The something plug is the oil pressure switch. You can use an ohm meter to make sure the switch is bad. With the engine off you should have continuity at the switch and with the engine running the switch should be open. Hope fully your problem is as easy as installing a new switch, if this does not fix your problem you will need to hook up a mechanical gauge as see what your actual oil pressure is.

SOURCE: on a 1991 geo tracker trying to find location of fuel pump relay?

The fuel pump relays are mounted on an "L" bracket underneath the ECM. Both have something to do with the Fuel pump. Be careful not to get it confused with the horn relay it is in the same vicinity (under the dash on the drivers side).

SOURCE: 1996 2.2 liter. Starving for fuel

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

I will try to help you. You are correct about the starting fluid, if it has fire starting fluid should do something. So the problem must be either no fire to the plugs or the timing belt is broke.

Check to see if the plugs have spark. If they do not, then get with the Autoparts store and ask if your car needs a Ignition relay to run. Then ask if your car takes a rubber timing belt. If your car does not have a rubber timing belt try the Ignition relay. If you do have a rubber belt check behind the shield in front of the engine to see if the timing belt is broke.

The timing belt is different than the serpetine belt that drives the pulleys. Cars with rubber timing belts have both belts. Should your timing belt be broken it is not an expensive repair. But you will need to details on replacement of that part.

The Prism is actually a Corolla, so you can use info for either model. You should have a main or EFI relay that powers the computer and the fuel pump relay. The engine computer powers the pump relay if it sees oil pressure or RPM.
Have you checked the EFI relay and the pump relay for power, and will the engine run if you bypass either relay ?

My ABS light is staying on - 1995 Geo Prism


Your abs light is permanent. Most people don't bother to fix this, it is expensive, and your car is getting old. It means that the anti lock brake system has failed and needs repair. But your brakes still work fine, just don't have anti lock. So I'm not saying tape over the light on the dash, but.

Where to fill gear oil in manual 5 speed 1990 geo lsi


It should be the same place as a 1991 Metro, on the back side of the transaxle there is a plug that takes a 15/16 wrench to remove. the plug faces the drivers side tire. If oil drips out when you remove the plug it is full. Otherwise use your finger to see if you can touch the oil. Fill with some type of syringe. jeb

Clean the mass airflow sensor (or replace it outright) and change your oxygen sensor. Those are very big contributors to fuel mileage. Also, verify that the new plugs are gapped correctly.
