My check engine light just came on. It is code P1442. Just wondering if someone could shed some light onto this. Also, My car has been running a little hotter than usual. I had to replace my heater core and water pump this past winter. It fixed the problem with running hot, but it recently just started to start happening again.
Losing oil from the intake gasket. Also, the coolant tube right below the intake on the passenger side leaks.
Doesen't matter if I have a load on or not. Whan I accelerate ( doesn't have to be a heavy foot ). I get a slerping / sucking sound at 1/2 sec intervals and engine bucks. Won't stop until I go below 2000rpm. Same noise you get whon drinking with a straw and you get to the bottom. Sound is in engine compartment right behind my toes left foot

I have a 2009 Honda Fit Sport. I never had any problems since I've owned the car for a little over two years. I only drive it back and forth to work and have about 12K miles on it in two years. I went on vacation and left the car parked in my garage for a week. I've done this before without incident. This time the car would not start and it turned out to be a weak (but not dead) battery. A jump start was all it needed, but I brought it to the dealer anyway to get it checked out and after testing it they said the battery was "weak" and replaced it under warranty. After searching it out on the Internet I found that premature dead/weak batteries are fairly common, especially for this year. Has any one else experienced this?
Is it a DIY replacement?
I removed the radio fuse as a temp fix but it didn't help my battery was still dead the next morning.I can sometimes hear a weird clicking noise from the dash then the radio will come on with no key in the ignition.I also noticed using my keyless entry will result in my interior lights not shutting off.
Recently replaced transmission sensor. With the key in the on position (not started)the battery light is on so I don't think its the alternator. The car started slowly then after work tried not to start at all. One battery terminal had corrosion that cleaned up nicely. Now it starts easier but does have hesitation at start and the driver's air bag light came on. So far runs fine. This car is breaking me with repairs, I will never buy another Suzuki. Any ideas on what I should check next?
When picked up it made a huge cloud of smoke under the hood. Mechanic retrived it and messed with it for several days. Now they say the AC is causing the problem and we need a new compressor. This AM the bettery light came on and it made a strong electrical fire smell after I had the deforst on . Went off after about 5 minutes. I think this AC thing is a crock, how would a mechanical system like that be causing the problem? I think it's being overloaded by the fan and other accessories and the alternator they put in is faulty or ? Bad voltage regulator? Bad ground? FYI We replaced the battery this winter with a slightly smaller one we had from a car we junked, but it was nearly new and worked fine all winter. AC was OK last time I checked, not running it except when I forget about the deforst....
Saturday, my pulley for my power steering comes off while I was driving. Should I be suspicious of foul play?
