Question about 1993 Geo Tracker

1 Answer

93 geo tracker gets fuel, has spark, cranks but won't start

Put car back together after it sat for 3 years in a field.... gets spark, fuel in the carb, pressure a little low in #1 and 2 cylinders (70), distributor set at #1 straight on. Getting frustrated-no one can tell me what the problem might be. Have checked fuses; rewired O2 sensor...any suggestions?

    thanks----I suspect rings-just put a new head gasket on when it was reassembled. Will check-thanks for your assistance and input.

Since it gets spark and fuel I suspect the low compression to be a large factor. What is the compression in the other cylinders?

    That is quite a difference. Could be: head gasket, rings or valves leaking. I would think head gasket first as low cylinders are adjacent.

    Makes sense, good job!

I have a 93 Geo Tracker with 200000 miles on it. it stalled out in my driveway. we cahnged the fuel pump and the fuel filter. its getting gas but has no spark. Where do we start


4 possibilities 1 crank sensor, 2 ignition control module, 3 ECM, coil/ coilpack. Check codes first this will point you towards the right direction.
If there are no codes then go to the coil/ coilpack

We can't get our 1991 GEO Tracker to start


I had this problem as well. The tracker had sat for 8 years and would only run off of starter fluid. I replaced the filter and fuel pump then I had no fire. Located under driver side dash in the fuse panel theres a fuse for coil. I don't remember which one, but, I am pretty sure it is a 10 amp fuse. Or just do like I did and replace any bad fuses. If that doesn't work it will be a relay located above that same fuse box.

I have 1995 geo tracker. cranks over but doesnt start. would it be coil or fuel problem?


You need to conduct tests to be sure where the trouble is.
1. Spark test: remove the number one spark-plug, and hold it to the engine block. then ask a friend to crank up the engine..
2. If the system is good, you should see steady blue sparks. If you don't, then you would have to work on your ignition system.
3. Fuel test: get a can of 'starting fluid' or the common 'choke and throttle-body cleaner'.
4. Unbolt the clamp holding the air-intake hose to the throttle-body. Pull back the hose to expose the inside of the throttle-body.
5. Spray a good quantity of the cleaner into the body.
6. Re-attach the air-intake hose, and try to crank up the engine again.
7. It will show some hesitation, but keep cranking until it fires up, and able to idle.
8. If the throttle-body and the manifold are dirty, the choke cleaner should help.
9. Please get back to me if necessary.
