Question about Geo Tracker
Posted by Anonymous on
Humidity and spark are (not friends)
non pure water conducts electricity.
so if the wires are bad , it leaks and fails
no spark wire, ever lasts life of engine so
we replace them (if savvy) before they fail.
or at the TUNEUP.
ever get a tuneup this decade?
1989 to 1998
which engine, 8valve or 16v.
the VIN on all trackers tells you what engine i there.
vin U = 8valve
vin 6 = 16valve. 16v for short....
the 16valve the valve cover is not black, and shouts 16 valves in huge letters cast in the cover.
my guess, bad spark wires, and plugs long gone.
or on 16v the spark plug wells are full of water or oil.
no Valve cover gaskets replaces at 60k miles service... caused?
if in usa, no canada, open hood look up
that EPA sticker tells you what engine is there.
or post your VIN.
post photo of engine.
the valve cover gasket is a 60k, mile service too. (at valve lash check its replaced)
this action prevents the spark wells from filling with oil... every time.
rotor bad (tuneup)
distributor cab bad (tuneup part)
sparks plugs bad...(tuneup again)

You did not mention the year of your car so it is hard to answer. If it is old enough to still have a distributor then you may have moisture inside the cap. Pop it loose and spray with electrical contact cleaner or WD-40. Also look for cracks in the cap and/or damage to the seal at the bottom of the cap while you have it off. If you have any doubts about it replace it.
