Which engine? 1 cam, 1..6L or twin, or the 1.8L twin cam,( that bends valves in the head when the belt slips,etc)
lots of reasons,, over 50 in fact
want us to guess, 1 in 50 or all 50.?
if misfiring , new spark plugs and wires. cap.rotor.
a tuneup.
if already tuned up, a clean aircleaner with filter or just fuel filter?>
do the whole 60k mile tune up.
check spark timing yet, if way of the cam belt slipped,
(a 5 min check that makes, common ignored belts easy to find)

    i have the list of 50, if you need it, but the tests are 10x less. so that is why we do testing (after a full tuneup) and on all very old Isuzu engines (it is) we do a spark timing test first. then compression. this is called basics' in school for ASE . all the tests are easy, and cheap tools. do you want to guess or Test? it's your call.!

Try unplugging the throttle position sensor, it's on the opposite side of where the throttle cable hooks up, if it helps then replace it

Is there any tricks to installing throttle position sensor in 92 geo storm? Not adjusting. Simply take out two screws and replace part and reinstall screws is it that easy?

Yes its that easy, just make sure you engage the notch on it to the throttle body shaft. You may have to roll it past the screw holes to engage the notch. Then holding it in place on the throttle body, just roll it back to where the holes line up for the screws. Do not over tighten the screws

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.

1992 Geo Storm having problems.

you may have turned too many rmps and warped a piston which would cause the piston to actualy hit your valve, or while turning too many rpms you may have caused the valve to "float" which would mess it up

Injectors not spraying

I'm not a pro but sounds like your injectors might be clogged. Try buying a high strength fuel system cleaner from like Autozone but sounds like you might have to remove the injectors and clean them manually. Are you sure they are firing? You can listen to them fire by placing a stethoscope on them and verify there is a uniform ticking noise in them while the engine is running.

92 geo storm

These can have many pages and many year-to-year and model variations.
Check Haynes and Chilton for an aftermarket service manual for your car. They are between ~$17-$30 and will earn their money back many times over and available online and at most any auto parts store.
