Question about 1994 Geo Metro

1 Answer

Automatic 1994 metro 3 cyl.tranny takes a long time to shift

My 1994 geo metro only has 58k miles. The engine idles absolutely fine in nuetral. When you shift into drive it takes a long time for the tranny to shift into next gearand when it finally does shift, the engine start to stutter and want to stall. I have to shift to nuetral and get the rpm's up. I checked fuel filter and cat,muffler both clear.

2: i step on the throttle pedal, the RPM goes to 1000 and stops
engine bad,(100 related reasons) weak engine.
2b: I do same the RPM goes to way over 3000 rpm engine screams
in bar stool words
this is called transmission, bad. (for 100 reasons)

1: make sure shift cable works like new, read the FSM on the checks.
2: make sure levels are correct per the operators guide, do not guess.
read the guide and do it right. not like engine checks. of oil at all.

92 geo metro with automatic transmission will not go out of 1st gear sometimes


my guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.

1994 geo metro automatic transmission wont shift manuallywhen warm.


is it slipping,?
if the rpms rise and car dont speed up , in direct proportions that is slip.
is it?
if the engine has full power in 1st, the the transmission is bad.

not sure what shift manually means,
Drive to low? low to high. what? be exact in statements/
better stated what it does good and bad, and when. all modes.
are you saying the trans shirts perfectly in AUTOMATIC when cold./?

I took motor/tranny out of well maintained/well running 1994 Geo metro xf and installed them in a 1995 geo metro LSI. everything went well i had to use the 1995 intake and throttle body due to wiring...


Yes, because the specs are different... most manufatures change the specs on vehicles every four years, so 90-94 is most likely all the same, but then you will have 95-99 an so on an so on.. Good Luck

What should i set the timing at for my 94 geo metro i have a timing light should i set it at 0?


Unless you have replaced the hood or the sticker has been removed, there should be a label on the inside of your hood that lists the correct timing.

Make sure you short the two appropriate wires in the 'test plug' before setting the timing. It's on the drivers side firewall under the hood. The idle on 94 Metros is automatically controlled so you don't have to worry about setting the idle before adjusting the timing. My 94 automatic metro says 5BTC.

1994 Metro Geo rough idling and lagging up hills


dunno if it'll fix it- but check your pcv valve - 5$ for a new one - also check your egr valve- should be able to move depress it with your finger- if not, carb cleaner is safe to use to clean it up- remove it and clean it. this should help the idle

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.

1994 Geo Metro Automatic Transmission


There is a transmission controller that is located under the dash beside the right hand side of the steering column. It is held on to a bracket by two 10mm bolts. A change in that transmission control computer will make the transmission shift like new
