Question about 1991 Geo Metro

91 geo metro-fuel filter?

My 91 geo was running fine until the other night when it started hesitating and sputtering. It seems the problem is worse the more speed i try to get. It has had a rough idle as of late as well. I was thinking of changing the fuel filter, but i dont know if it is even fuel related. Anyone?

    I had the same problem a year ago... took it to the shop "advising them" of my fuel-filter or fuel pump diagnosis. Turned out to be the Catalytic Converter. Not bad after 180,000 miles and 17 years! Well worth the co$t [got a generic one, NOT stock], and it's been fine ever since.

    did you figure out what it was?

    Even if you find advice about it not being your fuel filter, if the filter hasn't been changed, ever, it would be a good time to do it. I got my 90 Metro back in 2005 and replace the FF, it was completely rusted inside.

    Geos hurt.

Just install it and the fuel pump will fill it when you start the vehicle.

91 geo metro will start fine when cold but will not start when warm. Would injector cleaner put into fuel help?

Likely not. Check it for spark when its hot. It might be an ignition module or coil problem.

Geo metro 97. Runs great for a day then wont start the next

Your timing belt is worn out. Some days it runs good because the cogs are lined up. The next time you start it, it maybe backfires just a touch, and it's out of time. Today, it's really out. Or maybe even broken.
