Re: 1996 Geo Metro 1.0 only firing on 2 cylinders

chances are you have a burned exhaust valve. Do a dry compression test on all three, and see what the numbers are. Then add a small amount of oil to each cylinder, and do the test again, this will tell you if its rings or valves.

They do have a tendency to burn valves though, and the rings occasionally get weak.

Good luck
