1992 geo prizm start but won't run we have changed the fuel filter fuel pump distributor cap and rotary button coil pack battery and alternator plugs and wires the catalytic converter was glowing red


Sounds like the cat or muffler is plugged. If there is an 02 senor ahead of the cat or muffler take it out and see if the car will start, it will run rough but if it starts one of them is plugged and it most likely is the catalytic converter in the exhaust system.

Next time it doesn't start, spray your plug wires and distributor cap with WD40. If it fires right up replace your plug wires. I had the same problem with my 3 cyl 1.0L .

I have geo metro94/3 while driving engine shut down will not start no more


Hello, the usual culprit is the fuel filter being clogged. Sometimes a clogged fuel filter will let the fuel through and other times it will not. This means the car will run some of the times, where other times it will starve your engine of fuel causing it to stop and not start right away. The next possibility is your ignition system. Cracked distributor cap, a short in that area, bad coil wire, or any other obstacle causing your spark to not reach the spark plugs. Easiest and cheapest place to start is to replace your fuel filter and eliminate that as the cause. Your fuel pump could also be the issue but you can usually hear a whirring sound before you start a car which is the fuel pump doing its job. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 chevy S10 blazer 4x4, it wont start,I replaced the module,fuel pump,plugs,wires,rotar buttom and distributor cap. I can get it to start by putting fuel in intake,but it dies as soon as it...


Have you checked the fuel pressure? There are two different fuel pumps for this vehicle and if you installed the wrong one, for the 4.3 VIN Z instead of the pump for the 4.3 VIN W, Which it sounds like you have a VIN W, It won't start. Also I've seen the harness go bad in the intake that runs the injector. Have you checked for injection pulse at the plug to the injector.

1990 chevy suburban fuel problem just put a new fuel pump and filter in this summer last week i put new wires cap and rotar and plugs started up drove it it worked much better parked it on my hill went...


When you replaced the fuel pump, did you notice if the pick-up line was in good condition or not? I have been told by a mechanic that has over 35 yearsof experience that this was a common problem, and especially now with Ethanol being mixed in with fuel.

I have a 93 s10blazer 4.3 vortec 4x4 that wont start. my fuel pump is working i replaced the ignition module, ignition coil, plugs n wires r good, distributor cap and rotar button. idk what it could be


First spray starting fluid in the air filter. If it starts it is a fuel problem. If it doesn't start then pull one of the spark plugs and see if there is spark. If there is not spark then it is an ignition problem.
If it is a fuel problem and the fuel pump is running when you turn the key on, then check fuel pressure. It should be over 35psi.
If it an ignition problem start by checking fire at coil.

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.
