Question about 1991 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

Will my 91 geo prizm make it to Seattle WA from LA, CAlifornia? It's 235000 miles with a new transmission and alternator. Sometimes when it's in idle for a while or in traffic my heat gage goes up but when I begin to drive at faster speeds it goes back down, will my car be ok and not over heat?

We're Is the spedomoter cable located at on a 91

I am only showing an upper cable available from auto parts stores. The cable or sensor for the transmission may be a dealer part.
The cable or sensor should attach to the side of the transmission.

I have a renault espace I fitted a new alternator appx 5 yrs ago it has now stopped charging could it be an alternator relay problem or do I need a new alternator?

5 years is alot of miles ago... it's possibly bad. If you have a voltmeter you can verify. With car running, connect voltmeter to battery and it should read between 13.1 volts - 15.8 volts. Anything lower, alternator is bad. Also have your battery "load tested", it can give similar symptoms.

I broke the belt on my prizm yesterday that controls the alternator and water pump. The engine heated.I had a new belt put on and did my delivery job that night(250 miles). Today it died on me. Could this...

If the timing belt broke the engine would sound way different when turning over and it would crank faster since you would not have compression. Look thru the oil cap while cranking. You should see the valves moving

After unusual below freezing weather here in california my 94 prizm is idling really rough and sputters in gear what might be the problem

Sounds like water in the gas. Colder temperatures can lead to condensation in the gas tank. Water then enters the fuel line, causing sputtering, rough idle, and occasional stalling. Try a bottle of Dri-Gas or other similar product with your next fill up. If the problem persists, you may need to change your fuel filter.

The averge volts that your alternator should put out 11 to 13 volts. Under a load it is going to be about 11. At normal idle it should be around 13.
