SOURCE: ignition timing for 1991 Pontiac Firefly or 1991 Chevrolet Sprint or 1991 Geo Metro

for 1991 geo metro 1.0 liter 3 cyl engine the timing is 6 degrees before top dead center. you will need a tachometer because the rpm must be 800 when you set the timing. also you will need to disconnect the vacuum advance to the distributor, and plug the hose to avoid a vacuum leak. (alternate method is to pinch the vacuum advance hose going to the distributor while you are setting the timing) Good Luck!

1997 pontiac grand prix- car wouldn't start so we changed the alternator and charged the battery. it still wont start and now the key wont come out of the ignition.


Hello! The problem is the ignition lock cylinder itself...I would suggest changing the cylinder and the ignition switch...Purchase and change the Lock Cylinder first...If that solves the problem, stop there (The switch is costly...It may not be needed)...See photos below...Guru....Saailer

I need to change the key switch on the steering colum and can,t get the old one out


You must remove the steering wheel and remove the signal switch to get access to the ignition lock retainer. This retainer can be a small bolt or a reccessed pin that has to be pushed to remove the lock. The key may have to be in place to help removal. If this is the case then the key should be in the" on" position.
PS The push pin may also be located at the base of the lock cylinder on the outside of the housing. Look around under the housing before getting into the steering wheel.

Hey iam looking for tail lights for suzuki swift 1995 model can you help me please.


Get to know the sister cars. The Suzuki Swift is almost completely identical to the Geo Metro and the Pontiac Firefly: the only differences were that the Metro and the Firefly were available in sedan form and the Swift wasn't. Also, no changes were made to any of these cars between 1995 and 1997. If you look for parts for any of these cars they will work.

Vehicles mentioned:
1995, 1996, 1997 Suzuki Swift
1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro 2/3dr
1995, 1996, 1997 Pontiac Firefly 2/3dr

In addition the only things that changed after 1997 were the bumpers and front turn signals (and that the Metro became a Chevy) so taillights for later Swifts/Metros/Fireflies should work as well.
