I changed the head gasket and now the gauges a wack

replacing valve cover gasket, leaking, and trying to find specifics for valve adjustment, video or specs. JLX sidekick sport, 4x4, automatic, vin # JS3TD21VXV4105430, thanks

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

without disconnecting the drive line, etc.

I want to tow it behind my motorhome long distance.

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 :(

the miss is at idle and doesn't appear under acceleration. You can feel it at a low rpm with little throttle preasure about 20/25 mph with no load. I you go to full throttle to pass etc the engine power is god and has no missing felt

but won't start its getting fuel but no spark has 158000 miles on it where do I start to fix the problem

I own a 1997 Suzuki Sidekick Sport JLX 1.8L. I replaced the battery and terminal clamps to fix the power loss. It turns over now but wont run. My uncle says it may be the fuel pump not working or possibly the fuel shut off if it has one.

i need to replace the expansion valve and the evaporator core

This occurs while I am driving. The brake pedal becomes stiff and I am unable to depress it all. Brakes are A.B.S.

How to tighten a loose outside rearview mirror?

Where are the bolts and how to access?

need to do timing chain to do a head gasket? thanks
