thanks for the info on this,it does have a after marker filter it looks like a k&n filter but the filter has to have air leaks becouse it is a 2 peice filter, it has the ruber part that mounts on the efi and it fits on that but you can spin the filter on the fitting and it is sort of a loos fit and it has a pvc hose going into the end of it, but i did get it runing a lot better since i posted the question on here, i took it to a machanic and he took the distri out and turned the inside a few teeth and put it back in and now i have been runing it and from time to time i turn it a little more advanced and its been better every time, but still needs something.

What you wrote about turning the distributor a few teeth rang an alarm bell in my head; because the distributor on a Geo Metro does not have teeth; it only has a single blade on it. Furthermore Geo Metros have not been manufactured since 2001; so it is unlikely that there would be a source for new parts to build these machines. And as I wrote in an earlier post; the Geo Metro engine is not 800cc; it is 996cc. Because of these inconsistencies, I finally went to the distributor's website and looked at the photos of this model. And I can see that the motor is definitely not a Geo Metro motor. I don't know what it is; but whoever told you it was a Geo Metro motor was either lying or was ignorant. So we won't be able to be of any help here.
