can you change the alternator belt in a 1998 Chevy metro from under the car.
Where is the tensioner
If the engines are the same size then yes (ie) 3 cylinder 1.0L to 3 cylinder 1.0L.
front of the engine
yes, if it's a 3 cylinder Mr Geo Metro yes, if it's a 3 cylinder Mr Geo Metro
where can you find an engine diagram of a geo metro 3 cylinder 1.0L engine
One car was the 1999 Chevrolet Metro , you could get a 1.0 liter / 61 cubic inch , 3 cylinder engine
The Geo Metro was the only Geo to have a 3cylinder engine.
Disconnect battery a battery terminal Losen the Alternator bolt which is located on the up/down bracket. Once losen, you can adjust the tightness/slackness of the belt. Hope this helps, james
There are now not many cars in the United States that are made with a 3 cylinder engine. A couple of the vehicles that were once made with a 3 cylinder engine is a Geo Metro and Dihatsu Charade.
There are cars that have engines with only ( 3 ) engine cylinders such as : The Chevrolet Metro with the 1.0 liter , 61 cubic inch , 3 cylinder engine ( 1999 )
Sure will. Any Metro motor from 1989-1997 will fit in it assuming that they are of equal size (ie) 3 cylinder 1.0L to 3 cylinder 1.0L. You can put a bigger engine like a 1.3L from a Swift in it but it requires a bit of tweaking.
The engine and transmission of a manual 3 cylinder weighs 135lbs.
It's the longest cable in your plugs.If you stay at the front of your engine,is the first at your left hand.
On engine casing, passenger's side, on flange that bolts to transmission. Probably covered with engine gunk.
how do you replace 1997 alternator belt
I HAVE HAD A GEO METRO IN 1 FORM OR ANOTHER SINCE 1987. TO ANSWER THE QUESTION ON ENGINE COMPATIBILITY ANY METRO 3CYL ENGINE FROM 1989 -1997 WILL WORK. I PREFER 1993.5 UP DUE TO A MORE DURABLE TIMEING BELT

If it is the standard 1.0 Litre 3 Cylinder Suzuki engine then it takes 5W-30
The alternator is basically the tensioner on a three cylinder Metro. The bolt that holds the alternator tight to its adjustment bracket must be loosened. You may need to pry on the alternator to slide it so the belt will be loose enough to remove. After you have removed the old belt and put the new one in the correct way, the alternator will definitely need to be pried on to tighten belt, then tighten bolt on adjuster. Just be careful what you pry on.
it goes on the crank water pump and alternator
No, a 91 metro transmission will not fit in a 98. A 91 will fit any metro between 1988 - 1996 though. After 1996 a lot of Metro's became 4 Cylinder which made them different from the previous generation metros. It may fit if the engine sizes are correct (1.0 litre 3 cylinder to the same but do not mix and match).
in the alternator
Depends on your engine: 1.0 liter 3-cylinder = 3 spark plugs, 1.3 liter 4-cylinder = 4 spark plugs
