The odometer is about 160,000 Kilometer and I have changed the its ATF last week.

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

Changed all bulbs and replaced fuses. lower lights off upper light on. Not sure if this is the switch or if a wiring run has gone bad. Suzuki is not been a lot of help with this vehicle.

jump start the car off it doesn't stay on long

the noise seems to be coming from the strut mount á a knocking sound

When it stops squealing the heat does fine. Except when idling in which case it blows cold air and will change to heat if u idle it up. Is thus water pump?

I did originally have the Satilite radio function on the radio. Now that I want to subscribe, I can't seem to locate it. There are no Suzuki dealers nearby, and any service department fix this?

What are the steps to removing a radiator on 2004 Suzuki xl7
I cannot get to bottom hoses. Can get pass fan.

how much would a rebuilt engine cost?

When I accelerate a low humming and vibration begins, it gets loudest around 45 to 55 MPH and decreases when almost stopped. It is shifting fine but seems to have some loss of compression?

While driving on an interstate yesterday, the digital lights on the dashboard started going dim, the fan motor on the AC slowed to just moving, then the car shut off. I could not restart and had to be towed to a dealer. WShen I called today to find out what is wrong they said the computer said it was a EGR valve not working. Doesn't make sense to me. I would guess alternator?

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

ac compressor turns not locked up; but still air does not come on.
