SOURCE: 93 GEO TRACKER

I believe the pin should be positioned at the top, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm going to say that the position you had when the fuel backed up into the carb is 180 degrees out on the cam, and that the valves were opening during the compression stroke, therefore blowing the fuel back instead of pulling it in. If you know where the gear was during this, then take it off, go a complete 180 degrees with the cam, and put it back on. This should get you close enough to for the engine to start, then you'll need to dial it in.

SOURCE: need to change timming belt 1997 geo tracker

TIMING BELT CHANGE You should have some mechanical skills before attempting any engine maintenance! These are basic instructions, and you must knoe what you removed, when, and what order so you can reinstall them in order. First, you have to remove everything in the way! You need to remove the Fan, clutch, and shroud, pump pully & drive belts. Next, you need to remove the Crank Pully:

1. Crank Pully Bolt 2. Crank Pully 3. Center Bolt 4. 5mm Hex drive (used to remove pully bolts) Once the fan stuff, and pully(s) are removed, then you need to remove the Timing Belt cover:

Once the cover is removed, you will need to loosen the adjusting nut and pully bolt on the Belt Tensioner:
A. Adjust Nut B. Pully Bolt C. TENSIONER PULLY Once the the Adjust Nut, and Pully bolt are loose, move the pully as far towards the water pump as possible.
Then, you can slip the timing belt from the sprockets. Check the tensioner for roughness and excess play! DO NOT MOVE THE CAM OR CRANK SPROCKETS! IF you do, then you will have to line up the Crank and Cam for piston number one at Top Dead Center before placing the new timing belt on! Note the timing marks on the crank and camshaft sprockets. IF YOU MUST! Allign the Cam and Crank at piston#1, Top Dead Center before removing the belt. Each sprocket has a small hole, with a line through it, and there is a small groove or "V" it alligns with on the engine. Now, once the timing belt is off, look at your new timing belt. Older belts use the Squared off teeth, while new ones have the rounded teeth. Make sure you have the correct belt for your sprockets! Never reinstall a belt that is in questionable condition. BELT WEAR CONDITIONS
If there are Arrows on the belt, they must be pointing to the RIGHT when you put the new belt on the sprockets. If there isn't one, then paint one on, and place the belt back on the sprockets. The arrow will indicate to a mechanic, this is the way the belt must be put back on (if they replace any cam or crank oil seals). Slip the new belt onto the Crank sprocket. While maintaining tension on the side of the belt opposite the tensioner, slip the belt onto the Camshaft sprocket. Releace the Tensioner adjusting nut to allow spring tension against the belt. Temporarily reinstall the crank pully, taking care to align the notch in the pully with the raised area on the sprocket. Rotate the crank clockwise two complete revolutions. Recheck the alignment of the of the valve timing marks. If they do not align properly, loosen the tensioner, slip the belt off the crank pully, align the timing marks, reinstall the belt, and check alignment again. Tighten the tensioner nut, then the bolt. Reinstall all parts removed, in the opposite order, of course. Start the engine and allow to reach normal operating temp, then road test. THEORETICALLY, you should simply be able to replace the belt with the new one, and go, as long as you did not move any of the sprockets when removing or installing the belt. Most people do it this way, and do not test for alignment before replacing everything. When the belt wears, timing will be off, very little, and this is why you check alignment. The belt may have slipped a tooth, making the timing off. This is why the Cam and Crank sprockets must both align properly. An experienced person will do just that: Replace the belt, and go. It really isn't all that hard. It helps to have a second person around with some experience also.

How to replace the carbon on 94 geo tracker?


carbon (Slept 3 nights,(on vac 30 day)\
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

Oil leak? pan or valve cover? placed cardboard template under oil pan-shows oil all over area template?


there are only but a few leak points, on this water cooled engine.
  1. valve cover gasket tops list.
  2. the 2 distributor o-rings, leaks down bell housing.
  3. or the distributor base housing not mounted and sealed by the book. (need book?)
  4. front cam seal (cover off look)?
  5. front crank seal (or the bolt was never set to 94ft/lbs, torque. 17mm head bolt.
  6. pan never leaks its glued on day one in the Cami factory with RTV, unless prev. owner fiddled with it. (new oil pump done wrong)
  7. last it the rear oil seal, rear to leak.

there are only 2 way sto find leaks, get it clean, drive short distance.
see what leaks.
or
use the dye kit, a kit with UV lamp and dye, pack.

id do a #! valve cover, the 60k mile inspection , adds one, and most of these cars get on 60k service, ever , so the gaskets are all hard.
and useless on every one ive ever seen.

I have 1994 geo tracker, i have to replace oil pan as it is corroded and leaking oil. Do i have to pull the engine out to remove oil pan or is there another way to do tjhis?


there are 2 ways, and both are here.
pull engine
pull axle
it;s your choice, and covered here and the factory service book too.
depends on tools, (lift?)

way 1
http://www.fixkick.com/axles/Pan-drop/pandrop.html

way 2: (factory way)]
here is the pull page. engine
and last link there is to fsm page on same.

happy trails.
PS
99% of leaking pans, are NOT.
it is :
1: valve cover leaks, (not doing 60k service and not putting in new VC)
2: cam seal leaks.
3: crank seal leaks.
4: the infamous, dizzy 2 o-ring leaks.
5: and doing head rebuild, they forget to read the page on how
to seal the rear cam cap. and bam, it leaks, the FSM covers that.
i can tell you which page.\
and gravity does the rest with help from mr. wind.

if the pan is only rusty, hit it with phosperic acid (ask) and then paint it on car. the PAN is RTV glued to the engine are never leak. (almost)
and are real hard to get them resealed , leak free. so makes sure
it really does leak.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

No just finished a valve replacement on 92 geo tracker 8v eng. set crank to TDC on #4 cyl and the cam to the proper alignment notch on rear valve cover and installed the new timing belt. However after all...


When timing belts are installed, the normal position of the crankshaft is for #1 cylinder to be at TDC. Here is a picture of the timing belt routing and the timing marks.
