No, it should make a difference if you replace the plugs and wires when it comes to your timing belt. It will not effect the timing belt at all.

How to change AC belt for geo prizm

what year, and what engine they had 2 engines.???????

General , all cars....
loosen the tension pivot .
depends on year, but one of the devices that share the A/C compressor.
has a belt tensions mechanism on it, you loosen that, and off the belt.
you can see the belt. it only lands on 2 or 3 places, just look.
one of the 3 (not crank) has a tension-er.
end. general statement.:
the problem in owning any prizm is the motor is really a toyota.
A GM/Toyota (madness, thing, IMO)
and GM is not all that helpful, huh? see them selling books.?
to work on this car , GEO (GM) prizm FSM free , you might consider
that it uses one of 3 toyota engtines.
and if lucky , has the same A/C parts.
post year, and engine and or vin number so we can look it up.
in shop we just glance at it and cant do that here.
consider, buying used, shop manual.
go to ebay , type, Geo Prizm shop manual and bingo.
for near free $20 no more guessing....
my motto, is, why work blind?
good day.

Is the Prizm an interference type engine that would be seriously damaged if the timing belt breaks?

there are 3 engines, all made by toyota.
if it has a belt, some engines, are not free running.
find your engines. then go to gates belt do com and look it up
and see last column, "interference'?
or join a toy forum and ask there, after finding the engine code.
3 motors.
my prizm dump.
joint venture, GM/toyota with 3 engine used.
1.8L or 1.6L
toy engine, 4aFE, 7AFE or 4AG
open hood look
or use the GM RPO tag
or Use the VIN to find motor used.
for docs?

I need a picture diagram of a 93 geo prizm pulley system

alldata dot com
pulley? you mean the belt routing, is it V belt or Serp.?
how many belts? (big clue that)
this is a toyota engine 1 of 4 types
the used more than one.
which is yours.
engines options, not many cars have only 1 engine.
so first post the vin or the toy engine name.
or a photo

1.6L all 4L GE and FE, and GE 105 or 130HP.
in 93 the option of
a driver airbag, and a new 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine optional on LSi trim.

when working on any engine, first ID the engine.
if posting, tell the helper the VIN or the Engine ID>
all GM cars have a RPO tag on the glove box door.
this too, can be decoded, but I can not.
there are the options.
sorry i dont have a PRIZM, there are not that many on the road.
you could join a PRIZM forum. that would make this far more easy.
