I have a 2003 chevy tracker with a v-6 that had the same problem, started out stalling and restarting right away then progressed to stalling and not starting for 30 minutes or better. No engine light and mechanics couldnt find the problem, did some research and found out that the camshaft position sensor would missread time and cause the engine to stall, I replaced it and no problem since. Hope this helps!

1996 Tracker will only start when the park or headlights are on. Once started, stalls if I turn the lights off.
#87 of 118 stall problem after vehicle gets hot
Feb 11, 2010 (12:40 pm)
I have a 1996 Tracker 127,000 miles on it, 4cy 1.6 engine.
The vehicle starts up everytime on first start up no matter how hot or cold it never fails me. however, after driving it for awhile and engine is hot, it will want to stall or does stall out ,but starts right back up again, sometimes you will have to flutter gas petal to keep running, but once running it runs great no stutter or sputtering, just wants to stall or does,, any help would be greatly appriciated!! Thanks!

This is the answer to car stalling after running for a while...My daughter broke down at the Mall, Bank and even on I-95 on her way home from Va. to NJ. Get this replaced and you will be fine...no problems in 2 years and I found the answer here where no dealer could help

hello to any and all mechanical experts!
i absolutely am in desperate need to fix my ****** tracker as it brings me to and from work (i travel across ontario, so you see how important my pos is)
i have read millions of threads on here about cam sensors overheating and have the same problem. i have already replaced this sensor, as well as fixed the fuel filter, changed the spark plugs and have spoken to a mechanic at a shop. there have been no solutions so far. right now, my boyfriend has my windshield washer resevoir hose ziptied to the top of my camshaft sensor so when it starts to act up in traffic (or anywhere for that matter) i can quickly stop it from dying on me. i know this is not the "mechanically proper way" of fixing this issue, and i cant keep leaving pee stains everywhere i go. PLEASE HELP. someone, anyone, give me some ideas. WHY IS MY CAMSHAFT SENSOR OVERHEATING?! ??!?!?!?!?!
i am ready to pull my hair out, and my boyfriend is losing hair as i type. I HATE THIS PROBLEM AND IT NEEDS TO STOP FOR GOOD. any suggestions????

I replaced my sensor, thats all. But if you do have a problem with your timing you might need to get it fixed. I didnt have to do anything put put in the new sensor, but the first one was defective so I had to do it twice. Over a year ago and so far so good.

#93 of 118 2002 tracker runs rough and stalls out
May 03, 2010 (2:45 pm)
If I turn on A/C or step on brake and slow down, it will stall if I dont step on the gas. Was running fine, turned car off, Tried to start about 15 min. later, battery weak. Got a jump. Bought new battery. After I put in new battery, the rough idle and stalling started. Cleaned terminal ends thoroughly. Power good, lights, dash, horn ect.

to check if its your cam sensor pour water on the sensor while its hot the immediately try to start your car. If it starts prob the sensor. behind the valve cover and cost me $80 bucks, but first replacement was bad and had to do again.
