Question about 1993 Geo Metro
Clutch pedal switch is a possibility. Starter solenoid would be more common. Find the solenoid on the side of the starter by following the large cable from the positive battery terminal. With a multimeter, check voltage where the large cable connects to the solenoid. No voltage here means a bad connection to the battery. If that's ok, check voltage on the small wire connected to the solenoid while someone tries to start it. If you have voltage, but the solenoid doesn't click when voltage is applied, the solenoid is bad. If it clicks, the starter may be bad; pull it and have it tested at an auto parts store. If there's no voltage to the small wire, it could be the clutch pedal switch, the ignition switch, a blown fuse, or a bad connection in the wiring. You can bypass the clutch pedal switch easily with a jumper wire. Bypassing the ignition switch to check it is a little trickier; you'll need a wiring diagram to find the start wire and then you'll need to trace it to a connector, unless you are willing to strip the insulation off a spot to get the tester probe on the copper wire. If you do that, be sure to tape it afterwards.

SOURCE: 97 Geo Metro will not start
IF you are able to jump the vehicle using cables connected to another car then it is a power issue, if the vehicle stays running after starter you can most likely rule out the regulator, it sound like the battery is weak and dieing, it can be strong enough to run the radio without having the power to start the ignition.

Testimonial: "i will take out and have tested at autozone, thanx"
P0012 = "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over- Retarded (Bank 1). Check the timing chain/belt. It must be loose. Must be replaced ASAP if it is indeed loose.

I don't know if there is a fill plug. I just use the level plug located on driver's side right above the inner CV joint of the half-shaft (axle) to fill it. A piece of flexible tubing connected to a funnel works well. The drain plug is fairly near the center of the bottom of the gearbox housing (behind the bell housing). The level plug has a 24mm, fairly flat, hex head, and the drain plug is a recessed plug with a 3/8" (?) square hole (for a socket handle).
