I have an oil leak behind my timing chain cover/assembly where it meets the valve cover. The leak looks to be coming from a seal between the valve cover and the timing chain assembly, directly above the water pump. I am looking for detailed instuctions on the removal and replacement of this assembly?? DIAGRAMS OF THIS AREA of the engine would be very helpful and greatly appreciated. I need a FIXYA! I am losing about a half a quart of oil every few days.

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.
What makes you think the valve cover was leaking,was oil coming from there.Exactly where is it leaking from.If the oil filter is tighten too tight,then it will leak,also by the oil filter is the oil pressure switch,it's screwed into block,it can leak.The rear oil seal can leak,where engine and transmission meet.If valve cover is not installed correctly,it will leak and loose compression.
Possibly, but I'd replace the leaking gasket/seal. Also note, the Honda uses a timing belt (not a chain), and you don't want oil on the belt. If there's a chance the belt has gotten oil on it, you want to take the timing belt cover off, remove the belt, and clean all the oil covered parts. The oil can wear out the belt as well as cause the belt to slip timing
Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
Add fresh oil to the new pump to prime it. Check the alignment on the new oil pump drive with the crankshaft/intermediate crankshaft timing.
Install the new pump carefully, rotating it back and forth a little to make sure it has full surface contact between the pump and the engine block.
Hold the pump in its sealed position and put in the pump mounting bolts, tightening them to 15 ft-lb.
Put the engine oil pan back in and refill the crankcase. Start the engine and check for leaks on the parts you replaced
you could have leaking valve cover gaskets leaking or a bad oil sending unit (oil pressure gague) .. make sure the oil is not red .. that wiould be a transmission leak .. over thghtning of the oil filter can cause leaks .. a clogged PCV valve can force oil out thru seals .. one way to track down leaks .. is to spray the engine with an engine solvent like Gunk .. then wash that off with a hose after it sits for a few minutes (keep water out of distributer).. that will clean the surfaces pretty good .. then it becomes obvious where leaks are coming from .. if the oil turns out to be red in color . then look for hoses from the transmission to the radiator (transmission cooler) .. those frequently leak ..
This MAY seem Strange But It IS ALL necessary for Oil Pump Replacement. And Please Don't Forget to Rate Me as Most Folks Do Not. Thank You and GOOD LUCK with the Oil Pump Job Also
OIL PUMP It is necessary to remove the oil pan, oil pickup and chain case cover to service the oil pump rotors. The oil pump pressure relief valve can be serviced by removing the oil pan and oil pickup tube. Refer to Timing Chain Cover Removal and Installation for procedures.
To remove the relief valve, proceed as follows:
Drill a 3.175 mm (1/8 inch) hole into the relief valve retainer cap and insert a self-threading sheet metal screw into cap.
Clamp screw into a vise and while supporting chain case cover, remove cap by tapping chain case cover using a soft hammer. Discard retainer cap and remove spring and relief valve.
Remove oil pump cover screws, and lift off cover.
Remove pump rotors.
Wash all parts in a suitable solvent and inspect carefully for damage or wear.
Oil Pump Assembly
Assemble pump, using new parts as required. Install the inner rotor with chamfer facing the cast iron oil pump cover.
Tighten cover screws to 12 Nm (105 inch lbs.).
Prime oil pump before installation by filling rotor cavity with engine oil.
Install chain case cover. Refer to Timing Chain Cover Installation.
REMOVAL of Timing cover REMOVAL
Disconnect negative cable from battery.
Remove timing chain cover.
REMOVAL Of Oil Pan to gain Access to OIL PUMP
Disconnect negative cable from battery and remove engine oil dipstick.
Raise vehicle on hoist and drain engine oil.
Remove bending brace to transaxle attaching bolt.
Remove bolts attaching dust cover to transaxle housing. Lower dust cover to gain access to oil pan bolts.
Remove oil pan screws and remove oil pan.
Clean surfaces and apply a 1/8 inch bead of Mopar (R) Silicone Rubber Adhesive Sealant or equivalent, at the parting line of the chain case cover and the rear seal retainer.
Use a new pan gasket.
Install pan and tighten screws to 12 Nm (105 inch lbs.).
Install dust shield and bending brace to transaxle housing.
