Hi everyone, newbie alert! ^_^
I did a search and your name was one that came up...
may I ask you please what is entailed with changing out the water pump on our 96 Metro, please? I bought one from Pep Boys, it has the o-ring/ gasket in the box.
Are there any tips you wouldn't mind sharing, or anything you could spell out for me, please?
Hubby is busy with a two-unit outage at San Onofre, so when he is home, which is rare, he's alseep. He needs this car for commuting, so we have a very short window of turn around time to get this project under way & wrapped up.
I'd really appreciate any help or advice from anyone reading this.
Thank you for letting me join - this seems like a wonderful forum, here!
#857 of 1864 98 metro electrical nightmare
Apr 28, 2006 (12:53 pm)
I have a 98 metro that had a valve job and pistons changed. It is now locking the doors by itself and it does not have power locks. The driver side front running light is dim and the car will run great but not re-start for about 30 min. until it cools down after being shut off. It has been in the shop for 5 months and it has many pros stumped. I suggested a priest. Anyone else run into similar problems? If so, HELP!!!
#858 of 1864 1995 Geo idle problem
Apr 28, 2006 (9:21 pm)
1995 Geo, 4cyl, automatic with ac- the engine when cold rev's up high to the point if put into gear willgo 25mph. sometimes the egine idle speeds revs up and down quickly, all by itself. I have change to computer, the throttle body sensor, and cleaned the carb, and linkages, and such, still no help- after the engine is hot, it is 'almost' OK...

Check out www.abebooks.com. I have used this book source for about 5 years and have had great luck. As to new parts, I can't say.

Every summer I do a minor tune-up on my '93 Metro convertible. Along with new plugs I always replace the PCV valve, air filter, and set the timing. I have also replaced the distributor cap and spark plug wires a couple of times, too. It may seem excessive to some people, but it always makes a big difference. Almost all my driving is in town - short trips. I agree that those PCV screws are difficult to get out, even after only a year. The first time was really scary. After reading what you wrote I realized I have never replaced the O2 sensor. The car has 115K miles - probably on the first sensor. The computer has never indicated a problem, but I have always had a roughness in the engine at idle. I guess I will try that next. Take care and thanks for the advice about the screwdriver.

May 03, 2006 (4:53 am)
I have a 97 geo metro lsi. The ignition coil fuse keeps blowing. The car will idle but when you put it in gear the fuse blows. I replaced the coil and it did fine for about two weeks. Then the fuse started blowing again. Now when you turn the key switch the fuse blows. The car won't start now. HELP!!

see post 858, I have a simalr problem with the 95 geo 2 dr LSi- the engine revs up when the engine is cold and shifted into any gear- so high that it is hard to stop the car from going away ... I have changed the computer, the idle sensor, and a number of other things- cleaned linkages,
anyone have any ideas or thoughts?
