  • distributor cap or fuel line?? - 1995 Geo Prizm
    By -

    Ive been dealing with an ongoing problem with my 1995 Geo Prizm that is beginning to make driving no fun! The problem? The car turns over and over, but will not start. Eventually it will turn over and start, and then its o.k for about 3-4 days. Just checking under the hood I saw sparks off the distributor cap. Could this be the problem? Does the distributor cap prevent the car from starting?

  • Ok, but could be better - 1997 Geo Prizm
    By -

    Left outer CV joint/boot failed. Starter failed. Heater core leaked ($800). Wheel covers flew off. Tape deck failed. The 3-speed automatic transmission is beginning to exhibit vagueness/hunting on deceleration/coasting. Overall, this vehicle is a decent, get- round-town appliance. On surface streets its acceleration, handling, braking, and noise/vibration are acceptable. The car is hard pressed to cruise above 65 mph with considerable engine noise. Fuel economy is about 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The engine is tight and does not burn oil. The car has passed every emissions test.

  • Cant give it up... - 1992 Geo Prizm

    This car has been unbelieveable. I purchased it for $800 in 2/03 with 127k. It now has 144k and runs like a top. I have to add oil every now and then and the high fan speed is not working but besides that this car has been a money saver. I want to purchase so many new cars but with no monthly payment and such low insurance I think I may run it till it dies.

    In case you didnt know, this is basically a Toytoa Corolla. This is a fine car, and Ive enjoyed many miles with it. Ive driven from NC to FL to NV to VA and lots of places in between, without a hitch. I do all my own maintanence, and it is very easy to work on, and the parts arent expensive.

  • Personal Problems - 1995 Geo Prizm

    Replaced the starter once, but I am also now on my second alternator. I sure hope this is not an ongoing issue but only a problem with the first replacement. I would really like to run this thing into the ground to squeeze every penny out of it. Its sort of ironic that the only parts that fail on this car are the American onces. Engine runs perfect, but the electrical system and the interior are falling apart.

    I have owned my car for 8 11 years now and I am very pleased. No major problems and very good gas milage. Wish it was more stylish.

  • Financial burden - 1993 Geo Prizm
    By -

    I have had this vechile for 4 years exactly. The first year I had no problems but by the second year I needed a brand new alternator, then recently got a whole new brake system and the final straw was after spending all this money on maintaining this vechile the engine blows on me-- now only has 2 cylinders. Save yourself the headache. I wish I did.
