The Air Conditioning compressor serpentine belt can be changed by adjusting the small belt tensioner idler wheel. This small idler wheel has a center nut (I think it's 14 mm) you must back off first so the wheel can slide up & down in a slot.There is an adjusting bolt on the bottom of the wheel bracket. When the idler center nut is loose, put a socket on the bolt head (facing upwards) and turn to draw the idler wheel downwards. This will slacken the belt and you will then be able to slip the belt off the pulley. Remove & install the new belt and trun the adjusting bolt back tightening the idler wheel onto the belt until your satisfied with the tension. Tighten the center nut and check this doesn't change your tension. This procedure needs you to remove a plastic splash shield in the fender well. You can do this.. it's a "one beer" job! DangerDude

Will a 85 geo metro engine work in 95 geo metro?

If its from 85 then its NOT a geo metro engine. It is probably a Chevrolet Sprint engine because they only started making Geos in 88. If you need an engine for your 95 Geo then you could use one of the following: 1991 - 1995 Geo Metro engine. 1991 - 1995 Suzuki Swift Engine, and 1991 - 1995 Pontiac FireFly engine. Hope this helps :)

The 1996 Chevy 1.3 liter engine timing marks can be found on the front main pulley and on the flywheel. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of both locations.

Why might a 1988 Chevy Sprint Metro act like it is stuck in neutral after replacing the clutch and everything except the flywheel?

If you install the throwout bearing incorrectly it can hold the pressure plate open and there will be no mechanical linkage between the transmission and the engine. Before you take it apart to check try adjusting the clutch linkage.
