STALLING AND CHUGGING

1995 Geo Prizm • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 158,000 miles

Hi. I have been having on/off car problems with my 1995 geo prizm since Septemebr. It would shake, lose acceleration, and stall at stop signs or red lights. I had distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, and coil replaced. Used fuel injector cleaner. I had two mechanics check out the car and was finally told I need a new computer system. A mechanic upped the rpm's for me and the car was fine for two weeks. Today, it would not start and I had to jump the car. A friend mentioned that a bad a/c compressor clutch could cause the symptoms my car was having- stalling, chugging, etc. Any advice? Thanks.

Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
