1990 Suzuki Sidekick Problems

Engine Oil Leak From Front Crankshaft Seal

An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

The Throttle Position Sensor May Fail

A hesitation on acceleration may be caused by a failing throttle position sensor (TPS). If the problem is confirmed to be a failed TPS replacement of the failed sensor will be required.

 

Whine type noise from automatic transmission

A whine type noise may be noted from the automatic transmission at speeds above 50mph. Our technicians tell the that transmission dis-assembly is required to replace the components causing the noise with revised parts.
