Re: Highest Mileage on a Geo Metro? I mean Odometer Mileage not MPG

My 93 has just hit 247,000 and runs great. The engine has not been touched and it even has the original clutch that works fine. Car starts and runs great and uses about a quart of oil between changes.

The only problem I have with the car is the windows. I wish there was a way to make them go up smooth without so much force.
Put "Armorall" on the rubber window doodahs, it has silicone in it.

Re: Highest Mileage on a Geo Metro? I mean Odometer Mileage not MPG

I probably don't qualify to be a member of this site now, that I sold my Metro. I rebuilt the engine at 207,000 only because the rear main seal and front tranny seal were leaking to beat hell. After the rebuild, it ran just as good as it did before. It had over 240,000 on it, when I sold it. My rebuild worked out pretty darned good.

Thumbs up Re: Highest Mileage on a Geo Metro? I mean Odometer Mileage not MPG

I just turned 1/4 million miles on my 2000 4cyl automatic. I need new valve seals but everything else with the engine and tranny is fine. Body is starting to rust. So far only repair besides the usual is water pump and timing belt. Home brew exhaust.

215,000 Change all oil seals, O2 sensor, PCV, new straight exhaust, cleaned carbon from EGR to exhaust manifold and rebuilt tranny. Burns no oil, purchased from a 1 owner who changed oil every 3K miles. 49 mpg, 95 2dr, manual tranny, runs great

Re: Highest Mileage on a Geo Metro? I mean Odometer Mileage not MPG

I have a 94 xFi with 325,000, nothing internal ever done to the motor. I have however replaced the water pump, 5 timing belts, 3 sets of spark plugs, 2 sets of wires, every seal (except the oil pan) and swapped in a junkyard tranny. (lost 5th in the original). She is still running strong!

3 sets of spark plugs?

Should be 10 sets according to the maintenance schedule.

Re: Highest Mileage on a Geo Metro? I mean Odometer Mileage not MPG

just rolled over 340,000 yesterday.

moved the timing ahead a bit and now getting about 44mpg. short trips sure cut down the efficiencies.
