why does my tracker feel like its always shifting on highway


Asked by Feb 12, 2012 at 08:04 PM about the 1994 Geo Tracker

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 94 geo tracker and on the highway the car seems like it is always shifting. like a constant back and forth surge. its not shifting because it does this while driving on flat road with no throttle movement, and even going up a hill it feels like it is shifting back and forth. hard to explain besides like a high idle to normal idle (just enough to feel like it is shifting) havent counted the timing of this but about every 20-25 seconds it does it.
