    Hey Fordem, I was wondering if you could provide a bit more information to help me out about my suspension on my 93 Geo Tracker 4x4. I’m reading this thread where you give some great info:

    I’m having the same issue that my Geo is super rough. I drive both on and off road. My question is: how do I know the suspension is still doing it’s job and the rough ride is just ‘normal’ rough. The previous owner lifted this Tracker in the past slightly. How would I evaluate if the shocks should be replaced?

    Fordem can you change a character in my heading of a post?
    "What did you do to your Esteem/Boleno today/", it should have a question mark at the end, not a slash. Would you be so kind and change it, about four down in the Esteem forum?

    Thanks Fordem. Rhinoman PMed me saying he passed my problem along to you. I could not get on site no matter what was tried. A long shot was reaching someone to help and it worked. I was going nuts. Thank you for whatever you did for it was easy to get on and reset PW.

    What does it take to get off my back...he has with me ever sense he couldn't tolerate me putting a locker in this 2wd. Surly you two can see that its that is so petty...she going to have the last word no matter what and she is the first one to tell somebody they don't know what there talking about. I don't know how the pecking order works on one of these forums but you must be able to understand why people get a little pissed off. You don't need to respond and I do see what a bad spot you mods are in but just saying!!!

    I suspect that after a good start, when the thermostat opens and the hot coolant passes by the various sensors, the signals are sent to the ECM and then other signals are sent back to the various solenoid valves or to the Emission controls and then I get the problem..I also suspect that it is vacuum related due to the fact that I can put a good driving load on the car and it seems to work fine and develop good power... until I have to put the clutch in or slow and stop at a stop sign and then it goes back to an idle condition (ie. no strong vacuum, no high RPM) and it dies. I have noticed that the Vapor Canister does NOT have the Canister Purge solenoid downstream in the is missing. And the owner before me did not replace the Catalytic too is missing...however this is a '90 Tracker and it has no sensor down at the Catalytic Converter...according to the book.

    90 Tracker Dies when Thermostat Opens - HELP - Who can solve the mystery?

    Hi Fordem, you helped me before and seemed to know right where to look ...maybe you or someone you know could help me with this problem. Thanks

    '90 Tracker, 8V, 5speed, Starts on 1st try every time, idle is perfect (1550 then drops to 800), BUT when thermostat opens (about 2.5-3min after start) then the idle gets rough, and if left in idle condition, the car will sputter and die. BUT If you drive out and put a load on the car and drive it consistently, you detect NO PROBLEM...until you come to a stop sign, and the car returns to idle...then it dies and will not start again until it cools to a closed thermostat condition (10-15min. later).
