Could be Transmission related. Have you checked the Fluid level?
Also have you changed anything recently like new tires? Its not uncommon for some tires like (Hankook for example) to make road noise?

How can you tell if the computer is bad on a 1998 geo metro?


If a fuel injector is not firing to one of the cylinders on the multi port fuel injection type engine, then it's a safe bet that the computer is at fault. But, the engine will run really badly if that's the case.

What road blocks will I have putting a 1993 1.0 L geo metro engine and ecm into a 1997 geo metro?


I don't know if it will physically bolt in or much about either motor really. However, most states have an emissions inspection that requires hooking a computer up to the OBDII connector. Installing an OBDI engine and ecm into an OBDII car won't allow you to pass inspection and is technically illegal. The other way around, would be fine as far as inspection anyway.

Have you checked (or replaced) the O2 sensor. This can cause the engine to run bad at cold temps if the sensor is bad

Engine misses on take off from stop.


check your fuel pressure, slightly low fuel pressure can cause this and it is possible that your other coil is breaking down under heat. also it could be as simple as your plug wires breaking down under heat
