A Geo Metro has up to three drive belts, which should be adjusted as follows: A/C 8-10 mm @ 10 kg (22 lbs) Water Pump and Alternator 5-7 mm @ 10 kg (22 lbs) Power Steering 8-10 mm @ 10 kg (22 lbs) All of these are for newly installed belts. To adjust, you loosen the bolt on the belt adjustor (it it a pulley mounted onto a metal plate which can be adjusted by sliding the adjustor bolt along a track) and move the adjustor out by pushing or prying it away until you can only push on the belt as per the specs. Usually you just push on the belt with your thumb (this is actually what the factory service manual pictures) to check its tension. when it is properly adjusted, tighten the bolt up to 23 N-m (17 foot pounds) so the adjustor won't slip. Used belts have a slightly wider range of adjustment. If you tighten it up and it becomes loose quickly, it's time for a new belt. Never let a old belt break on you and leave you stranded, they cost much less than a tow.

No, it will not. After 1994 the Geo Metro became more curved so any part from before 1995 will not fit your geo metro. You can use any hood from 1995 - 1999 depending on the body style.

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 :)
