1995 Geo Prizm LSi starting problems

I recently had a problem starting the car. In the end, it was the igniter, but in the process we replaced the cap, the rotor, plug wires, plugs and the fuel filter. It also threw some codes that were otherwise fixed or were wrong for some reason (A bunch of different sensors, some were working despite the code, others I fixed).

After we got the car to start again and stop stalling out, it putters occasionally, sometimes only once or twice each time I drive it, other times it will putter 10 to 15 times in a row while I'm driving.

I used a can of BG 44k and it seems to have improved the performance a little, but it still putters.

1994 Geo Prizm LSI running one day won't crank next day


turns over and crank are the same thing,
so you are saying it does crank over but no start,right?
you need to determine if you have at least 50psi of fuel pressure in fuel rail at reed valve.

1995 geo prizm lsi starting problems.


There is a long list of possible causes, You would have to check into each individual one.

1.) Failing fuel pump.
2.) Bad valve seat/seal
3.) Sticking valve
4.) Timing is off, Reset timing to 10* BTDC
5.) Clogged fuel injector(s)
6.) Your new ignition coil (as im assuming thats what you meant by "Igniter") may be faulty.
7.) Wiring to the new ignition coil may be faulty
8.) Spark plug wires not firmly in place.
9.) Faulty Distributor pickup coil and/or wiring harness/wiring.

The list goes on and on, Some are more likely then others. Personally, from experience (having owned 4 95 geo prizms myself in my lifetime) i would go with the clogged injectors, Fuel pump, and distributor pickup/wiring in that order. Those engines last quite a long time when properly cared for, An internal engine problem (Although possible) is unlikely in my opinion.

1995 Geo Prizm starts, but stalls when put into drive.


We finally took it to a mechanic and it turned out the ignition coil was bad. Replaced it and the spark plugs and all is well now.

Yes a harmanic balancer from tha corolla is the same thing. I had to do the same thing with my 95 geo. It works out to be a lot cheaper buying for a toyota than a geo.
