The only way I can think of that raw gasoline could get into the oil is at the thottle body. So, the fuel injector or fuel line in the throttle body would be the first place to look if you're sure that it's gas in the oil and not another fluid.

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

I have a 1991 geo metro. when i have a full tank of gas, the fuel gauge hand shows only half full. What causes this to happen?


The floater gauge is sticking. This is part of the fuel sending unit which has your fuel pump connected to it. Try using a fuel additive like seafoam or chevron techron to see if it frees it up, if not the unit will need to be replaced.

My car will turn over till the battery dies but will not start. when it is trying to start air comes out the tail pipe but it smells like gas and i can take off the oil filler cap and it smells like gas....


Sounds like it is getting plenty of gas. First off check to see if the fuel regulator is bad either with a pressure gauge or pull the vacume line off and see if gas is seeping out, if it is theres your problem. Replace it. Pull out the plugs and let it set overnight and evaporate the gas in the cylinders. In that time get the battery to full charge. Put new plugs in it and it should start. Do not drive the car with all of that gas in the oil. It will wash the bearings and ruin the engine. CHANGE THE OIL AND FILTER. This is just a start and most common problem with these

1991 geo metro car misses at high rpm


try this first. the older the car; the more problems the ethanol gas is causing. replace the fuel filter. you'll probably see what you think is dirty gas; it is; in a way. it's the ethanol goop that stays and ruins engines, and fuel systems. install the new filter. add a whole can of SEAFOAM to at least a half tank of premium gas. replace fuel filter before next 500 miles.add can of SEAFOAM every 3000 miles after that, and that will clean the valves, the goop, the carbon and keep your tank and lines free of moisture, It might take afew miles(depending on the clogging), but it should work. I hate ethanol gas.

I installed a new a/c compressor on a 91 geo metro.Where does the compressor oil go into the compressor at?


The compressor's oil is mixed with and circulates with the refrigerant. R134a refrigerant can be purchased with or without oil mixed into it. There are also separate oil 'chargers' that inject oil without the refrigerant.
