Code 46 is indeed the trouble code for the Idle Speed Controller which is that big black box thingy on your throttle body. A lot of Chilton-type manual books omit that code because the ISC isn't found on pre 94 Metros. The ISC is a computer controlled auto-adjuster for the engine idle.

An important note: code 46 is often caused by misadjusted distributor timing. As you probably know, timing affects the idle, and if improper timing moves the idle beyond the ISC's adjustment range, the check engine light will come on and diagnostics will return code 46.

I have a 2000 metro the trans shifts hard when you first start up from 2nd to 3rd. But after that it seams not to shift down from 3rd no matter how many times you spot and go again.


Before guessing at transmission problems, check the fluid level (car warmed up, engine running in Park on level ground) and have the PCM scanned for trouble codes FIRST.
Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.
Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

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.

Likely not, knowing that the caris NOT an OBDII computer system it's very unlikely that you have anything more than maybe an O2 sensor needing changed if anything
