1994 Geo Metro Problems

Distributor Cap and Spark Plug Wires May Fail

The Geo Metro uses a 1.0L 3 cylinder engine that is very sensitive to faulty spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. When one of these ignition system components fail, the Geo Metro will experience one or more of the following:

-Stalling

-Difficulty starting

-Stuttering with loss of power

-Hesitation at various engine speeds

If these issues are related to the components listed above, changing the damaged component will resolve the issue. Less common possible causes are the ignition coil, alternator, and crankshaft position sensor. 

Engine vacuum leak from throttle body gasket

An engine vacuum leak from the throttle-body base gasket may result in a rough idle and/or stumble on acceleration. If this occurs, replacement of the failed gasket will be necessary.

Warped rotors due to uneven lug nut torque

The brake pedal may pulsate on apply due to warped brake rotors. This condition is commonly caused by uneven lug nut torque. Proper lug nut torque is recommended to try and avoid this concern.

I love my 1994 Geo Metro XFI! I worry that it is an orphan and 12 inch tires are hard to find, but it gets about 40mpg and I can reach the passenger side door and roll that window down. I do not have a/c, but it has a great heater. I have had some electrical issues - overhead lamp and gage dispay lighting have gone out. I paid to get the overhead lamp fixed and the gage display lights came b...
Forgot to mention in last posting - I have seen and read reviews in other places from many people who have driven these cars 170,000 to over 200,000 miles and all seem to love them!
Had one of these in 1986 when it was called Chevy Sprint. That one overheated easily in traffic, and the head warped before having 8,000 miles on it. That explained where the antifreeze was going (into the oil, making it foam). It also had an oil leak shortly after I bought it. I had it at the same time I had a 1977 Lincoln Town Car which weighed 5200 lbs, sat 3 in the front, 4 in the back ...
