#50 of 82 Torque Converter Locked?
Dec 08, 2008 (8:38 am)
I have a 2000 Chevy Tracker 4x4 with 2.0l, automatic & 95,000 miles on it. We pulled into the driveway and parked it until the next morning. When we went to use it the next day, the engine would'nt even crank over. Replaced the battery, because it was due. The engine still would not turn over. Now i'm thinking starter, but before i would replace it, i took a breaker bar to the crank pully just to make sure the engine will turn over by hand. IT WONT! I pulled the starter. Tried to turn over with breaker bar again. IT WONT! My next thought was to disconnect the flywheel from the torque converter. I CAN'T!....because crankshaft/flywheel cannot be turned over since the engine or trans is locked. I have the Tracker jacked up just to make sure the transfer case is not locked up in neutral...its fine. Has anybody ever experienced a torque converter locking up in this vehicle?
#51 of 82 Stuck in gear
Nov 16, 2009 (9:13 am)
Can anyone help me on this? I have a 2002 Tracker 2.0 L 4x4 4 door, I pulled into my yard and the gear shifter felt like it wasn't attached to anything it just moved up and down freely. needless to say it was stuck in drive, so now I can't even start it. Has anyone else had this problem? It worked find up to yesterday. Is it attached to some type on shifting cable or something.
I'd appreciate any help I can get.
#52 of 82 Transmission Interchange Info 1999 Tracker
Dec 08, 2009 (6:08 pm)
I have a 1999 Tracker, 2.0, 5 speed manual, 4x4 and want to replace the transmission with a lower mile, later model. I know they discontinued making my two door rag top in 2003 but, I believe they continued to use the same motor and tranny for more years. I want to find out what other years will bolt up to my 1999 motor and to the transfer case? I'm trying to get away from the 1999 tranny curse. Does anyone know where I can go to find this info? Also, are there any other manufactures models that work like, Suzuki, etc.?

. I have a 200 Chevy /Suzuki Tracker, 2.0, 4 cyl. Auto, 4 wheel drive. The transmission sometimes pops out of OD./Drive or appears to.. The tach goes way up like stepping in on a clutch...You back off and feather the gas pedal and all is good .. Hasn't done it lately but now the weather is in the 30s.. seemed to do it below 25 +or.-Seemed to have started the problem after the 4 studded snows were put on,,,. Trans fluid OK. a little dirty but not burnt.
48000 miles on the Tracker.. Bought used w/420000...
Low idle s around 6/700 rpm,IMO too low ,but that is normal from what Ive heard and can not be adjusted because of eletronic ignition...
Check engine light is on and will be going to shop soon..Road around about a hr today no issues. BUT Cars do not fix themselfs lol
#56 of 82 '94 Tracker Lsi 4x4 tranny problems
Feb 22, 2010 (12:37 pm)
I would like to start by saying thank you for the wealth of information provided on this forum, I can tell you know what you're talking about. A lot of this is far too technical for me, so I 'm hoping you could help clarify some things and pump a little life into this thread.
RE: 1994 Geo Tracker LSI (not sure of engine type) automatic transmission, 91K mi, AUTO HUB
My problem is similar to many others out there: My tracker has problems shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear in cold weather. Once it warms up it's fine, but before then it feels like its popping out of gear and into neutral when shifting into 3rd. At that point I take my foot off the gas and let it back down to about 3k rpms where it will go into gear. If it doesn't go into 3rd I put it into "2" and let it warm up a little longer. Once it is ready and does go into 3rd I have no problems with it until the next time I run it cold.
Based on what I've read on this board I suspect it has low pump pressure, and a lot of sludge/grime caught up in the governor. The seals are obviously old and probably also have something to do with it. Also the MOD valve and vacuum modulator might need to be changed.
Before I take it in for the full inspection/tuneup/overhaul I want to make sure I tell them what to look for.
On another forum a guy said he poured in 1 ounce of clean brake fluid into the transmission and that after a day the problem was more or less fixed as that caused the seals in the tranny to become more pliable.
From what I can tell the car has been regularly maintained and serviced, with a tranny flush being performed 2 months ago (according to the guy who sold it to me).
Any help/suggestions you may have would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I have a 03 tracker with auto transmission and tonight as i was pulling out of my driveway, the transmission wouldn't shift till high 4000 rpm's. Has done it every time since when going from first to second, and even tried turning off the car for several hours, and its still happening. Any ideas? Transmission fluid change/top off maybe?
#59 of 82 1998 Chevy Tracker Tranny Problem
Sep 14, 2010 (6:09 pm)
Hi: Doug here from Maine. I've recently purchased an abandoned parking garaged not used in three years 1998 Chevy Tracker with a 1.6 automatic tranny. After a minor tune up it seemed fine on the road until just recently. Now after it warms up it wont shift into second gear. I had my local garage flush the tranny new gasket and filter and fluid. This did'nt help at all the next day I traveled a hundred miles then I had to pull over and have my auto club tow me home. The local garage says they can't help. Could this be a computor issue? No slivers of metal on the dipstick and no odd tranny noises. The fluid looks fine. I'm thinking of taking to the local Chevy dealership to do a code scan. What do you think. Many Thanks Doug
