Diagnostic test says fuel pump sender failure
The sound or drop in engine rpms doesn't happen on idle only under load. The noise sounds like a muffled grinding, maybe, but when it on the cars jerks really bad and revs drop low. If I release the gas pedal it stops and the car just cruises. I changed the spark plugged and the air intake, new air filter and ran injector cleaner in the fuel system. The oil level is good in transmission and engine. A mechanic suggested a misfire but there is no check engine light on, pluss it doesn't happen on idle. So far it seems to do it soon after starting to drive the car. I started the engine and let it worm up, drive in my subdivision for aprox 3 minutes and the noise and shaking was very bad but then subsided. It will still do it but not as bad while driving to work. One option is to drive it until it breaks down completely but I would prefer not to waste my money on a tow truck or unneeded repairs because this was not treated in time. Any advice is greatly appreciated. By the way, a friend connected a computer to the engine to see if there are any codes but none showed up.

Lights that should not burn do--door ajar, check engine light, lights that should burn do not--light on dash, stereo light. Lights inside car flicker and go off and on while driving so they have to be in the OFF position so that when you open the car door, there are no lights. Also, the fuel door hinge broke and the door flew off. I have noticed several of the same model vehicle around town without their fuel doors.
this only happens when i gas up, when i turn the key ignition stays on, like the car doesn't recognize the car is running. other times when i start the car. no problems..only when i gas up. weird...???

What causes power light to come on
I basically have 170psi across all 6 cylinders all timing chains are tight except the very bottom chain which has a little slack in it, never showed any signs of any problems and 4 days ago while driving too tn. the car just shut off I pulled over to the median looked under the hood seen nothing obvious and tried to restart it and it turned over but sounded like it jumped time and like it had no compression but it does 170psi each cylinder and all timing chains are tight except for the very bottom chain yet still won't start I have worked on cars for 35 years but never one of these suzuki's any tips and how can I check the timing to see if it's a couple of teeth out maybe or if it may just be the crank sensor I had a caddilac cts with the same symptoms sounding like it had no compression or like it jumped time and it just wasn't getting any fuel replaced fuel pump and even though it still sounded like it had no compression when it got fuel it started right up I no I have fuel but thinking it was the timing chain and needing to replace the water pump I didn't check for fire before tearing it down to replace the pump so I know I have fuel not sure on fire could that possibly be the crank sensor any addvice please.
