Question about 1991 Geo Storm

1 Answer

1991 Geo Storm overheated on my daughter, she stopped and called me. When I arrived 45 minutes later the engine was cooled, but I was only able to add about 1/2 gallon of water. Sent her on her way and within 5 minutes she called and said the car was hot again. Runs OK. I am thinking water pump or thermostat, please advise.

Timing marks on 1.6 dual over head cam


the geo storm, 1.6 DOHC
the FSM cover it, so does alldata.com
hint 2, its an Isuzu engine.
its really (makes information easier to find )
Isuzu:
4XE1-UW a DOHC 16-valve engine with 130 hp (97 kW)
he DOHC engine was used in the 1990-1991 Isuzu Impulse XS, in the 1990-1991 Isuzu Stylus XS, in the 1990-1991 Geo Storm GSi, and the M100 Lotus Elan.
all that off the wiki,,
all cars rare here.....

1st google hit
http://www.robietherobot.com/storm/torquespecs.htm

This engine is interference type
so when timed, with a new belt
roll engine by hand, with spark plugs out.? do pistons hit valves.
yes, stop, the cam is timed wrong.
no, do a compression test on #1, if pass, do all 4. 150psi min.w.o.t.
wide open throttle
a better test, is a leak down test. x4. by hand.
these acts of kindness to the engine, saves most engines.

if the leak down fails, the timing is wrong, or the valves are already
bent..
dont use a fleabay china belt, bet a GATES belt. (they last)
setting the tension is very important to a full life .

Clunk sound when start up then later engine failure


this is called, Engine stall.
it has many causes.
1: lost DC power to the EFI system (corroded fuses?)
2: bad engine compression for many reasons but not doing the 60k service is #1 , for ever.
3: bad spark (and timing)
4: bad fueling, too much or too little.
we use simple cheap tools to find this problem
after doing the 60k mile service.

its old car, most i see are trash, 10 or more show stoppers.
bad. all ignored by owners. #1 is the 60k skipped.
i just restored a 91. and it had 20 stoppers.

1993 Geo Storm |Transmission


There is no way they would leave you stuck with the engine!! However, the odds are that it should fit. First check the flywheel or flex plate. [Not sure if its a auto or manual.] If they bolt on, your are into installing the engine! Good Luck with it! Frankster016
