EGR Valve (I'll try to upload some pics of this tomorrow.)

I'll first suggest making sure that you really need to replace this valve, mainly because it's very expense and non-returnable, and secondly, it's a pain-in-the-neck to change (it's not difficult, but tedious). Use a OBD-II reader to determine if the valve if faulty or go to a reliable mechanic.

The Job ...

If you find your air filter box (it should say Suzuki and be roughly behind the passenger side headlamp) follow the air intake line until you come to the fuel injector system (it's cylinder shaped and silver). Just behind that you should see a small six pronged plug and that is plugged into the EGR valve. Remove this by pushing the little tab on the plug and pulling gently. Then, there are two bolts facing toward the firewall that hold the valve in place. If I remember correctly they are 12mm. You probably won't be able to use a socket due to a bracket near the valve, but an open-end, or box-end wrench will do (that's what I used). Remove the bolts and using a hammer tap the old valve out. The gasket will be sticky, which is why the hammer is necessary. Try to get as much of the old gasket off as you can. A Dremel tool is very useful for this but be careful not to score the injector system or any lines or wires nearby. Then basically do the reverse to install the new valve. Put the bolts through the valve and the new gasket and tighten. Plug the six-prong plug back in and you're ready to go. You may want to disconnect the battery for a few seconds just to erase and pesky Service Engine messages which will still show up after the install, or if you have the OBD-II reader, you can use it to erase them. The Haynes manual for Tracker/Vitara is helpful if you have it, if not, I'll try to get pics up A.S.A.P.

There can be several pulleys on that vehicle and they are all driven by a belt on the front of the engine. Need to know which one you are looking for.

User Avatar

sorry to have to tell you this but the bearings are part of the wheel hub and sealed within. you need to change the entire hub. $$$$$$$

User Avatar

If you are referring to the front bearings, you have to buy a complete hub assembly.

use an impact and it will break the bolt lose. You will have to mod or buy a tool to torque it down to spec

WOW! Wish I could help you with this one but I didn't even know Chevy had rear bearings on rear wheel drive trucks.

You can change the serpentine belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. When the tensioner pulley is loose and the serpentine belt will become loose. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.

If you don't have the tools and/or know-how, it could be very difficult.

Being surprised my 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara (same as Tracker) had a drain plug for the transmission. I just change the fluid, not the filter or gasket.

User Avatar

Are you talking about the "idler pulley"? They are quite simple to change. Loosen the serpentine belt by using a socket on the center of the tensioner pulley, slide the belt off the idler pulley, use a socket to pull the center bolt of the idler pulley and replace the pulley with a new one.
