the clutch is really easy to install and the timing belt is not a problem if its shot
The 1993 Geo Storm is not an interference motor, because my belt just broke,(Nov 2005) and I got the same question answered on the following website: "www.nutzandboltz.org". My daughter's 1990 Geo Storm timing belt broke while she was driving it. She tried to start the engine but it would not run. We were told that it was an interference motor and that the motor was now shot. Being a little skeptical of the "experts" I put a new timing belt on and the engine started and has run fine for several months (clutch just went out). So much for the experts, by the way how ard is it to change the clutch? Thanks M in Omaha
If you have the 1.6 Liter SOHC engine the answer is YES. This is an Interference engine, and if the belt breaks engine damage will occur. Belt should be replaced every 30,000 miles. I know that sounds absurd, but that is the factory recommendation. If you have the 1.8 Liter DOHC engine, no damage will occur. It is NOT an interference engine. Replace the belt every 60,000 miles.If you have the 1.6 Liter SOHC engine the answer is YES. This is an Interference engine, and if the belt breaks engine damage will occur.

Did it run before?
the alternator and belt are located at the bottom of the engine on the passenger side looking at the timing belt side
Answer: The ignition timing on a 1990 Geo Storm is 10 degrees BTDC. This applies to both the SOHC and DOHC 1.6L engines.
it breaks it apart
Rain envelops the house
To set the timing on a 1991 Geo Storm, run the engine until normal driving temperatures. Turn off the engine. With a jumping wire, connect terminals 1 and 3 on the ALDL connector. (look under the compartment on the passenger side, it's a small box). Connect a timing light to the #1 spark plug wire and loosen the distributor cap. Start the engine, letting the engine idle. Aim the timing light at the timing belt cover, the white notch on the crankshaft pulley should line up with the 10 degree mark BDTC on the timing cover. Turn the distributor to line up the marks (if you had previously marked the cap to where the rotor is pointing before removing) After the adjustment is made, make sure the distributor cap is has not turned and tighten up the bolt. Take the jumper wire off the ALDL connector and then turn the engine off. By Buneelee
Timing Belt.... Check all your belts.
I think that after you put on the timing belt alighned properly,that your distrib. makes up the diff. when you adjust it. Jim
No, Necro Fleur's 'If...you can' effect is not one that can miss the timing.
WELL IT DEPENDS WEATHER OR NOT IT IS A INTERFEARENCE ENGINE OR NOT. ONCE THE BELT BROKE A VALVE COULD OF HIT A PISTON WHICH WOULD OF SHEARD A KEY on the cam or the crankshaft gear that held it in time.( this would be an interfearence engine)...an noninterfearence engine should'nt hit anything inside the engine when the timimg belt break's. so it would be some other problem.

There should be an under hood sticker with this information. Also a haynes or other such manual you can obtain at a parts store will have this information. On my 91 storm with 1.6L sohc there are two plugs on the passenger side inside behind the kick panel. One is orange and one is white. With the engine off connect a jumper between the two outside connections on the white plug. Start engine and check timing. Engine should be warm and at correct idle.
Check that you got the timing marks right. If you recheck the timing belt work & it's o/k then start with the basics, Is the fuel pump running when you turn thekey? whats the fuel pressure? Is fuel getting to engine? do you have spark?
Replacing the water pump entails removing the accessory belts, removing the value cover, timing belt cover, the right engine mount and mount bracket, the timing belt and crankshaft pulley and then the water pump. While your that far into the dis assembly you should replace the timing belt, the cam and crankshaft seal.
starting from left to right on spark plugs you have 1234 1 goes to 1 - 2 goes to 4 on distrubitor -3 goes to 2 - and4 goes to 3
Whenever it passes over and breaks apart I would say.
You ask a professional for help.
Reception tends to decrease during a storm due to interference between satellites. The clouds block satellites making it difficult for them to pick up the radio waves being sent out.
The Haynes manual claims it's 10 degrees BTDC. Also, the really correct timing should be listed on the emissions sticker inside of the hood. 10 degrees BTDC matches what my 1991 Manual Trans Storm's hood says (and seems to run well at). The timing scale is on the timing belt cover down by the crankshaft pulley (at the other end of the power steering pump belt). There is a small notch in the crankshaft pulley, on the side closest to the timing scale, that is easier to see if you put some whiteout fluid in the notch. Before setting the timing, let the engine warm to operating temperature, and short pins 1 and 3 of the ALDL connector (located above and to the right of your passenger's feet) with a paperclip to prevent the ECM from advancing the timing while you are setting it. Don't forget to remove the paperclip when you're done!
club penguin storm is a cheat engine similar to CP trainer some people use it but you have a great chance of getting banned. I highly unrecomment using this engine unless you wanna get banned
top died senter the markes should mach up
timing maybe off
Crankcase is a generic term for the parts of the engine enclosing the crankshaft; usually the lower-half of the engine's block and the oilpan. It is more at describing an area of the engine rather than an actual part. As such, it does nothing on its own but keeps oil in and dirt out. When you look up at the bottom of the Storm engine, that's the crankcase.
lower part of engine passenger side facing fire wall
doubt it, the storm is an Isuzu the tracker a suzuki
