8v or 16v , i pretend both.
this engine don't leak easy, (un like air cooled do....a horror)
this is the G16, its said you never said the location.
there are many 0-rings on this engine.
ill name them. (if replaced them all on G16s) (heck do them all)
is the PCV clean and working if not all or some will leak below.

ALL leaker's list: ( most times, it fools us)
1: dip tube (at base) (dip stick tube)
2: distributor shaft.
3: distributor housing.
4: oil filter flat Oring seal.
5: front crank seal, cam seal
6: rear rocker-ring on end of shaft. G16B 16v MPI only engine
7:rear crank seal,
8: valve cover gasket, can leak in many odd ways, making most owners think its something else.
9: head bolts loose for sure left front bolt causing block to head gallery port to leak left front of engine. but seems like front cam seal leaks..... yes, done them all.
10) pan gasket or oil pump seals (metal) the pan is glued on with RTV in the factory and never leaks unless someone messes with it.

im guessing distributor.
here are the suzuki part numbers of rings
http://www.fixkick.com/buy-parts.html#Dizzy-rings

and the clones added (Viton) that last forever, (by comparison)

how is that? (i skipped internal engine seals, like pump pickup tube)

O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

SOURCE: 2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg

SOURCE: how to put timimg belt

Here are instructions from autozone.com: Please be sure the belt is tight on the right side with the gears aligned before releasing tensioner onto belt.

To install:

  1. If necessary, install the timing belt inside cover.
  2. Slide the timing belt guide on the crankshaft so that the concave side faces the oil pump, then install the sprocket key in the groove in the crankshaft.
  3. Slide the pulley onto the crankshaft, and install the center retaining bolt. Tighten the center bolt to 48-54 ft. lbs. (65-75 Nm) for 1986-88 1.3L engines, to 76-83 ft. lbs. (105-115 Nm) for 1989-95 1.3L engines, or to 58-65 ft. lbs. (80-90 Nm) for 1.6L engines. To hold the crankshaft from turning, you can use Suzuki Tool 09927-56010 (or equivalent), or a large prybar inserted in the transmission housing slot and the flywheel teeth.
  4. Install the timing belt camshaft sprocket, ensuring that the slot in the sprocket engages the camshaft (pulley) pin; this ensures that the sprocket is properly positioned on the end of the camshaft. Secure the camshaft with the metal rod used during removal, then tighten the sprocket bolt to 41-46 ft. lbs. (56-64 Nm).
  5. Assemble the timing belt tensioner plate and the tensioner, making sure that the lug of the tensioner plate engages the tensioner.
28dd824.jpg Fig. 14: Assemble the tensioner (2) and the plate (1) so that the lug (3) engages the hole (4) in the tensioner
  1. Install the timing belt tensioner, tensioner plate and spring on the engine. Tighten the mounting bolt and stud only finger-tight at this time. Ensure that when the tensioner is moved in a counterclockwise direction, the tensioner moves in the same direction. If the tensioner does not move, remove it and the tensioner plate to reassemble them properly.
  2. Loosen all rocker arm valve lash locknuts and adjusting screws. This will permit movement of the camshaft without any rocker arm associated drag, which is essential for proper timing belt tensioning. If the camshaft does not rotate freely (free of rocker arm drag), the belt will not be properly tensioned.
  3. Rotate the camshaft sprocket clockwise until the timing mark on the sprocket and the V mark on the timing belt inside cover are aligned.
  4. Using a 17mm wrench, or socket and breaker bar, on the crankshaft sprocket center bolt, turn the crankshaft clockwise until the punch mark on the sprocket is aligned with the arrow mark on the oil pump.

bb65ba7.jpg Fig. 15: When installing the crankshaft sprocket (pulley), ensure that the concave side of the timing belt guide is facing the engine 276b66c.jpg Fig. 16: Before installing the timing belt, position the camshaft sprocket (1) so that the timing mark on the sprocket (2) is aligned with the notch (3) on the inside timing belt cover (4)

916a305.jpg Fig. 17: ... and ensure that the crankshaft sprocket (1) timing mark (2) is aligned with the mark on the oil pump (3)

a0b3629.jpg Fig. 18: Install the timing belt on the sprockets so that there is no slack in the drive side of the belt (1), then install the tensioning assembly

9b6f230.jpg Fig. 19: To properly tension the timing belt, rotate the crankshaft through two full revolutions
  1. With the camshaft and crankshaft marks properly aligned, push the tensioner up with your finger and install the timing belt on the two sprockets, ensuring that the drive side of the belt is free of all slack. Release your finger from the tensioner. Be sure to install the timing belt so that the directional arrow is pointing in the appropriate direction.

