Question about Geo Metro
Well ginko is on the right track but there is a way you can test the fuel pump your self,
1._ open the hood
2. Remove the hose connecting from the gac filter to the injecting system(remove it from the engine
3.) Put the end of the hose in a bottle
4.) TURN THE IGNITION ON
5.) gas should pump from the tank to the filter and then into the bottle.
6.) cut the ignition off and reconnect the hose
7.) double check the connection to ensure its in tight and secured propperly.
If you got the gas in the bottle then the pump is working fine
examine its contents for particles or discoloration
if its clogging it may be the filter you can try pulling the hose from the other end and pump that gas to a bottle and examine it..
IU hardly doubth its the fuel pump , but check it any way. as there might be drags in the tank and its plugging up the system. I personally believe its a senson malfunctioning in which case a garage with an auto diagnost tool will be needed. To find and repair the issue.
Chect the pump relay on the main eletrical fuse and relay panel under the hood for overheating.
