1992 Geo Storm 1.6My daughters 92 GEO Storm has died suddenly without any real reason. The first time was right after we bought it. It had sat for a while I thought maybe moisture in the fuel tank, Vapor lock? It started up and ran a little rough for weeks. Than it did it again. It started up but shortly died. The gas gauge looked off so I out gas in it and it was fine again... This weekend I did Plugs and Plug wires, High octane gas and found one of the plugs was actually broken. Now it runs Beautiful, but died again yesterday. Now it wont start at all. Its getting gas and turning over but no turnover???
I'm thinking Coil?? or ???? Any other ideas?

|im having similiar problems with my 1.6l 92 storm|
We have replaced the coil and ignition module uder the distrib cap and still nothing... but
If you are not getting spark at the plugs next check to see if the coil is giving a spark to the distibuter... if it is then check the contacts on the roter in the distibuter.. if it is not then .. you have to chck to see if the ignition module is getting input from the computer... and if not.. try to get new ignit module
in my car we did that and still no input so we checked the fuel injectors to see if they are getting a pulse... and i am not... so now iam thinking of replacing the ECM Computer.. MAN WHAT A Pain..
If you want email me and tell me exactly what your doing and i will step you through your work on her car.
|i have 1992 geo storm will not stay running sprayed it with starting and it runs, it getting fuel up to the motor.not sure if the injectors not working, is there a fuse fo the injectors|

|Try checking the coil around the cam shaft - it's a magnetic coil that senses that the cam is actually turning. If it doesn't think the cam is turning, it'll tell the computer to shut off fuel and/or spark (in the event of an accident, it'll shut off the fuel and/or spark to prevent an explosion). Another one of those wonderful U.S. Government mandated gizmos to cause headaches and empty wallets for the home mechanic. Had same problem (intermittently dying then died completely) and it was this coil.|

Engine was completely rebuilt in '97 it has only been driven about 7000 miles. The car has always been garage kept and only taken out on periodic runs since '99. It would be a fine car for someone who wants an engine that has been modified and a car that handles well. All of the receipts and notes of the work that has been done on the car.
The block has been bored .020" over stock and crower rods and JE pistons w/total seal rings were added to achieve a 9:1 compression ratio. The head studs were enlarged and strengthened and the head was done with a 3-5-angle valve job and a custom cam from Guide performance. The cam products max power at about 7800 rpm. The stock computer was changed to an Accell DFI system with a 300+ ignition. A Hotshot intake with K & N filter was added for breathing as well as a custom 2.25" exhaust with a Flowmaster muffler.
The goal was to product about 220 HP at the flywheel with the modifications. Plans were to continue to modify the car with a Garrett T04E/T3 hybrid turbo. After adding the turbo was and the fuel system was done HP may increase to about 400HP running a max boost at around 22 PSI. Notes indicate that there may be other modifications need to reach the 400 HP besides the addition of the turbo.
Below are some of the modifications done to the car:
Ø Enkei Zoku 16” x 7” wheels with FALKIN low profile tires
Ø Accell 300+ digital ignition and coil kits ignition
Ø batch-firing, programmable aftermarket fuel injection
and ignition computer
Ø big bore throttle body
Ø block bored for Zephyr dish pistons 3.169
Ø new rods, rings and bearings, guide performance
Ø new Clutch Masters clutch
Ø Nology hot wires
Ø R/C engineering 550cc injectors
Ø front and rear GAB adjustable struts
Ø tinted windows
Ø All notes on modifications and receipts available with

|I have a 1992 geo storm. We just replaced the head gasket, and it will start and idle just fine, but when i put it in gear it automatically dies, unless ur giving it gas when u put it in gear. It will move around the yard but when u let off the gas it dies. any ideas on what might be causing the problem?|
|I have a 1992 Geo Storm, sometimes the transmission gets stuck in 3rd gear but you can stick in another gear so basically you are in 2 gears so its stuck, if you keep moving the stick through the pattern it will eventuallly reset itself.|
So my question is: is it the linkage or the transmission and what needs to be fixed, Linkage bushings of what??
Thanks for any help
|I have a 92 Geo Storm is beautiful but i need a part. it's the thermostat housing, any body where I can find this part. I searched on the INTERNET and no luck. Please HELP|
|Had the dying for no reason problem with my '92 storm 1.6 l.|
Sometimes would start immediately, some times has to wait an hor or a day. Even replaced the ecm (brain).
IT WAS THE IGNITOR. Try that...betcha that's your problem...I heard it was common.

I had this same problem. Turns out I had a bad injector. The 1&3 injector are on the same circuit. The 2 & 4 share a circuit. If one goes bad it knocks the other one too. Don'r cheapout and only replace the bad injector. Do all four. This is not a technically complicated job, but they've got those injector so buried (GSI) that it took me several days and layers of skin to replace them and had to disassmble the entire air intake to do the job.
|I have a 92 geo storm 4 cl 1.6 l. When sitting in park the car will run high rpm. When you try to gas it the car will not accelerate but the rpm meter will rise.|

|"REPLY TO KLM"|
mY 1990 GEO STORM GSI HAS THE SAME PROBLEM, ONLY 2 CYLINDERS WORKING. CYLINDERS 1 AND 3 ARE NOT OPERATING PROPERLY. I HAVE REPLACED IGNITION COIL, PICKUP COIL, IGNITION MODULE, PLUGS AND WIRES. I HAVE EVEN CHECKED OUT THE WIRING TO MAKE SURE THAT NOTHING WAS LOOSE. EVERYTHING WAS IN TACK AS FAR AS I COULD TRACE. I EVEN THOUGHT MAYBE AT FIRST THAT IT COULD BE MY INJECTORS BUT I SWAPPED INJECTORS 1 AND 3 ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS WITH 2 AND 4 AND I HAD THE SAME OUTCOME ONLY THE OPPOSITTE INJECTORS WERE DISABLED AND THEN 1 AND 3 WERE WORKING FINE. THINKING MAYBE COULD BE MY ECM. I READ UP ON IT AND THERE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A RECALL ON THESE MODEL ECM'S BUT ISUZU MOTORS AND GM WOULD NOT COMPLY ONLY TO STOP PRODUCTION AFTER THE 1993 MODEL STORM. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS TYPE SENERIO? PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANYONE HAS A 1990 STORM GSI ECM WITH OEM#
