Disable the Airbag system it is extremely dangerous to any mechanic.
i recommend a factory service manual as there are many pitfalls.
battery disconnected (minus lug only) safest.
remove plastics from steering , and combo switch area.
see ignition switch.
remove connector to switch (follow cable to conn)
remove the tamper screws. (the FSM explains all this)
remove clamp at main switch,
remove steering wheel if switch will not split and come off.
this can be very tricky as the airbag as a mainspring here and must
not be damaged or loss of timng in the spring, the FSM explaiins
all this and is far from the scope of a blog/forum, to say the least .
the above will convince you go get pro help or read the manual.
the FSM.

Key won't turn and sometimes gets stuck in 97 geo prizm. does this mean the whole ignition switch needs to be replaced, or just the lock cylinder?


yea it sounds like you have warn tumblers in the ignition. look at your key. the edges are all rounded off. a good lock smith will be able to key your ignition with the key that fits your car door

1984 Geo Prizm run but drumping to too much gas


Might be anything but first I will inspect and replace the air filter. Other reason might be a lover compression test result. If it is 70 psi, then engine hesitates, but some people continue to drive and when it goes down to 60 psi the engine refuses to run .
One more reason might be ignition timing and the strength of spark. The distributor, wires and spark plugs have to be inspected, and replaced if necessary.
Finally another reason might be valve timing. This is related with the timing belt. If this is replaced please disregard this. I had a 90 ties Geo Prizm, and was making an average 30 miles per gallon.
Gradually dropped at 26 mile per gallon. I replaced the timing belt and a I got again 30 miles per gallon.
If your car will be sent in our car repair shop, these will be the first tests we will perform, to find the problem. Geo Prizm is a nice car, and very easy to take care with. If you will check this points by yourself, then you can save money and hope solve your problem.
