I'm not 100% sure on a 95. But you can follow the fuel line from gas tank to the fuel injecters. A lot of cars have them about half way under the car on driver's side. I have never had a Fuel filter go bad in any car or truck but i'm sure they do.
Check your plugs/plug wires/dist/rotor. Also check Fuel injectors. You can use a stetho scope or a hose & listen for a light clicking sound at each injector. There working ok if here the clicking sound. You can go to Autozone & find a Haynes repair book & find what you want about your car.
I would recommend buying this manuel. But they will let you open new one & look in.
Hope this helps.
#1153 of 1443 PO 420 Engine Code--Catalytic Converter Need Replacing?
Aug 12, 2007 (3:50 am)
My Check Engine Light came on, and the OBD II scanner diagnosed "PO 420 Catalyst Effeciency Below Threshold Bank 1." The Haynes Manual doesn't have much to say about Catalytic Converters except how to visually inspect and replace them. Does this mean I'm almost certain to have to replace the catalytic converter? How much has this cost other folks in the past at a garage? (I'm not a confident welder.) Thanks!

Does the clutch make any noise at all when engaging or releasing at anytime. If it does when & what does it sound like. When speedometer drops to 0 does the engine speed increase or decrease or stay the same.
It should be a clutch problem. There are several components that make up the clutch system & several items need checked. Best guess is your clutch plate is worn or damaged. This plate can also be called Clutch disc or driven plate. I would take it to a place who specializes in this area. Search for a station that does work on clutch and/or driveaxles. A broken or worn motor or transaxle mount can cause some weird things also.
Hope this helps.

There is no sound or noise and the engine will decrease instantly and then not increase over 30. so i have to turn it off for about 15 minutes then it usually will start running ok for a while but this happens frequently and i have had several mechanics look it over and drive it when its acting up and their all dumb founded as to whats wrong.
#1157 of 1443 1994 geo prizm valve noise

I have a 94 prizm, 1.6L auto. recently I have noticed a noise around 2200rpm coming from the valve area, I was wondering if there are any common issues with the valves/spring/cams/ect.

If you dont have an emissions check where you live, look for a test pipe, and just bolt it in place.
