Question about 1993 Geo Metro
If it has a stop screw, look on the throttle body assembly where the throttle control cable hooks on- the gas pedal cable running from the lower firewall to the engine. You can rotate the throttle control by hand, but where it is in the at rest position- as at idle-there would be a stop screw on the throttle body, which can keep the throttle control from closing further.

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 1991 geo metro rough idle
i have no idea about an idle up solenoid relay but i had the same problem.. there is a hex screw on the motor that takes a very small allen wrench head where you can adjust the idle from there. its near the throttle body

check to see if the heater hoses are getting hot if one is hot and the other isn't the the heater core is stopped up if they are both hot you probably got a bad switch or something is up with the blend door check for vaccum leaks as well because i think the blend door opens and closes with vaccum
