I don't know about new or after-market, but there have been a few of them on e-bay during the past few months. I've started buying some replacement parts before I need them. Parts for GEO metros are probably going to become difficult to find in the future. There are already a lot of convertible parts no longer available.
Are you still planning a trip to Washington, D.C? Let me know if you're coming past Joplin.

#876 of 1867 1997 Metro & 1997 Suzuki Swift ????
May 21, 2006 (10:38 pm)
The 1997 Geo Metro & 1997 Suzuki Swift appear to be identical.... what I need is an EXHAUST manifold for the SWIFT- are they interchangeable?
I own BOTH...but can not tell without taking them off- which would be insane !
I can not seem to locate a suzuki swift manifold on google or ebay..any thoughts?

#878 of 1867 fuel filter question on 95 metro
Jun 03, 2006 (2:50 am)
where is the fuel filter located on my 1995 metro 3 cyl?
Jun 03, 2006 (4:44 am)
Pray tell fun loving Geo Owners, what should the idle speed be for a 3 cylinder manual?
I took off the automatic tranny and installed a manual one in my convertible (Vanilla Latte) because I mostly do highway (it has only 50 000 miles on it-80 000 kill-o-meters). At idle it revs at 1500. Is this normal? I thank you for an answer. By the way, the auto tranny, still filled with oil is in my lobby and for sale.

Haynes Repair manual says that Geo metros with carbureted engines 1999 and later have filters INSIDE the fuel tank and require no service. BUT Geo Metros that are fuel injected, have a filter underneath the car, left, front, forward of the gas tank. It is small, about 3" diameter and 3-1/2 inches tall, 2 metal steel pipes coming out of it. I replaced mine, but the mounting bolt broke off- so I just remounted it with a new bolt verse old one. Keep in mind these fuel lines are PRESSURIZED....
Hope this helps-

Haynes does not list a speed sensor, but does instruct how to replace the cable- it is very intense- you basically have to remove the entire instrument cluster- not an easy job ! It is almost as bad trying to replace a burnt out dash light bulb ! Good Luck !!!
