    well it can be that may be u dont tight the bolts right when u put the head gasket use starting fluid and spray all around de head and bacum lines may be u have a bacum leak or check the idle air conrol sensor if this sensor get stuck cause this kind of problems also check mass air flow sensor

97 geo metro runs but when put it in reverse or drive it makes a grind noise


Sounds like it's time for a new clutch or transmission. Take it to a mechanic you trust for a quick test to determine the issue.

1996 Geo metro, not automaticly shifting?


that is the TCM
the TCM transmission brain, needs to be scanned !
Do not overfill the trans, fill it using the instructions; do not guess.
so does Drive always work in 1st, gear car moves ok.
and reverse.,.

only fails to up shift in drive that it, ??? post symptoms more clearly
please...
there are like 50 bad symptoms possible on any A/t
1996 in the USA (are you or in Canada?)
is a major car redesign, here, OBD2 laws, et cetera.

and when they did that (some suzuki's) the TCM still is using old rules. old TCM retained, seem not on this car...

later they moved Mrs. TCM into the ECU box. and renamed it PCM.
that is the short history on most 96 cars made.

why not buy a used service manual on this car, off fleabay
and see all that uniqueness to this 96 car.

A metro is are really a GM modified, Suzuki SWIFT.
see hood sticker it states that clearly. (up under)
adding to the uniqueness of any 96 car the GEO mods.
i looked online for you.


it shows the M60 3speed trans
shows its controlled from the PCM (its integrated)
6 gear shift wires, that must work
2 wire VSS speed sensor (clean it ?)
2 shift solenoids.

ever heard of a scan tool?
any USA scan tool works on a USA car, 96, (98 in canada)
plug it in,
best is to driven and scan to see all errors. (2 persons dig?)
then see DTC errors, P07xx errors
the errors must be corrected. first.

recap.
1: check fuses.
2: check levels (not guessing,hot in park, read manual)
3: scan it with any obd2 scan tool made.

1996 Geo Metro Clutch won't disengage


Hi,

In all likelihood two (2) possibilities:
  • defective clutch cable (most likely); and/or
  • defective clutch fork (least likely).
Should it be the cable, this might be of help. It is turns out to be the fork, you might need the services of a qualified professional or a dealership.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The check balls I put back in were slightly larger. You should be able to get them from any transmission shop or the Chevy dealer. I got my gasket from the Chevy dealer.
