SOURCE: Need fluid specs for 1992 Geo Metro LSI convertible 1.0L

I always get either the Chilton's Manual or the Haynes Repair Manual (my favorite) for about $20 - $35 at Auto Zone or Pep Boys or any other Retail Auto Parts Store. These give not only fluid specs [capacities and recommended types], but also step by step detailed instructions on repairing anything wrong with that specific model of car, based on a complete tear down and rebuild. A must for used car owners.

i have no idea about an idle up solenoid relay but i had the same problem.. there is a hex screw on the motor that takes a very small allen wrench head where you can adjust the idle from there. its near the throttle body

SOURCE: When i start my 1997 Geo Metro, it often sputters

Try this
Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

92 geo metro with automatic transmission will not go out of 1st gear sometimes


my guess is its not electric shifted, (what trans model is it)
so step 2 in the FSM book says.... and i paraphrase
step1 is stall test (my guess passes in 1st and reverse)
step 2, line pressure test?
if that fails, tranny is bad.

I took motor/tranny out of well maintained/well running 1994 Geo metro xf and installed them in a 1995 geo metro LSI. everything went well i had to use the 1995 intake and throttle body due to wiring...


Yes, because the specs are different... most manufatures change the specs on vehicles every four years, so 90-94 is most likely all the same, but then you will have 95-99 an so on an so on.. Good Luck

Do the valves need to be adjusted on a 92 geo metro lsi


No. Geo Metros use hydraulic lifters which can not be adjusted. If you Metro is making excessive valve noise, the lifters are probably worn out or the oil level is low.

Is it normal for a 96 geo lsi when its at 60 for the rpm to be at 3.5?


It's perfectly normal, the engine you got in that car is very small and it means you have less gear ratios, once on the top gear the car will speed up by staying on that gear and rev'ing up the engine.

Where to fill gear oil in manual 5 speed 1990 geo lsi


It should be the same place as a 1991 Metro, on the back side of the transaxle there is a plug that takes a 15/16 wrench to remove. the plug faces the drivers side tire. If oil drips out when you remove the plug it is full. Otherwise use your finger to see if you can touch the oil. Fill with some type of syringe. jeb
