Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker

2 Answers

Not getting oil pressure with first start up of day.

I have a 2000 Chevy Tracker with 75,700 miles. When I start it for the first time each day, it sounds as if its not getting oil. After about 30 seconds, the noise stops. I have changed oil every time it is needed on a regular basis. Do you know if this vehicle has issues with oil pumps?
If not, any idea what could be causing the problem? It's a 4 cylinder, 2.0, with 4 wheel drive.
Also, does the whole differential have to come off to to get the oil pan off or will the pan slide down away from the pickup?

Thank You,
Kelly

Sounds like the oil pump check valve is not holding pressure on the system.  It should not bleed down significantly. after 30 seconds the oil pump has regained the necessary pressur eto quiet the engine.  This is not a task I would recommend for a DIYer.

I need to replace an oil pressure sensor and a oil pan gasket on a 1999 Chevrolet Tracker. Which part should I replace first?


Collette, do oil pressure sensor first to make sure oil pressure is good in case it is not, then maybe you will have to change oil pump when pan off if found to be defective. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Cars are stupid now days. You will have to remove other things to get it out. Some times you can pry and bend some tubes/ brackets to remove them. Sometimes you just have to loosen the bolts/nuts. Sometimes they are really a pain and have to remove everything.

How do I get rid of the change oil message on dashboard. I had a 2000 Chevy Silverado 5.3 liters and just changed the oil but still get the message. And, is it better to change the oil every 5,000 miles or...


Turn the key to the on position. Do not start. Pump the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. This will reset the oil life.
Please rate by checking one of the four thumbs ups.
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!
