You have a failed transmission here moist likely. have a transmission repair shop perform a diagnostic but i am very sure the transmission will need to come out and be rebuilt.

SOURCE: Torque converter problem??

I would check the transfer case. The transmission is shifting manually thru the gears okay. The transfer case 4x4 module is not communicating to release the case so the vehicle will move.
Make sure all the fluid levels are full.

SOURCE: When i start my 1997 Geo Metro, it often sputters

Try this
Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: i have a 97 VW Golf auto trans, I have no reverse

Check your fluid level to make sure its up to the specified level, then I'd be checking out your linkage from your shifter inside the car right to the transmission, it sounds like to me your linkage may be worn enough to put the vehicle in drive but not reverse. The linkage bushings are a common problem on vdubs. See if you can put the car in reverse by moving the linkage arm directly attached to the transmission (make sure you have someone in the car with the brakes on or caulk the wheels) if it does go into reverse when you manually move the direct linkage arm at the transmission then replace your linkage bushings, if not then the only other problem would be a transmission internal problem. Good luck

1996 Geo metro, not automaticly shifting?


that is the TCM
the TCM transmission brain, needs to be scanned !
Do not overfill the trans, fill it using the instructions; do not guess.
so does Drive always work in 1st, gear car moves ok.
and reverse.,.

only fails to up shift in drive that it, ??? post symptoms more clearly
please...
there are like 50 bad symptoms possible on any A/t
1996 in the USA (are you or in Canada?)
is a major car redesign, here, OBD2 laws, et cetera.

and when they did that (some suzuki's) the TCM still is using old rules. old TCM retained, seem not on this car...

later they moved Mrs. TCM into the ECU box. and renamed it PCM.
that is the short history on most 96 cars made.

why not buy a used service manual on this car, off fleabay
and see all that uniqueness to this 96 car.

A metro is are really a GM modified, Suzuki SWIFT.
see hood sticker it states that clearly. (up under)
adding to the uniqueness of any 96 car the GEO mods.
i looked online for you.


it shows the M60 3speed trans
shows its controlled from the PCM (its integrated)
6 gear shift wires, that must work
2 wire VSS speed sensor (clean it ?)
2 shift solenoids.

ever heard of a scan tool?
any USA scan tool works on a USA car, 96, (98 in canada)
plug it in,
best is to driven and scan to see all errors. (2 persons dig?)
then see DTC errors, P07xx errors
the errors must be corrected. first.

recap.
1: check fuses.
2: check levels (not guessing,hot in park, read manual)
3: scan it with any obd2 scan tool made.

1996 Geo Metro Clutch won't disengage


Hi,

In all likelihood two (2) possibilities:
  • defective clutch cable (most likely); and/or
  • defective clutch fork (least likely).
Should it be the cable, this might be of help. It is turns out to be the fork, you might need the services of a qualified professional or a dealership.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
