Question about 1992 Geo Tracker

2 Answers

Engine vibration on 1.6 L Cyl. Tracker 4x4 after clutch pack, throughout Brg, and cable were replaced. Driving in gear at 2K rpm constant load it's quite and smooth. shifting up thru 5 gears or down 5 gears when clutch is depressed to change the rock crushing sound returns as RPM falls off normally. A new crank was installed 2yrs ago less then 12k miles and had been running great with excellent gas mileage.

    cable refers to clutch cable on this 4x4. EL SMOKIE

    If it's the crank it shouldn't run under load. There is some flywheel movement in/out according to the trans mechanic, I'll look this afternoon. El SMOKIE

Vibrations are caused by engine components, they can also be caused by piston slap, excessive valve lash, excessive bearing clearances, deformation of parts under stress, crankshaft and camshaft deformations. Also problems with axel and wheel bearings can cause abnormal vibration. If you detect an abnormal vibration in your vehicle consult immediately a mechanic, the safety of the vehicle may be compromised.

Clutch cable geo tracker


don't want to shift? fills a huge basket ,
1: grinds?
2: can't get in to some gears.? or all gears.? (engine running and not)?
3: clutch drags, clutch slips kills all gears, or just 5th.
drag kills them all and reverse 1st , its the canary gear. !! non synchro
4: noise.? or chatter, ****,larchig, or throwout hash ,?

here is the clutch page, link below.

the #1 failure for a gear not Selecting is a $5 fix.
the tip of the shifter shaft, plastic POS is broken, bar none this failure,#1 and sold only at SUZ, get em' while you can they are chapter 11 ANDGM/GEO is brain dead , ask them , and you get blank stares.

this can be proven, by selecting the gears by hand. running.
if failure, cant move those fork rods?
running? only
if you cant, the clutch is dragging. see why?
works stalled means the clutch drags.
can you shift to 1st stalled, start engine drive off can you get any gear? yes,if yes , constantly? with no grinding, the clutch is ok.

to do that manual shifter off test test the shifter must be removed.



the we get to the cable.
see the 1inch rule here, no guessing.
play set to spec, and you floor the pedal , person 2 sees 1 inch travel, (END new cable worry)
if it moves 1inch and the tranny can not be SELECTED.
the clutch is bad, if you can select only stalled motor.
if selection fails all time, stalled and running, the tranny is siezed.
covers every fail logged by 1000s of users

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

I have a Ford 1995 Ford F150 4x4 with 5.8L and E4OD trans.My problem is a vibration occurs at approx. 60,80 and 100 kph.I have changed all wheel brgs.drive shaft,transfer box,rear end overhauled--so think...


I also have a 95 Ford F150 4x4 5.0l, extended cab two piece drive shaft. E40d trany in fourth gear accelerating or not it will vibrate badly but only slightly in any other gears. The first thing I did was rebuild the trany, no luck same exact conditions. All clutchs and bands replaced, synthic fluid, new torque converter, and a shift kit from TCI. Still does the same thing.

Clutch peddle constantly vibrates up and down and smoke is coming from the engine area, also there is a high pitch sqeaking noise. any ideas?


If your clutch is pulsing you are feeling the crankshaft moving back and forth. The noise is related and this noise could ver well be a spun main brg. Serious ckg needs to be done. Drain the engine oil and note any sign of oil burning, being overheated and any bearing Material presence.l

Vehical acts as if it shifts between gears at a


The possibilities are:
low/high trans fluid level
short or open in LR pressure switch circuit
solenoid pack internal problem
40-way connector problem (9, 47, or 50 cavity)
control module failure
and then internal transmission problem (the rebuild).
Another table lists these possibilities:
faulty cooling system
torque converter clutch failure (that requires removal)
internal solenoid leak
too high or too low pressure
valve body leak
regulator valve
stuck/sticky valves
worn or damaged accumulator seal rings
damaged clutch seals
damaged L/R clutch
worn pump

Only the seal rings and L/R clutch damage and torque converter clutch failure would dictate a rebuild.
All the other items are serviceable without removing the trans, and involve the solenoid box for the most part which is external and accessible. So armed with these possible causes I would shop around to find a trans shop that would take a look at the alternatives to a rebuild job. The rebuild is in the range of $2k, so spending some time on the alternatives seems to be in order.

Fan kicking in too often 1998 f150 4x4 4.6 tow


If the engine is not over heating then it is doing its job. The constant cycling is based on the temp of the air traveling through the radiator and the a/c condenser not the outside temp so much. The start up high rev is just how these clutches work in ford fans. It sounds like it is operating correctly.

Bad vibration engine trans under load


seems your problem is within your clutch,defective part,usually a defective release bearing will cause gear shifter and pedal vibration but not as bad as yours,but by pressing on clutch pedal vibration stops,point to clutch!
