Question about 1997 Geo Prizm
Posted by Anonymous on
Stalls hot, cold or both>???? clues. matter.
by the book.
stalls have over 50 causes.
but are really just 4. Class failures.
a shop uses tools to fine true cause.
1: lost 12vdc power to EFI system. for any reasons.
2: lost compression on one or more cylinders.
3: lost spark. or timed wrong.
4: bad fueling, (too much , or too little) or lost air supply at ilde, ISC stuck closed causing rich and slow, running and stalls.
or just the EGR stuck open. this would fall under, #4
Do you want to test, or gue$$?

I believe the pin should be positioned at the top, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm going to say that the position you had when the fuel backed up into the carb is 180 degrees out on the cam, and that the valves were opening during the compression stroke, therefore blowing the fuel back instead of pulling it in. If you know where the gear was during this, then take it off, go a complete 180 degrees with the cam, and put it back on. This should get you close enough to for the engine to start, then you'll need to dial it in.

Right under the master brake cylinder, its really hard to replace it. It has 2 screws, one bolt on top and the bottom one needs to be screwed off under the car

for that cost you could have taken it to a mechanic and had the compretion tested, that is what needs to be done. at least 90psi and all cyliders sould be within 15% to that.

Your ABS light is on for good. It will not shut off unless you fix the brake system which is usually more than the car is worth. Most people just use black tape. I took out my bulb 10 years ago. The brakes still work fine, just no anti lock brakes, i never noticed a difference. I had another guy say his car wouldn't run when the light came on, I never heard that before. Hope this helps.
