'92 Geo Tracker, Put'n Parts In

Q: My daughters ‘92 Geo Tracker died as she was driving down the road. It acts like it is out of gas. We checked the fuel pump and it is putting out around 70 pounds of pressure. I put a new fuel injector in it, but it still won't start. I have already spent $300 and am getting no where. Does it have a computer to tell the injector when to open? Where would it be located? ......Lisa

A: Woe down there Lisa! Your diagnostic approach is going to cost you nothing but money! How did you come up with about 70 PSI fuel pressure? That is high, so I question how that information was acquired. Why do you want to know where the computer is? That would be just about that last thing that I would be looking at. Before any parts are replaced you have to start with checking the basics. In most cases a vehicle that just quits while driving down the road has a problem with air, fuel or spark supply. It is a rare day indeed that an injector or computer just ups and quits. If you’re just guessing which part to replace you’d be best off paying for diagnosis and then if you want, make the repairs yourself.
