1992 Geo Metro LSI Automatic Intermittent start problem

The car starts about half the time. The other time the engine won't even turn over. Seems to happen most often after it has been running a while then turned off. Can't get started again, all the warning lights come on but the engine will not crank. Jiggling the shift lever in park seems to help. The engine has eventually started each time so we have not have had to tow the car.

Sounds like the safety switch that keeps you from starting the car when it's not in park is loose or is not making good electrical contact.

My geo metro egine have a ticking sound


If you have adjusted your valves and the ticking persists then try changing your exhaust manifold gasket. A leaking exhaust manifold gasket will often make a loud ticking sound.

My '97 Geo Metro LSi will not start. When I turn the ignition key on the buzzer, idiot lights, lights, horn, etc., everything electrical will work. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no...


It could be the starter, test the small wire going to the starter, it should have power when turning the key to start/crank. If it does, and the starter will not crank the engine, whack it with a hammer, if it then starts, replace the starter. If there is no power to the starter, then it could be the ignition switch, or the neutral switch, or a fuse/link blown.

Do the valves need to be adjusted on a 92 geo metro lsi


No. Geo Metros use hydraulic lifters which can not be adjusted. If you Metro is making excessive valve noise, the lifters are probably worn out or the oil level is low.

Need fluid specs for 1992 Geo Metro LSI convertible 1.0L


I always get either the Chilton's Manual or the Haynes Repair Manual (my favorite) for about $20 - $35 at Auto Zone or Pep Boys or any other Retail Auto Parts Store. These give not only fluid specs [capacities and recommended types], but also step by step detailed instructions on repairing anything wrong with that specific model of car, based on a complete tear down and rebuild. A must for used car owners.
