I've found the Haynes Repair Manual that you can get at Auto Zone to be the best one there is. They have step by step instructions with pictures on repairing or replacing just about anything on your auto. You can get them for around $20 - 25. Is yours a 3 or 4 cylinder? Auto Zone has a new service where you can actually look up repair instructions for your vehicle with pictures. Here's the instructions for a 3 cylinder for your year, make and model:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  2. Loosen but do not remove the four coolant pump pulley bolts.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  4. Remove the lower splash shield.
  5. Remove the air conditioner compressor drive belt.
  6. Remove the lower alternator cover plate bolts, loosen the alternator adjusting bolt and remove the drive belt.
  7. Remove the crankshaft pulley.
  8. Remove the coolant pump pulley.
  9. Remove the timing belt.
  10. Remove the oil level dipstick and guide tube.
  11. Remove the alternator adjusting bracket from the water pump.
  12. Remove the water pump rubber seals.
  13. Remove the water pump mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces thoroughly.
  2. Check the water pump by hand for smooth operation. If the pump does not operate smoothly or is noisy, replace it.
  3. Install the pump using a new gasket. Tighten bolts to 115 inch lbs.. (13 Nm).
  4. Install new rubber seals.
  5. Install the upper alternator adjusting bracket and tighten bolt to 17 ft. lbs.. (23 Nm).
  6. Install the oil level dipstick and guide tube.
  7. Install the timing belt.
  8. Install the water pump pulley and leave the bolts hand tight.
  9. Install the crankshaft pulley.
  10. Install the water pump/alternator drive belt.
  11. Install the lower alternator cover plate and tighten bolts to 89 inch lbs.. (10 Nm).
  12. Install the air conditioner compressor drive belt by releasing the tensioner pulley and installing belt.
  13. Install the lower splash shield and lower vehicle.
  14. Tighten water pump pulley mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs.. (24 Nm).
  15. Adjust the water pump drive belt tension and tighten alternator adjustment bolt to 17 ft. lbs.. (23 Nm).
  16. Install the air cleaner assembly.
  17. Refill the cooling system.
  18. Connect the negative battery cable.
  19. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temperature. Check for leaks and refill cooling system as necessary.

Geo metro 1996


I believe it will since the model of car is not greatly changed over 4 years and the 95 was the first in the revamped Geo series. They mostly just change the body style not the engine parts.

Have 1991 geo metro convertible, it misses a lot when driving it seems like a fuel pump or maybe spark plugs?


Could be many things, but need to check compression first. Buy a compression tester and follow directions. Usually it will need rings AND valve job if it's near 150,000 miles. If not compression, change plugs, then wires, then cap and rotor, in that order. If not better, try Techron in your fuel for three tankfulls. WalMart has it for $9.

I cant get the water pump pulley off 96 EF


It's easiest to loosen the 4 bolts that hold the pulley on before you remove the belt; it helps to hold it. Same to install; snug them up install the belt; then tighten them securely.

Hey iam looking for tail lights for suzuki swift 1995 model can you help me please.


Get to know the sister cars. The Suzuki Swift is almost completely identical to the Geo Metro and the Pontiac Firefly: the only differences were that the Metro and the Firefly were available in sedan form and the Swift wasn't. Also, no changes were made to any of these cars between 1995 and 1997. If you look for parts for any of these cars they will work.

Vehicles mentioned:
1995, 1996, 1997 Suzuki Swift
1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro 2/3dr
1995, 1996, 1997 Pontiac Firefly 2/3dr

In addition the only things that changed after 1997 were the bumpers and front turn signals (and that the Metro became a Chevy) so taillights for later Swifts/Metros/Fireflies should work as well.
