Check all other fuses. Before the fuse blew, you can have damaged lots of electronics. Even almost 20 year old cars do have electronics and relays.

I would focus on what's making your car hot.... a bad catalytic converter sounds like what you have...It's before the muffler..It gets clogged up...makes car run a little hotter and harder to start....Google it

I think it unlikely the injector would be an independent cause and would merely be responding to instructions from the management computer.
Probably less likely the fault is with the management computer and most likely information being supplied to the computer is defective because of a sensor or wiring defect.

If a visual inspection reveals no problem with wiring or connections, it will really be a task for a good scanner, laptop or oscilloscope...

I am not familiar with the model. Single point injection would normally inject almost continuously and if the wiring diagram was checked it would probably show the injector power comes direct from the same supply as the ECU uses and the ECU will provide the ground path if the ECU (ECM) is good and is receiving the correct data from the various sensors.
This provides possibilities: -
Bad ECU.
Bad wiring.
Insufficient information from sensors.

If there is an immobiliser it is worth checking it is properly disarmed.

Joe, Kelly Blue Book for a "94 Geo Metro. With average mileage 100,000 plus, and in Fair condition. Is $299-$648.
Time o cut your losses and go get you another car. Or head out to the junkyard. A tranny form the yard will probably cost as much as the rig is worth. On the positive side they are reasonably easy to replace and light too.

Good luck with this project !!!

On most inline engines the general rule is as follows. Stand with the engine belts and pulleys nearest to you and look across the length of the engine towards the gearbox. 'Number One' cylinder is usually the one nearest to you and numbered away from you towards the transmission housing. On a Geo Tracker that will most likely be the one nearest the grille on the front of the vehicle.

wont go to high idle
this is the IAC failing not TPS, the tps only signals to the ECU
that you are at idle.

carbon (Slept 3 nights,(on vac 30 day)\
answer 1 wire at a time. or it cross fires.
my guess is you meant changing carbon core
HV spark wires, but the plug wells are like oil pits. (flooded) SUPER COMMON.

(not spark tips carbon-ed up. right)

get he MAG wires and win.! max life and better spark!!!

all G16b do this seen 100s and all C.O.P engines.
1 cause
owners did not do full 60k mile tuneup
per operators guide, lost it have it ask.
the valve lash step, demands a new valve cover gasket set.
if not it will fAIL, it will,like pissn on a sparkplug
bam. like texas talk, i do...sorry

and a cam belt.. forgot that too?
that is fail 2 , in the woods,
or like train light in the tunnel.

not one of those parts last the life of engine
the real reasons tuneups were invented
and why planes dont crash (of ddumbb things like this)

tuneups on this engine, only make long walk home
on other engines, most DOHC. boom head valves bent or far far worse.

if lost
firing order

Check the fuses. You might have blown one of them while charging the battery.

Starting page 183/185 I see a fuse for ignition(above link)

Geo Cars &... | Answered on Mar 03, 2020

Start at the spark plug end of each plug lead and check each lead is dry and not damaged. Using insulated pliers or insulated grips, and a new spark plug, rest the spark plug threaded section on the engine block. Crank the engine and look for a clean, bright spark. You might need a helper to do this. Repeat this for all the plug leads.
ONLY REMOVE ONE PLUG LEAD AT A TIME. Refit the plug lead your using BEFORE you remove the next
one. If there is damage replace ALL of them, then you get a constant spark on all the spark plugs.
Next, remove the distributor cap and examine it closely. There should be no cracks or splits In the body. The terminals inside should be clean, bright and shiny. Removing only one lead at a time check the connecting holes in the top of the distributor for damage or corrosion. If ANY damage or corrosion replace the cap.
Examine the rotor inside the distributor. The rotor should be undamaged and the metal terminal should be clean and shiny. If damaged or corroded replace it!
If it's an older 'points' setup check the moving points as they wear out over time. The more modern electronic distributors will need a specialist Auto Electrician to test the electronics inside it. Yours is probably the electronic type.

total check the engine. check the cooling system ,check the engine pistons, check the piston valve ,check the the thermostat which also part of the cooling system .cooling system ;means these the parts of engine that provide the engine not to over heat .

what is the question?

Flickering displays are a sign of a failing backlight for the LCD. If device is still under warranty, contact for RMA (return merchandise authorization). If not, then the GPS is a bit dated and would be best to replace with a newer model with updated maps and Glonass satellite support. Repair not under warranty would not be cost effective
