Question about 2000 Chevrolet Tracker
Wondering if I need to replace the timing belt in a 2.4 liter Chevrolet Tracker at a certain mileage to avoid valve damage if the belt breaks.
Oddly, I could not find any reference to a 2.4 L engine. Other sizes, yes. Who makes the engine? Suzuki, Mitsubishi?

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.

There are 4 small coild on the top of the motor, these are the ignition coils, 1 per spark plug. You have to pull the coils and the spark plugs are under them.

Should be 2 belts. Which one did you break?
If it is the larger one there is a tentioner to your left of the center of the engine as you are facing the engine, somwhat centered relative all the other stuff there. With everthing tight in the engine compartment it took me a couple of minutes to recognize it.
If it is the smaller fan belt, I had to take the fan off and adjusted it the old way, with a pry bar. Off to your right of the center of the engine as you face the engine there are 3 bolts kinda grouped together. I donot recall which one you loosen, but one of these will give you slack, use a pry bar to snug the beld up good, then tighten (while holding tight). Reassemble the fan.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: When does the timing chain
Usually 100,000-120,000 miles. They are usually dependable. Take your front protection guard off of the engine, your front timing belt cover. It should only be a bolt or two. Visually inspect it. Look for damage in the chain. If money wasn't an issue, I would change at 100,000 miles. That is what the shop always says on timing chains. If you need anything else, just let us know.
