'97 Geo Prizm same engine as a '97 Corolla?

Hello:

I have a '97 Geo Prizm that has a 1.6L engine. Recently, I have started getting the "clicking starter" syndrome and would like to replace the contacts in it. Is this engine the same as the '97 Corolla 1.6L, meaning would the contacts for a '97 Corolla fit the starter? Also, where are the bolts to take the starter off and how does the small wire from the relay disconnect from the starter? Thanks for any help

Have you looked at the list of links in the Truck section that Sidney posted ? All the starters are similar design. The part #s for almost everything and quite a few tips as well.

For all practical purposes a Geo Prism is a Toyota Corolla. Besides trims pieces just about any mechanical piece on a 97 Corolla is going to be the same on your 97 prism.

A starter "click" on a car that new is probably just the electrical connections on the starter or battery. Unless the car has about a million miles on it, I wouldn't fault the starter right away. Before you gut the starter, make sure your connections are good. If you are sure the starter is bad (most parts stores will test them for free), you might want to just put a new/rebuilt one in. All of the mechanicals between the Corolla and Prism are the same, and the cars are actually made in the same factories. Just squeeze and pull on the relay connector, and it should come off. IIRC, there is one bolt above the starter and one below on the trans bellhousing that hold the starter in. Regards, Aaron

Prizm to Corolla yesterday was what Pontiac Vibe is to Matrix today.

If you have a Geo, you can look and a lot of the parts in the engine are Toyota I think all engine parts for the corolla will work on a geo, but the interior and exterior body parts/trim/accesories are not the same, atleast most of them are different anyways.
