I will post a picture so you can ID the valve. It is on the top of the engine bolted to the intake.

Egr not working 97 geo metro lsi

H3LL most of those old 90s car it does not work now.
(ive cured many) (some take 5hours hard labor De-carbonizing the thing)

how do you know that,?
1 P0400 DTC errors?
2 pinging?
3 fails smog?,,.
is it too hard to tell the story>?

This is Suzuki swift if you had not notices
open hood lookup see that sticker, says SUZUKI
clear as day, and means parts more easy to find.
In the USA we got G engines. G10,G13 top sizes
all suzuki's this era
have horrible Rube Goldberg EGR
vacuum and cat backpressure, magic,err horrors
test 1.
find the EGR main,
see rear and the skeleton-ized frame?
hot engine, we use vacuum tool on its nipplefitting
and it stalls the engine or near, 800 goes to 400. rpm.
that means the 5hour labor part is ok.
leaving vacuum parts or electric VSV

if the diaphram fails to move the valve is bad.
if it moves fully (1/4" or more ok.
so remove it, and clean the carbon seen here.
valve ports. put back pass stall test now?
if hot the hidden exhaust path is blocked.

end, im not doing the vacuum/elect, cat pressure side now.. until you report stall test results.
this test here 1 test cuts the job in half.

My 1997 Geo Metro would sputter & stop in traffic & Firestone said I need a Valve Intake Motor

Old post, my first metro..... (im a tracker fixer)
firestone ? tire store? what is their service, do the fix cars?
in canada? please post country, usa and canada cars are different.
how can an none existent company GEO authorize anything, wow.
my guess is you asked firestone to do the impossible and they gave you the std, corporate answer, (bs)

why not post the symptoms.
then if you need a part, say what it is.
or why a test fails.?
or how to use tools.? how to do the tests>/ or ?

stalling engines are caused by over 50 reasons. i have a list.
but why do that.? why guess?
why not diagnose it or do the tune up first.
did you tune it up yet?
that is, do the 60kmile (100km) service steps? if not why not?
1liter engine? which engine? you did not say , nor the VIN.
the timing belt must not be run over 60k miles.
Topfail for all belt engines, never serviced. and now has late valve timing, (huge loss in power and tons of black nasty smoke)

same with filters and spark plugs/cap/rotor, wireset.

if you read your op guide it told you to check the EGR at 50k,
did you do that.? they tend to get filthy , thus the top service point.

EGRs love to stick open and stall any engine.
especially just before coming to a stop sign.
Can you prevent that stall , with a fast acting right foot?
yes, then if it was easy, it might be ISC sticking
if hard to , then EGR stuck open.
if impossible. (lost fueling, lost all spark, or lost 12v power to ECU, or horrible lost engine compression.
not doing valve lash at 60k, invites burned to crisp exhaust valves.
and stalls hot.

Does a 1996 Geo Metro have the same engine as a 1997 Geo Metro?

join a metro forum,

few cars on earth had one engine , most have options
the metro had 3.
so if both cars had the same engine , are they the same.
is the real question.
read the wiki on geo metro.
here is one other issue , quoted
1997 featured the four-cylinder engine with a new sixteen-valve head (rather than the eight valves of the earlier design)

that means the EFI is different and head. (at least)

My geo metro egine have a ticking sound

If you have adjusted your valves and the ticking persists then try changing your exhaust manifold gasket. A leaking exhaust manifold gasket will often make a loud ticking sound.

Valves in modern cars just don't stick, you must have another issue here.
