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.

Probably computer controlled and not adjustable

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

# 1 is closest to the timing belt and furtherest from the transmission.

On the 3 cylinder model the firing order is 1-3-2

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.

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.

On my 2000 Metro with a 1.3L the mark and slot marked with the "E" are used.

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.

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

can someone tell me how to adjust timing on a geo metro 1996

the rotation is counter clock wise and the firing order is 1-3-2.

On engine casing, passenger's side, on flange that bolts to transmission. Probably covered with engine gunk.

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

need to know how to set the timing marks on a 1993 Geo Metro?

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 timing marks on a 1993 Geo Metro are located on the on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. They must be aligned together to ensure proper initial timing.

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.

Do you mean interference type or non-interference type? If this is what your asking, it is a non-interference type. this means that the timing belt can brake and no damage to the engine will accur. interference type means that if the belt brakes the pistons can hit the valves and bend and or brake stuff. don't worry about it on a geo metro I had two brake and it just stops running and replacing the timing belt takes 45 min to replace, it's easy. "BUGS"

I suffered a timing belt failure in a 3 cylinder 91 Chevy sprint, doing about 120 kilometers per hour(about 70 mph), with no damage to the engine. The engine end bearing seals were starting to leak, spraying oil on the belt, causing very premature failure... after a replaced belt, and seals, I've put on another 15,000 kilometers, and the car still goes :) such a failure is bound to damage the engine.or something important.
