Geo Metro Engine Questions
I have a 93' Metro that acts like it's not getting fuel? It's a 5-speed, so it will run when pushed, but when you try to stop, it tries to die( kinda hard to keep it running and not run over people in front or behind me). We have changed the fuel filter. Any suggestions would be helpful. Cindy
It is cold outside and I replaced my water pump
Now I can not figure out how to reinstall the timing belt and the tensioner
I have Metro book but it does not show diagram of 1.3liter 4 cyl engine. Even new book only shows 1 liter eng
Can anyone describe how to align timing belt and tensioner
I just purchased a 1996 Geo MEtro 4 door in September and have began observing a few things about it. First my Metro seems to hesitate out of nowhere after its been running fine. Any one else have or had this problem? I am a college student with not a lot of funds to be taking it into the shop every month or so.
Thanks so much
FRist off, has anyone else have the SES light on constantly in their car? I have taken mine to the mechanic twice and hes checked the car and reset the light within a week it is back on.
Second, anyone ever replaced the engine in the car? I have suspcion that my engine is NOT the original engine in the car and is actually a junk yard one if it is, i may look into replacing the engine as this is my only mode of transporation to and from Cal State Fullerton.
Thanks for your help!
My car seems to be leaking from the same area, I have replaced the oil pan gasket and now after looking at the crank shaft seal, it appears to be dry there.
What did you find on you car, im grasping at straws now.
Still have the same problem. HELP!!!!

I just bought a '96 Geo Metro today. It runs great but I have to put in a left hand signal light and the purple????? paint is fading in two spots. One area is on the roof and the other is on the trunk. Can this be polished out or am I going to have to buy purple spray paint to fix it?
1. Motor rattles at higher RPM under load, let foot off throttle and rattle goes away. ( Valves or Bearings? )
2. Transmission sometimes will not downshift after coming to a stop. Have to do it manually. Sometimes motor will try to stall, have to drop transmission manually into 1st.
3. Running the A/C,headlights car dies due to battery dieing, Had electrical system tested, they said that it was fine.
Would it be better to repair the car or get rid of it...
Any suggestions would be helpful....
have your transmission filter changed and see if that isnt the problem.
I question the quality of the electrical check. check to verify alternator belt is properly tightened, do a charging voltage test on car while everything is running, and verify the engine idles up when ac is engaged.
If your after gas milage a metro is hard to beat!!! find a honest mechanic and invest some money in it. had a 87 and have a 98 metro I have a advantage by repairing myself 87 250000 miles,gave to mother, 199000 miles 98 just did valve job.
After my original post I looked at the spots closer and had the car washed. The spots are very rough like sand paper. It would appear that you are right. Perhaps I'll sand them down first and then try and find the right spray paint. I noticed this problem seems common on the dark color Geo Metro cars.
It did not do this whatsoever during warm weather, only when it got very cold.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
have to pull the cam to get head bolts out
how do i make sure that the all valves return to top dead when reinstalling the shaft?
