Engine almost dies when put in revers?
Could be a transmission problem, assuming an automatic transmission.
1988 Corsica runs fine till you take off and then come to a stop.The engine revs till the car goes below 5 mph it drops the car runs rough and almost dies You put into gear and it dies?
You just put a used engine into your 1996 geo metro and for some reason it is using way to much gas and it is blowing out some blue smoke from the tailpipe what do you think this could be from?
I'm really sorry to be the one to tell you this, but the blue smoke is from the engine burning oil. This almost certainly is from bad piston rings. The engine needs to be replaced or rebuilt, because this problem will get steadily worse until the engine dies completely. You should have had the engine checked over before you got it.
