Notice the fuse description that sais IG-COIL 15amp. This fuse runs the coils and the PCM as you will notice the PCM is the last item listed in this curcuit.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is located behind the right hand side of the glove box attached to the bottom right hand side.

Sounds like to me your litters are knocking, might need to be adjusted, valve adjustment, this is not a real easy fix or cheep fix. With the symptoms you just gave me along with the smoke I am sorry to say is not a easy fix, BUT to try and get by for a while try and drain the oil and put thicker grade oil in, like 20 -50 it will quite it up, and maybe by you some time, but in my humble opinion, you have oil possibly getting past your rings causing the smoke and valves/ litters need attention. PLEASE get this to a reputable shop for proper in person diagnose . Hope this helps, and I am sorry it is not a simple fix. Thanks mike:(

Sounds like a misfire. Check your plug wires and plugs. Sounds like one is not firing which will cause your engine to do this.

Hi, the orifice tube is generally located in the condenser outlet, evaporator inlet, or sometimes in the liquid line hose assembly....

I have the same problem. Started in 2001. I got lucky and pulled the fuel pump relay, then stuck it back in and it started. I replaced that relay and it worked fine for 7-8 years. Now I am experiencing the same problem. Another forum I read suggested during a cold start, the fuel pump works from the circuit breaker, but after the car is heated up, it works frm the oil pressure? (I didn't understand it) but it went on to say that as the car heats up, the oil thins down and the car won't start. It didn't mention a fix for this. Just try the relay. It's about $30. Maybe they just get weak?

at the base of the seat down were the floor meets the seat check to see if there are 2 bolts one on either side of the seat about in the area of wear you would sit(not in the center or outer edge of seat)by the floor.if so remove the bolts and lift the seat up and out.if not the in the same area were the bolts would be push down on the forward part of seat and lift outwards away from the rear of the car a bit and the seat lock should release the seat and lift up and remove.the backrest of the seat should be bolted to the the steel framing of the car then lift the seat back straight up and off the hooks.

It sounds like you have broken your timing belt. Remove the plastic cover on the end of the head and see if it is still wrapped around the cam sprocket on the end of the motor. If this is the case consider replacing the belt tensioner when you replace the belt. This should keep you from having to do the job twice. You are fortunate that breaking the belt on your model should NOT bend the valves.

sounds like a timing belt ,check it out first and if it is and if this engine is the same as the opel corsa which i think it may be then its valve free .

Is the Geo burning engine oil? do you have to add it every week/month, you know it could be sucking brake fluid or even tranny fluid so keep an eye on all.

Common issue would be torque converter is locked up. Replacement is required.

If it keeps blowing it could be one of two problems. There could be a short in the system somewhere and it keep grounding out, or the fuse that is in there isn't the right one (look in owners manual or on the fuse box cover to double check).

Have a good one!
