SOURCE: oxygen sensor 2000 2 liter Tracker

You have an heated Oxygen sensor. 2 of the wires heat up the sensor and keep it at a certain temperature, it is turned on and off by the computer. The other 2 are use to send a very low voltage reading back to the computer to tell the computer if the engine is running rich or lean. I don't have a diagram to tell you which wire does what but you can get a manual and that should give you the information that you need and tell you how to trouble shoot it to tell if the sensor is bad or not, you may want to look for a wire laying on the exhaust, I have found wires burnt and lay on the metal.

SOURCE: I need the torque specs

This should do the trick, torque to specs then additional 90 degrees turn on all bolts

Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

  • Use the following sequence in order to tighten the cylinder head bolts: Tighten
    1. Tighten bolt 1 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    2. Tighten bolt 2 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    3. Tighten bolt 3 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    4. Tighten bolt 4 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    5. Tighten bolt 5 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    6. Tighten bolt 6 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    7. Tighten bolt 7 to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    8. Tighten bolt 8 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    9. Tighten bolt 9 to 63 N·m (46 lb ft).
    10. Tighten bolt 10 (stud bolt) to 58 N·m (43 lb ft).
    11. Then tighten all bolts an additional 90 degrees

    Oil leak? pan or valve cover? placed cardboard template under oil pan-shows oil all over area template?

    there are only but a few leak points, on this water cooled engine.
    1. valve cover gasket tops list.
    2. the 2 distributor o-rings, leaks down bell housing.
    3. or the distributor base housing not mounted and sealed by the book. (need book?)
    4. front cam seal (cover off look)?
    5. front crank seal (or the bolt was never set to 94ft/lbs, torque. 17mm head bolt.
    6. pan never leaks its glued on day one in the Cami factory with RTV, unless prev. owner fiddled with it. (new oil pump done wrong)
    7. last it the rear oil seal, rear to leak.

    there are only 2 way sto find leaks, get it clean, drive short distance.
    see what leaks.
    use the dye kit, a kit with UV lamp and dye, pack.

    id do a #! valve cover, the 60k mile inspection , adds one, and most of these cars get on 60k service, ever , so the gaskets are all hard.
    and useless on every one ive ever seen.

    Oil leaking from rear valve cover gasket & getting burnt oil smell thru air vents inside vehicle

    Thi depends on whether you want to do it yourself or not. It's an easy fix, just get the gasket and remove the valve cover. It's tidious but doable. Otherwise, get ready to spend $150-200 for a shop.

    I have a 1994 geo tracker ,with 4 cylinder engine, it has been leaking oil and i just noticed the 4 bolts holding the valve cover were not tight. I would like to know if anyone nhas idea how they became...

    most valve covers screws are loose.
    they use very low torque.
    and as the gasket ages, (gee the tbelt service changes it at 60,000 miles every time) but the old gaskets do shrink and must be replace way before they harden and shrink.
    there are 2 engines, one is 16v alum. cover. and 8v steel cover.
    so cant help much lacking that fact.
    the 8v has as little as 33 INCH lbs force, 2.7 foot lbs.
    as you can see that is TINY, can can be construed as loose and is for SURE not.
    that is because the steel cover will DEFORM too tight and actually leak like that.

    here are both settings for both engines.

    all old kick enignes leak oil
    at the VC (valve cover)
    and the Distributor 2 o-rings
    and both are lack of proper service.
    here is the page.
    see #2 and #3 here.
    id bet it was NEVER DONE.

    off tune up page.

    I have a 1997 chev cavalier with a leaky valve pan that needs replacement can you tell me the torque specs for the valve cover please 2.2 litre

    Valve covers don't need to be very tight. A torque wrench isn't necessary as all they do is contain the oil. If it is leaking you will likely need to replace the valve cover gasket. Just tighten it with a small ratchet and socket until it's snug. Over tightening will compress the gasket and cause it to leak. If you feel you need to use a torque wrench, i would guess about 10 or 15 lbs.
