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.

Never reads current fuel level

I thought maybe miss fire but I did a complete tune up. but engine is still shaking.

its got an standard transmission ,engine is a four cylider 1.6lt

it will turn over but wont start seems like it is not getting fuel. changed fuel pump still dont work

gaskets need replacing on the harmonic balancer. It is leaking oil. Problem is can not get the bolt out, we know if we break the bolt we have to pull the engine. Of couse don't want to do that. How do you get the bolt out? Have any ideas?

early ths week I had changed my cap and rotor kit, but I put the wires in the wrong sequence. I was told by Suzuki that the firing sequence is 1342 but Im not sure where the first plug should be placed. Currently I have attempted to put the plugs in an find that the engine is running very hard and a sugniffacant amount of power is lost as well. I have a leak in the from the pipe from the engine just before the pipe cnnects to the catilic converter. Can the power loss be from the leak in the exhause or is it the wrong firing sequence for the spark plugs? Please help...

I am told the gas tank has to be removed to replace the fuel pump with labor charges much higher than your estimate.

Thank You
