Pressure test the fuel pump, or check to make sure there is power going to it with the key on.
was the distributor removed??....if not, then just loosen, and turn it a 1/4" at a time, testing it after each turn by starting it. as long as it was not removed then this should get you there. once started only turn it till the engine smoothes out on idle. as for the fuel, there should be atleast 35 to 40psi continous, and any less will need a new pump installed.

    but I have no spark at all. And I cannot hear the fuel pump when I turn the key off and on. Is there a inersha switch some where? Please help all I did was change the oil. Thank you

    ford has this switch, in the right lower kick panel, but I dont belive this chevy has this switch.
    if there is a sensor in the bottom of the oil pan, then this could cause it not to start or get fuel, make sure the oil is full, or try jiggling around on all the harnesss, it may be a bad/loose connection.

Why will my 1995 Geo Metro not start?


You have a pick-up coil in the distributor that tells the computer when to fire the injectors, I would guess this might be your problem, you are getting fuel to the injectors, but not into the engine.

It maybe an intake manifold or vacuum hose leak. It can also be valve clearance out of specification.

Where is the emergency shut off in a 1995 geo prizm?


All cars, EFI. (some have 3 fuse to operate ECU/spark/ fuel) check em yet?
check power to pump 12v cranking?
no, ? 12v, or 6v? (6v or near is corroded wires /conns)
check power (12v) from fuel pump relay cranking, got 12v there.
if yes , the the path is broken to the rear ) (inertial switch?, not in 95)
if not,12v now, the FP relay is bad or ECU is not turning it on.
if 12v is across the FP relay coil the ECU is working.
if 12v is across this relay, and output is dead, that is a bad relay
or the FI use feeding it is blown.
btw #1 all cars cut fuel (INJ) when spark is detected bad. (ecu)
btw#2 some (software) cut the fuel pump for same reasons.
btw#3, most cars, only activate the FP relay for 3 seconds key on, each time. and some cars only cranking, and running.
all these facts, need to be known to make progress, in EFI.
and more.

I have 1995 geo tracker. cranks over but doesnt start. would it be coil or fuel problem?


You need to conduct tests to be sure where the trouble is.
1. Spark test: remove the number one spark-plug, and hold it to the engine block. then ask a friend to crank up the engine..
2. If the system is good, you should see steady blue sparks. If you don't, then you would have to work on your ignition system.
3. Fuel test: get a can of 'starting fluid' or the common 'choke and throttle-body cleaner'.
4. Unbolt the clamp holding the air-intake hose to the throttle-body. Pull back the hose to expose the inside of the throttle-body.
5. Spray a good quantity of the cleaner into the body.
6. Re-attach the air-intake hose, and try to crank up the engine again.
7. It will show some hesitation, but keep cranking until it fires up, and able to idle.
8. If the throttle-body and the manifold are dirty, the choke cleaner should help.
9. Please get back to me if necessary.

Rolls over wont start


could be a number of things......engines need spark fuell and air to run.....one of three in your case is not working correctly
try disconnecting fuel line from engine side of feul sending unit and turn over ....get a bucket it could get messy....if you see fuel then check spark...to check spark leave fuel disconnected....and pull out one plugs leave wire on plug and touch plug threads to ground (anyground..eg..alternator bracket)use vice grips but not too tight ..then turn it over again and see if plug sparks......if spark and fuel are present ....then ur into crank sensors or cam sensors these determine when spark is present.....

95 geo turns over but wont start,has spark


has spark but is it getting fuel to the fuel bar find the cap-screw and unscrew it and using a towel and a ball point pen depress it to see if fuel disperses make sure when you turn the key to the on position you hear the fuel pump working should be a slight humming noise ..otherwise it may also be a clogged fuel filter as well ! just a few areas to check please let me know what you find
