1992 Geo Storm problems

I bought a fixer upper that has cost me over 4K already. The car still is NOT reliable. The last 3 times that I drove it it died and left me stranded. I have taken it to the dealer, each time costing me about 1K. Now, the check engine light comes on after the car is running (Sitting in my driveway) after about 3 minutes and the motor smells and feels so hot that it might catch fire. I have invested way too much money in this car to walk away from it. I am determined to end up with a safe reliable car.
Is there a check list that I could go through to check for things that I can do without resorting to taking it back to the dealer? I would REALLY appreciate your help. Thank you. Brent

My 1992 Geo Storm wont pass smog because of emission problem what can I do and how much will it cost

hard to say as to why it did not pass, but it sounds like you have a problem, most emissions are caused by too much hydrocarbins coming out the tail pipe, new cat converter,

Does 1992 geo storm gsi have timing belt or timing chain

great question. but confuses <STORM (an ISUZU) with METRO, Swift.
ill assume the STORM is correct and the 1.8l too.
that engine is a ISUZU Real engine,
and is called the
4XF1 ,see facts below.
now the cam answer.

in the uSA this car is the GSI model with 1.8L
see last link for your answer. below. GM official page.
you can also see your cam in the 2nd link below.
the engine is INTERFERENCE. so if the belt snaps, it bends valves
just like all HONDAs do.\

wiki facts.
The larger 1.8 L 4XF1 DOHC replaced the 4XE1 in North America and produces 140 hp (104 kW) and 125 ft/lb (169 Nm) of torque. This engine was used in the 1992-1993 Geo Storm GSi, in the 1992 Isuzu Stylus RS, and in the Asuna Sunfire. In Japan it was installed in the Isuzu Piazza, where it had 150 PS (110 kW).

If all the other gears operate in their appropriate position in the car, then the transmission needs rebuilt, or at least repaired - which will cost the same. Rick
