Cost can not be determined until the actual problem is know.
my guess. is the cam belt has slipped on this G16b engine
this also puts spark way retarded.
this happens when driven over 60,000 miles and not servicing
the cam belt.

or last mech left distributor clamp bolt , fully loose?
causing spark timing to be way off (check it first)
or far worse. (ill leave that out)

CAN YOU REPLACE A 1995 GEO TRACKER ENGINE WITH A TRACKER ENGINE WITH A CRANK SHAFT SENSOR???


what years? her ill give examples (no 1.8L sports)
in each case keeping original in/exh manifold of origional
this is called, a Long block swap......!
96 to 95 16v ok ( the crank sensor just sets there, doing zip)
96 to 95 8v no go. ( it will run by ECU while have fuel mapping)
95 8v to 96 16v no go ( missing crank sensor and mapping issues)
95v 16v to 96 16v,(missing crank sensor, move it.)

and you can swap any with harness and ecu. and manifolds.

see swaps here
http://www.fixkick.com/SWAPS.html#G16Bswaps

and links to near infintate swap data.

Engine accesories brackets 1996 geo tracker


correcting an old post.
Do not listen to the guessing persons. this car is a V belt car. all are, by Geo 1.6L 89-98 (1.8L Suz, different car and matter)
the 96 tracker is a 1.6L SOHC motor,
they are sold with and with out A/C or P/S. "options"
so are set up 4 different ways, ( i have the full 96 parts list)

try this.

A/c compressor makes screeching noise in geo tracker 96


This is just a guess but the screeching might not be the compressor. You might need a new drive belt and make sure you put belt drive dressing if you replace it.

When accelerating in my 96 5 speed tracker it sputters the whole time. keeps sputtering even at cruising speeds it still sputters when i hit the gas.


Is your check engine light on ? Should be on dash a yellow light that says (check engine soon) If it is go to your local Auro Zone and they will run a code scanner and give you a detailed readout on paper as to what the codes say is the problem,,,,,,,,,,,,,Im thinking your oxy sensors are bad, But you go check it out.

Have a 92 GEO Tracker 2wd, 1.6 l, 80,000m on it. Just replaced distributor, wires, plugs. Hard to start, idles rough, spits and sputters while driving. Seems to do some backfiring through the carb when...


Sounds like a timing problem....put a timing light on it to ensure the engine is in time. Otherwise, you may have a bad ignition control module (ICU/ECU)...computer. check the timing first...good luck
