1996 Geo Tracker Problems

Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal

An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

Check Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Replace spark plugs every 30,000 miles

The spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles and the spark plug wires checked for hot spots and cracks.
