Sounds like a fuel filter is clogged or a very weak fuel pump. Filter can be picked up at local auto parts store. Located underneath the car on the inside of the driver side frame rail usually.

Geo what? metro,sidekick,prizm, Storm?
which engine? is in it?
Sounds(soundless) like, many things. (seen them all)
1: timing belt slipped, low compression (gauge it)
150psi good 80 bad. a 60k mile tuneup item (on the list) lost it?
2: needs a tuneup, spark parts are toast.
3: serious fueling issues.? takes tools , ask. (low fuel pressure
4: EGR valve suck open, a 50k service check.
5: the rare melt cat converter. (well ,not so rare in 93)
6: bad fuel, is fuel odd, this thing sit a long time?

all can be discovered in hr, work by any tech.
but with no tools , it's all just a guessing game.
got tools? want to buy some? what to do it? ask how.

93 corolla suddenly shut of while driving. all electricity seems fine, but the car wont start up again, can anyone help me?

I had the same happen to my 94 Corolla, it cut off while driving. Change out your distributor and adjust idle before tightening down.

Sputtering and stalling while driving and then just dies.

additive? for what reason, for stalling? or just for fun added.
you didnt say.?????
if it was for bad running, did you read the container, ?
and add the correct amount on a full tank of fuel, if not , then you may have added too much, some additives are very bad,
next time use Techron fuel additive, (if you feel compelled)
if the car runs bad no fresh fuel, and all 4 sparks are fouled.
no additive is best. fouled sparks are from other reasons.
50 reasons. and not one is cured by magic in a bottle.
I run Chevron fuel in my car, so adding more benzene is of no help
you said plugs, that to me means, (????)_all 4 are fouled.
4 plugs changed, where they spec type spark plugs, J plugs.
and were the gapped to Geo Storm spec.
if new plugs foul? that means (all 4?) means its running rich.
top reason for rich are:
1: thermostat missing or stuck open (engine never reaches normal temp)
2: Sensors reading wrong,
The Check engine lamp, what does it do.?
Is CEL light glowing key on,. then out after starting, (no? then pull the DTC codes and read the problem)
too high fuel pressure, ask your mech to measure that. or DIY.
ECU stuck in limphome mode. check DTC codes for reason.
Dead , bad or weak sensors.
leaking injectors
Ask any ASE mechanic, to just diagnose the problem.
then you have your answer. but many shops never seen a GEO ever
and have no documentation. on these.
how ever alldata dot com has it.

I have a 93 geo storm 1.6 just got it filled the tank and drove it for about 3 hours turns burned all the gas.. it starts when its cold then runs for a bit then shuts off..

in neutral or in gear, driving or not, only as you come to stops?
and can you save the stall with fast right foot action?
big clues there....

an oldy but a goody?
car stalls, there are 50 ways to stall a motor.
here is a list, (we never use lists. we use tools) but....
1: never tuned up the engine>, do the full 60kmile service, no?
2: EGR stuck open, see #1
3: ISC stuck closed (or IAC)
4: injector clogged or leaking.
5: TPS idle switch stuck open, (dead idle controls)
6: bad gas.
7: bad engine (low compression, or cam timing , way off)
8: bad spark timing ,see #1
9: clogged cat converter. (melted inside blocking exh)
and many more.
most 93s i ,see have many of those. like stacking up bricks on a camels back......

Rpm's fluctuate when trying to idle and eventually dies

check for vacumn leaks, hoses, and intake. check idle air control valve for proper operation, if you have check engine light run codes by shorting diagnotic terminal and turn ignition to run. Should flash any codes in system.
