Question about 1992 Geo Tracker
Posted by Anonymous on
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
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.

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.

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.
Fig. 15: When installing the crankshaft sprocket (pulley), ensure that the concave side of the timing belt guide is facing the engine 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)
Fig. 17: ... and ensure that the crankshaft sprocket (1) timing mark (2) is aligned with the mark on the oil pump (3)
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
Fig. 19: To properly tension the timing belt, rotate the crankshaft through two full revolutions
In this position, the No. 4 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke.

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.
