My guess is a bad governor.
bad throttle valve, on rear of tranny, either the cable one, or vacuum one.
the tests are all in the FSM and online at alldata.com, for $15

SOURCE: Have a 91 geo metro.

There could be lots of reasons. You need several things mechanically to make the engine work: fuel, air (compressed), and an ignition source (spark).

Without getting too technical, check the basic things first. Are the spark plugs clean and not broken? Are the spark plug wires hard and possibly cracked or are they nice and soft the way they should be like new wires? Is the carb or fuel injectors clean? Is the air filter dirty? Is the fuel filter clogged? Are the fuel lines/connections leaking?

Check those basic things first.....then move onto more complicated things next.

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.

The torque converter may be shot.

The main Transmission fluid pump may be shot.

The electricals to the solenoids may be disconnected or relays maight not be functioning.

Look for drips of oil and listen for strange sounds coming from it.

Auto trans will shift some times and manual only


It may be just the vehicle speed sensor. Does the speedometer work OK? The vehicle speed sensor tells the computer how to control the shifting and it also sends a signal to the speedometer. Is the trany full of fluid, is it fairly clean? It should be red. Most vehicles, you check the fluid with the engine idling, in park.
