CAR suzuki swift 1.3 diesel 2008 (BRAKES)

This car is three weeks old, after 1400 trouble free miles I had this problem, I was traveling at 50 mph and started to slow down for traffic lights put my foot on the brake, wow nothing happening changed to 2nd this helped I was also pumping the foot brake with the hand brake also in use the car just stopped over the line,I pulled over to the hard shoulder to check the car over. The brake fluid level was ok I found no fluid leaks,I tried the foot brake with the engine switched of the foot pedal seemed ok I started the engine tried the foot it then went down as far as it would travel (it had very little resistance). I then drove the car to about 20 mph, then put the foot brake on little resistance down to the stop again but no stopping power only for a snail crossing the road not good for humans,The brake pedal seems better when the engine is not running. This car is only three weeks old with 1400 miles. Any solutions out there.

    ok here is the basics
    since you didnt say you lost fluid i am assuming you didnt.
    the master cyl can bypass without loosing fluid this could be the only place to look.
    if it were in my shop i would rep[lace the master cyl and i would test drive it in a controlled area.
    i dont understand why a pro dealer wouldnt do this?

I got a 2008 Suzuki swift rs415, and haven't driven for a week. When we unlock the swift the tailgate door wont open ( its like its still locked. can I ask why and how to fix the problem

You may have to call a dealer .Their is a manual release I think its a law .However you may cut through the carpet on the inside of the door a small hole to fit a screw driver inside to turn the latch
The access point will be at the latch handle om the inside .

How long does it take for a car at average speed to travel 44 miles in louisville ms

the formula for this is time= speed in mph divided by the distance
example 100 mph divided by 100 miles =1hour
there is no average speed as it will be set by speed restrictions so if the 100 miles was all 50 mph speed zone it would take 2 hours.

Where is the air intake sensor

2014 post ,

AIR sesnors, 1.5L something....
1.5 L E-TEC I4 (petrol) in canada swift+
OR THE M15A? (ROTW)uses real suzuki 1.5L


and other counrties have there own 1.5
like in china.

so again
1:no country stated
2:no symptoms to backup Easter egg humts
3:does know there are 2 air sensors, one flow and one temperature and some are 2 in one.

and that all this is impossible lacking

OP ignore posters posting books NOT FOR YOUR CAR
and wasting cash on same.
the maf is on the intake pipe or throttle body
if not maf the car runs only MAP baro sensor
and in the plenum or has vacuum hose to it
if it has and IAT at all it can be on air leaner
main pipe air,or on plenum,each engine is different
that was a Generic answer, based on most engines made here. in USA.

2004 Jetta sedan, 1.8 TDI, about 38000 miles, manual transmission. Always use premium gas (91 octane or above) from name-brand stations. Last serviced in Oct 2010 -- oil change, new tires, new brakes...

You use premium gas in a TDI? Run that by me again? A TDI is a diesel engine car. What don't I understand here? I'm not being a smart __s but this just does not make sense. If you have put gasoline in a TDI, DO NOT DRIVE IT. Tow it to a dealer.

What does the 15000 mile check up on the 2008 Hyundai Elantra cover?

A complete check-up of the car which should include but not be limited to:
  1. Change the oil (when was the last time you changed it?) Change the oil filter & the air filter (again, when were they changed last?)
  2. Check the coolant and brake fluid
  3. Check the brake pads - inspect all lights including turning signals (for safetys sake)
  4. Check the air pressure in the tires (including your spare tire) Check your car's alignment, this can cause uneven wear on your tires and it will believe it or not contribute to making the trip more exhausting.

Make sure you get a good rest the night/day before you depart. - if you begin to doze off dont hesitate to stop at a rest stop. Dont fight against your body, if you are tired, stop and take a 30 minute power nap, wash your face and drink a cup of coffee before you get back on the road.
Make sure you have a bottle of water in the car and plenty of good music to listen to. - Speed wise I suggest you dont travel at more than 10mph over the speed limit, traveling a little over (up to 10 mph) is tolerated by police, but I strongly sugest going 5 mph over the limit, set the cruise control and enjoy the trip without worrying about potential fines. If you do the math, the difference in time traveled is not so great:
speed limit = 70 mph (just as an example) 1300 miles @ 70 mph = 18 hours 36 minutes 1300 miles @ 75 mph = 17 hours and 20 minutes 1300 miles @ 80 mph = 16 hours 15 minutes the difference between traveling 75 or 80 is only 1 hours and 5 minutes. Not worth risking a fine for

I have a diesel suzuki swift and have a warning light come on after a few miles the car runs ok and ive had the light reset but local dealer said it might be a regasification valve ive never heard of this...

that seems to be with the hight voltage system. try to replace the wires coming to the ignition plug and a barrel before them. I had the same problem on my old care and that helped me much. The computer usually shows the error with the catalyst system - this is due to the lack of the light on one of the ignition plugs.

Loud whistling noise when travelling at higher speeds (ie above 50mph)

I had a problem with a whistling car after 50 mph and it turned out to be the front window gasket. I put silicone on the trim and problem solved.
