Pls allow me to correct the use of the term "thermostat". The thermostat is a temperature sensitive mechanical switch/valve that prevents water flow below a prescribed temperature. It is normally located inside a catch basin like receptacle where the upper radiator hose enters going into the engine. Soon as the engine reaches heats up and over operating temperature, this valve opens allowing the water inside the engine to flow towards the radiator to be cooled. In tropical regions and to prevent overheating, some mechanics have been known to remove this mechanical thermostat to allow constant coolant flow and therefore not restrict the cooling system in anyway.
Your concern is that the fan is not turning; the radiator fan is controlled/switched by a thermal switch. This switch electrically provides the negative flow of the power from the fan. Often, the switch would be located somewhere plugged/screwed into the radiator. The idea is that the switch will monitor the coolant temperature inside the radiator and upon reaching a prescribed temp switches on the fan. Some mechanics have been known to:
1. wire a manual override wherein the driver could switch on the fan even if the coolant has not reached the prescribed temperature;
2. there are some who have modified the switch system by installing a similar thermal fan switch but with a lower temperature threshold;
3. still others have simply bypassed the switch and wired the fan in such a way as that the fan turns soon as the key is turned in the ignition.
Additional ideas (some have reported positive results with) that could be tried to help minimize if not prevent overheating:
a. removing the pain of the entire radiator;
b. switched to Synthetic Oil for the engine;
c. adding " Water Wetter" or a "A Heat fighter kit" or liquid additive that help radiator work better;
d. replace the stock fan with higher RPM, more blades, bigger after market model.

Get to know the sister cars. The Suzuki Swift is almost completely identical to the Geo Metro and the Pontiac Firefly: the only differences were that the Metro and the Firefly were available in sedan form and the Swift wasn't. Also, no changes were made to any of these cars between 1995 and 1997. If you look for parts for any of these cars they will work.
1995, 1996, 1997 Suzuki Swift
1995, 1996, 1997 Geo Metro 2/3dr
1995, 1996, 1997 Pontiac Firefly 2/3dr
In addition the only things that changed after 1997 were the bumpers and front turn signals (and that the Metro became a Chevy) so taillights for later Swifts/Metros/Fireflies should work as well.

The crankshaft pulley has a hole in it, just above the key. It should be straight up and lined up with the mark on the engine.
The cam pulley also has a hole, and it should be lined up with the little v in your camshaft cover. Put the belt on, line it up, and turn the engine over with a wrench or socket, 2 complete revolutions. Everything should be exactly the same place as when you lined it up. If not, you are out one cog, and will have to do it again.
Make sure the cam is on compression stroke when you line it up. Both valves on #1 cylinder should be fully up... in the closed position.

unfortunately no .... but I think you can add a Sporty Pad ,,, Which is available in most Moto shops ... If your Problem just is to increase height ...
Please Rate My answer well and Support me !!!
