the best thing to get is the Haynes manual for your car at advanced auto or autozone or somewhere like that and the book will tell you how to take everything apart and put it back. i think the manual is about $16.00

After replacing the thermostat, you must bleed the air from the cooling system.

To bleed air from the 2.2L and 2.5L engines, remove the plug or sensor on the top of the thermostat housing. Fill the radiator with coolant until the coolant comes out the hole. Since the plug is made out of steel and the thermostat housing is aluminum, it is a good idea to apply an anti-seizing compound or Teflon® tape on the plug threads prior to installation. Install the plug and continue to fill the radiator. This will vent all trapped air from the engine.

Any trapped air in the heating system will have to be displaced by coolant. Once the cooling system is filled, with the radiator cap off, turn of the heater at it's highest setting. Start the engine and allow it to reach operating temp. You should see a drop in the coolant level as the air in the heating system is displaced by coolant. Add coolant to the proper level and replace the radiator cap.

Keep a close eye on the coolant level for at least the next couple of weeks. The cooling system is a "closed" system. Any significant decrease in coolant level indicates a problem.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Drive safe and be warm.

Chevy tracker power steering belt change


I don't know model year? Is the radiator fan electric or belt driven? If electric look for electrical connector. Your water pump has to be driven by something. If fan is belt driven, some makes and models, that same belt drives the water pump.

My 2002 chevy tracker 120,000 miles. steering became tight in spots and got worse. I replaced the power steering pump. it made no difference. what can it be?


It could be the rack, bad tie rod ends, etc. Are you sure there is enough fluid in the system. If it's getting worse, you need to have a mechanic look at it. You don't want to lose steering when you are driving down the road.

Power loss overheating


Some excellent shop you go to

They never have diagnosed an overheating issue!!

I surely can't guess either but would be checking for
exhaust gases in the coolant & possible head gasket

I would do a cylinder leak down test even if I was going
in the wrong direction

I would do a cylinder contibution test electrically

The shops stopped short of using all the toys in the box
so to speak

Alternator surely was a different issue as was most likely
the battery

Are you losing coolant. If you are I would check your heater core which is located under the glove compartment.

I have a 1995 chevy geo tracker that goes alright after 2 rpm on flat land but going up hill loses a lot of power .When sitting still i will press the gas and it will go to 2 rpm and then die down to 1 and...


What your reffering to is 1=1000rpm, 2=2000rpm, etc.

Sounds like you are losing power due to possibly wear on the engine; being a 1995 model, I bet it has lots of miles on it.

Your motor is probably just wore out and needs replaced or rebuilt.
