#1791 of 1845 Re: Water leak on 2002 LT Chevy Tracker 2.5 Lt [jorgedh]

Please read my post 1748. To get the black cowl cover off to inspect the air intake area; first pop black covers off wiper arms, remove bolt, wiggle wiper arm and remove. Remove plastic pop in clips that hold the rubber stripping and cowl cover on top of fire-wall. There are also four plastic bayonet clips on the end of the cowl cover that require you to press in the middle part to release the plug then pull the plug up and out. The cowl cover is still being held by four white plastic clips that may come out in one piece or not. Like I said in the post they are cheap to replace from Suzuki. If you look into the air intake area on the drivers side you will see the bundle of wires going though this area; on the passenger side of the air intake is where I found the leak and successfully plugged it with silicone III on a long screwdriver.
#1792 of 1845 Engine Trouble

I just got a 02 Tracker LT with the V6 from my grandmother. Everything is in great shape but it has a very loud ticking noise. Almost like a piston is about to shoot from the hood. Its got 89k for miles and the engine was rebuilt once before.
Is this a common problem for this vehicle? Is it worth it for me to tear it apart and try to fix it or should I start looking for a new engine.

Is the noise rpm related or constant?

Disable the ignition coil to one cylinder at the time and try to isolate the noise.
You may want to a parts house and buy a "mechanics stethoscope" and try it at various positions on the engine while it is running. If you have a store like Harbor Freight near you they are not too expensive (under $5)
#1796 of 1845 tracker cooling system
Mar 19, 2010 (9:25 am)
I have a 2000 chev tracker with an unusual cooling system I think a problem. The top radiator hose and top of the radiator is operating temp, hot to the touch. The engine block by the water pump is hot to the touch. The temp gauge goes to the normal operating range(center of the white bar). Heat comes out of the heater. Yet the lower chamber of the radiator and the lower hose is cold to the touch. I have replaced the radiator cap and thermostate. When the coolant was drained it was really clean like new. When you squeeze the lower radiator hose with the cap off coolant will come up through the filler. Have any one of you with this tracker checked to see if yours is the same way or is the lower hose warm to the touch? The cooling system fluid is at the proper level also.

Sounds like the water pump is not pumping.

About two weeks ago, I bought a car charger for my cell phone. When I plugged it in, my stereo, cigarette lighter, and my side view mirror adjuster stopped working. I assumed this was a blown fuse. I've changed the fuse twice now and they still don't work. I have a 2004 Tracker. Any ideas??

If you can't get one at the Chevy dealer try the Suzuki dealer.
