Question about 1994 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

Help Just recently, our geo started shutting off when stopped at a light or pretty much any time you are not pressing the gas pedal. It seems even worse when the air conditioner is on. What do you think?

Try cleaning out the throttle body. Sometimes the throttle body gets dirty and doesn't allow air to enter. Normally there should be a slight crack at the throttle plates that allows the car to idle on it's own. Use some carb. cleaner and spray it into the throttle body and you'll probably see black gunk come out of it.

Did you by any chance get gas before this happened? If you overfill your gas tank sometimes it affects the engine but when the gas goes down some in the tank everything normallizes

When hot will randomly not start unless gas pedal is pressed all the way down. on a 2001 honda crv. replaced fule pump,fuel relay,fuel filter, dist. cap, rotor, coil,plugs, wires, and ignition control


If you hold the pedal to the floor it puts the fuel system into Clear Flood Mode. This prevents the injectors from firing and lets the already present fuel burn out. Now if this has to be done on every short trip you probably have a leaking injector.

Does the vehicle seem to crank slowly or stop and then crank when this happens?

No acceleration, car doesn't start or stops running


When did you last replace fuel filter? Check and replace it.
Check fuel pressure if you have the equipment.
Possible causes of your problem are fuel filter or possible fuel pump that is going out.
If you have a code scanner (they are relatively cheap now) pull the codes and see what you get.
Many shops will read the codes for free or cheaply.

Oil light


Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.
