Question about 1997 Geo Metro

1 Answer

Geo metro 97. Runs great for a day then wont start the next

I have a geo metro 97 3 cylinder. At first it sounded like it was staring for gas. sputtering, stalling. Then it would drive like a champ. Then the next day it would do it again. I replaced the fuel pump and the filter and it had one epasode I figured was just air in the system and then drove for 300 miles though all types of traffic with no problem. this morning it wont even start.

    no not the timing belt. Three cyclinders are not that forgiving. They just plain wont start if the timing belt is off. anyhow it started just fine 15 minutes later. But im sure its going to happen again

Your timing belt is worn out. Some days it runs good because the cogs are lined up. The next time you start it, it maybe backfires just a touch, and it's out of time. Today, it's really out. Or maybe even broken.

    Exactly. It won't start when the timing is off. The belt is jumping from the right place to the wrong place. It won't start, it will start. When it's running, shoot a timing light at your crank and see if the mark is staying in one spot, or jumping around.

I have a 97 geo metro 4 cyl engine the other day broke down the wrecker driver said sounds like fuel pump is bad. I replaced pump and filter still would not start. getting fire. Last night I started it...


first check fuses. (test them)
then check for spark at all 4 cylinders. good.?
if not timed correctly (spark) with timing light, then the cam belt slipped. (oops not changed at 60k, oops)
if all that is good engine runs on test fuel, does it?
if yes, you lost fuel.
easy huh, watch scotty

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.
