Question about 2003 Suzuki Vitara

1 Answer

Oil light coming on at certain times


You replied to a comment I posted here today. Thank you for the reply. My comment now is: I'm planning to go to FL, from Atlanta (about 400 miles) and of course planning to change oil/filter before hitting the road. Would that be too risky?

Have it done Oil & filter) a.s.a.p. to make sure light goes out.If it doesn't , change the sender or at least have a mechanic hook-up an external oil pressure gauge to confirm oil pressure is in safe range. Turn stereo off once in a while & listen for any new, louder tapping or different noises from engine. if that happens, shut it off right away. My guess is your o.k. but let's err on the side of caution. Check oil level & top up as needed.

Hi Thomasg Colton Jr I'm in Australia its a 1999 auto kia sportage

Hi Brian

You need to answer in the original post as a COMMENT to Mr Colton's reply to you. If you do it that way, Thomas Colton Jr will get a notification that he has a reply to answer. Your way of making a reply does not work as Fixya gets 7 million enquiries a year, so it is impossible for one person to see even a fraction of them.

Your post is here, so COMMENT to him direct.

Ignition fires too early, kicks back when trying to start

Hi Jerry:
Make, year, and model with engine info might assist.
Back to basics, the first thing I'd do would be to dig out the timing light and check to spec's.
If you reply as a comment to this post with more info I'll try to help.

On my 1993Volvo 850 GLT the serpentine belt keeps coming off. How do I fix it.

Hi Lafayette:
- I have to ask the most basic question first........are you installing it so that the ridges in the belt are fitting into the grooves in the pulleys?
- Next, When the belt is installed, is the tensioner holding it snug?
- Possible problem could be that the belt is too long (not the right one)
- Possible problem could be that the tensioner is not functioning.
Time for some checking.
Please reply as a comment to this post if you want me to get your reply.
