Where can i find the rectifier assembly on a metro?

you forgot to say where you found this object.
my wild guess. is deep in side the alternator.
and mine is sold at, SUZUKI
but if your old car has a rebuilt alternator. and is not original
as most are by now. after 16 long years of service?
if that is the case, ?
1: stated the maker of the alternator.
2: state the model number of the alternator.
3: then buy parts for THAT alternator.
in that order. no other order works.

or replace the whole alternator with a rebuilt.

on my 97 it had a Hitachi ALT.
and if still stock Suzuki with Hitachi, does still have internal parts.
but due to age , the delivery time is very long from a far away
if you need internal part, fess up brand and pn, of ALT and we
can get any part for any alt. lots of makes and models there are.

Were is spark plug number 1 at on my 3 cylinder geo metro

On GM inline engines,cylinder #1 is the one closest to the front(pulley)end of the engine. If you pulled the wires off the distributor/coil pack,and don't know where they go,put one wire one at a time and crank it.If it doesn't backfire,repeat until it starts.(this is only easy on 4 cylinder or smaller engines)

I have a 98 chevy malibu i replace the front pads and rotors, i drove the car to test out the brakes and there was no brakes then i bleeded the front brakes and still no brakes then i change the master...

you have to bleed all 4 brakes even if you only replaced the 2 , start with the brake farthest from the master cylinder, and work your way up to the closest one, which in your case would be passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front, drivers front, make sure as your doing this, that the master cylinder never runs out of fluid, or you have to start all over

Can you take the motor for 1997 geo metro and put it in 1997 saturn sl2 ?

the metro is either a 3 or 4 cylinder japanese mitsubishi engine and has nothing in common with the 4 cylinder GM 1.9L 4. so you would have to manufacture new mounts, and electrical and mechanical connections for everything. assuming you have those skills, the car would be underpowered.
compare the size of the tiny metro with the small saturn. look in a junkyard for a 96-98 saturn engine which will bolt right in. note the donor vehicle must match the donee vehicle in engine a SOHC or DOHC.

What is the cost of CV joint for a ch Chevy Geo metro 2000, 4 cylinder? The car makes a lot of noise when I take a curve. Like iron cracking.

if you are in the states they run around $75 to $100 at shucks/checker/kragen/oreilly auto. you can check exact prices at the site will also show availablitiy for your area.

I recomend changing both sides at the same time. unless there was damage to the axle shaft from say... offroading or an accident (yes you can offroad a metro... used to take mine on 4wheeler trails all the time), there is a chance the other side will go out before too long as well. if you replace one side and not the other you may also notice a pull to the side that was not changed, due to one being worn drastically more than the other. hope this helps

Geo metro

well if you know it has a blown cylinder they you need to rebuild the motor and that cant be explained over the internet. the easier thing to do is to buy a used motor and replace the whole thing. those motors and small and cheap. you will waste more time rebuilding the motor that you would just getting a cheap used one and replacing it.
