  • Bosch Air Filters are designed with a high number of pleats and a high velocity cellulose cured media to combat against outside particles from entering your engine. This media is designed with a filtering efficiency of 98%. The filters are also processed with a high-quality polyurethane seal so there is no loss of filter surface. This particular seal also provides elasticity and sealing performance while protecting against water and heat. Bosch Air Filters work to ensure only the cleanest air for strong engine protection and high-performance.

1991 Geo Prizm stutters during acceleration

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From deuce22deuce on 1991 Geo Prizm stutters during acceleration

Hello. I'm having problems with my 91 Geo Prizm 1.6L, 90,000 miles. I recently had the timing belt, catalytic converter and the pipe that goes from the catalytic converter to the engine replaced. About a month after I had the work done, my car started stuttering during acceleration. It doesn't stutter within the first few minutes of driving, but it does after that and seems to get worse the longer I drive. The car hasn't stalled out because of this problem, but sometimes feels like it might. And it seems to run fine before and after the stutter. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Response From deuce22deuce

Nevermind, I'll just take it to a professional and post what was wrong in here. lol One post all day.

Response From way2old Top Rated Answer

Sorry for the delay. We also have full time jobs (usually more hours working than off)and families to be with. How long since the vehicle has been tuned up? Fuel and air filters changed? Look at the common things first. Let us know and we will try to help. We might not be as fast as you want us to be, but we truly do care.

Response From deuce22deuce

Look man. I wasn't trying to be mean. I just thought there would be more people on here. I didn't realize it was such a small community. But thanks for the advice. I'll just take it to the mechanic and have it looked at by an expert. It's pretty hard to get advice on a forum considering how little I know about cars. I apoligize if you think I somehow insulted you. Have a nice life!

Response From way2old

Wasn't insulted. Just explaining why there was not a faster response.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Deuce22Deuce : You were seen and I put your post on watch quickly when you first posted. Just know that I didn't think I had anything earth shattering to suggest so I let it sit and wait for perhaps another to come by. There are several of regulars here and the whole world can watch and suggest away at will.

This forum is active and tended to as best we can. It would hurt if a regular makes a post basically saying "I don't know" or something as other regulars might see that it's already attended to and not persue it or even look in.

As a regular I try to see what topics haven't been responded to first and check the ones with responses last. Know that it's a lot just to read all the "unread" posts that come thru this site and even when we have the time which varies by our own real world schedules we can get caught up deep in one situation taking up lots of time.

Hey - there's only so much a forum for car issues can do and only so many eyes to watch. At this post 32 folks have already seen your first post so it didn't get ignored.......

sudden drop in MPG in 92 Geo Metro?

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From richard123 on sudden drop in MPG in 92 Geo Metro?

This is a 3 cyl engine. Car has consistently gotten 35-36 mpg. I took it on a longer trip ( about 200 miles) and got 39. The very next tank mpg dropped to 27-28. The air filter is new. The EGR valve is working. It moves on acceleration and also I removed it and verifiied both pressure and vacuum with it removed. I also test the oxygen sensor and it was varying up and down as it should. I can not say whether the speed is normal or not. I don't want to replace anything unnecessarily. I also looked around for loose wires or leaky hoses and found nothing. I want my old mileage back. Just when gas prices dropped a little my cost went up. Car drives perfectly normal. What are likely bets.

Response From Mr.scotty Top Rated Answer

No check engine light right?
Has it had a full maintenance service done in the past 15-25,000 miles?
Have you checked your tire pressure?
Buying gas at a different place?

97 Geo Metro stalls and won't start

Question From ke012600 on 97 Geo Metro stalls and won't start

1997 Geo Metro LSI / 4-cylinder / 1.3L 2Dr Hatchback / Only 87,5XX miles

Geo started stalling out and wouldn't start. Let it sit for a couple days, then it fired up and drove about 30-45 minutes, stalled out and died. Had it towed back. Changed the battery which had a dead cell, air filter which was pretty dirty, and the fuel filter which was likely somewhat dirty. Started up and ran like a charm for a day and a half. Died again, had it towed back. Day later, it started right up but idled low. Ran for a bit then died again. Towed it back. Changed the fuel filter (which I vow to NEVER do again). Drove it in circles around the block for about 5 minutes, seemed to work great. Next day, fired right up, no low idle, sounded great. Drove it about 20 miles and it died again. Had it towed back. (Insurance company now hates me.) Took the ignition coil and ignition module to Auto Zone and both tested OK. Took the pickup coil off and checked the ohms and it measures a resistance of about 200. Haynes manual says it should test between 140-190 so I doubt that's the problem. I'm at a loss for what to try next. Mechanic friend says the spark plugs would make it die right away OR not start, as opposed to driving until it warms up before dying. ??
I'm a female and I know nothing about cars, so if someone could give me detailed ideas of what to do next, it'd be greatly appreciated!!!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

YOU said you know nothing about cars, so............ With a problem like this that can behave you or someone is going to have to catch it in the act and determine what is missing most likely either spark or fuel delivery. That mean you could need stuff at the ready just to narrow it down never mind the fix.

