Question about 1992 Geo Tracker

2 Answers

I have a 92 Tracker, almost trouble free, but lately it won't always start. when it doesn't start I can hear a low clicking noise from around the fuse box kinda like a relay switch or something. I found the unit that was emitting the noise, near the fuse box.It is a little black almost square box (about 1"x1.5"x1.25") and seems to be the termination point of a 4-post wire harness. Could that be my problem? and if so what is it called?

Most likely what your describing is a Starter Relay. Typically it's a 4 point connector. The odds are the Starter itself maybe the problem. I would pull the starter out and have the auto-part store bench test it. Normally, the solenoid goes bad on the starter causing the problem like it intermittently wouldn't always crank the engine. The starter relay itself rarely goes bad.

That's a starter relay ,sounds like your starter may be the problem. The small wire at the starter start connection is where you need to check that you are getting 12v when you turn the key to start.If you do get voltage than for sure it's starter issuses.

I have a 1996 chevy geo tracker it won't start


Hi Leigh, Have the charging rate of the alternator checked. If you have a voltage test meter, select a voltage range above 15 volts DC and measure the voltage across the positive and negative poles of the battery. It will show a low voltage before the vehicle is started. Jump start and measure the voltage again. If the voltage is about thirteen volts or more, the problem is with the battery, which you'll need to replace. If the voltage across the terminals remains at the voltage first recorded before start up, the problem is with the alternator. Regards John

I'm having trouble with my brakes for a 1993 cutlass ciera s and lately I been hearing a rubbing and grinding noise coming from my rear brakes could anyone tell me what kind of problem this is ?


My first question would be have you taken the drums off and looked at the brake shoes yet ?
You won't know whats going on until you do.
It could be worn out shoes, or a broken spring rubbing the drum, or any number of things.

Won't start, lights work and radio also but will not turn over


If lights work, radio but not turn over. First of listen to see if it clicks when turning key, if that happens most likely it is the solenoid on the starter not triggering, if you hear nothing when turning the key, then the cable coming from the battery that goes down to the starter is loose, bad connection. Make sure that the cable from battery is tight, and clean. If Like I said you hear a click when trying to start car, then it is starter/solenoid issue. I hope this helps, if it does please rate my free advice accordingly> Thanks Mike. and check out my personal expert site....

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

My 2000 chevy tracker wont start.starter is cranking but motor wont fire.lately when fuel is low it starts making a horribe clanking noise.like its choking.a local mechanic said its probaly fuel...


The fuel tank needs a certain amount of pressure to operate the fuel pump. Make sure the gas cap is tight, believe it or not if the fuel cap is loose or faulty the check engine light will come on. It could also be the fuel filter or also the fuel pump.

Loud Knocking when pressing on gas pedal


What you are describing sounds like you have an engine bearing failing. Do not drive it 'till you have it diagnosed and repaired (most times though it's too late when you hear it.)..... Outside chance it could be the trans flex plate but I doubt it.
