Aug 24, 2005 (7:06 am)
1995 Geo Prizm 126,000 miles on it (Just broke in) Every Morning regardless of the outside tempature I have to almost totally depress the gas pedal and then play with it to get it to run. After it is warmed up it runs fine. Acts like it has a Bubble in it. I had the heat sensor replaced last week. Fuel Filter? If so where is that located, Gas Cap? Acts almost like it is vapor locking until it gets warm

It should say LSI on the car somewhere, I would think. The Geo's I've seen have "Prizm" on one side of the rear, and "LSI" on the opposite corner. The Chevy's say "Prizm LSI" together.

If airbag removal is required to get to the horn switch, you shouldn't attempt it at home. It is probably the most complicated interior equipment in your car, and it takes many hours by professionals to do it right. Shops charge hundreds for the work, and sometimes leave the airbag disconnected to save hours of labor without telling you. You want your airbag to be as reliable as it can be, so pick a reputable shop for the work. I haven't checked my repair manual yet but you should check yours and see if there is a way to get to the horn switch without removing the airbag. You can do your brakes and minor engine work, but airbag is a different beast I am told.
#931 of 1447 93 Geo Help
Sep 07, 2005 (9:25 am)
Hi there, im looking into buying a 93 geo prism. But its not running real well at this point.It does belong to a family member, he bought it 2 weeks ago and the car ran fine, 70 on the freeway with no problem at all. Now he decides to wash the car with the hood up and the car not running and now the car is all messed up.. He replaced spark plugs,wires cap and still the same, They hooked something up to it(sorry im not very car intelligent) and they found that the 4th plug was not working or was working very little.. It seems like the car is not really getting enough gas either..misses badley and stalls also...any suggestions?

Also have a 2000 prism that doesn't run well when first started. Have had it tested by a mechanic, but no solutions found. He did find that the problem stops when the engine heats up to a certain point. Anyone else have any ideas?

Coolant temperature sensor (NOT thermostat) senses the engine temperature through the coolant temp. Engine temp info is used to adjust the gas/air mixture. This is basically an electronic choke and if it is not working properly it can produce the symtom you described.
