Question about 1997 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

Prizm geo won't turn over, I noticed it was very low on oil. Acts like the battery is low.

I added a quart of oil but I'm not sure if I should try and start it since it was so low on oil.

Fill it up with oil and and try to jump start it with some jumper cables
you may also try to turn the engine over by hand by using a scoket on the crank pulley if it turns over real hard or will not turn over the engine may need to be replaced do to no oil

SOURCE: 1995 Geo Prizm won't start

I just checked the battery connection and what I thought was a good connection wasn't. It need new connectors on the post. Runs fine after I tightened them more.

SOURCE: 1993 Geo Prizm turn signals

You have a bad turn signal switch if the hazards work and the turn signals do not. It has nothing to do with the fuse or the flasher unit. Your switch is bad or you have a bad connection some where.

SOURCE: 1997 Geo Prizm - does not start

sounds liike a fuel problem, turn key on without starting listen for fuel pump kicking on if it does now check the connections at the pump/fuse if it is kicking on the you can check the fuel pressure by checking the little valve on the fuel rail next to the intake looks just like the air valve on your tires if there is no pressure then check fuel filter.

If the check engine light is on you should have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will direct you or a mechanic on where to look for the problem.
Sometimes the problem is low fuel pressure or a dirty fuel filter.
