Question about Geo Prizm
Posted by Anonymous on
Toy 4afe engine.
warm no starts.
so did you check for spark loss , warm? or hot?
if not why not?
if spark is good, did you use test fuel to see if added fuel starts it?
are the the spark plug tips (yes,look) soaking in gas (failed) or dry.?
this is how you diagnois all Gas engines. even a lawn mower.
ever do the 60k lash check on valves?
put in a new timng belt, may be yours slipped, its a 60k service.
do the lash checks at 60K,
if lash is too tight, the gap can go to zero hot,killing compression
Valve clearance (engine cold), (in.):
Intake (0.006) 6 thou
Exhaust (0.014) 14 thou.
why not do the FULL 60k tuneup now. not cutting corners or skips
is the CEL out , hot driving>
the check engine light.??
