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.

SOURCE: 1993 Geo Prizm lack of horsepower

Clean the mass airflow sensor (or replace it outright) and change your oxygen sensor. Those are very big contributors to fuel mileage. Also, verify that the new plugs are gapped correctly.

SOURCE: Adjusting the headlights on a '97 Geo Prizm

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

97 geo prizm mis firing

1. Check resistance of the spark plug high tension cords. (approx. 6 KOhms to 25 K Ohms with DMM on the range adjusted to 10K or 20K whatever range is available on the meter).
2. Check the distributor cap and rotor (if it is distributor type ign. system, other wise CMP and CKP sensors).
3. Adjust the spark plug gap to 0.7 mm - 0.8 mm.
4. Check the valve tappet clearance. (0.25 - 0.30 mm)
5. Check the valve timing.
6. Check the MAP sensor.

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?

Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

I'm working on a 97 geo prizm and need to find the ignition relay,I rplaced the ignition switch and have no power getting to the switch,there is power at the harness and I can bypass the switch an

If you can jump it at the switch and get it to start, then the ignition relay must be working. It is hard to tell from your post but I think you are using power from another source to do this? I am thinking you have a blown fuse on the wire the furnishes power to you ignition switch.

There is oil on the spark plug on my 1991 geo prism what could it be?

If it is on the cylinder side of the plug you have oil leaking into your cylinder, which is going to be a problem with the head gasket or a valve seal. If it is on the wire side then you most likely have a valve cover leak.

I have a 97 geo prism with a gas leak

Where is the gas leak? At the back of the car, under the hood, or???
It could be a rusted gas line, a rusted gas tank, etc. You need to do some detective work to determine where the leak is. Do not park the car inside a garage. Fumes can build up and explode when starting the car or just turning on a light in the garage. Be careful not to cause a spark, or allow anyone to smoke nearby until you fix it.

1995 geo prizm lsi starting problems.

There is a long list of possible causes, You would have to check into each individual one.

1.) Failing fuel pump.
2.) Bad valve seat/seal
3.) Sticking valve
4.) Timing is off, Reset timing to 10* BTDC
5.) Clogged fuel injector(s)
6.) Your new ignition coil (as im assuming thats what you meant by "Igniter") may be faulty.
7.) Wiring to the new ignition coil may be faulty
8.) Spark plug wires not firmly in place.
9.) Faulty Distributor pickup coil and/or wiring harness/wiring.

The list goes on and on, Some are more likely then others. Personally, from experience (having owned 4 95 geo prizms myself in my lifetime) i would go with the clogged injectors, Fuel pump, and distributor pickup/wiring in that order. Those engines last quite a long time when properly cared for, An internal engine problem (Although possible) is unlikely in my opinion.
