Jun 10, 2005 (9:56 pm)
I'm from Canada - just signed up to get some info on 1991 trackers. I own at 1998 Chevy Blazer which is great but a gas pig, so I'm looking for something that is a little bit more fuel efficient for getting around town, 2 and from daycare, work etc.
Trying to get some info on their reliability or any other comments offered.
The one that I'm looking at has pretty high k's ~ 250 ~ but all highway. It's in excellent condition, and so I just wanted to know what everyone thinks about the high klm's and if its worth buying. Asking $2500cdn.

My front windows drop forward when opening them, then when I engage the power button to close them the motor either stops or drags. It seems the windows tip forward and have to be pushed back to the proper position to close again. Any ideas. The dealer told me it would probably take at least one hour of shop time to take off both front panels am thinking this could be expensive.

I have not installed one on my 2004 but, on my 97 Astro I added a universal cooler in front of the radiator it works fine and the van still stays between 160-190 deg while pulling 4000# trailer at 75mph on an 85 degree day. You shouldn't have any problems. Just get the smallest one that is available for the 1000-3000# towing range that way you won't block too much of the radiator.

Depending on the top (hard top or convertable) and is it auto of 5 speed and does it have a/c that works? The value for the 1991 with that may miles here in MI would be around $1000-$1250 USD. I am not sure what the exchange rate is but if it is an auto and with hardtop and a/c it may be worth $1500USD.

I am having the exact same problem with a 99 tracker. The first thing I replaced was the fuel pump relay, but it did not fix the problem. Right now I suspect the fuel pump or fuel injection. Maybe someone will reply to this that has found a solution.

Out of the three mechanics I've taken my Tracker to, one changed the fuel pump and I am getting better gas mileage. But it's now dying if idling too long. A friend had problems with a coil that would expand in hot weather, changed it and all was fine. Someone else suggested the oyxgen sensor.
I don't know why my tracker won't act up at all for the mechanics. Just me. I'm going to take it to my fourth mechanic next week and if they can't figure it out...I'll have to trade it in...be upside down on payments, but as a newspaper photographer, I have to depend on being able to get places in the hot south.
Rem05, hopefully we'll be able to get this problem solved.

I agree with you... the front ones were a breeze...
Can you give me hint on how to remove the rear drums in order to inspect the rear brakes?
I know they possibly don't need changing, but I want to inspect them anyway and adjust them.
I may be doing something wrong because I am unable to remove the drums...

to be honest. im not sure what i did to get them off. i remember I broke a craftsman screw driver and i remember it was a total pain in the rear!! but with 70k miles io had about 45% life left on the rear pads. I do remember beating the rear drum with a hammer and trying to pry it. it worked. but i thought there had to be a easier way.

WHEN WAS YOUR FUEL FILTER WAS REPLACED, A DIRTY FUEL FILTER CAN RESTRICT THE FLOW. THIS DECREASES THE FUEL THAT MIXES WITH AIR WHICH OVERLY THINS THE FUEL. THE RESULTS IN HOT WEATHER, EVAPORATION. CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER.
