Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

2000 tracker same problem as bonedssss

Dear scr,
My wife took her Tracker to our mechanic for regular service,. Mechanic replaced valve cover, and replaced the right rear axle seal, and refilled the differential with oil. Wife drove home from garage yesterday. This morning car felt like it was stuck and only moved a few feet. Did not roll in neutral. I put it in 4WD and drove around the lot and once and did feel resistance like ER was on, which I don't think is the problem..it sounds more like bonedsss problem. How should I approach the mechanic Monday? What is the best way? We're new here and he did some good work before, and was reasonable. Do you think he spilled oil on brakes, when he did the work,or did put on seal correctly causing spillage. I just want to be somewhat prepared and not charged any more. Any advice on this would be helpful.

Thanks,

wjh

    SCR,



    Thanks so much SCR. The mechanic sent out a tow truck today, and seemed concerned over the phone that there might have been leakage onto the drum, and is We didn't pay for the tow, and if there's any problems it seems we can work them out, but it's good that I've had your extra input as a precaution. California is much more regulated--it at least seems they enforce fair practices, more than CT where we lived, so that is added bonus, but I doubt it'll get that far. Thanks for the speedy reply, suggestions, and help.

Just tell him your are experiencing same concern as when you first brought it to him. The new seal may have failed. If you have the time, stay ask to see the results of his recheck. I find most shops are reputable and will admit if they error. parts fail and humans make mistakes. If they work with you then all is good. If not call the credit card company and stop the payment if you truly believe they are not being fair. other remedies are BBB & DMV. Each agency will take a report and do little else. So keep your records, and if they are not fair, take the car to another shop for a second opinion. Keep me posted.

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

answer 1 wire at a time. or it cross fires.
my guess is you meant changing carbon core
HV spark wires, but the plug wells are like oil pits. (flooded) SUPER COMMON.

(not spark tips carbon-ed up. right)

http://www.fixkick.com/IGN_timing/tune-ups.html#SETS

get he MAG wires and win.! max life and better spark!!!

all G16b do this seen 100s and all C.O.P engines.
1 cause
owners did not do full 60k mile tuneup
per operators guide, lost it have it ask.
the valve lash step, demands a new valve cover gasket set.
if not it will fAIL, it will,like pissn on a sparkplug
bam. like texas talk, i do...sorry

and a cam belt.. forgot that too?
that is fail 2 , in the woods,
or like train light in the tunnel.

not one of those parts last the life of engine
the real reasons tuneups were invented
and why planes dont crash (of ddumbb things like this)

tuneups on this engine, only make long walk home
on other engines, most DOHC. boom head valves bent or far far worse.

if lost
firing order

Having trouble taking the valve cover off of my


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.

What's involved in replacing the a/c line for a 2002 Chevy Tracker ZR2 (small suv)?


Well your mechanic he is not a proper mechanic as i would make one ,failing which shop around scrappers or a few hydraulic repair shops who will have the tools to repair or make you a new one which your so called back street mechanic should know about.sounds like you need to find a proper qualified mechanic instead of a dealer type of semi skilled unit changer.

I took the distributor out of my 1990 tracker and didnt mark where it goes back in how can i find out


Take off valve cover to reveal number one cylinder rocker arms.

Rotate crank until you see compression stroke by watching the valve rockers.

Stop crank on TDC re-install distributor with rotor pointing at number on cylinder.

Hope this tip helps.
