  1. Hoping I'm right about this one, but would like to hear what you guys think. I had a slight sputtering issue at high rpm. A can of injector cleaner and it would run great for a couple dozen miles, then pick up again. I decided to fill it up with high octane and a half can of sea foam for good measure. Now, it's much worse. Almost like it's struggling to pull fuel. It sputters and shudders pretty bad. I replaced the fuel filter and pcv, cleaned egr valve to no avail. My main issue is I can't find the adapter to hook up a fuel pressure tester to the rail. I've looked and it seems you have to special order it. Question for you guys- could the catalytic converter be causing this and throwing an egr code? I'm guessing it would be injectors, plugs, or fuel pump but hadn't considered the cat until a buddy told me about a similar experience he had that was caused by a clogged cat. Any similar experiences and outcomes would be greatly appreciated too
  2. I have a 2003 tracker and the I need a few parts for it, i found a parts truck but its a 2001 grand vitara. I know there are many things the same between the two but the body is a bit different in some areas. Will the back tailgate /door work from the vitara for my tracker ? and also the carrier housing in the front diff (i dont need the gears inside only housing) Iknow the gears wouldnt work because the vitara is auto and v6 and my tracker is manual and 4 cyl. thanks so much !! CHEVY TRACKER 2003 4X4 4 CYL 4 DOOR STANDARD
  3. I have just purchased a 91 geo tracker 4x4. I'm wanting to lift it some and put a larger tire on it. just looking for suggestions on what I need. Thanks in advance
  4. i have a 1998 geo tracker that needs an automatic trans shift cable. anyone know where to get one?
  5. I have a 1999 Geo Tracker. I live in Costa Rica Central America and the challenge is to find parts for this, specifically a Rear Differential (used). I am told that what I need to know in order to get the right part - IF I can find one - is the gear ratio or the number of teeth in the gears (I'm not a mechanic and know very little about this, so assume I'm a dummy). But I can't find this info anywhere. Can anyone help me? Also when checking the VIN # on various sites on the net, one site says my car has a 2 liter engine and the other says it's 1.6. How can I tell which it is? Apparently there are many types of Trackers here in Costa Rica and it's very hard finding parts for THIS one which was built at CAMI in Ontario Canada and it may have been built for the NY Market. I have the codes that are in the glove compartment and it says the following based on the code decoder I found at this site: VIN# 2CNBJ1865X6905626 MODEL DJR37 CANADA (CAMI)/ GM December 1998 GVWR GAWR FRT GAWR RR 1YL USA (?) What does this mean? Code: B1A Port of Entry CAMI (Canadian Automotive Manufacturing Inc) - owned by General Motors (GM) "From 1991 on the Geo Tracker sold in Canada was identical to its US counterpart." - Wikipedia - ANYONE KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE ?? If so then any American made 1999 rear differential will work in my Canadaian made Chevrolet Tracker?? L01 GAS, 16 Valve 4 CYL 1.6 LT, MFI, OHC MM5 MANUAL 5 SPD -------------------- So, does anyone know how I find find the gear ratio or pinpoint the right used differential without taking it apart and carrying it in hand to a parts place to compare? NG1 NEW YORK?? (This entry had question marks after it. Has it been confirmed that this does mean it was made for the NY market?) PG2 Wheel - 15 x 5.5 STEEL QCE TIRE P205/75R15/N BL R/PE ST TL ALS
  6. Hi, just agreed to purchase of a 1997 Sidekick Sport with 30K miles, auto, loaded and in very good original condition. Stereotypical 'older lady grocery getter' (original owner) although it has been used offroad a fair bit. What do you recommend to check or update to keep it reliable? Took it off-road on some challenging terrain and I was totally impressed with it's crawling ability with summer tires. Looking for reliability and near stock configuration, off-road tires, maybe a 2" lift. Mainly SoCal desert terain. Thx.
  7. Alright I have a 2000 Chevy Tracker with the 2.0L with a 5 speed manual and 4x4. The motor is shot and I have a 2.5L out of a 1987 Jeep that I am thinking about putting in. Will the 2.5 jeep motor bolt up to the tracker transmission? Will I need a adapter? Would it be easier to swap the whole drivetrain (motor, transmission, transfer case)? Please help me out here.
