Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tracker

2 Answers

Gets warm, when you cut it off it will not start back.

I have a 2001 chevy tracker and my problem is that when it gets warm and you cut it off it will not start back until you give it time to cool off. It has a 2.0 engine and it is 4-wheel drive.Could it be that my coil pack is going bad. Also sometimes when you take off it fells like you have no power to go.

You are more than likely correct about the coil pack.  A lot of times, especially in warmer weather, this happens as coil packs start to go bad.  What happens, is as they start to fail, they get too hot and won't function properly so when you are waiting 20 to get the car started again it is giving it time to cool back down.  Take it to your local auto parts store and let them test it.  That should be your problem and will be an easy fix for you.  Good job with the diagnosis.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

I am 100% sure it is your camshaft sensor. I had the exact same problem on my 2001 chevy tracker 4 wheel drive.

My 2001 Chevy Tracker quits running after a while and will restart after about 10-15 minutes. It originally runs rough after it restarts. I have been told to replace the camshaft sensor. Also, when I...

Had the same problem with my tracker. Replaced the camshaft position sensor(easy to do yourself, takes about five mins.) Now can drive at highway speeds for about a half hour and stop at the gas station and she'll start back up and run fine. Before i had to wait at least 15-20mins before she would start. Also, if your service engine soon light is on take it to the national chain auto parts stores and they will hook up the code reader for free. The sensor runs about $120.

2001 Chevy tracker Air Cond

Okay, if you go to an auto part store - by a can of R-134a with the gauge on it. Start your tracker and put the A/C on Full Blast. Hook up the can or refridgerant to the LOW side (it's the larger piping for teh A/C should have a gray screw on cap. it's located on the left side under the hood). Now DON"T start refilling it... see what it says on teh guage. Also check yoru compressor. It is the bottom right pully> The pully should spin freely but there is like a cap on the front of the pully, when the compressor engauges that should spin too. If it says your low, start filling it with the refidgerant turning the can upside down and then to the right about 120 degrees then back upside down. until it reads full (in the blue range about 25 - 45) it it is showing more than that or whatever, go to a mechanic... Or you could try a dye kit that you can get at an auto parts store where you put a UV dye in it and then use a blacklight or UV flashlight to detect if there is a leak in yoru system.

Hope this helps.

Flickering lights on 2001 Chevy tracker

I had similar problems, with dash board lights and headlights flickering, and the problem was a dying alternator. After I changed it, everything got back in normal. Also, a bad alternator eventually will kill your car's battery, too. I hope this will help you.
