IF a 2000 Chevy Tracker engine shut off while driving what could be the problem?
According to my mechanic, it has something to do with the cam shaft position sensor overheating.
I had this problem with my 2001 Tracker, 2.0 L DOHC engine. The problem was caused by the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor. It wasn't sending the right signal when it got hot. Info on the web said a guy doused it with water after it got hot enough to affect the engine and it started right up. Replacement was about $180 for the part. Easy install. Problem solved.
In order to tell you that you would have to describe the noise and what the car is doing when the noise is made. Are you idling, driving, just turned the AC on? What is occurring and what is the noise? Idling and sounds worse when AC is on. Sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine. Vehicle has 120k miles
I recently swap 1996 geo/Chevy tracker engine with a 1996 suzuki engine and it worked. you have to make sure they both have G16A stamped on both engines. you MAY have to swap intake and exhaust manifold, flywheel, alternator bracket, and a few other things. just make sure they are the same engine (G16A)
NO. There conclusion was that it is a NORMAL problem with the 6.0L and 5.3L engines and that it will not do any HARM are cause a early engine problem as long as you let the engine idle and warm up to running temperature before driving. The noise that you hear are the PISTONS slapping in the cylinders when engine is cold. As the engine warms up the piston expand and tighten up in the…
The light is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. You need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. This will retrieve the code that has been set by the ECU, (computer). This code will tell you what part is being effected. A skilled technician can then know where to start looking for the problem.
