You may want to inspect the distributor or the ignition coil. Check the seals. If you can remove them and have the internal inspected. Water may have come in.

Why did car die while driving on Interstate and will not start back up

When the engine dies all the lights on the dash should come ! It's when the engine is still running an those lights come is when you need to worry ! You need to check for spark an fuel pressure. If no spark probably an ignition module , crankshaft position sensor or distributer module , what ever ignition system it has. If there is spark spray some carburetor clean into the engine , if it try's to start you have a fuel delivery problem , fuel pump , relay ! No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

1997 geo prizm not starting getting too much gas

cranks fast but will not start.

which engine?

ever do a full tuneup on it, the 60k mile service (interval)


this engine really is a toyota corolla.

getting too much gas
what does the mean,?

spark tips soaking in fuel.

fuel dripping out exhaust ports to ground?


if flooding did you crank wide open throttle yet, (per oper. guide ins)


this is called super secret unflood mode, it cuts fuel cranking,

all cars, do that.

this should be your engine, to fix engines, know what you have.

late 1997 change.?

1.8 L 1ZZ-FE (LV6) I4 (gasoline)

DOHC 4valve.

chain cam.

here is the secret to running.

  1. 12vdc power to all EFI parts. electric power over 10v.

  2. good compression over 150psi all 4 cyl. (new timing belt?)

  3. tuned-up and hot spark timed right.

  4. good fueling. not to rich or too lean.

  5. EGR not stuck open, clean it. or ISC stuck closed, clean it.

The ECU works overtime to start and sustain running.

so it failed. this means something is very wrong.

check engine light on key on,? if not fix that.

then connect scan tool and crank for 5 seconds.

got CMP/CKP or spark errors DTC , any at all?

or scan RPM at 0 cranking?


scan the ECU. 1st after checking all fuses.

tuned up,, that is 1st.

if car as VVT-t , option it can fail and cause retarded timing and hard starts.

see the valve cover, here. got VVT-I? I think you dont have this motor.

i think you have this

1993-1997 Geo Prizms were powered by the 4A-FE or optional 7A-FE engine.

as you can see ,knowing what engine is in your car is everything.

4a/7a engine is a belt drive cam.

so did you skip the belt service, ?

if you let it slip, it will not ever start.

the 7a motor will bend its valves, if the belt is ignored.

it is a DOHC , interference engine. so....

the service schedule for the 7A is. 60k on belt

spark plugs and filters

dizzy (distributor engins) new cap/rotor and spark wires too.

Corolla 96 motot starts to cut and/surge in and out

firstly remove the inlet fuel line at the filter and and blow down line with a compressor ,removing fuel cap first,if this doesnt work then it could be fuel pump pressure of air flow meter ,but iam often wrong with this sort of thing and it turns out to be the radio,all joking aside try blowing out fuelline doesnt work??then take it to dealer for computer check
