Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker
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.
Make sure you lube the outside door handles. They bind up over time and then crack.
How did the 235 tires fit?
I've been thinking about trying a larger set but didn't think a set larger than 215 would fit.
