Have alot of water leaving tailpipe, what it be?


Results of combustion: Carbon dioxide and water. It is normal to see water coming out the tail pipe when it's cold, until the exhaust system warms up.

TRUCK STALLS AND IS SPITTING OUT OIL FROM MUFFLER


If your oil is coming out your tailpipe your engine is burning it. Most likely the piston rings are worn and need replaced. That means rebuilding the engine and cost is going to be in the thousands. Probably between $2000-2500 for a re-ring job. You need to check if it is oil, or carbon/water. Take your finger and wipe the inside of the tailpipe. Is it slippery like oil, or gritty like water and carbon? If it is just carbon then it is no big deal.

Slipping in 1st gear and around sharp left turns


If you have never had the spark plugs changed it is time to do so. Since you have drilled a hole in the cat you will need to replace it when your state inspection comes around becouse it wont pass. Some fuel injection cleaner will help with the sputtering. You should treat it with injection cleaner once a month since the plugs have been allowed to fowel and caused carbon build up in the cylinders.

1993 Geo Prizm is turning into a money pit. now it has an exhaust leak. It also sputters through all gears at the start. Could this be due to thw exhast leak or a bad fuel pump???


I don't think an exhaust leak would cause the sputtering in all gears. I've run my Geo in the past with a cracked exhaust manifold for months, and it ran fine, just a bit louder. Are your spark plugs & wires in good shape (missing vs sputtering)? Also check inside the distributor cap for corrosion/carbon build up. If all that is ok, then I would start with the basics: first try running a complete fuel system cleaner through it for the next two tanks, that should clear any partially clogged fuel injectors. If no luck, then replace the fuel filter, and try it, if it still sputters you can check the fuel pump strainer if it looks ok, then you might want to replace the fuel pump.

My truck failed emissions with 125 carbon minoxide. Limit is 25.


No, the emission control for Monoxide is before the muffler system, Catalytic converter is the final adjusting device.
