Question about 1992 Suzuki Sidekick

1 Answer

Suzuki Sidekick 1992 od light is blinking check engine light on

The other day it was driving and running great then as I was going 60 the ml dropped down to 10 within a minute. My foot was all the way to the ground to get it to do that. I parked let off the gas then my car died and would not start again but would turn over and if I got it at the right time would stay on. I have to keep my foot on the gas even when i switch gears. What could be the problem?

    I had the same thing happen to my 92 suzuki sidekick, it turned out the throttle position sensor went out so it wasnt telling my car to change gears.

I have a 1995 Suzuki Sidekick jx it will not drive forward but will drive in reverse. I put oil in car and the transmisson fluid is full what could be the problem

95 jx
but is it 3speed or 4 speeds.
if 3speed, the lever not really going to Drive?
if that does happen the trans is bad.
if 4sp, (see od light see od switch and P/N switch that is 4speed
as is the 2 on gears, if 4speed it has a TCM brain
the tranny brain, and we can scan, it , or more accurately a jumper
clip , and the TCM flashes out codes
is the the OD lamp flashing, yes that is the TCM begging for help.

next time post trans gear counts, as we can not guess that ever
nor engine. 95 had 2 engine choices.

the 3speed also has a filter in the pan area (above)
if packed in junk,, as they all do. it will only shift hot. or not at all.
its called a full flush, with filter. not a lame drain and fill.

Why does the overdrive light on my 1993 suzuki sidekick flash

OD flash means the 4speed, electronically shifted (TCM) is seeing an error, it has flash codes , pull them and see. what they are.

The power wire for my voltage condenser broke off?
try to be more exact. tell the exact place and wire color.
the 93 had 2 engines, 8v and 16v the latter is MPI with 4 injectors the former has 1 injector. which do you have.?
OD flash full story.

but the top #1 is, EGR main , stuck open.
aks on dah bbs. we can work the problem to the end.

I have a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick with 133000 miles on it which seems to use 1 quart of coolent every 500 miles which I can not determine the cause---oil is clean, no white exaust, no leaks -it gets driven...

dropping level where, the rad top cap neck?
or that silly side tanks, that fail. (hoses bad)
if the side expansion tank drops (it will every cool down)
and goes up hot its ok,, its doing its job.
if the exp, goes dry , the then you have a breach.

yes its going somewhere,
you do know that for a fact.
here is the list
1: to the ground.
2: to the passengers does(footwells, heater core not baypassed)
3: to the engine oil pan, milky oil
4: a/t trans same dead, milky ATF
5: rad cap bad and vacuum breaker bad, in it,
6: side exp, tanks main tube missing cracked or fell off.
7: engine is eating, bad headgasket or crecked head, etc.
