Is the 1993 Geo Storm engine an interference motor or are you OK if the timing belt breaks?

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.

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.

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

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?

Whenever it passes over and breaks apart I would say.

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

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. Karl

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.

No, Necro Fleur's 'If...you can' effect is not one that can miss the timing.

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.

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.

top died senter the markes should mach up

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

look into chiltonsonline.com or get yourself a haynes repair manual at any autopart store.!

doubt it, the storm is an Isuzu the tracker a suzuki

To set the dist timing You need to take off the pass side Kick panel there are two plugs one white one red get the white one and cross pin 1&3 with a paper clip then put timing light on bat and number one cylinder start engine loosen dist locking bolt then aim timing light at crank pully and timing indicator adjust to 10 degrees before top dead center tighten distributor take paper clip out put kick panel back done

Check the ignition circuit in the Storm. Start by checking the crank position sensor, then the coil pack to find the lack of spark.
