Suzuki Sidekick QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Happened while driving on the freeway. Now cable won't stay connected to plug.
Set the timing via timing light and goofy wire in the monitor coupler. The idle is supposed to be 800 flat but when I crank the idle screw to get 800 it stalls out. Engine runs smooth and quiet at 2K rpm. The number 4 piston was burnt on the old engine. I'm going to cut the cat out. And looking for a new fuel filter. But I'm stumped.
Got a sidekick. No battery in it to use as reference. Need to know which cable set is positive and negative. Ground cable only goes to one side, but some cars that is on the negative terminal.
It's the upper mounting bolt for the starter and it's just hanging by one bolt and I don't know the size of the bolt
Never reads current fuel level
Every now and again it happens while I'm driving. All four locks will rapidly lock and unlock, or sometimes just lock, on their own.
That's stressful enough, but it also happens when my car is off. Like when I'm sleeping or at work. I'll go to my car to find all four doors unlocked. I'm sure it's electrical, but further advice would be great.
Please and thanks.
I have checked the starter the alternator and the terminals my ignition switch is messed up so I ran a starter button on it I have checked that to and I still can't find the problem can anyone help ?
It dies when the throttle is pushed down.
1.6 engine 4wd 4 door
radio plays wipers work but wont start clean egr system clean tps checked all wires going to battery alt. and starter
When I first got to it I jumped it to get it started I tested voltage meter on the battery and the alternator was charging is reading about 14.77 and then took the jumper cables off turn the car off and the battery held at around 13+That wind tried to start on it's own nothing except a little bit of a burning smell reconnected the jumper cables and it fired right up again so come through that I gathered that the battery was good I'll change it was good and the stars good men between it's keeping it from starting on its own and I don't know what that is I assume at some kind a relay or something I don't know for sure hope somebody can help
without disconnecting the drive line, etc.
I want to tow it behind my motorhome long distance.
I changed the power steering pump but still have the whine. The sound increases with engine speed from idle and up. Still noisy while driving. Engine has 177500 miles. Any help?
Starts very well, runs very smooth at idle.
have spark, gas goes to the cylinds, compression is good what next
All doors, incl. the back swing gate door, fail to operate in damn cold temps....(I live in Alaska). If I manage to get one open, it wont latch closed---the latch mechanism is frozen. If I am lucky enough to get in, and start the car to warm it up, it will eventually thaw and operate. Grrr! How frustrating! No, I do not have a garage :(
