#944 of 1864 Geo Metro Engine & Transmission changeover ???
Aug 20, 2006 (6:39 pm)
I have a 1995 Geo Metro coupe with a 3 cyl/stick. I also have a 1996 Geo Metro sedan with a 4 cyl/auto. I want to put the 4 cyl from the '96 into the '95...I know this can be done. My son wants to keep it a stick...
Can I take the 4 cyl and bolt the std trans to it and install it into the '95?
...did they ever make a 4 cyl with a std transmission for
...I just got done bolting up the std trans to the 4 cyl,
but now I noticed that rear engine mount does not line up by 2" and I wonder if the drive axles will work...?
....will I have to change the computer & wiring harness?
(will the '95 3 cyl computer run my '96 4 cyl engine if I get engine mts & drive axles figured out...?)

I'm no real help, but I can tell you there are 96 Metros with the 4 cyl and manual tranny. I'm driving one. It is the sedan, not the coupe.

You will need pressure plate, clutch, bearing etc for manual. You can go to autoparts and ask for clutch, pressure palte for 3 cyl and 4 cyl. engine. If the part nymber are this same, you can used. But the best way is to compare the parts.
I'm not sure it is worth to swap the engine and parts. Many differences in work. Somebody on this site made comments that computer CCM is this same. I do nopt belive, but?
#947 of 1864 1998 Chevy Metro Timing Belt
Aug 24, 2006 (6:59 pm)
I own a 98 Chevy Metro, 3 cyl, 1 liter, 5 speed that I bought about 18 months ago. The car only had 28,000 miles on it (owned by a retiree in Florida). After purchasing the car, I had all the fluids, belts, and tires replaced, with the exception of the timing belt. I just went over 42,000 miles on the car. The car is now 8 years old. I would like a recommendation when I should consider replacing the timing belt. Although the care doesn't have the mileage, I'm worried about the age. Thanks for your response.

replace it today, not tomorrow. Price is well spent.
I own a 1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro's and a 1997 Suzuki Swift (a metro) so, I know my Metro's.

The door handle on the driver's side of my '92 Geo broke off. Only has 30,000 mile on it. Want to keep in as good a shape as possible. Someone mentioned www.abebooks.com regarding parts, but what is search for once I get to the site? Any ideas. Also how to I post a message and not necessarily to one person? Its my lst time.

I was noticing on my 99 Metro when in traffic and inching ahead that a brake seemed to be sticking on. I would nudge ahead in line and the car would come to a stop on its own. It was not severe, but enough so that I took notice. I had not checked the rear brakes since I bought the car so I decided to pull the rear drums. I found the park brake pivots sticking on both sides, more so on the left rear. The shoes on the left rear were even worn a little more than the right. I had noticed the park brake lever seemed ok other than it took a hard pull to make it hold. This was obviously because the pivots were seizing and they were not traveling the full amount. So as a helpfull hint, if your park brake does not seem to hold properly or you feel some brake resistance when you are at low speeds, it might be wise to pull your rear brakes & check your park brake pivots!
