No major problems, they are a little harder to work on than the 3.1. The Alternator is in a real tight spot and they have a timing belt that needs replace every 90,000 miles. Even though you don't have 90,000 miles on yours, I would recommend replacing the belt if it hasn't been done. Just because it is 15 years old .

Sounds like you may have a bent rod or broken cam. At any rate you most likely have major engine failure. Complete rebuild will be required.

While driving down the road my car sputtered and stalled. got it back starte adnd went about a mile and it did it again only would not start again. 94 dodge shadow 2.2 ltr engine. fuel filter, pump or

The symptoms you are describing could be caused by several things. However, that engine is known for failures in the ignition pick-up coil. When it fails, it is usually after driving the car for a while until it gets hot. The engine dies and the engine cools off a little and it can start back up like you are describing, only to fail again when the heat builds back up. It usually starts out as an intermittent problem which gets worse by occuring more and more often and finally ends up to where the engine will not restart at all.
This is the first thing I would check. If the engine starts again, the failure can usually be reproduced by wiggling and tugging slightly on the wires to the pickup coil going into the distributor.

The pickup coil ismounted inside the distributor under the cap and rotor assemblies and looks like the picture below.

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.
