its in the free manuals.
all this, G16 engines.
its just 2 bolts (disconnect battery neg lug first (step 1) in all cases.
the problem is there are 2 G16 engines, 8valve and 16vale
the intake man-fold is above your part. so getting there can be hard
and you never said, is it 4wd or 2wd car, matters.
and on my 2 , cars, had the factory off road bash plates up front and other places. (options, factory very good)
in any case, we can do this,
first tell me what engine is there, 8v or 16v (16valves is clearing cast in place on the valve cover)
what makes you think its bad,?
is your car 5sp stick 3sp auto or 4speed auto trans?
the 5speed, kills the starter,dead at the clutch switch.
the 3 auto trans, do the same at the PRNDL switch
if the starter hot wires ok, then the starter is not bad
ending my long long post on starters.
here do this.
92 Geo Tracker, 4wd, 4speed, 4door car,, (correct my guess)
see that line, tells the helper what car you own,,, lots of variances there are. and the presents of the bash plate below engine.
4wd option 2. that is.
step one is to hot wire it.
step one is a tests. called hot wiring
pass or fail tells you whats wrong, and is very easy tests.
if you can reach the solenoid, (from under car.) not topside
got jack stands,
you will need them.
never use a jack and crawl under any car ever or use bricks.
now the starter views on both engines.
the 1992 car for sure had 2 engines, for sure.
the first photo here is the might 16v engine, (new here being dropped in , and see starter plain as day, in fact both engines same place.
getting there is the ONLY
as you can clearly see, the intake off this is childs play.
but my guess, thats too hard, to do . (im 69 and can)
the 8v has a large intake manifold braces that is in the way
the 16v is unique with its own intake.
the 8v view , shows ALT tilted here, the photos are all there.above
1: if the hot wire test passes. all this is a wasted effort !!!
on this forum and others we have a record of 5 starter swaps!
before owners did the hot wire test and learned, OMG IT WORKING.
2: the starter is not easy to get to. on any Sidekick/Tracker.
3: the alternator needs to be tilted or removed , and that depends on the size and heath of the mech, can you bend over a fender?
or even reach that far,(big tummy) skinny arms for large.??
size matters, working on RICE, or FWD bs cars.
4: the INTAKE brace seen on 8v can be a pain to get off.
it will tilt too, but must have top bolts off, and bottom loose.
5: bam, 2 wires 2 bolts its off.
its a long post but this starter is not just15min work like other cars.
its more deep,,,,,
do tell again what car you have in details. and get 10x better answers. 4w? stick or auto?
