There should be a label under the hood that tells you what the setting is. If you don't have that label, you can call your local Suzuki dealer and they can tell you. If you have to guess, I'd try around 6 to 10 degrees before top dead center. Or you can just do like me and set it by ear. If it starts with little effort and you don't get any pinging or valve rattle under heavy load or going up hills, you've got it pretty close.
-6 degrees BTDC
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
Probably computer controlled and not adjustable
# 1 is closest to the timing belt and furtherest from the transmission.
On the 3 cylinder model the firing order is 1-3-2
The Geo Metro was the only Geo to have a 3cylinder engine.
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.
On my 2000 Metro with a 1.3L the mark and slot marked with the "E" are used.
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.
One car was the 1999 Chevrolet Metro , you could get a 1.0 liter / 61 cubic inch , 3 cylinder engine
The engine and transmission of a manual 3 cylinder weighs 135lbs.
timing does not need to be set on the 1.3l engine in model year 1999 as it is a distributor less igniton system all timing is done by the ecm
It's the longest cable in your plugs.If you stay at the front of your engine,is the first at your left hand.
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 )
can someone tell me how to adjust timing on a geo metro 1996
On engine casing, passenger's side, on flange that bolts to transmission. Probably covered with engine gunk.
the rotation is counter clock wise and the firing order is 1-3-2.
twist the distributor while pointing a timing light at the camshaft pulley and degree scale, after shorting a couple pins on a covered connector above the master cylinder
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
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).
need to know how to set the timing marks on a 1993 Geo Metro?
valve seal possition
If it is the standard 1.0 Litre 3 Cylinder Suzuki engine then it takes 5W-30
