Question about Geo Prizm
If it is it will likely show up by running code diagnostics. Here is where I would start. Your problem is either fuel related, spark related, or a compression/timing issue. And yes, these problems can be caused by sensors. Does the engine turn over? If so, you can run some preliminary diagnostics to narrow the problem down, rather than spending money on parts changing. The description is consistant with what would happen if your timing belt broke...check that first. If that is good, then you eliminate the compression/timing problem from the equation. Next see that you have spark to all cylinders...if you do, then it is a fuel system related problem, if you don't then you'll need to diagnose your spark issue. Good Luck. Hope this is helpful. Let me know which way is headed and I can asist further if needed.
