SOURCE: cavalier dies

you need to find the fuel pressure release around the fuel rail press the little tab when the car dies. If there is no fuel coming out from that point, your fuel pump is going.

If you run the engine at idle you will see the tensioner pulley move, the movement will be slight but steady.

Sounds like you need a fuel pump. If its the original with114,000 miles then replace it.

SOURCE: Engine pinning when accelerating only on cold Suzuki Baleno

Carbon build up on pistons raises engine compression.This is normal.Go up one grade on gas and/or put some fuel additive.If this doesnt solve it,have timing belt/chain inspected may need replaced

SOURCE: Is valve adjustment a part of normal maitenance on Suzuki Esteem

When you hear some tapping, that's why you need -valve adjustments. At 137,000miles you probably need more than that to continue your trouble-free drives.

I'm working on a 2000 suzuki esteem 4 door car it acts like its not getting enough fuel but has good fuel pressure


The air filter is okay?
Personally, I would look at the MAF sensor - try disconnecting the electrical connector and driving the car. A warning light will appear on your dashboard, yes .. but if the car behaves as it should that points towards a faulty maf sensor.

Also try removing and cleaning your EGR valve

Here's a couple of links that may help:

problems with egr valve and catalytic converter for suzuki esteem 98


You can also try disconnecting the O2 sensor - see what the car runs like.

My advice would be to NOT follow all the advice you get. Try things yourself. Your car runs ... but somewhere in the MAF sensor- EGR valve - O2 sensor there's a glitch. Do the simple things first - disconnect the MAF, clean the EGR ..

Engine runs good on the road,when slowing down engine dies wnen trying to idle. worsr when air is op


You said it is worse when the air is on? It is probably the ad compressor trying to lock down. The drive bearings on the ac compressor are probably almost shot causing a heavy drag on the engine

A friend of mine had a Suzuki and we found his fuses behind the glove box (whole dang thing slides right out if you hold two "buttons" down on both sides). Maybe the same applies to you? Good luck and cheers...

2000 Suzuki Esteem (1.8) Fuel System


No SYMPTOMS stated, (sadly)
the J18 engines, twin cam, chain drive cam, nice motor.
an under stroked, J20. it is.. and share most parts.

alldata.com covers it.... and all cars... mostly.
for sure esteems (used books real off Ebay, if lucky, do a watch on ebay)?
and for sure Suzuki, the FSM is $4 to read. and posted 100 time here. (more ) this the real deal, (McCoy)
https://suzukipitstopplus.com/Products/1182-2000-esteem-service-manual.aspx

the filter, and pump , no need to replace pump unless
it has 12vdc to IT CRANKING< and filter is new. AND, pressure is out of spec. (see spec, below)
a gauge is $20 and way more easy to use than a bath in gasoline
for sure.and a $10 voltmeter from walfart.

now the Esteem secret (just in CASE)
"Remove rear seat cushion, rear right seat back, right side sill scuff, right front partition trim and right rear door opening trim."
bingo, a secret access port.

now the spec.
31-37 ?idle PSI
this is the fuel pressure at the rail, at idle.
cranking is 6 PSI more
driving up hill, wide open throttle, pressure rises to 3- 6psi more that idle. (near)
if pressure is low, check for 12vdc to pump, first.
then make sure the FPR works.
they can stick open closed or jam. and it must work right. or fueling will be ALL wrong. (cars this old FPR love to fail)
this engine ECU has program revision (flash) that causes
pump to not run key on, (read TSBs on same at suzuki...)

so, crank it and check pressure cranking if not starting?
or if it does start (you never said) then check at idle
and WOT. the PSI ( then gun throttle see pressure jump way higher) if all this pans out, forget pump, and FPR.

did you scan the PCM yet, that be like first..
all scan tools (real) work on 2000 cars.... all do.

1999 suzuki esteem hard to start, just cranks and cranks. Runs perfect once started. Has new spark plugs oxygen sensor and cleaned injectors. Anybody know what problem is?


check to make sure the fuel pump,injectors and fuel pressure regulator don't have any internal leaks check the fuel pressure immediatlly after it is shut off and two hours later there should be at most a very slight difference
