I'm from the Netherlands, and I don't know all the differences between different countries, but I would say that since yours is a 92, it has efi already. Throttle body injection to be precise. Like I said, I don't know everything, so I could be wrong. You shoul take a look under the air filter cover, if you see a round, black, plastic cap in the center with wires running to it, it's a TBI.

You have an EFI already. if you wanted to go to carb. that's a whole nother animal. probably weak due to exhaust valve roasted and in need of a piston rering. seems to be common issues with these engines.

Are you sure about that? A tbi looks a bit like a carb.

Its TBI, basically an electronic 1barrel carb.

Snap a picture of it without the air cleaner assembly on it, only reason it wouldnt be is if someone swapped it out and its not stock anymore.

There are not your typical multi-port EFI where there are injectors for each cylinder.

You would want to do a full compression test setup: hot/cold and dry/wet.

Typically, a new $350 head will freshen up most 1.0L engines.

Thanks Geod, well i guess you're right and that is what i have. I wish it was EFI with multi inject ..
in Israel in summer days its to hot and I'm in need of a/c, and i don't know if ill install if the engine will be able to keep working.
In addition I'm in trouble of a bit power, well i cruise of 62MPH +- its sounds like the car is crying and its awful, i would like to increase a bit my cruising speed to 70-75 mph' would like to know what my option are, thank you guys.

Do you have a 5 speed or automatic? A five speed should be able to cruise at 75MPH all day. Same with the auto but it is higher in the RPM. It still should be okay at that speed. Either way, the engine shouldn't be near red line at that speed. These engines always sound like you're abusing them when you aren't. It's something you need to get used to.

When I go to the south of France, a 683 mile or 1100km trip, once a year, I cruise at 80mph/130kph, just under 4000rpm, and only stop for fuel or bathroom. No problem at all. What top down@-40 says is right, you have to get used to the sound. A three cylinder engine sounds very raw, even the modern ones you find in an Aygo or Alto.

A/C will drag the engine down, but these 3cyl engines are unique sounding and sound like they will fall apart but are happy as a lark and fine.

I cannot tell you your for sure fine without listening in person, but just to let you know these are weird sounding engines to begin with.

I have cruised at 80mph on freeways no issues so its a realistic achievable speed.
