    Bex: I wanted to post a series of pictures of a 2 door sectioning job I did recently and some hard top brackets I found and also made up. My IT person says I've reached my limit to post pictures. Can you help me as moderator? Regards, Angus Murray

    hello, after looking at some of your advise I need some.
    I have a 98 sidekick,2wh dr, 65k miles, maybe in an accident,[repainted, maybe a new pass side ft. fender], undersides look great, ac,no power steering,5 speed.
    we tow this with our rv, have a quality tow bar,and the strangest thing happens when we take left or right turns when towing. the sidekick upon the turn to straight starts to go left then right [front wheels], with very violent action until we stop. we have had an alignment, camber bolt on dr. side set.,new tires on all 4, 23psi, standard size/pressure, seems the steering box has been adjusted, don't know if too lose/tight ,new struts, once we pull off from a slow start and turn everything works fine.why would the front wheels start to turn l/r so radically at a slow speed and not center themselves?

    Which fuses is he talking about? Frankly, it sounds like your mechanic is not tremendously familiar with the car. In any event, are you saying that the 91 ECU blew fuses, or that the 91 ECU is running the car?? I think if you want to continue this, we should go to 'private messages' rather than through visitors messages.....

    Hey my mechanic just informed me that besides replacing the ecm there were also fuses blown that was replaced. He said before trying to get it towed try and checking the fuses under the dash. If they are blown, then the culprit would be a ground issue? also he has my 94 ecm still. i am getting it back and going to attempt to fix it using mouser electronic parts. until i get it fixed, and if i can get the car back on the road, can i just keep using the 91 ecm for now? it was working fine with no engine codes

    Dang Bex! I did not get this info you gave me until just now. I gave the mechanic the other ecm and he installed it. Worked for about 6 hours and blew it. My car is currently in the middle of down town lombard lol. Okay i will tell him to give me back my old one and see what i can do. It looked like one of those black cylinder looking things you mentioned got burned up. He showed me it.
    Thanks for the heads up!

    The ECU transfer will not work - the models change, along with sensors and circuits. There are 3 capacitors that we all have had to change out of the 1989-1995 ECU's as they tend to leak or dry up. It's a $5 fix, and any computer geek can solder them in for you, clean up your circuit board, etc. Remove your 94 ECU and open it up - you will see 3 capacitors sticking up, normally black with an X on the top - they may or may not say Rubycon on them. The caps are the C101, C103 and the C111 locations.
    c111 100uf@63v
    647-UPW1J101MPD6

    c103 47uf@63v .
    647-UVZ1J470MED

    c101 22uf@50v
    647-UPW1J220MED

    The above reference numbers are the reference numbers at Mouser Electronics - Electronic Components Distributor

    Edit: The caliper swap probably won't work - the parts catalog gives the calipers for the 94 vs the 91 a different part number.....

    Hey bex i have a few parts im using from a 91 geo tracker 2x4 auto tbi 8v into a 94 4x4 auto tbi 8v. I was considering using the front brake calipers, and the ecm. My ecm on my 94 went out (or thats what my mechanic thinks). it has no spark, fuel, and also no signal to sensors. also my driver front caliper is making noise (sounds like guide pin is rubbing inside of caliper) and i wanted to swap calipers. is this okay?

    hey bex,
    my gf's tracker is rubbing on front bumper. we are getting it painted soon and first want to lift it somewhat to stop the rubbing. i saw a few cheap 2 inch coil spacer lifts on ebay and was considering buying them. any info on them? we were looking at the aluminum spacers vs. polyurethane spacers. is there one better than the other? do they make noises/squeaking noises. fyi the lift is only for show, my gf is a good safe driver who does not off road or need any lift besides for clearance.
    vehicle specs: 92 4x4 automatic tracker

    Sorry for butting in..but I had a friend that had that lower pulley issue...bolt was loose, complete mess up the end of the crank..key-way gone..wow..she needed a new crank to fix it...or weld the pulley on the end of the crankshaft(which I would't do)...another tracked went to the scrap yard..after I took my parts of course..
