There could be many reasons why a 2001 Chevrolet Prizm will not start. A few reasons could be a bad starter, bad plugs, no gas, or a bad sensor.

Dealer? Auto Zone? Salvage yard? E-Bay?

CFI ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking.

If it's leaking transmission fluid, could be a bad pump seal. If it's leaking engine oil, could be a bad oil filter, leaking valve cover gasket, leaking intake manifold gasket, leaking oil pressure sender, leaking distributor gasket.

No, a clogged heater core will not make it overheat. A leaking heater core will.

The fluid could be too low to allow the transmission to shift. Depending on where the fluid leak is, the leak could be through a bad solenoid or soaking electrical connections, stopping the transmission from shifting.

Sounds like a vacuum hose could be broken and the vent louvers are not being actuated.

Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair, due to possibility of serious injury. Take it to a professional for repair.

Your marker could be leaking from a small pinhole in your frame, or it could be leaking out of the CO2 adapter itself. you may want to have it checked, if it is a electric marker, you could freeze your circuit board.

Your engine may have a leaking hose connection or a leaking gasket at the water outlet. It could also be a leaking hose.

Knowing the YEAR would help answer your question a little better. Check these things : Water pump, INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, And there could be a heater hose fitting screewed into the front left corner of the intake that could be leaking. That's you standing in front of the engine looking at it. There is also a Freeze plug that is hidden on the left front side of the timing cover that could be leaking.

It could be leaking from a number of places. Some could be a simple fix and others not so simple. Need more info as to where it is leaking.

User Avatar

If it is CFI, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel. If the check engine light is on, have the codes read.

Check your oil it could be a lifter rattle. But you should always have it diagnosed by a qualified professional like at a dealership and get an estimate. I have a 99 and an 01 that does the same thing and was told that it was a tensioner issue on both.

Heater core, windshield, or a clogged cowl drain line. If the liquid tastes sweet it is coolant and the heater core is leaking. Heater core must be replaced. If not, it is one of the other 2 problems.
