Sounds like the timing is retarded. When was the last time the timing belt replaced. The timing belt is wearing out and stretching causing the timing to ****** itself.

1992 geo metro 1.0 engine seems to flood and idles high can't adjust idle it's low as it goes and still idles high timing is right on any suggestions?

You might also check the single injector, had a friend's that the fuel pressure regulator had been messed with and was over-pressurizing the injector, that weakened the injector allowing it to flood at idle and also when cut off (the injector was leaking)

Swapped motor in '94 metro 4 cyl.

Check the mass airflow sensor and the throttle position sensor - either of those would cause similar problems if they're reading incorrectly.

The check balls I put back in were slightly larger. You should be able to get them from any transmission shop or the Chevy dealer. I got my gasket from the Chevy dealer.
