Question about 1995 Geo Metro

1 Answer

Running issues I have a 1995 geo Metro. this car sit for over a year and was only started a few times. it had a 1/2 of a tank of gas in it. now that im driving it again. it started out running very rough, not wanting to start or stay running. I noticed that there is a white bubbling mixture coming out of the intake area of the carborater. I was advised to put seafoam in the gas, I did that and it is running better to a point but now when starting it up first thing of the day it starts right up and runs but shows signs of dying out when you try and pullout at times. once you get going the car runs great, stopping it show signs of dying out. then once you turn the car off, it will not start back for bout 30 minutes or so. when trying to start it almost starts spits and sputters but doesn't. to add to this it blows steam out of the over flow area from the radiator, no water really just steam. the head gaskit was replaced all new sensors belts hoses last year. I replaced air filter and replaced air filter this week. I have drove the car about 300 more or less miles this past week. it seems to run better everyday, but I cant keep it running any ideas?

Why will my 1995 Geo Metro not start?

You have a pick-up coil in the distributor that tells the computer when to fire the injectors, I would guess this might be your problem, you are getting fuel to the injectors, but not into the engine.

new head, was it milled (shaved) or put back not checking
for warp-age like the Service manual directs?
warped head bust be de-warped using baking oven.
Ask your machinist this is knows this very well on alumin, heads.

Id work steam issue, hard and not drive too far, like that,
Most heads replaced, DIY fail.
for 2 reasons,
not dewarped, and not surfaced correctly and other reasons.

I have a 1997 geo metro and I want to use parts from it to keep my 1995 geo metro running. Is this possible? specifically an alternator.

Body parts change ever so much from year to year, but the engine parts(if same size engine) should. On the body parts, you will just have to check.

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

1996 geo metro dies when gas is applied. its runs but then it dies when you give it gas, but there was a new gas filter that was just put on,

try holding a lit match near the gas tank to see if the gas is good. if it explodes bad gas was not your problem

Geo Metro 1994, diagnose no fuel presure problem.

Quite a few things can cause a car to die after idling for awhile, but if you have verified that the fuel pressure is actually dropping when the motor dies, the likely culprits are:
1) Electric fuel pump in the gas tank is bad
2) The fuel pressure regulator (on the throttle body) is bad
3) An electrical problem in the power to the fuel pump (like a bad fuel pump relay or lose ground wire to the relay's circuit)

I had a geo metro that sat a long time and the gas turned to varnish. You will need to drop the tank, clean out the gunk, put in a new fuel pump and and filter and flush the fuel lines out to the injectors.
