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.

 

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.

A rough idle, high idle, or stalling condition may develop. Our technicians tell us updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software can correct these issues.

Creaking of squeaking noises may be noted from the sway bar bushings. Our technicians tell us revised bushings are available which should correct this concern.

The battery may become discharged while driving due to a burned fusible link between the battery and the alternator. Our technicians recommend to ensure the new fusible link is correctly routed and secured upon replacement.

Our technicians tell us the transfer case binds if driven on dry roads in 4WD mode, this may result in damage to the transfer case.

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.

A squeak type noise may be noted from the top of the rack and pinion steering gear while turning the steering wheel. This is commonly caused by friction between the steering pinion shaft and its seal. Our technicians recommend to replace the pinion seal and use multi-purpose wheel bearing grease during reassembly to correct this concern.

The dome light may stay on due to a faulty door jamb switch which will require replacement.

The spot welds on the hood striker may be misaligned causing the hood not to latch properly. The correction is to install oversize washers under striker mounting bolts to secure the striker.

Erratic fuel gauge readings may be caused by additives in the fuel. Our technicians tell us an improved fuel tank sender unit is available to correct this concern.

Transmission is failing to shift betw. 3 and 4 gear, engine light is on and the dtc is P0783. Now I took the car with me to S. America before this and now no one knows here what to do....

A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.

The power steering may fail due to the drive belt coming off. This is commonly caused by a failed belt tensioner. Our technicians tell us a revised tensioner should be installed along with a new belt. Check with your local Suzuki dealer to see if the factory will pay for this repair.

A fuel odor may be noted with the source being difficult to locate. One or more of the fuel injectors may be leaking internally or externally. Our technicians tell us that revised fuel injectors are available to correct this concern.
