radiskull, I might be able to help you with your trans problem, Do not pay $500.00 yet, I might know what is wrong. it might only cost you a $1.50 plus a little inconvenience just finding the component to repair the TCU. What is the year, make and model?

will an engine and transmission from a 1993 geo storm go into a 1997 geo metro?

According to my research, a 1993 Isuzu Stylus will accept a 1993 Geo Storm engine and nothing else. Is the engine in the Storm a SOHC or DOHC?

Think I have a similiar problem. I had to tow my (auto)Metro, and now it shifts up and down intermittently. I have a '94 Metro, and have no idea what or where the TCM is so I can look for burnt caps. Thx.

FIRST DISCONNECT THE BATTERY! Not sure about a '94 but, look under the dash to the right of the steering column, it should look about the size of a pack of cigarettes. Two 10 MM size bolts holding it in place, remove it, unplug it, carefully pry it open and look for any burned capacitors or also look for a little bit of fluid about the amount of a tear drop coming out of a capacitor. If so replace that capacitor, it be okay to replace every capacitor, I think there is only three, take it to a Radio Shack to get the correct ones.

Keep this in mind too dgregor, the caps might not look burned the way you might think, the TCM is held in place on its side next to the steering column, so when you remove it and break it open lay the circuit board down flat and see if any fluid comes out of a capacitor, it will not be very much, but also, these capacitors only cost about $1.00 each just go ahead and replace all of them. Remember to disconnect the battery first before fooling with the TCM.

BTW my GEO still shifts like a new one. Hope I didn't jinx myself. Ha

Thanks. Found it, the caps look like new. Read about adjusting the cable, it definitely affected it, but still not right(but better). Have tried 3 times to pass emissions, and no dice. The idle is too high, won't adjust any lower, and timing is set right. Garage says it has to come down, but I turned in the screw all the way, and it only came down about 100 rpms...
#69 of 69 00 Chevy Metro 1.0 Standard Trans
May 03, 2013 (11:07 pm)
Would somebody be so kind to tell me how do I know which kind of standard transmission I likely have in my 00 chevy Metro? Is a 5 speed, but out of that I don't know more. I'm having problems with 2nd shift; it slips out if I'm not holding the stick. Which brings another question: Can I fix only 2nd shift or do I need to overhaul all the transmission? Any help would be very appreciated. Thank you for your time!
