Geo metro timing

Just rebuilt my 92 geo metro. Did not mark the ditributor before pulling it. Everything is electronic on the distributor and I am supposed jumper a plug but can't find a pic and don't want to short anything before putting a timing light on it! Set it by ear but I can tell it is a little off! Can anybody can send me a pic of a jumper lead installed?

    I need to set the timing on my '92 Metro, but my manual only shows how to jumper it for the diagnostic mode on a 4 pin connector but not the 6 pin connector that mine has.



    The location of the connector I think I can help with; its at the back of the engine compartment on the driver's side right under the hood.

How do u replace 1992 Geo Metro Ignition, is it easy to do yourself?


Make certain you get the right Distributor. There are two different types Electric and Vacuum timing-advance versions. The coil is as simple as the plugs. But be ready to shell out some dough.

Before you pull the distributor out, make certain the rotor is pointing towards some area in the interior of the engine bay you can point the new one in easily.

Then it's just pull and plug wires! Have fun !!!!!!!

1993 geo metro timeing is off


Get a strobe timing light, hook the aligator clamps to the battery and the C clamp to the #1 spark plug wire. This makes the lamp flash every time #1 plug fires. Point it at the main pully and you should see it flash and light up a mark on the pully. If you see no mark, stop the engine and look for it. Paint it white with some correction fluid, then try again. You will also need to loosen your distributor, which has two bolts holding it tight. You can tell which bolts as they have elongated holes to allow you to adjust timing. Once you see the white timing marks, (with engine warmed up) rotate the loosened distributor until the mark lines up with the 5 or 6 on the plastic timing belt cover near the pulley. This would put your timing 5 or 6 degrees advanced. I think factory is 5.5, so this should be close.

Do the valves need to be adjusted on a 92 geo metro lsi


No. Geo Metros use hydraulic lifters which can not be adjusted. If you Metro is making excessive valve noise, the lifters are probably worn out or the oil level is low.

Ignition timing for 1991 Pontiac Firefly or 1991 Chevrolet Sprint or 1991 Geo Metro


for 1991 geo metro 1.0 liter 3 cyl engine the timing is 6 degrees before top dead center. you will need a tachometer because the rpm must be 800 when you set the timing. also you will need to disconnect the vacuum advance to the distributor, and plug the hose to avoid a vacuum leak. (alternate method is to pinch the vacuum advance hose going to the distributor while you are setting the timing) Good Luck!
