    1989 Pontiac Firefly won't start. I checked the timing, and it is bang on. There is spark, and I have replaced the plugs, wires, rotor and cap. Also, I removed and cleaned the throttle body, and there is fuel pressure. I recharged the battery, and checked all the lines and hoses. The injector looks good, and sprays properly, I believe. I tried ether, too. I am baffled.

    My 1992 Geo Metro conv. has intermitent starting/running problem. It would not start (power to coil, but no spark out). Replaced coil and it started and ran great for (2) short trips (5-7mi each). Next trip it quit and would not start again (towed home). Now it will (some times) start and run for a few minutes and quit again. When it doesn't start it still shows power to ign coil--no spark out. Has new plugs, dist. cap, rotor and pick up coil. Tried different ign coils with same result. ANY IDEAS???

Sounds like your timing belt has slipped or broken, bad news is it is a interference engine, talking rebuild if that is the problem.

I have a 97 geo metro 4 cyl engine the other day broke down the wrecker driver said sounds like fuel pump is bad. I replaced pump and filter still would not start. getting fire. Last night I started it...

first check fuses. (test them)
then check for spark at all 4 cylinders. good.?
if not timed correctly (spark) with timing light, then the cam belt slipped. (oops not changed at 60k, oops)
if all that is good engine runs on test fuel, does it?
if yes, you lost fuel.
easy huh, watch scotty

Why will my 1995 Geo Metro not start?

You have a pick-up coil in the distributor that tells the computer when to fire the injectors, I would guess this might be your problem, you are getting fuel to the injectors, but not into the engine.

94 geo metro won't start. possibly fuel problem. has trouble when i hit gas to make up a hill and misses, no transmission or spark plug problems. HELP!

Do a complete tune up plugs wires cap rotor. The spark gets stronger when your accelerating and this is when some electrical problems break down.

92 geo just stopped running while driving!

I would check your coil or your distributer. The easiest way to check to see if you have a spark would to pull the spark plug out then plug it back into the spark plug wire. Ground it off to the engine mount or any good gound, then have someone turn the key and see if the plug sparks. (Make sure you wear electric gloves while doing this.)
