Tranny clutch problems in Geo Tracker

I changed engines in my 1989 tracker. I put a motor from a 1993 sunrider in. Since doing this the clutch slips in the transmission when you accelerate. We have put on a different cable and set the slack etc. But now we cant shift into gear while the motor is running. Just like the clutch plates aren't releasing. What can the problem be???

Also how do you get the gear shift out of the transmission in order to drop the transmission.

The motor is a 93 and the tranny is a 89. According to GM parts department, all parts are interchangeable from an 89-93....please help!!

I have a 1989 chevy geo tracker and ive had to replace the clutch and ive had nothing but problems with it not going into gear and now im told that it needs a new clutch arm and im told they dont carr


this is one of the most common failures , on track-kicks.
the cause is easy:
not replacing the cable at 100k or lubing it every 30k.
the acid test (created by me) is the 1 inch rule.
if the bell arm moves 1 inch (zero play) and the clutch fails to disengage then the clutch is bad.
if it does not move 1inch the cable system is bad.
easy huh?
see the full sad stories here. and cures. (suzuki stills sells the parts for a little while longer.. they are Chapter 11 here)

I put a rear seal in a 1993 geo tracker,was not leaking,now i have put two seals in ,still leaking


which seal. ? rear of WHAT?
2wd, 4wd?
3sp,4speed or 5sp. tranny.?
my wild guess, is the rear transfer case leaks, and if yes, where.?
it can leak in 3 places. (ive rebuilt them and the boxes)

or the rear engine seal.

so the rear seal can be, in 3 places.
if you work on 4wd, it really can be 5 places.
6 counting rear of front axle.
that is because the exit paths are shared on many.

first tell me what you are driving like this.
97 geo 2dr, 5sp 4wd. like that, then we can answer in fine detail.

Clutch cable geo tracker


don't want to shift? fills a huge basket ,
1: grinds?
2: can't get in to some gears.? or all gears.? (engine running and not)?
3: clutch drags, clutch slips kills all gears, or just 5th.
drag kills them all and reverse 1st , its the canary gear. !! non synchro
4: noise.? or chatter, ****,larchig, or throwout hash ,?

here is the clutch page, link below.

the #1 failure for a gear not Selecting is a $5 fix.
the tip of the shifter shaft, plastic POS is broken, bar none this failure,#1 and sold only at SUZ, get em' while you can they are chapter 11 ANDGM/GEO is brain dead , ask them , and you get blank stares.

this can be proven, by selecting the gears by hand. running.
if failure, cant move those fork rods?
running? only
if you cant, the clutch is dragging. see why?
works stalled means the clutch drags.
can you shift to 1st stalled, start engine drive off can you get any gear? yes,if yes , constantly? with no grinding, the clutch is ok.

to do that manual shifter off test test the shifter must be removed.



the we get to the cable.
see the 1inch rule here, no guessing.
play set to spec, and you floor the pedal , person 2 sees 1 inch travel, (END new cable worry)
if it moves 1inch and the tranny can not be SELECTED.
the clutch is bad, if you can select only stalled motor.
if selection fails all time, stalled and running, the tranny is siezed.
covers every fail logged by 1000s of users

No tension on clutch peddle


That sounds like it could be... I'm assuming the bearing slipped off of the fork, and that would give you this condition, see if you can look in through the rubber boot at the fork to see this.

Took over a 95 geo tracker project car. alot of mhands in there before me. haveing problems with the clutch cable linkage under the dash. either somethings missing or has wrong parts on it. do you have a...


the cable just hooks over the top of the clutch pedal.
Google Clutch cable and you will get an automotive site.
Select Tracker and you should pull up a picture.
There is very little to it.
The cable comes through the firewall and hooks on the top of the clutch pedal.
Hope that helps
