2002 Suzuki XL-7 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My lights turn on by themselves at night even when the car is turned off.
When you start it takes a while to accelerate and won't pass 30 mph unless you press on the gas pedal hard.
I took my Suzuki XL-7 out for a short drive this afternoon then parked it for lunch. I came out 45 minutes later and started it up, but it ran *very* rough for about 10 seconds then quit. I started it again but had to keep pressing the gas pedal to keep it running, and even then it ran very rough again and died after about 6-8 seconds. I could not get it started again after that. It cranks fine, so the battery and starter are doing their job, but the engine (V6) just won't fire up. It has never done this before and there was no indication prior to this that anything was going wrong. I spoke with an ex-mechanic at Auto Zone who said it could be anything from an ICV or ECV, to an EGR valve, to vaccum, to fuel pump and/or filter, and more. I suspect I should start with the easiest thing and work my way through diagnosing the hardest component, but I am not sure where to begin or how to check any of these things. I checked for loose hoses and wiring--none of that. Any help would be much appreciated!
this started when the belts were loose and making noise. The noise has resolved, but even after the car is warmed up there is cold air blowing until you start to drive. If you come to a stop sign it blows cold again. Thanks
car pulls hard right in 4wd & has blinking 4wd lite...takes 2wd ~1min to shift out and back to 2wd...also can smell like burning oil but all levels seem good and smell goes away in 2wd
I seen pictures of what it looks like and sounds like its at the rear of drivers side of engine but I don't see anything like the pics, can you send a picture of its location?
There is a humming noise or a swooshing noise coming from the front of the car it sounds like. It happens when I push the gas pedal. Then it stops after I let off of the gas pedal. What could it be?
