Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

My 1999 tracker just shuts off at any time.It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold. I took it to a shop, they hooked it up to their computor. It showed nothing was wrong. They said it would have to do it while its hooked up in order to tell what is wrong. I have already replaced the fuel filter, the battery cables and the fuse. That didn't work. What could it be?

Many engine grounds are tied to the sane point, check these and also check the coil wire
Either of these could be intermittent and they would only show up on a computer if the systems lost their ground connection or the coil wire shorted to the engine block while it was hooked up

SOURCE: 1999 Chevrolet Tracker low idle problem when cold

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 1995 Chevy Van Cannot start after shutting it off without jumping

Check the crank sensor probably when you replaced the timing belt you could have either not put the crank signal ring in correctly or damaged the crank sensor.

SOURCE: No power after changing gas fuel pump for 91 chev

check starer cable make shur that not grounded to exhaust
also make shur that there is a short ground wire from the neg connection at the batt to the body
there should not be poer at the ground
start pulling fuses to find your circuit that is causing the short
that should help you isolate the area that has the draw or short

SOURCE: 1999 Chevy Cavalier A/C blows hot air

More likely the recharge blew a o-ring and you have a leak. When your Cavalier was blowing hot air and a recharge fixed it that means it was low on freon which lets o-rings dry out, go back to the shop and have them leak test it. They use a pressurized dye to find the problem. If it's blowing it's not the cooling fan relay, they may have meant compressor relay but I'd have a leak test done first it's not expensive and easier that chasing unknown possibilities.

Alternator charges when cold, but not when hot

Sounds like a partially shorted coil winding. When the coil gets hot the insulation at some point no longer protects the copper from the crack in the insulation. Have it checked at an electrical shop or just replace it...Good luck.

Trackers were never known for their towing ability, so te factory doesn't usually equip them with a trailer plug. Look online for a "T" connector for you truck or wire it the old fashioned way by splicing in a connector.

Engine shuts off while driving after 20 to 40min.

It sounds like a heat related fault to me,probably under the hood.Check all plugs,make sure the connectors are clean.Use a contact cleaner if any terminals look 'dodgy'.Please excuse the lingo,I'm Australian.
