    My 1992 geo metro 1.0 seems to flood when I come to a stop and have to wait for the traffic light to change. When i barely press on the accelerator it wants to flood on me, I have to baby it to get it going and sometimes that don't work. It also idles high I cant figure it out, I have checked the timing and its fine, the idle adjustment screw is all the way in. I also have sprayed carburator cleaner around the carburator to check for vacuum leak and couldnt find any.

You might also check the single injector, had a friend's that the fuel pressure regulator had been messed with and was over-pressurizing the injector, that weakened the injector allowing it to flood at idle and also when cut off (the injector was leaking)

Mine was doing kind up like this and it was a bad map sensor I unhooked the harness from sensor and it ran good enough for me to get home as I had a spare parts car.

I think it may have to do with the TPS. If its been adjusted in the past, then if may be squirting too much gas in the throttle body. If you take off the air filter and cover, listen for a constant hissing sound. If there is, loosen and adjusted the TPS to get a timed hiss sound, and then adjust the timing as needed. You should be able to stop the flooding, but this is all in reference that at one point, the TPS was adjusted.
TPS - Throttle positioning sensor.

Geos hurt.

Driver seat belt worn half way thru .engine just started to idle high. door lights stay on,it is a 1992 4 dr hatch back w/70000 mi


I'm sorry, what is your question?

Your seat belt can be replaced - the seat belt has nothing to do with the engine idle, or the door light. The light stays on because the door switch needs adjustment or replaced or perhaps it has beenturned on by the light interior light switch that controls the dash board lights.

70,000 is not a lot of miles.

I suggest you have your vehicle tuned up aat a garage to fix the high idle and assure economical operation. That same mechanic may be able to advise you on the light and how to replace the seat belt. Your car may be running fast because of the cold weather to warm itself up. I dont know where you live.

Idles high, not getting good gas mileage from my geo metro, It smells funny after it has been running for a while. The metro is a 1993 the heater does not work but it does not over heat. Down shifting into...


Check idle and timing, it may need to be adjusted. might need to adjust the idle. As far as the shifting into first and second gear that also could be all the same problem. The smell could be the cadiltic convetor. Good luck

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.

Trouble Code description


Code 46 is indeed the trouble code for the Idle Speed Controller which is that big black box thingy on your throttle body. A lot of Chilton-type manual books omit that code because the ISC isn't found on pre 94 Metros. The ISC is a computer controlled auto-adjuster for the engine idle.

An important note: code 46 is often caused by misadjusted distributor timing. As you probably know, timing affects the idle, and if improper timing moves the idle beyond the ISC's adjustment range, the check engine light will come on and diagnostics will return code 46.
