Question about 1996 Geo Metro

1 Answer

Geo Metro 96 1.3 to 95 1.3..??? Harness/computer prob?

Hello, I noticed that you had done some engine swapping and wanted to ask you a question. I just posted to the Geo Metro bulletin board a problem with a swap.

- I bought a 1996 that was wrecked with a good eng/trans. I placed it in the 95 (both are 1.3 4cyl with automatic trans.
- The engine went in beautifully with the changing of the EGR and hoses as well as the thermostat housing from the 95 engine that had the extra temp sensor on it.
- Only problem is that it runs like **** (I do currently have the newer 95 distributor which has the same model number stamped on it and is in much better condition.
- I noticed after the whole thing was put in there that the 96 has a crank sensor and my 95 harness has no connection for it. What do I need to do now, or do I need to do nothing…the car starts but service engine soon light flashes and car runs like ****.
- Do I need to take the harness and computer from the 96 and put it in the 95…? Yuch.

My brother did this same swap a couple years ago. He had to get the whole harness from the 96; including the computer to make it run right.

Replacing the Exhaust Pipe

Why would you not go to the auto parts store,buy what you need,return home and install it yourself.

You must have lost your mind,if you think that a junk yard exhaust system is anything but rusted metal.

Can not get car to pass inspection

Copy the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and go to the Chevy/Geo website to determine what the original engine was.
If you try a service like "AutoCheck", you may be able to determine when / where the engine was swapped, if at all.

Hope this helps!

I am wanting to put a vtec 4 cylinder engines in a 1992 geo metro

Are you sure you want to do that? A VTEC engine is worth quite a bit of money and the work involved is huge if you have not done anything like this before. Manufacturing motor mounts, making the exhaust fit the new engine, wiring and what transmission do you want to use? It is best to use the one that came with the engine but now you need to make the drive axles fit. The list goes on.

94Metro Has a bad vibration at idle, gets worse in gear stopped

check all motor mounts first. if they are ok then check to make sure all cylenders are firing. try pulling one plug wire off the spark plug and see if the engine changes sound or anything. if it does, put the wire right back on then move to the next one and repete. if you pull one and it does not change then that plug is not firing. could be caused by a crack in the porcelian in the plug or bad plug wire connection or bad wire

93 Geo Metro

As long as they are the same type of engine ( I believe they should both be 1.0L 3 cyl engines). Most parts for the Geo Metro from 1992 to 1994 interchange with out a problem.