In this position, the No. 4 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke.
  1. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise two full revolutions, then tighten the tensioner stud to 18-21 ft. lbs. (24-30 Nm) for 1986-88 models, or to 80-106 inch lbs. (9-12 Nm) for 1989-95 models. Then, tighten the tensioner bolt to 18-21 ft. lbs. (24-30 Nm).
  2. Ensure that all four timing marks are still aligned as before; if they are not, remove the timing belt, and install and tension it again.
  3. Install the timing belt cover and all related components.

SOURCE: oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee

The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.

Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.

SOURCE: oil leak

I suggest cleaning the engine to help you isolate the leak location. Keep in mind that oil tends to flow down and back, so follow the trail up and forward to find the likely location of the leak.

The oil pans on my three 90-93 Accords have been notorious leakers, relatively easy to replace.

Another notorious leaker is the oil pressure switch which is mounted on the back of the block above the oil filter.

If it is primarily on the passenger side, it might be the 'rear' seal on the engine behind the flywheel. To replace this seal, the transmission and flywheel have to be removed. The seal can be purchased already installed in a plate which bolts to the right (passenger side) of the block. A Haynes manual has sufficient instructions for performing this work.

all G16b do this seen 100s and all C.O.P engines.
1 cause
owners did not do full 60k mile tuneup
per operators guide, lost it have it ask.

I have 1994 geo tracker, i have to replace oil pan as it is corroded and leaking oil. Do i have to pull the engine out to remove oil pan or is there another way to do tjhis?


there are 2 ways, and both are here.
pull engine
pull axle
it;s your choice, and covered here and the factory service book too.
depends on tools, (lift?)

way 1
http://www.fixkick.com/axles/Pan-drop/pandrop.html

way 2: (factory way)]
here is the pull page. engine
and last link there is to fsm page on same.

happy trails.
PS
99% of leaking pans, are NOT.
it is :
1: valve cover leaks, (not doing 60k service and not putting in new VC)
2: cam seal leaks.
3: crank seal leaks.
4: the infamous, dizzy 2 o-ring leaks.
5: and doing head rebuild, they forget to read the page on how
to seal the rear cam cap. and bam, it leaks, the FSM covers that.
i can tell you which page.\
and gravity does the rest with help from mr. wind.

if the pan is only rusty, hit it with phosperic acid (ask) and then paint it on car. the PAN is RTV glued to the engine are never leak. (almost)
and are real hard to get them resealed , leak free. so makes sure
it really does leak.

I put a rear seal in a 1993 geo tracker,was not leaking,now i have put two seals in ,still leaking


which seal. ? rear of WHAT?
2wd, 4wd?
3sp,4speed or 5sp. tranny.?
my wild guess, is the rear transfer case leaks, and if yes, where.?
it can leak in 3 places. (ive rebuilt them and the boxes)

or the rear engine seal.

so the rear seal can be, in 3 places.
if you work on 4wd, it really can be 5 places.
6 counting rear of front axle.
that is because the exit paths are shared on many.

first tell me what you are driving like this.
97 geo 2dr, 5sp 4wd. like that, then we can answer in fine detail.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

95 Geo Tracker AC line


Question: Is fitting leaking at the compressor or at the rubber hose end.

If leaking at the compressor hard line fitting. Try replacing "o"ring.
If leaking at the rubber hose end. Remove line and take to a HVAC shop that can replace "barrier hose (rubber hose using your fittings)

Any repair will require discharging the system.

I have a 94 tracker with hoses leaking. I would recommend replacing the rubber hose sections on both suction and liquid lines at the same time. You will have to discharge the system for either repair.
I would also recommend replacing all "o" rings accessible at this time along with a receiver dryer.

I work in the Auto parts sales for a large after market parts supply company and have found that hoses are not available from anybody, including a dealer for my 94 tracker. The system is very expensive to repair if you can find parts.

Hope this will help.
