there is a sensor on the brake (so the pedal has to be pushed to shift from park), a cable interlock on the ignition switch (so the key has to be in the run position to shift from park) the interlock solenoid is located at the front of the shifter mount (under the plastic console piece) where it meets the body. there should be a small access panel about the size of a golf ball on the drivers side of the center console. Just below where the drivers knee would be. Take out the screw, pop out the panel, stick your finger (or screwdriver) in the hole. You are feeling for a small plastic rectangle, and is spring loaded. this is the manual release. !!DONT FORGET TO SET THE PARKING BRAKE!! Push the plastic piece toward the front of the vehicle to unlock the shifter. gently, and slowly pull the shifter out of park. I say slowly because you dont want your finger getting caught in anything.

Yes you can. All Geo Metro engines are compatible from 1989 - 1997. Just make sure that they both have the same transmission or you'll have to do a lengthy and expensive conversion.

The type of oil that should be put into a 1995 Geo Metro is 5 W 30. The car uses approximately 5 quarts of oil.

If the engines are the same size then yes (ie) 3 cylinder 1.0L to 3 cylinder 1.0L.

If it has a manual transmission then you put it in neutral and release the parking brake. Always be in the drivers seat and have someone else push you. Put the key to start and pop start the clutch (which means pushing your foot all the way on the clutch, putting it into first and quickly releasing the clutch in 1 swift motion) this shouls start it up. Hope this helps.
