Your GEO Tracker makes a noise in reverse in the engine no brakes in use sometimes going forward?

Check the GEO Trackers transmission fluid. The fluid could be low, or the fluid could show metal parts indicating a transmission problem causing the noise.

yes they do have abs brakes

It probally is the transmission or your brakes could be slipping.

my 2002 never has ...I know there is a "height sensor-proportioning valve" located above the rear axle which should prevent the rear brakes from locking... when you brake the weight of your Tracker goes forward and the rear actually lifts... this device lessens the pressure to the rear brakes momentarily so they don't lock...

warped brake discs can cause your brakes to grab in reverse. Hope this helps.

To put drum brakes back together on a 01 Tracker, put together drum brakes by the edges. Spray with penetrating oil. Finally, tighten the bolts and lug nuts.รŠ

only thing i know that will make brkes grind, is worn out brakesmaybe have em checked at a different mechanic

Well when you slam the brakes on a bike, you move forward because the bike wheels will stop and force will push you forward.

not a problem, bring it over Saturday and we will do it then.

It is your momentum of moving forward that has to be overcome before your brakes can bring the bicycle to a stop.

This depends entirely what type of car this is but: There is a serious failure of brakes or other safety equipment.

Drum brakes on modern vehicles have self adjusters. They adjust automatically when you stop while driving in reverse. You should always clean and inspect the self adjusting components when replacing the brake shoes, as they sometimes get gummed up with rust and brake dust. Sometimes you have to stop several times in reverse to get them adjusted completely.

It is possible for the brakes to lock up on a 2000 Chevy Venture when in reverse because the brakes are not working properly. Perhaps the brake pads need to be changed.

Frozen caliper? if disc brakes Broken or disconnect return spring if drum brakes? Brakes not adjusted properly? Parking brake cable frozen and not releasing?

No but it can reverse. The RTR comes with an esc that brakes from forward then a fixed time later reverses. This is good for racing as the delay is almost enough to bring the car down from full speed forward to stop before reverse cuts in. This means you can slow the car for any corner and be back on the power to exit the corner.

inspection determine what is bad. replace what is bad. bleed system. test brakes. change? how depends on what is bad. no predicting that.

Carefully drive in reverse while Spiking (agressively hitting) your brakes in intervals. Do this a few times and then drive forward, you should feel the difference in the amount of brake peddle you are now using. Repeat as necessary to fully adjust.

Because you are decelerating sharply

No it is not normal. I am not a mechanic but whenever my brakes make a clicking sound or poping sound, I think there might be something loose or stuck in the brakes. The first thing I would do is elimante other noise sources such as ball joints, etc. Then I would have someone walk beside the vehicle while I reversed to pinpoint if the noise is from the rear or front. Chances are it is the rear brakes if they are drum brakes. Sometimes, it is also a sticking brake shoe that is okay when the wheel goes forward but gets caught for a second when the wheel goes in reverse. My advice is that if you have not worked on brakes before, see a mechanic. An adjustment might be all you need.

When airplanes fly, the exhaust gasses from jet engines go behind the engine and push the airplane forward. When the airplanes land on the runway, the directions of the exhaust gas from the engine is changed so it pushes forward. Instead of making the plane go forward, it starts trying to make the plane go into reverse. As a result, it slows down the airplane. That slows down the airplane much faster than just using the brakes would.

My guess is your brakes might need some work. It all depends on what kind of noise you're talking about, though.

When the brake pads are worn the rivets will actually touch the brake rotor when the brakes are applied. The brakes should be changed immediately.
