Question about 1997 Suzuki Sidekick

1 Answer

95' Suzuki Sidekick making noise

We have a suzuki sidekick and it makes this horrible noise. Its like a grinding, rattling noise coming from the passengers side, its so loud. We tried to figure out if there was a reason but we've yet to find any. We never know when its going to happen but it used to be when we'd go up a hill and if we were to put it into 4wheel/drive it would stop but that doesn't work any more. It used to happen just once now it happens like 6 or 7 times.. The noise goes away when we come to a stop. But as you get up to speed again the noise starts up again.

Does anyone know what this could be from? Or know what the problem is. And possibly how to fix it.

    I have a similar problem with my 93 sidekick.
    mine also goes away when i go in 4x4 than take it out again. till i hit a bump or turn to the right.
    i have changed the front brake pads & calipers but still a noise.
    next i will change the rotors & the check the wheel bearing or change them.
    if that does not work wood be to check the CV joint for wear.

Where to start. In the winter will a leather soft top be worse or the same for heating on my suzuki sidekick '95.

If you are asking if a soft top is worse to heat than the hard top, the answer is yes, but not that bad. They can be noisier and draftier too, and are only really fun in the summer, when they are down!

I have a 95 suzuki sidekick in which i replaced the fuel tank on... i connected everything the way it was and it will crank but wont start... i can hear the fuel pump kick on and tried to spray fuel in the...

try taking the fuel line loose at the fuel filter and see if any fuel comes out of it. if no fuel is coming from the tank before the filter more than likely have the lines reversed. also make sure that you are getting the proper pressure to the fuel rail.
