SOURCE: Access to torque converter to drive plate bolts is kicking my but

Your only option is to pull the tranny and replace the seal - also check the condition of the end of the crankshaft where the seal rides for excessive gouging or the new seal my not seal without first repairing or replacing the crank, this is rare however and a new seal should do the trick.

I recomend shopping around as the seal only costs about $25 and the major cost is removing the engine or transmission to replace it (wich ever is easier sometimes the motor is, but anyway maybe you can find a local friend or family member who could R&R the transmission or motor for you at a good price id say around 500-800 would be more than fair.

Look around you would be suprised when a shop is slow what kind of deals they will give out just to get some work.

It's not bad job, just time consuming. Need a way to hold tranny up while pulling parts. Have a chilton or haynes manual.

Basically though, you need to remove transmission or be able to move it back far enough... remove flywheel from crankshaft end... unbolt and remove rear main seal retainer... replace seal and gasket... reverse procedure.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

How much transmission fluid does a 1995 geo tracker take?

With an automatic transmission,it takes 3.0qt(2.8l) unless you also drain the torque converter. Then it takes 5.4qt(5.1l) of dexron Vl.
With a manual transmission it takes 1.6qt(1.5l)of gl-4 75w90 for 4wd.
For 2wd 1.8qt(1.7l) of gl-4 75w90. Hope this helps.

Changing pvc valve

1995 Geo Truck Tracker 4WD 1.6L TBI SOHC 4cyl
The PCV Valve is located under hood, center, upper engine area, top of engine, mounted in passenger side of intake manifold.

The low gas mileage and the versatility that your 1995 through 1999 Geo Tracker offers are two benefits of owning it. The maintenance needs to be kept up on your Geo Tracker. One form of this maintenance is to replace the valve cover gasket once you have driven 100,000 miles or more.
  1. Allow your engine to cool. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air inlet hose and air intake case or air cleaner housing. Detach the PCV valve hose from the PCV valve. Separate and remove the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable from their clips.
  2. Loosen and remove the valve cover bolts. Lift the cover up and off. Using a flathead screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket out of the gasket seating area. Using automotive engine cleaner and a clean cloth rag, clean the gasket seating area.
  3. Place the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Put the cover back into place. Put the bolts in and then using a torque wrench tighten them. Do not over tighten the bolts or the gasket will not fit correctly. Reconnect the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable in the holding clips.
  4. Reconnect the rubber hose to the PCV valve. Install the air intake case, or air cleaner housing, and the air inlet hose. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Add oil to the car and start the engine. Allow the car to run 10 to 15 minutes. This will allow the oil to lubricate the engine while it moves to the top.
I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

My 1993 Geo Tracker auto tran jerks when starting off from a complete stop,it's as if it's completely out of gear and drops back in when the RPMs come up? It works perfectly after that.

Check the fluid level to make sure it's full. If it is the problem is probably internal and will require a rebuild. This is one of the first signes of transmission or torque converter failure.

Transmission won't shift from low gear .

Check you transmission fluid if its thin theres your issue if not it could be your bands or your torque converter.
