    Hello again. Been ill - had a heart attack in Dec 1st ! Still alive with a STENT ! I wanted to ask you about Leaf Spring Bushings on my '90 Tracker Lsi.
    When I turn coming out of being parked in my driveway, I hear and feel "Crunchings" and groans from the suspension.
    Could my Leaf Spring Bushings be worn out ? Broken ? Have you ever replaced them in a Tracker ? Would they be tack welded in place.

    I have an 12 ton Hydraulic Press from Harbor Freight and could maybe replace the Bushings.

    What is you feeling about the Bushings ?

    Hello - it has been a while !
    Haven't done much - wife got Cancer, did Chemo - is OK now (?).
    I had a heart attack - lived - taking things easy.
    Want to ask about windshield pissers on my 1990 Tracker LSI.
    Mine are worn out. Squirt in thick stream like an old man with swollen prostate !
    Looked on e-bay - some for sale.
    Ever changed out the nozzles ? Are they special or can I use 'standard' nozzles ?
    Never had to fix windshield washer nozzles before !

    Hello.
    Haven't been here for a couple of weeks because my Computer Crashed.
    I had to buy a NEW hard Drive and then reload Windows.
    Lost ALL of my Usernames and Passwords.
    You had given me your AOL e-mail address....was it crvett69@AOL.com ?
    (from memory).

    My '90 Geo Tracker is working nicely now.
    Put in the standard 180 Thermostat.
    Someone had put in a 195 thermostat !

    I wanted to ask you about the suspension.
    Mine creaks and groans when turning sharply or going over uneven terrain
    (my gravel driveway on an incline).
    I am supposing that the noise is due to the attachment points of the
    suspension needing lubrication.
    Any comment on what could be causing the crunch/groan noise ?

    is it using any water? is the shroud still on it? should be able to determine if fan is on the right way? radiator might have plugged tubes or fins but then it usually overheats more the faster you go but you can blow the fins out and see how the tubes look. if you need a new one you can get one off e-bay for under $70

    Haven't been able to get to the Chat Room when you're there.

    Something is wrong with the cooling system of my '90 Tracker.

    My wife and son drove over to Coeur d'Alene and it worked fine.
    Then when driving around in the urban areas it overheated.

    Works fine when going 40 and faster (air moving thru radiator), but
    gets hot when it has to rely on the fan.

    I replaced the Fan Clutch as you know and my wife could hear it
    working, but doesn't keep the engine cool at low speeds.

    I don't think I put the Fan on backwards, but maybe someone else did
    before I bought it !

    I am wondering if the Thermostat is not opening enough (bad ?).
    They usually fail open, but maybe not this one.

    I should also do a flush (Backwards flush) to clean out the tubes.

    If all that fails then what ? Can't be much else - the cooling system is
    rather simple.
