Question about 1996 Geo Metro
The new rings on this motor did not come with instructions on how the rings are to be installed.I need to know piston ring gap and wich way they go, numbers up or down?
If you are that deep into things you will do poorly without a good manual. Are the pistons new or used?If they are used you need to completly clean the ring grooves in the pistons or the new rings will stick and gall.Did you remove the ridge at the top of the cylinders? If not there is a good the top ring will either break or bust the upper land off of the piston. Hopefully you had a machine shop go through the block. Check the ring manufacture's web site. I am sure they will have tips and instructions.

I would also recommend doing a fuel pressure test to see if it loses fuel pressure overnight.
