    yes you can open the softtop just over the driver/passenger seat. i open mine all the time. unlatch it and pull back. i rarely take my complete softtop down. I was thinking of getting a hardtop for it at some point.

    Hello I have a tracker and was in the market for a cd player for my vehicle. Right now I have the original Delco AM/Fm Cassette stereo that it came with. I am wanting to purchase a cd player but had concerns of the cd player skipping due to the fact the tracker is a bouncy type ride. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a stereo make and model that would work well in a sport utility vehicle like the Tracker.
    I appreciate any feedback or suggestions.
    Thanks so much in advance.
    Peace&kindness from the Lone Star State!

  • I have a 99 Chevy Tracker 2DR Convertible 4X4 with a 5-speed and the smaller 1.6 with 50000 miles that i just bought for $5000. I am 16 years old, and it is my first car. The tires are starting to go i will defiantly need new ones this spring. It has Uniroyal Tiger Paws on it and I am not impressed by their winter traction. I am asking to see if anyone has any suggestions on what kinda tires i should get. I have read alot of these Forums that are very supportive of the Bridgestone AT's Anyone with any input plz tell It would be appreciated.

    And also, since I am a 16 year old You always have a want for more power does anyone have any cheap ( under $500) ideas on how to boost my car from 97HP to something up in the hundreds??????

    i perfer B.F.Goodrich All-terrains. i have had them for 3 years. and they have been without a doubt the best tires i have ever bought. this year i will be replacing them, with the same make and model. i have NO problem in snow or off-roading at all with these tires

    i was wondering if anyone could give me info on replacing the seals to my soft top. i noticed some leaking h2o. i think it is mostly leaking on the soft top above my head. I also noticed leaking at the corners of the rear soft top "the big one" the leaks in the rear are only there during heavy rains. It leaks on the seams. i think i can patch that. I was toying with the idea of a hardtop.but i like to be able to drop the top whenever i like. just wondering if anyone knows of a place toi get a replacement seal withOut having to do to the dealer.

    i recently lifted my oil cap to find a sludgy, milky oil like substance. when i lifted the dipstick out it had the same sludge on it. i have a 1991 chevy tracker. does any one know how to fix this. the truck runs great! but am afraid to drive it. is this water in oil becouse it smells like gas.
  • arkainzeyearkainzeye pittsburgh paPosts: 473
    how is your coolant level. Im trying to think how water would get in your oil. unless it is a leak in your cooling system. if i was you.. i would get rid of that oil a.s.a.p/ then see if the water returns. if so, you know you have something more than just Condensation buildup. i surely would Not run the engine with it the way it is. thats asking for more problems
  • joeyrjoeyr Posts: 2
    i checked the coolant and level is fine. i changed oil, and now im going to let it run a day or so and change it again and check condition of oil coming out of engine.
    thanks for your help

    Bought 99 tracker last summer and love it. But today on the way home from work it stalled every time I took my foot off the gas and stepped on the brake. Any ideas before I have to take it to the dealer for repair or could it be bad gas or something easy.
  • arkainzeyearkainzeye pittsburgh paPosts: 473
    just wondering. how does the air filter look? is it clean? also remove and then reinstall the gas cap. i had my check engine light come on twice from just a simples thing like a gas cap. now since the idle is computer controlled. i am a little stumped. have you ever ran a good fuel injector cleaner b4? i just recently changed my fuel filter, and then ran a full can of seafoam in my tank. and wow my tracker came alive again. i also have to wonder this. what is the chances of you getting bad gas? i know this has happened to me on my bike many times! and i had to hold on the gas to keep it running..

    A couple weeks ago my 96 Tracker 2 door convertible was struck broadside by a 86 Caprice running a red light. I wasn't injured, but both airbags deployed and the passenger door is smashed in about 12" at the bottom. The frame held up well and since I recently got the car running well and bought new seat covers and top, I'd like to try and keep it for a spare vehicle. Any suggestions on how to pull out the door at the bottom. The top of the door and the window is undamaged but the top sticks out a coupe inches where it should meet the roof. I have a winch that I also bought for it (2600 lb capacity) and am wondering if that could be used for pulling out the bottom of the door. Any suggestions would be appreciated since I really hate to lose this vehicle with warm weather on the way!
  • I have a 2001 Chevy Tracker. I have a pulley on my engine that is wabbling quite a bit when the Tracker is at idle. It wont do it until the car is warmed up (bout 10 minutes) and when the throttle cable is pushed for more power the wabble goes away. It is coming from the pully just below the water pump (is very clear that this is the wabbling pulley). Unfortunately I am waiting on my Haynes manual to arrive in the mail. Does anyone know what this pully goes to? If so, is there any way to tighten it... or am I going to have to get a new part altogether? Does anyone know where I can get some good second hand parts?

    I also have the stock wheels on the car which are starting to show their age (4 years). Personally I think that they are just poor quality wheels. The laquer is starting to peel from the alloy and it is making a real mess of the wheels. Does anyone know where I can get new alloys.. factory or different model would be nice. Thanks -Brandon

    On my '01 2.0L the pulley under the water pump is the air conditioner compressor. If this is indeed what is wabbling I think you have no choice but to have someone knowledgeable with air conditioner components look at it. The pulley is integral with the compressor. It may be a bearing but it may be easier to replace it as a unit. Unfortunately I think this is an expensive part. Be sure your belt is at the correct tension. Good luck!

    The problem went away for a day now its back. when stopped at a light the engine started reving up like I was stepping on the gas but was not and car was in neutral. Now it's back to the same. Every time I step on the clutch and put it in neutral it dies.
    When slowing down in gear it's fine and runs fine when speeding up and shifting thru to fifth. Could it be, fuel filter, tps sensor, ? Have appointment at dealer on tuesday and not looking forward to it. Thanks...
  • Thanks for the reply. I had a feeling that it was the A/C compressor... but wasn't 100% sure. I looked the part up and it is looking about $560.00. Do you have any idea where I could get second hand parts for the tracker? Thanks again for the reply. -Brandon

    question you said when you pull in the clutch and put it in N it stalls. does it stall b4 you get to N? cause if so. that makes me wonder if the clutch is Not fully disengaging. and when you try to stop and idle it stalls. "if this is the case" . You have a 99 right? i do remember reading about 1999 manual tranny trackers having problems. but i think it had something to do with a gear or beaing. you might wanna do a keyword search on here and look up past posts on your year of tracker.. i know there was something about the stickshift tracker that i read about
  • I have looked into my compressor problem a bit on the net and found a few different things. I found that there was a recall on A/C compressors for the Chevy Tracker. Anyone know how to go about filing a report and maybe getting a new compressor. Info about recalls below:

    15) TSB: 01-01-38-018
    Issue Date: October 2003

    If anyone knows anything about this it would be much appreciated if you could let me know. Thanks -Brandon
