You should disconnect the battery cables, negative cable first then disconnect the positive cable from battery and wait ten minutes (this is a good time to clean the terminals and connectors at tis time). The check engine light should be reset and disappear if all is well.

2000 CHEVY TRACKER **** AND SPUTTER IN LOWER GEARS. WHITE SMOKE FROM EXHAUST, BAD SMELL UNDER LOAD.


bad shift solenoid in transmission ,and white smoke is because you need head gasket,it is broken and you are mixing fuel with coolant,that will cause bad cat converter soon,and your engine will die soon due oil and water mix ,will kill your crank shaft and cam shaft bearing,(check your oil see if it look like milk shake,that is very bad)

Bad cam shaft senser


You could have a faulty engine coolant sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Fuel injectors clogged or dirty flooding engine.
Clean fuel injectors, replace fuel filter and air filter, and see if the problem persists.
If it does ECT sensor is bad. If CMP sensor was bad, the vehicle won\'t start whether cold or hot. CKP senso and CMP sensor work together if either one fails, the vehicle won\'t start. Have the vehicle code scanned.

2000 Chevy Tracker stalls or cuts off after running for a while...maybe gets too hot. Will restart after 10-15 minutes. If car idles in traffic or thru drive-thru service or if A/C is running the car...


It sounds like your ECU is failing when it sits in the heat for a while. It's probably due to a faulty solder joint, and the heat may cause the board to warp momentarily, causing the engine to shut off. After the board cools down, you can start the vehicle again. You can test this by using a large fan, sealed ice pack, or similar to cool the ECU, while running the vehicle. If it sits and runs fine for longer than usual, replace the ECU. If it still shuts off, you may have a sensor that is failing when it gets hot, which will probably cut the spark, causing it to not start until the sensor resets. This is more complicated to track down because each sensor must be monitored while running the vehicle to know which on is failing when the engine shuts off.

My car didnt start so i took it to auto zone to get hook on the diagnostic machine it showed need a cam shaft and crank shaft sensor i got them replace and a week later the same problem car will not start...


Does the vehicle run at all with the new sensors?? If it does and experiences stalls or hard starts, read the following. When replacing cam or crank sensors, the vehicle's computer must go through a "RELEARN PROCESS". This can only be done at a authorized GM dealer, and usually costs $130+. I'm not sure if your vehicle has been properly diagnosed, but very rare does both crank and cam sensors fail simultaniously. This problem may be beyond what has been diagnosed, If the relearn process don't work, this issue needs to be re-diagnosed by another tech.

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.

"Service enging soon" light stays on....


This could be a number of things causing this ...most common is that after you fill up the gas cap is not fully tightened...make sure it "clicks" 3 times while turning.The other common problem is that the gasket on the gas cap is old and thus does not seal the tank/fuel filler area...check with replacing the cap.If neither correct then you will need to bring to a service center or dealer to run a code check...maybe a bad O2 sensor or a code for the transmission.

Lack of power and rough idle


Is your "check engine" or "service engine soon" light on? Lacking power is usually an emission system problem, for instance possibly a bad EGR valve or mass air flow senser. O2 sensers are common to fault but normally doesn't cause power loss usually causes alittle rough idle. Could even be a pluged catalic converter to. have the truck plugged into a scanner, that will tell you the trouble codes and fault info.

Transmission stuck in 5th gear???


This is most likely one of your cam shaft sensors. The reason your transmission goes to 5th gear and stays there is because the car automatically goes into "safe mode". This prevents you from running the car on high RPM's which decreases the chance of causing more damage to the engine.
Depending on the code you get from the check engine light, it will be one of the cam-shaft sensors or the crank shaft sensor. A code reader will answer that question.
Often the sensor just fails or oil gets into the connectors which prevents proper reading. This sometimes goes away temporarily when engine is hot but problem will return.
To replace the cam shaft sensors you are looking at approximately 30 min of work. Its a tight fit but not a difficult job.
Cam shaft sensors are about $80. Not sure how much crank haft sensor is.
Hope this helps, and good luck.
