You have to find the alternator then look at where it is connected to the motor there will be a slide mechanism that you will have to loosen which will release the slack on the belt so you can get it off.
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
Yes, you can. I have done many engine swaps on Geos and 1989 geo metro engines are compatible all the way up to 1997. Just make sure if your geo is a stick shift, that the new engine you bought is also a stickshift or you'll have to do some serious work. Hope this helped.
Check the dipstick tube o-ring. that's how I stopped my oil leak on my 1994 Geo Metro. I was having the same problem. The part only cost about .39 cents. Go to any hardware store to find it. Hope this helps
Yes it will. from 1989 - 1995 all geo metros (as well as Suzuki Swift) had the same engines. As long as they both have the same type of transmission and the same size (1.0) it will fit. Hope this helps.
A 97 Geo Metro that cranks but gets no spark is not getting enough power to the ignition coil or the coil itself is bad. The coil use the 12 volts of power provided by the battery and alternator to generate a very powerful spark.
It could be any number of things. Most common for the Geo Metro is one of the main engine fuses went out, one of the battery terminals shorted (happens a lot in older Metros), or a main engine component such as your alternator or starter is not working. Hope this helped :)
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.
It depends on the year. 1989 - 1994 Geo Metros will usually get 35mpg city/50 mpg Highway. 1995 - 2001 will get anywhere from 30mpg city/ 45 mpg highway. If you have the super rare 1991 - 1994 Geo Metro XFI that I have you can get up to 60 mpg. These are all based on Geo Metros with stickshifts.
