Question about 1995 Geo Prizm

2 Answers

Low power when stepping on the gas.

My son is driving my mom's 95 Geo Prism.  As he was driving yesterday, suddenly the engine got very loud and he could only get miminal power or pickup when stepping on the gas.  Any ideas before we bring it in?  He can drive it, gingerly,  but we think he shouldn't.

As the other poster stated, Your car has likely jumped timing. This can lead to serious engine damage. Have the car towed to a mechanic and looked at. The increase in noise further reinforces the fact that the timing belt has slipped a tooth.

I have a1995 GEO prism it runs good but when I let off of the throttle it won't idle unless I keep my foot on the throttle


Clean the throttle body and idle air control motor. Just a cheap start. Could be the engine is old and tired.

Loud Engine Noise


Hello, it's probably not safe to drive, noises are never good news, I would suggest that you check the engine oil and if it's low add oil to it and hope it's not too late to prevent engine damage.

1991 geo prism brake and battery came on while driving for few minutes then went off what's it trying to tell me?


the battery is really charge failure.
but happens normally under 2 ways.
1: motor stalls, (car have M/T or A/T)
2: motor RPM drops real low, to like 500rpm or less. near stall.
and generator (alt) drops off line.
all normal, next time , look at RPM of engine when the lamps come on and that tells you what is happening.
buy a tachmeter, if no dash tach opted.
or use a mech. tach and use it while driving.
