How many mpg do you get from a Geo Metro with a Suzuki motor?

I picked up my Metro used and it already had 100,000+ miles on it. I understand that if they are well cared for 300,000+ can be the life span. In response to your question, I drive 30 miles one way to commute to work and also do some in town driving. I have averaged between 40 and 45 MPG. Gave the car a tune up when I first got it and have had to replace the rear brake pads. My "check engine" light has been on for months and I understand the sensor is bad. Does not affect the performance so I'll probably never replace it. However, I now have a bad dimmer switch...look out! This little puppy costs $400 at the parts store. Fortunately, I've located a one at the local junk yard for $25. I love this little car!

I have a 1991 Geo Metro , I have installed a cat back exhaust system,a K&N aircleaner,ram air,a performance camshaft,underdrive aluminum pulleys,MSD ignition coil,8 degree advance cam sprocket,and a resistor for my AIT,I get an honest 53 mpg at over 70 miles per hour........I am installing headers next month,the car has 168,000 miles on it an has been overheated 12 times by my son,and I have ran out of oil completely a few times, this is an amazing little engine......I have a more powerful engine almost ready to go in as soon as this one dies,but I have been waiting a long time for this one to die. I have a 1998 metro with a 3 cylinder suzuki engine and 5 speed manual transmission (150,000 miles). It is used as a to and from work car and goes through city and light highway. It has averaged 47 miles per gallon for the past year. GM and Suzuki have had a proffessional relationship for years. The two companies currently operate a shared plant that used to produce Suzuki Swifts and Geo/Chevy Metros. It now produces Suzuki Areos and Chevy Aveos. With very few exceptions the 1.3L motors found in these cars are identical. The same for the 1.0L three cylinder. As an aside, both these motors will work (with some slight modifications) in Suzuki Samurais. So when you are junk yard shopping don't pass on either car. They are virtually the same. try cleaning throttle plate and reseting code by discoecting neg battery cable.mine did same thing for months

The Metro and Aveo are not and were not manufactured in the same plant, and they do not share the same engine. The Aveo is made by the former Daewoo company, mostly in South Korea. The Metro was made in Canada, and previously in Japan.

The difference is significant because the Aveo's get poor mpg when compared with the 3 cylinder Metro.

the above answer is correct the aveo and metro are not the same car and have nothing to do with one another.

look for a reset button, either on a tire well or on the steering column on the top May require insertion of spare fuse into special slot in fuseholder to read code. Clear code by temporarily cutting power (easily done by removing negative battery cable. Answer--- If you or a friend has a hand held OBD-II scanner, just connect it to your data link and use it to clear the codes.

Is there a good online resource for step by step repair and maintenance procedures for Geo vehicles?

Autozone.com has a really good web site with repair information for a lot of different vehicles. I subscribe to an AllData web site for my 1992 Metro but Autozone has even more info that is of real use that the site I'm paying for! It doesn't cover all US vehicles, but they cover most of the popular models.

Possible blown head gasket. If the exhaust smells & taste sweet, bubbles in radiator, loss of coolant with no apparent leak, coolant in oil & foam on underside of oil cap, you have a blown head gasket.

How do you replace the geo clutch?

ok first of all this is a very hard part to change. i would not recamend you try this unless you realy know what you are doing. first u need to get the car in the air' then remove the tires and the half shafes "drive lines" then drop the tranny by removing the blots around the bell housing. and any other linkeges. finealy remove the cluch off the fly weel in the bell housing and replace it. then all u need to do is adjust it and put it all back toget her. like i said it is not esay. i just got done doing my 92 geo storm it took about 1 day. the cluch u can get at any parts store for under $200 dollars. it would cost $800 to have it done by a mechanic so it is better to do it your self if u fell u can.

Rocker arm torque specs for a 1995 geo metro 1.3Lit?

about 150 INCH/pounds.... Or 12 ft/lbs torque.... not very much just snug them all up little by little..... then tighten each one a bit more with regular ratchet wrench starting in the middle and working out to both ends. final torque is 12 ft/lbs... reinstall valve cover. Now the important part. You must wait about a half hour before you start the car... If you don't you may shove a valve right down onto a piston.... The lifters need time to settle.

92 Geo w1.0 suzuki engine automatic - How do you check computer codes and clear the history - What controls the check engine light - this one flashes all the time.?

Auto Zone Parts Store will test your car for free. I was able to clear a code for the IAT sensor, temp sensor located on the air breather. Part only available through dealership for about $72.00. Dealership showed me on the parts breakdown diagrahm where to find it. Turned out the sensor was good, the wires going into the connector have been sheared off. Still trying to come up with a new connector, dealership doesn't support, discontinued! Disconnecting the neg battery lead cleared light once problem fixed.

I don't know about the Spectrum. But on a 3 cylinder Metro it 54 foot pounds and on the Sprint it's 48. Depending on which engine you have, you could probably use these specs.

What year did Geo stop making 3 cylinders?

Geo (a subsidiary of GM/Chevrolet) began production of numerous vehicles in 1988. The 3-cylinder in question was developed by Suzuki and used in the Chevrolet Sprint, Pontiac Firefly, Suzuki Swift, and Geo Metro. Geo itself lived for ten years being swallowed by corporate GM in 1998. The Metro lived on as the Chevrolet Metro for two more years with the 3-cylinder 1.0L engine only available in the base hatchback - the sedan with the 1.3L 4-cylinder engine survived into 2001 as a fleet-sales only vehicle. So, year 2000 would basically be your answer.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between a geo prizm gsi and a lsi and how do you identify which one you have?

The Prizm originally came in three trim levels Base, LSi and the short lived GSi. The LSi version came with more standard equipment than the bast model it also had colored bumpers instead of the black ones the base model offered. The GSi model was pure sport oriented it offered a beefed up suspension, four wheel disc brakes, alloy wheels, rear spoiler, red decal graphics, sport steering wheel, optional four speed automatic not available on the base model and the engine had a lot more grunt than the base model 130hp vs 102. The GSi model is very rare and was only produced from 1990-1992.

What causes white smoke from exhaust?

Answer:

I have a 2003 Audi A4 1.8 Turbo around 67,000 miles. It started shooting a lot of white smoke in couple of days. I have read the other answers, and I thought it was burning antifreeze. When I took it to the mechanic shop, the first mechanic said the motor was bad. The second mechanic told me it could be related with turbo. He took the turbo out and yes it was the problem. Turbo was shooting the oil out. Instead of buying an expensive new turbo, I bought the rebuild kit for $40, and rebuilt it. For around $500 the problem is solved. No more smoke , and much better performance. If you have a car with turbo, that might be your problem.

I just bought a 1990 GEO Prism with 5 spped stick. The original couple that owned the vehicle told me of the starting problem. The dealer I got the car from has had it in for service numerous times, but could not pin down the problem I found that if you do not turn the key fully, the car will start. If you wind up turning the key all the way, it will just act dead
