1996 Suzuki Sidekick ProblemsHesitation Due to Failed Throttle Position Sensor
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.
The clutch pedal may suddenly fall to the floor due to a broken weld on the pedal pivot assembly. A revised clutch pedal assembly is available to correct this condition.
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.
