Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Chevrolet Tracker Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 042007

(reported on)

Tracker 2.0L 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I have a 2001 Chev Tracker 2.0 liter 4 cylinder standard transmission 4X4 part time 4 wheel drive. The vehicle has approximately 90,000 kilometers on it.

About six months ago a noise started in the (I think ) front end that seems to be related to wheel revolution. The first mechanic said it seemed like it was the transfer case when they tested it up on the hoist and engaged 4 wheel drive (now the front wheels were turning).

A transmission shop road tested the vehicle and said the noise was too dry for a transmission or transfer case problem. They thought it might be a wheel bearing problem. They said to wait for the noise to get louder and then take it in.

The noise has not gotten any louder.

All fluid levels are full.

The noise starts to get pronounced at 60 KPH and reaches a peak at about 100-110 KPH.

Any history of problems with front end, wheel bearings, CV joints front axle, etc. in the Tracker that would cause this noise ?
