Question about 1992 Geo Metro

1 Answer

92 geo metro with automatic transmission will not go out of 1st gear sometimes

Even if shifted manually the transmission will not shift out of 1st gear sometimes. I changed the transmission filter and oil and the same thing is happening. Sometimes it shifts smoothly and fine and other times it will not shift.

My guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.

The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.

SOURCE: I have 1992 Geo Metro

Did you change the transmission? You state you are trying to change it. I woulkd think all you need is a new valve body. If the valve body is bad it will not shift the rans automaticly all the time. It has pistons in it and they are sticking. When they do that the trans will shift manually only

Transmission module


automatic transmission, right?
dont shift , impliese but fails to say, by whom.???
on mine a 5speed manual stick, it can't shift by many a way.
ill take a wild guess and its an A/T
Don't shift.

ok, now I scratched head, do you mean
it stuck in 1st gear.
or did you mean its slipping , and feels like in neutral at all times.
or skips gears?

during these early transitional years, they had 2 transmissions
the newer one is electrically shifted.
and going farther we need to know what trans is really truely there.
we are blind here and cant see what you have.
if your car is a TCM shifted tranny (TCM is tranny brain,puter)
it has scan codes. so dump the tcm error codes.

or log into alldata.com and read the TCM page.
its not a secret , all metro FSM cover this.
fsm means , the Factory service manual. get one.
or log in.

if the rpms rise and car dont speed up , in direct proportions that is slip.

not sure what shift manually means,
Drive to low? low to high. what? be exact in statements/
better stated what it does good and bad, and when. all modes.
are you saying the trans shirts perfectly in AUTOMATIC when cold./?

Geo metro transmission slips and will not down shift into passing gear with pedle pressed to the floor


Auto Trans I had to replace solenoid in transmission there are two of them when you drop the pan. After testing with a 12 volt battery one was bad replaced and transmission works fine. Mine was a 1996, cost about $90 for solenoid.
