wont start after putting in new battery,altornatior,plugs and wires,and cap and rotor


storms, those are very rare. and Isuzu is very dead here.USA.
which size engine?
wont crank/?
or cranks ok, but wont start.
its old.
1:check compression, yet, over 150PSI (w.o.t)
2: check for spark at all 4 cylinders?
3: try test fuel if spark is good (spray fuel)

1991 geo storm gsi,Was going down the road fine and all of a sudden It cut off and cannot restart it what could be the possible problem or cuses.


same answer for all cars made 1920 to now.
never restarted ,ever ? gee , a little hint...?
1: lost engine compression hot, (gee forgot to do the 60k serviice/)
2: lost spark , yes, check spark at all 4 cyl. if bad check coil spark.
3: lost fuel or too much fuel called flooding.

one removes a spark plug, it drips of fuel , say all 4.
flooding.
crank motor at WOT, wide open throttle to clear flooding.
if the spark is good and the spark tips are dry, then try test fuel
if car starts and dies. then you lost injection.

easy huh> with the above you know exactly why it fails.
compression bad
spark
fueling.

1991 i think is TBI single injection engine, i can look it up but
no i wont. we need to do the tests first to get there.

1992 geo storm replaced distributer have fire out of coil wire but no fire spark plug wire module in distributer checks out


storm is an ISUZU
and had 3engines,which one? below is off wiki on storm.
1.6 L SOHC 4XE1 I4
1.6 L DOHC 4XE1 I4
1.8 L DOHC 4XF1 I4


coil makes 50,000 volts (even 1kv makes fire, but is too weak spark
spark plugs dead , right? all 4 right?
ever do a 60k mile tune up ? if not why not, it gets new spark parts then..
also, if the cam timing is off. the dizzy sparks between towers
make the distributor useless, it cant distribute spark.
so the first tests are .
static ignition timing. (yes, a tool, called a timing light for $20)
if timing is good the the wires HV are bad.
if timing is bad, bingo..... this is the first test on any motor.
if the timing belt or chain on any SOHC or DOHC engine slips
the dizzy will be way to h3ll off.
learn to use a timing light, and works 100% cranking.

look at that distributor cap (replace it)
see the coil wire , center, that is at 50kv spark.
and see that rotor, if the spark is good at the cap pins 1 to 4
then the dizzy is timed.
if the spark dont reach the spark plugs that means
the wire are bad or the spark plugs are shorted, or both.
its that simple. using a real spark testing tools tells you the KV.
kv = kilovolts. the best tools $5 bucks have and adjustable gap
this car is not 100kv, like newer cars and must be set (tool) to 50kv or tad less to show full powerful spark.

take care not to get shocked, keep hands off the parts
as friend cranks (or remote start button tool)

I got a 1993 geo storm, the car only has one mod, a cold air intake, but this is what happened, I was driving and the car would not go over 2k rpms, it was moving and running, but I floored it and...


Is the catalytic converter original? sounds to me like it just might be clogged in the short period car is running how hot is the catalytic getting (careful when touching sounds to me like its getting really hot) check all intake and throttle body bolts for tightness intake boot not cracked all intake clamps tightened and checked for good seal.

If the cat was doing anything, it would smell like rotten eggs.
If you have raw gas smell, use caution; you have a leak somewhere in your fuel delivery and you could see flames eventually.