Not sure if insurance is going to like another tow but if you can risk the run to get a good code reading it might lead to the problem. If when it ran the check engine light was on there's definitely a code or more stored that could help a lot,

T

Response From ke012600

Check engine light not on, but had it read anyway. No codes available.
I know it's either fuel problem or ignition problem, but through everything I've already done to it, I still can't narrow down the problem. I've been with it every time it's died and I know all the symptoms. What exactly should I be looking for that will be a determinable factor?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

This is tricky if by yourself. You would need even a basic spark tester or in line test light showing that spark is going to even one spark plug when cranking and not starting. The cranking and looking underhood alone can be done but another gadget to crank while under the hood.

If you don't hear fuel pump prime up with just key to run - should give a quick buzz then quit. If you are stuck on a busy street forget hearing it Been there done that.

Other for lack of fuel would be to spray some starting fluid into throttle body which requires knowing how to do that, reassemble the parts so they are still spark arrestors and if it makes a quick run and stalls you know you lack fuel but not why yet.

It's not funny as you are still on the side of a road or someplace you don't want to be. A higher end code reading may be needed. Even without a code or check engine light that had been on there could be a code pending.

This stinks. There are more tools and tests that probably will not prove a thing unless you catch it. Same if you take it to a shop and tell the story it might just behave perfectly. No harm in asking if a shop will take this on and just let it run hoping it will happen or drive it till it does IF THERE ARE NO OTHER CLUES AS TO WHY that are found.

Do you have a shop or tech that will take this on? I hate to suggest tossing parts that are on a maybe list that could do this unless dirt cheap but you may hear that as the suggested route and still not sure until is doesn't pull this crap again for quite a while,

Response From ke012600 Top Rated Answer

Did a basic spark test as described by my mechanic friend by inserting a long screwdriver into the spark plug socket and then the metal side of the screwdriver toward the engine. All 4 spark plug sockets had quick orangish sparks.

The fuel pump does engage with the key on. It was engaging even prior to changing the fuel pump out, but since the pump was changed, it is now louder and obviously stronger. No problems there.

Spraying carbeurator cleaner onto the throttle body (my neighbor did that) made it start but as soon as the spraying stopped, it died.

I'm not looking for anyone to say change this part, change that part so I can nickel and dime myself to death. But if there are parts that anyone can suggest that may be part of the problem, that will give me more to research and hopefully more arrows to my answers. Avoiding taking it to a shop because I haven't got $800 in my back pocket and even if I did, I'd rather do the things myself that are possible in my driveway. I'm a relatively intelligent girl, so I have no problem researching this stuff and figuring out how to do it.

Thanks for all your help so far!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Seems you are now dealing with the lack of fuel delivery. Forget chasing spark for now. Noisy new pump? Hmmm. Pressure test that at fuel rail both just key on run and when engine running. The tester should hold that pressure for a decent time when car is shut off.

Noisy doesn't mean it's working properly or not with the fuel pump. If notably noisy it may need to be replaced again and not even the problem at hand!

I hear you with the nickle and dime thing. It's now 50s, 100s and more. Basic car but the test tools and plain hand tools to have enough could probably buy a new one and that would be at a minimum. Not hard to spend more on some tools than the job would cost to send out but you probably can isolate it. About now I say fuel pressure is dropping off - just the guess du jour for now,

1990 Geo Prizm fuel issue

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From dwalker17 on 1990 Geo Prizm fuel issue

Hey gentlemen and women,

It appears I am having a issue with my 1990 Geo Prizm, 95% sure its something to do with the engine getting fuel, but I could be wrong.

Basically what is going on is the engine sounds and feels like a lawnmower most of the time. When I give it gas, it kind of gurgles and pops at me. (The same sort of sound and feeling when your tank is empty and you are running on fumes essentially)

The car will idle (not at consistent rpms though) it grumbles, then out of nowhere it will sound just fine for a few seconds.

While driving it, when I am putting the pedal down until about half way, it sounds the same (and feels like my horsepower is cut in half). Then once I put my foot to the floor the engine gets enough gas to go like normal.

I originally thought my engine was shot, but as previously stated, when it gets enough fuel it runs like normal.

Also thought it might be exhaust, but everything is nice and tidy down there.

Am I looking at a fuel filter? Or a fuel pump? Any other possibility's that could be at play?

The air filter is nice and clean, oil/filter changed 2000 miles ago with synthetic.

Thanks!

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Check engine light on?

You could connect a fuel pressure gauge and monitor fuel pressure while the problem is occurring. You could also test fuel flow volume/time.

With that data you should be able to determine if you have a fuel delivery problem or not.

Engine not Starting after Overhaul

Question From LostinmyGeo on Engine not Starting after Overhaul

I just finished putting back my 96 Geo Metro, 3 cylinder 1L engine, after getting it overhauled. I put the head and the block together myself. I am not able to get it started. I get a lot of fuel coming out of the Throttle Body injector's top (where the air filter would sit). I am thinking this is fuel that should be going to the cylinders. Could this be the reason? Anybody has an idea on why that would happen?

Response From steve01832 Top Rated Answer

You should start by checking the valve timing. Make sure the cam and crank timing marks are where they should be at #1 TDC. If they are, pop the distributor cap and make sure the rotor is pointing at #1 terminal of the cap.
