    I have recently bought a 1994 Sidekick 1.6, 5 speed manual 4x4. I'm looking for a brush/bumper guard to put on the front, and for function, not just looks. If anyone knows any manufacturers and tips/tricks to installing one I'd love to hear. If there is any custom brackets that are needed or...

    I’m interested in knowing if anyone has gone past that 300k mark with original engine and transmission. I definitely have some flaws here and there with some loss of power in first gear at a certain throttle position (if I step further on the throttle it clears the loss of power and drives...

    I had a mechanic look at my 1991 Sidekick, because it was surging on warm idle. He figured out that it was either the thermal sensor or the MAP sensor. I have the thermal sensor on order, but the MAP sensor was really expensive. The cheapest price I found was 445.00 CAD, because it has to be...

    The power steering pump and pulley have crapped out in my 94, and we can’t find a new part that will have both. There is someone on fb that was a 96 model that should have both. Would the 96 model pump and pulley be compatible with my 94?

    I'm looking at my options for changing some of the styling of my 89' Sidekick with easy to do or minimal fabrication. Has anyone done a conversion or found something that can be fitted from another vehicle? Affordable options seem limited for direct replacement. Do Ford ranger lights fit?

    Hello all. I just got my first tracker a month ago and was super stoked. It is a 1994 2 door convertible manual. Unfortunately last week it started losing power on hills and so I stopped driving it and now it wouldn’t drive at all. I had my dad look at it and he discovered that it was the...

    I got a 94 sidekick. An on the front behind where the licence plate would be closer to the passenger side, there is fairly large bolt. Is it possible to mount a hook or other recovery tool to it.

    So my sidekick started losing a lot of coolant last month and I've spent ages trying to find the source of the leak. After Pressure testing and looking for trails with a UV dye I decided to remove my engine to inspect the rear of the block. I believe I have finally found the source of the leak...
