Engine Performance problem
1995 Geo Metro 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 93,000 miles

I have a question about my Geo Metro 1995 4-cylinder standard. Whenever I start it up, I have to put my foot on the accelerator to keep it idling and if I let my foot off, it dies. It is a continuous pattern. It started with stalling out and hesitating at stop signs and stop lights and continued to get worse. I have replaced these parts so far: Fuel Pump, Fuel Filter, Distributor cap, Spark Plugs, Oil Filter and Oil change, New Battery. I need to know what is going on, I can't figure it out. Please help. Thank you.

Sounds like the idle speed control motor is bad. It is located on the throttle bore. You can try removing it and cleaning it with carb cleaner, but it sounds like yours isnt working at all and may need to be replaced
