#210 of 521 Re: 2004 tracker 2.5L v-6 engine/drivetrain vibration [guldguy]

Here's the explanation from Chevrolet: It's normal for this engine. My explanation: There are 4 chains and 8 sprockets in this motor. I believe 50 mph the engine passes thru a first critical resonance and 60 mph it passes thru a secondary resonance, due to all these sprockets and chains. It seems to be a characteristic of this engine. This may also explain why this motor soesn't get great gas mileage. There is too much mechanical friction in the motor. I'd never buy another Suzuki designed product again. One thing which made it less noisy was to switch over to Mobil-1 synthetic 5w-30. I change the oil and filter (GM filter) every 6000 miles with this synthetic. Chevy recommends not to exceed 7000 miles on synthetic.
#211 of 521 1995 Geo Tracker Fuel System
Dec 30, 2008 (5:17 pm)
Replaced the fuel pump on my 1995 Geo Tracker, 1.6 16 valve engine after the vehicle quit running. Determined that the fuel pump was not working & replaced it. My tracker still won't run. The new pump's working but it doesn't seem to be sending the fuel. Any suggestions? If it's the fuel pump relay, where is it on this machine. Many thanks.

Did you change the fuel filter? It's possible you have a blocked fuel filter. How do you know the fuel pump is working? By sound after installed? If so then I don't think the relay is bad. The other possibility is the fuel pressure regulator.

The fuel pump is humming but there's no fuel making its way up to the fuel regulator. The relay is making a clicking noise and the fuel lines all appear to be good. Any suggestions about what to check out next? I really appreciate the help. I've found two relays under the dash right next to each other. Is there another one for the fuel pump somewhere that I'm missing? When I checked out these two relays, the previous owner had a jumper wire instead of the original relay in the 4 prong plug. What relay goes in here? Do you have a number. Both relays have juice on the top & nothing on the bottom. Talk about a challenge. It only has 114,000 original miles on it & the automatic & 4 wheel drive work fine (when it's running). At this point, if it wasn't in such good shape, I'ld scrap it.
#214 of 521 brakes go to the floor
Jan 17, 2009 (3:26 pm)
I have a 2000 chevy tracker 2.0L 4x4, the brakes are soft and go all the way to the floor when I push on them hard. I have replaced the pads and shoes, bled the brakes, can find no signs of leakage anywhere, not low on brake fluid. Anyone know if the power brake booster could cause this? I would think that if the booster were bad it would just feel like manual brakes but am running out of options! Don't want to start replacing $200 parts just hoping it might fix the problem. Thanks

Here are a couple suggestions.(1) Look close where the master cylinder bolts to the booster. If there is any sign of leakage of brake fluid on the surface of the booster usually at the bottom where the master cylinder bolts to the booster, then your master brake cylinder is going bad. You won't see it in the fluid level change. I had this happen on my 2004 tracker. Soft pedal feel. (2). On these back brakes, I've noticed that if you have to readjust them, there needs to be a slight drag on the drum to shoe to get effective braking action. It's also possible that your self adjuster is rusted shut. Either lubricate or replace. When taking off the back drum, look to see if there is a rust built up on the drum edge . If so then this needs to be ground flush with the braking surface or the whole drum put on a brake lathe and turned down. This will enable proper seeting of shoe to drum. Also look close at your brake cylinders in the back to see if there is any brake fluid on their surface. I had one chevy with a rear leaky cylinder, but the dash brake light never came on. If you can see the brake lines underneath makes sure there are no signs of leakage. If all this checks out then you'll be into a vacuum booster replacement. In all the GMs and Fords (mistake) I've had , I never had a booster go bad. Good luck!

Does anyone know how to bench test the EGR valve from my 2002 V6?
#217 of 521 2000 ECM installation help
Jul 02, 2009 (4:33 pm)
I have a 2000 chevy tracker, 2.0 4 wheel drive. The 4 wheel drive has stopped working and the guy at the chevy garage said that it is the ECM that is causing it. I have found a used ECM, but one mechanic said that used ECM's dont work while another said that it would but it would have to be reprogramed by the Chevy dealership. Can anyone help me.

I have the same issue with my 2001 Chevy Tracker 2.0 liter. Check Engine Soon light on most of the time.
Can some give the actual part name for this "pig tail valve"? Tracking it down with this type of name does not make it easy.
Thanks, Bill Colwell
#219 of 521 Front End noise
Jul 30, 2009 (8:21 am)
I have a 2003 Tracker ZR2 4x4 auto 6 cyl with 47k miles. When I put the vehicle in gear, I hear what seems to come from the transmissions a noise just like a baseball card makes in a bicycle tire. No noticeable difference in driving, just that noise. Anyone know what that may be??
