Is that easy to remove, or do I need to pull the intake manifold? I'm trying to not get really involved in this, since I'm trying to use it as my commuter (yes I hate the geo tracker that my wife bought years ago).

Geo Tracker, sounds "fun".:p: There is a disconnect at the other end of the rod, if you can get your fingers down there.

Maybe if it was 4wd, but I'm trying to not sink anymore cash into it.

The tracker is the only car to give me back pain, cuz my butt is bigger than the middle of the seat, only its not large enough to bridge across, so I end up with my back twisted which hurts like a mother after any bumps in the road.

The 6.2 rides nice (PO replaced all of the front end suspension), and actually has a better ride than the tracker. Add in the fact that I've had two accidents in the tracker (t on drivers side, and snow spin into a guardrail) I'm sick of spending more than the value of the vehicle to fix it.

So, if first gear shifts BEFORE about 18 mph, does the cable need to come out more, or go in some??

I'm a little confused.

Mine shifts out of first VERY fast, but it is smooth and OD works great.

Thanks

based on my messed up setup... it seems like it might be out some, or maybe in a little. I haven't had time to work on mine again, I'm in Albuquerque right now.

Too bad the Tracker is 2wd. Their short wheel base lets them go ANYWHERE. (Same thing as a Samurai or Sidekick right?)

Zed, if you want to go anywhere, get a blazer. Then people won't laugh so hard.
If it's shifting soft and early, take it out (toward the front).

A Tracker can't pull out a Blazer but it can climb a hill better. It's all about the point where the hill plateaus and then climbs again. Those Samurais eat the **** out of them. Also nice to have a truck you can flip back over if it does tip. If I didn't want people to laugh at me I'd think about combing my hair in the morning and I probably wouldn't wear my father in laws glasses that he stopped wearing in 1984.

Woops I posted it twice. Went back to edit and it wasn't there. I guess it was

That's it. It's like my old Mazda B2200. everyone laughs at it but it drives between the ruts the big trucks leave behind, and doesn't sink in the mud and in the Mazdas case could still carry close to a ton on a highway passing other vehicles and gas staions. Actually loaded the Mazda had terrible mileage and empty it got about what the 6.2 gets, 6.2 has more room for stuff tho.

Now that's funny. Man I love big trucks and stuff but the little stuff sure has it's place. How did the moose taste anyway. They taste like fine aged beef around here.

What did it weigh in at? I've heard that a big bull from up north can push 1200lbs.
