Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

I have an 03 Chevy tracker 4 cyl 2 wd I've been having problems with the front brakes locking up when driving. It happens at different times and different driving conditions. Sometimes pumping the pedal breaks them loose sometimes times just holding down the accelerator helps(when on freeway). I've changed pads and rotors and that helps for a little while but then it starts back up again. Someone told me it was the lines but it acts like the power booster.please help I really don't want to change everything just to fix it. That's too much money. Thank you

If both front wheels are dragging it is probably the master cylinder, if only one wheel is dragging it could be the caliper or the brake hose, jack the car up and have some one apply the brakes and try to turn the wheel the instant the brake peddle is released both wheels should start turning the instant the peddle is released....hope this helps

Transmission seems to be locking up lI have a 2003 Chevrolet tracker 4 wheel drive automatic 4 cyl


There is a small servo motor that unlocks the shifter when you press the brake pedal. Sounds like either the is no power to it or the servo has gone out.

Can't get my 95 Geo Trackers 4WD to work. The indicator light works still but the wheels themselves won't engage. Can anyone plz help me out with what might be my problem?


For Trackers (and Sidekicks) of this era (1989 to 1998) the front axle locking device is a locking hub on each front wheel. (There are no actuators until the model change in 1999.) Locking hubs come in two flavors, Manual and auto locking hubs. A look at the from wheel should tell you what you have. Manual hubs have a knob like lever with the word "lock" and "free." Auto hubs say "Auto-Locking" right on them. Both types of hubs require servicing periodicity. (Normally annually.) This means removing and disassembling. Then cleaning and light greasing before reassembling. There are some good videos on the web on how to service the manual hubs. Auto hubs are a little harder to ensure they are working properly, but some people like them. (Not me.)

Please note two things:
1. Due to differential action, BOTH hubs need to be locked for any power to be applied to the front wheels.
2. Trackers of this era are PART TIME 4x4, NOT all wheel drive. They have nothing providing for different wheel speeds front to back like a center differential. This means they should NOT be used on non-slippery surfaces like dry pavement. Beside causing handling and braking issues, it can destroy your transfercase driving on dry pavement in 4x4 due to what is called "driveline wind up".

PLEASE if you do not understand this, look it up... if you still do not understand, ask and do not use the 4x4 until you do.

I was driving down the high way after a bit going about 45 50 the car started to slow down and the brake light when on i pulled over and it felt like the brake was catching touched the front rotors...


I`ve had this problem on a different vehicle. Turns out the front brake caliper gets jammed up. After it cools off it will be ok for awhile. Be careful because when the brake fluid gets really hot from the friction and you hit the brakes, they won`t work so you need to check this as soon as possible.

Most major auto part chain stores have a loaner code scanner (they require you to leave your ID while you use the tool in their parking lot). There is a connector under the dash near on the drivers side that accepts the reader....check the codes and Google them for repair info or post them back here.
