They're often easy to notice. 1996 Geo Tracker transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

Questions About 1996 Geo Tracker’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Geo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Geo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Tracker is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Tracker transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Geo Tracker transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Geo. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
