Where is no 1 spark plug wire on geo tracker to left or right of hold down bolt
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.
How do I test a distributor in a 1990 Geo Tracker?
It will not start.
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.

1994 geo metro 5 speed no reverse
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 !!!