  8. My ECM's 5V reference falls to 1.5V with the fuel level sender plugged in. (Just replaced - old one was open.) I get an Ohms reading of 70 Ohms at the ECM connector (disconnected from ECM) with all circuits connected. That means I'm only drawing about 75 mA from the reference but it falls to 1.5 VDC. I haven't taken an Ohms reading with the fuel level sender disconnected since the reference comes back to 5VDC with it disconnected. (70 Ohms seems reasonable with less than half a tank of gas- the sender is 40 Ohms at empty.) WHAT IS THE CURRENT RATING FOR THE 5 VOLT REFERENCE CIRCUIT?? If no one knows can someone with a 96-98 Tracker, disconnect the center connector (there are three) from the ECM and take an Ohms reading from your reference circuit (gray/red wire) to ground (I used the steel dash plate - under the steering wheel, directly behind the plastic panel). Please include the fuel gage reading at the time for your vehicle (it makes a big difference, 270 vrs. 40 ohms). THANX . . . Hoping it's NOT the ECM . . . but it looks bad.
  9. Located a '96 four door tracker with the auto trans, motor is shot...what years and engines will be a direct bolt in?? looking for stock suzuki/tracker motors...just want to remove the bad 1.6 and drop in a good 1.6...thanks pj
  10. The Sidekick and Geo Tracker were Suzuki's answer to the Samurai's safety concerns: a wider-track, lower center of gravity, with more steel and a larger engine—just what G.M. needed to satisfy a hungry sub-compact 4WD market, albeit, the origins of the Geo Tracker. In the mid-'nineties, I did a considerable amount of guiding and consulting work for Chevrolet and GMC truck, including media runs and instructing at Tread Lightly 4WD Driving Clinics sponsored by Chevrolet. As a result, I was in line for a very unusual request: Two Geo Tracker engineers (actually procurers) asked whether I thought it feasible to take a Tracker over the notorious Rubicon Trail. Confident that they meant a properly outfitted and modified Tracker 2-door 4x4 model, I answered, "Yes!" The consulting gig that resulted was the first-ever traversing of the Rubicon Trail with a Geo Tracker—actually a pair of Trackers! On a shoestring budget, I had Steve Kramer, co-owner of Calmini Products, lightly modify one of the Trackers, providing our "recovery" and winching source. Mods were limited to a pilot 2-inch lift kit, 29" tires on stock rims, a Lock-Right rear differential and a 5000-lb. capacity Warn winch fitted to a custom tubular front bumper. An aluminum belly pan skid plate was attached to each vehicle's vulnerable undercarriage...I raised the bar by toting a USA VenturCraft Sportsman trailer behind the support/lead rig. The two Trackers turned a typical 12-hour Jeep 4x4 trip into a 46-hour marathon, complete with high-lift jacking and repeated winching of the stone stock (as per a G.M. stipulation) second Geo Tracker. I served as camp cook for myself and three other men: Steve Kramer, the photographer sent by Chevolet and one of the two Geo engineers. I made and broke down camp on the nights we slept, and I drove both vehicles through the roughest stretches, all the while maintaining team moral over endless days and nights on the Rubicon. Much to his credit and our friendship, Steve Kramer came along and worked shoulder-to-shoulder with me on episodes like the blowing apart of a front half-shaft in the dark of night on the trail...We picked CV balls front the dirt and salvaged enough clean CV-grease to repack, reassemble and re-boot the hyper-extended shaft. Cautious articulation kept that joint together for the balance of the trip out. The venture and publicity stunt generated a national ad campaign for Chevrolet's Geo Tracker. I scooped the event for Geo News and Chevy Truck magazine. Chevrolet was pleased and displayed the lead/support vehicle at the SEMA Show that year. Ask me if I know much about the Geo Tracker and Sidekick, and I'll share that I likely know as much as any four-wheeler on Earth! I can tell you how many hours it takes to deplete a tank of gas, where best to place a Hi-Lift jack or Warn winch lead, how to angle up V-8-size boulders in a sub-compact 4x4—and why I value my XR350R Honda dirt bike so much...These days, unless you have a well-equipped, 33" to 37" diameter tire equipped 4x4, consider the Rubicon Trail off-limits unless you have a great deal of time and resources on your hands...A motorcycle like my Honda can cover the trail in four hours. This forum is for Sidekick and Tracker enthusiasts, those who value the many merits of these tough sub-compact 4x4s. Take my word, they'll readily do what the designers intended—and more if you have the right equipment and a sense of adventure!—Moses Ludel.
