#1030 of 1838 Engine Noise Please Help!!!
Apr 02, 2005 (4:23 pm)
I have a 2001 Chevy Tracker. I have a pulley on my engine that is wabbling quite a bit when the Tracker is at idle. It wont do it until the car is warmed up (bout 10 minutes) and when the throttle cable is pushed for more power the wabble goes away. It is coming from the pully just below the water pump (is very clear that this is the wabbling pulley). Unfortunately I am waiting on my Haynes manual to arrive in the mail. Does anyone know what this pully goes to? If so, is there any way to tighten it... or am I going to have to get a new part altogether? Does anyone know where I can get some good second hand parts?
I also have the stock wheels on the car which are starting to show their age (4 years). Personally I think that they are just poor quality wheels. The laquer is starting to peel from the alloy and it is making a real mess of the wheels. Does anyone know where I can get new alloys.. factory or different model would be nice. Thanks -Brandon

On my '01 2.0L the pulley under the water pump is the air conditioner compressor. If this is indeed what is wabbling I think you have no choice but to have someone knowledgeable with air conditioner components look at it. The pulley is integral with the compressor. It may be a bearing but it may be easier to replace it as a unit. Unfortunately I think this is an expensive part. Be sure your belt is at the correct tension. Good luck!

The problem went away for a day now its back. when stopped at a light the engine started reving up like I was stepping on the gas but was not and car was in neutral. Now it's back to the same. Every time I step on the clutch and put it in neutral it dies.
When slowing down in gear it's fine and runs fine when speeding up and shifting thru to fifth. Could it be, fuel filter, tps sensor, ? Have appointment at dealer on tuesday and not looking forward to it. Thanks...

Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling that it was the A/C compressor... but wasn't 100% sure. I looked the part up and it is looking about $560.00. Do you have any idea where I could get second hand parts for the tracker? Thanks again for the reply. -Brandon

question you said when you pull in the clutch and put it in N it stalls. does it stall b4 you get to N? cause if so. that makes me wonder if the clutch is Not fully disengaging. and when you try to stop and idle it stalls. "if this is the case" . You have a 99 right? i do remember reading about 1999 manual tranny trackers having problems. but i think it had something to do with a gear or beaing. you might wanna do a keyword search on here and look up past posts on your year of tracker.. i know there was something about the stickshift tracker that i read about
#1035 of 1838 Wabbling A/C Compressor
Apr 03, 2005 (7:09 am)
I have looked into my compressor problem a bit on the net and found a few different things. I found that there was a recall on A/C compressors for the Chevy Tracker. Anyone know how to go about filing a report and maybe getting a new compressor. Info about recalls below:
15) TSB: 01-01-38-018
Issue Date: October 2003
TSB Title: A/C- Unnecessary Compressor Replacement
22) TSB: 01-01-39-003A
Issue Date: July 2003
TSB Title: A/C- Catastrophic Failure Debris Removal
If anyone knows anything about this it would be much appreciated if you could let me know. Thanks -Brandon

#1039 of 1838 Electric Windows
Apr 14, 2005 (10:41 am)
I recently purchased a 2000 Tracker-4 door.Everything about the vehicle works OK except for the drivers side window.Although mine are electric,I am having the same problem as #1012(silverleaf).When I raise the window,it tilts forward out of the rear track and then binds up.If I pull it back into the track,it works properly again.I have taken it apart and there's nothing obvious that appears to be wrong.
Has anyone other than "silverleaf" had this problem?"Silverleaf",did you find out what was causing your problem?
