Question about 1993 Geo Metro
When I stop it wont start engine turns and it wants to start, when i push it and put it on first it will start, I have changed the relay pump and filter for fuel
It sounds like a weak battery or weak coil. If it cranks slowly, it's most likely the battery. It's unlikely, but it could also be a poor or broken connection in the ignition switch on the wire that is supposed to power the coil during cranking. After having the battery tested (most parts stores will test for free), if it's ok, I would use a multimeter to check the voltage across the coil while the engine is cranking. It should read at least 6 volts some of the time. The voltage will drop out or fluctuate, this is normal. If you're unsure, the coil is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace.

SOURCE: 92 Geo Metro Not Starting
Does the engine crank? Do the instrument panel lights dim when you attempt to start it?
If the answer to both of those is no, then you may have the same problem I have had on occasion - the "clutch safety switch" may be stuck and locks out the starter.
If it cranks ok and it has spark, there is a possibility that the fuel injector is "stuck". It happened to me once with my '92. The problem was solved by accident when I used a multimeter to check the voltage across the injector. I watched the voltage drain down to 0 and then I was able to start it and it worked just fine.

Pull one or two sparkplugs and check them for moisture; not fuel, but for water beads.
I don't know how long your engine ran after losing coolant but there is a chance that you lost the head gasket and have gotten water into the cylinders.

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)
