I have a buddy whos tracker crapped out. The shop says that it tossed a timing belt and the engine is shot. I thought by now Chev would have been using a non-interference engine? Is this the case, is the shop feeding him a line of shit?

I know that the 1.6 had a Timing BELT and the 2.0 has a timing CHAIN

Being a interferance or not I DON"T KNOW.

You sure the 2.0 has a chain? I have a 93 two door Tracker 4x4
and I replaced the timing belt around 80,000 miles, which it has
107,000 now, but Im either selling it this week or trading it for a 2000
2 door Tracker 4x4 with the 2.0 engine. If the 2.0 has a chain, that
would be better. Anyone here have a 2.0 engine and does it seem to
be as good or better than the 1.6 engine? My Tracker has been
very reliable. :smile:

How many miles does your Tracker have?
Did it do any damage to your engine since the
chain broke?

So your 99 Tracker is a 4x4? How is it in snow and off road?
You have a nice Tracker there.

Great in the snow(but I need new tires)
Never really been "off-road" but in the gravel, dirt and mud it's great too.
(again rather not do it cause I need new tires) :banghead:

I got my 2000 Tracker. Its a white 4x4. There is a big difference
from the 93 I had. The new one drives better, much more quiet,
and better ride. The 2.0 is alot quicker also than the 93 was too.
One thing I never liked about the 93 was that wind would blow it quite
a bit on the road. Cant even hear any wind noise in the new one.

I hope this reliable like my 93 was.

I have a question, how many gallons is the fuel tank on the newer
Trackers? :)
