This is in the fuel delivery system. A faulty fuel pump, the
electric fuel pump wiring could be loose it is a prong plug
at the gas tank. Check the fuel filter,Check the fuel line,
maybe a additive could help in the fuel. The carburetor float
could have a pin hole. Take car to a carb shop have them
test the carb ,test the vacumn pressure. Sometimes these
problems are caused by faulty ERG and broken plastic joints
in the smog system. If all this checks out neutral switch
at the automatic transmission could be loose or faulty.

Simple stuff: Battery poles are gunky? Clean them with a
wire brush that is acid be careful. Inspect the battery
clamps are they broken be sure. Check the battery cables
make sure they are sound. Remember the alternator is three
phase. Once it is started remove a positive pole wire does
the engine die yes replace alternator. Sometimes this can
happen with a faulty bulb in the brake light check to
make sure they are dry. Sounds like a short in the wiring

Could you E mail or post a picture of the part that is giving
you trouble. Maybe a video with sound. I know this is going
to sound odd but a stethoscope recording . Just take a small
mike and tape it to the part and operate it maybe that
would shed some light. Maybe next time I visit the junk yard
I will look for a replacement let you know what they want
for it maybe it a simple crack in a vacumn type valve that
is not opening and closing at the right time. This i a mechanical issue something is not opening and closing properly

Check the air filter and fuel filter. Do you drive in dusty
conditions? Take to a carb shop could be a dirty throat.

Ok, I am new here. I just bought a 2000 Metro. When I go to shift it from park into any of the drive gears, it sounds like when you put a tranny into park when driving...kinda a grinding sound...and the car does not move. It runs/sounds fine in park and neutral. I was told its some kind of relay or something inside the tranny. It sounds like it could be something that just turned loose or something like that. Any ideas?

I need to do some routine maintenance on my 93 metro. I don't have the owners manual and I need to know the valve tolerances for my 55hp rocket. AKA the Suzuki Outrunner. The previous owner doesn't remember the last time he checked the valves.

Any autoparts can supply parts and also ebay.
Do not worry. I got 3 of those and never quit. Do not abused. Replaced oil every 3500 milles. Depend where you are, but if you are around North of US, used 10/30 all year around, but in January and February are recomended to switch to 5/30.
Those engine are very sensitive for dirt.
Any question - let me know. Mark
