Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

99 chevy tracker is running very rough, hard to accelerate

When I shift gears, it seems to run really rough and not want to accelerate. Sometimes it smooths out a bit, but then I have to change gears again. Anyone have any ideas? Spark plugs? How do we change them.

    Had the same problem with a 99 with auto tranny. Had a chevy dealer do a diagnostic, the speed limit sensor was out. Replaced at a costly $285 and it runs better than it has in awhile. If you know the plugs and fuel filter, and pcv valve is good, may try a computer diagnostic

Have you checked the fuel pressure under a load, low pressure will cause these symptoms. The test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel supply rail to the fuel injectors, the fuel pressure test port looks like a large tire fill valve. You will need a fuel pressure test gauge to do this test (about $20), the pressure must be watched while you accelerate, it should never go down on hard acceleration just up about 6-8 PSI

u need to have the system tested for trouble codes, but u most likely have a defective trans 1-2 shift solenoid. to replace this u will need to pull the trans pan off the solenoids are attached to the valve body, also check the trans connector for water or corrosion.
