sounds like you have a vacuum leak, check all the vacuum hoses and replace any broken or kinked ones, also check around the intake manifold gasket for leaks. any air leaks after the air flow meter creates 'un-metered' air which inturn will make the car run rough and stall, hope this helps

I had the very same problem with my 94 tracker and it turned out to be something simple. My check engine light had popped on after it had hit 100,000. I went through all of the suggestions that people had suggested (unplug battery......etc) and still to no avail. Searching the internet, I came across a website called suzukiforum.com and there, this guy was able to help me with my problem. It turned out to be a maintenance switch that kicks on every 50,000 miles. This switch is like a secret that the auto manufactures use to ploy owners of their cars to bring to the dealer and then rack up the dollars in unnecessary "repairs". The switch is located under the dash and can be hidden anywhere. From the assistance of the guy on the forum, he was able to send me photos of this damn switch and possible locations where it may be mounted. I found mine in about 5 minutes, where it was attached to the steering column. It's a tiny switch, that you slide up or down, depending on what position it is in upon finding it. If it's up, then slide it in the down position and visa versa. Once you do this, the check engine light will go off. Make sure you do not have the car running and you can even unhook one of the battery posts, just to make sure you don't hit anything while rooting around under the dash. Good luck!

SOURCE: Geo tracker won't start
on this year car the catalytic converter might be clogged or the timing belt is broken. to see if it is the converter,take out the oxygen sensor before the catalytic converter and see if it starts if so then the converter is clogged otherwise get back to me and we'll go from there. please rate my fix as i strive to be the best Thanks Ray

This could be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor, but if the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes it has stored. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Getting the codes should narrow down the cause of the problem. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
