I am in the process of 'fixing up' a 2000 4x4, 4 door, 2.0, automatic, Tracker. The vehicle is in relatively great shape, but sat for close to a year in someones driveway because they didnot have the money for the plates (I known the person for years and vaguely know the vehicle).
Vehicle has 51k miles on it and I have done the folowing.
New tires, uped to 235 75 15
Changed transmition fluid and filter
Changed engine oil and filter
Changed both belts (small fan and larger accessories belts)
Minor body work
Checked both diferential fluids and levels (both are clean and full)
Checked all breaks (good meat on all of them)
Checked CV joints boots, all good shape with no sign of deteriation
Charge AC (not yet, but scheduled to be done shortly, blows cool, but not cold)
I would like to know what other out there might recomend on this particular vehicle.
I see the vehicle has a fan clutch and an electric fan. I personally donot like fan clutches and in the past replaced them with direct connect standoffs. What is the failure rate of these clutches. Should I give it a thought?
Outside of cleaning the spark plugs, should I consider replaceing them at this point. Kind of a cheap solution, guess I am wanting to know if I should bother.
Again, I am looking for pointers. This vehicle will be used in the desert areas of Texas and NM for week long camping trips, so I am looking for practicality and reliability.

Re: 2000 Chevrolet Tracker Recomendations
If it's possible (not sure if you have run the vehicle already) you may want to drop the tank and drain the gas out of it as it's probably gummed up from sitting so long. change the fuel filter as well.

Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Here are the
instructions for programming the 99-02 4Runner Keyless Entry
1. Start with the following conditions: you are in the vehicle
a. Key is out of the ignition
b. Drive door is open ( all other doors are closed)
c. Driver door is unlocked (other door
locks don't matter)
2. Insert the key into the ignition (don't turn it) and pull it out.
3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:
a. Cycle the power locks 5 times. Use an even pace and try
to go relatively fast.
b. Close, then open the drivers door.
4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:
a. Cycle the power locks 5 times (same as before).
b. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF.
c. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF.
d. Remove the key from the ignition.
5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (automatically)
indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1
if the locks do not cycle at this point.
6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:
a. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter
simultaneously for 1 second.
b. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds.
Within 3 seconds, the door locks should cycle ( LOCK then
UNLOCK) once-- indicating successful programming. If
the door locks don't cycle, or cycle twice. Repeat steps
6a and 6b--this remote has not been accepted.
c. Repeat steps 6a and 6b for EACH transmitter that will
operate the vehicle. Including any old transmitters.
7. Close the driver door.
Hope this helps you, it did me greatly-- Good luck,
1998 TF rodeo had electric door locks on some vehicles but there was no keyless entry remote on these vehicles. if you have a separate remote from the ignition key it could be an after market remote system.
if your trying to program the ignition key to start the vehicle this must be done by dealer with tech2
this is the case for Australian vehicles
later vehicles had a heart(rounded) shape keyless enty remote with 2 buttons and had red and green led for each button, which needs programming into system with tech2 by dealer
Jackaroo (Trooper) and Frontera had long rectangle 2 button remote which can be programmed into system by sequence of cycling ignition key opening and closing drivers door which newer rodeos went back to
each vehicles sequence is slightly different depending on year and vehicle.
This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however: You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.
