Question about Geo Cars & Trucks
Stick shift slips
well step one is to adjust the cable,
set free play , most this old are no good, rusted to H3LL
and stick. and makes clutch slip
so buy onE , put it in and set free play to spec.
this first, unless a 6 hour tranny pull is fun for you.
a metro is a Swift, ROTW.
all old cables , also grow internal hidden groves
that makes the cable stick, so get it the heck out of there, an save a bundle.
there are 3 fail modes.
grove deal. why try to guess, just kick it to the curb at the hint of clutch problems and guess what
it can wreck a good clutch too... so..... there you go.
FROM THE FSM.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.Remove the clutch cable joint nut and disconnect the cable from the release arm.
Remove the clutch cable bracket mounting nuts and remove the bracket from the cable.
Remove the cable retaining bolts at the clutch pedal.
Remove the cable from the vehicle. To install:
Before installation, apply grease to the hook and pin end of the cable.
Connect the cable to the clutch pedal and install the retaining bolts.
Install the clutch cable bracket on the cable.
Position the bracket on the transaxle and install the mounting bolts.
Connect the cable to the release lever and install the joint nut on the cable.
Adjust the pedal free-play as previously outlined and connect the negative battery cable.
Free-play, it should be 0.08-0.16 in. on Sprint and 0.06-0.08 in. on Metro.
IN GREN'GO THAT BE 1/10 INCH OR 1/8" WORKS
1/6" IS MAX (dont you just love(not) fractions?
IF YOU LOVE METRIC, LIKE ME, 4MM MaX
2MM BEST play best.
its seems hard but really is just childs play level
if you can do bicycle hand brake, then this is simple, if not, OMG, get help.

Yes, the speed control resistor is a possible culprit. There are other possibilities though. The motor itself might be wearing out. Bearings could be going bad and binding, or the motor itself could be. Usually when a speed control resistor goes, the particular speed setting that portion controls goes out completely, not just slows down. Most automotive blower motors have an independent resistor coil for each speed that you can select. If one of them goes, you lose that speed and keep the others. If you replace the resistor and continue to have a problem, you might want to remove the motor assembly completely and have it bench tested.

SOURCE: geo metro transmission slips and
Auto Trans I had to replace solenoid in transmission there are two of them when you drop the pan. After testing with a 12 volt battery one was bad replaced and transmission works fine. Mine was a 1996, cost about $90 for solenoid.
