So what engine is in it? It always helps to state which engine you have, trans, 4 door ect. Should be near the harmonic balancer either attatched to ther front of the engine, or bolted to the engine block.

Does anyone know the output of a cmp in a 1996 geo prizm 1.6L? It's in the distributor.


its a 5v square wave.

you can see that at alldata dot com.

the 1996 will throw a DTC for CMP , DID IT?
if engine is dead, the DTC shows up cranking,
with a code or RPM dead.
In USA< can speak for Canada, where are you, uSA or canada.

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)

Service engine light on. 1994 Geo Metro


Take the vehicle to Auto Zone or any other Local auto parts store that will read the codes with a scanner. This is most likely the o2 sensor which is pretty common. The part will cost about $40 plus the cost of the special socket to remove and install it. A repair shop will charge you about $140 to $170 to do the job. It is located on the exhaust manifold or Exhaust pipe. If the code indicates an upper or Lower then you will have to locate it using a repair manual. I recommend Haynes but you can use just about any manual as long as it shows the part location.

95 GEO Metro starting problem . A code 42 appears. which is crank angle sensor, this car does not appear to have one. it turns over but no ignition.


42 is CAMSHAFT position sensor; its in the distibutor. Code 42 will set if there is no signal for 2 seconds. Resistance at the sensor terminals should be about 205-255 ohms. There should be a small AC voltage present at the terminals if the engine is turned; .1 to .4 volts. Air gap between rotor ridge and sensor ridge .008 to .016. Cam is belt-driven, is belt good?
