Question about 1992 Geo Metro
What side is it on
Manual tranny or Autotmatic.?
by speed i guess you mean veh. speed sensor. VSS,
on all 96 Suzuki's with the electronically shift transmission A/T there
are 2, vss sensors.
One in the speedo. and one in the transmission trail shaft.
why not post symptoms, or evidence.
like, my speedo MPH, is dead. or
my ECU reports VSS is dead. (DTC errors)
or my A/T is stuck in limphome mode and its showing DTCs for VSS2.
or I put a A/T ECU in to my M./T CAR?
the ECU uses VSS1 to calculate engine load ( very important)
THe TCM (tranny brain) uses VSS2 to shift electronically
if the TCM sees VSS2 fail, it switches to backup VSS1
and may go to TCM limphome mode and skip gears.
first metro hit.
vss1 is clear there, seen as reed switch.
see that, that is VSS1, it clicks a magic count for every mile
VSS2 , measures l tail shaft speed, true MPH, and can actually
see transmission slip, and warn you . VSS2 is very accurate.
in later years, VSS1 was abandoned. for obvious reasons.

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

The problem I've had with metro's is the pre-cat located in the exhaust manifold itself. If you don't live in California, you don't even need this piece of junk. It overheats the heads and makes it crack, or makes the head gasket leak. Removal is rather easy though. Remove the exhaust manifold and chip that baby out, use a shop vac to remove the pieces. If your model don't have one, it will usually be the one on the exhaust pipe itself. But you already replaced that. Try a short test run with the manifold disconnected and see if acceleration improves to rule this out as a potential problem. Also check your TPS, (Throttle Posotion Switch) with an ohm meter to be sure it hasnt developed any dead spots. Yet another source of trouble seems to be a stuck EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator) valve. This will allow too much exhaust to enter your fresh fuel air mixture, decreasing detonation, and slowing acceleration.
