There could be lots of reasons. You need several things mechanically to make the engine work: fuel, air (compressed), and an ignition source (spark).

Without getting too technical, check the basic things first. Are the spark plugs clean and not broken? Are the spark plug wires hard and possibly cracked or are they nice and soft the way they should be like new wires? Is the carb or fuel injectors clean? Is the air filter dirty? Is the fuel filter clogged? Are the fuel lines/connections leaking?

Check those basic things first.....then move onto more complicated things next.

How do you check power steering fluid in a 1991 Metro Geo


I don't think you do! Unless the '91 is a lot different than my '92, it doesn't have power steering.

Help my 91 geo metro keep killing my battery and when i turn on the blinker it sounds like its shorting out. i un plunged the battery from the alternator wile running and it continued to run so i dont...


A little more specifics please. Not a good idea to run alternator with cables disconnected. Why do you feel its shortin out? engine not running remove baterry positive post and check for a itty ***** spark when you touch cable clamp to its post. That will tell you if something is drawing power from your battery.Make sure your doors are closed and ignition is off. Good luck.

If your geo is losing power ,first thing to do is a comprision test .
if its testing any thing below 100 psi you may have to replace the piston rings.

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.
