Question about 1999 Suzuki Esteem
Ok, so I go out to go to the store one day and the car is acting funny. Like it has no get up and go, just weak. I put her in drive and she crawled. I had to go down the road to turn around to go home and I had her floored and she was creeping.
Next morning, she's fine. Husband says, hooray!
I go out shopping one day and I go to get in the car and whenever I go to back up she freezes. I turn her on and she spudders and shudders like a car that is idling bad and if you dont rev. it at a stop it will die out.
Next day, it's fine. Husband says, hooray!
Then one afternoon I get a call from him saying to send a tow truck. Husband isnt saying hooray anymore.
We were told it was the catalitic converter. He let a neighbor punch it out. Not fixed. Then he let's the same neighbor (who btw couldnt find the spark plugs and refused to listen when I showed him where they were) change the spark plugs, still not fixed.
We've been told it could be both o2 sensors need changing. Dirty EGR valve. Clogged fuel injector.....
Any help here?
It might be that your spark plug wires are leaking current. The current that is supposed to go to your plug is going to the engine block or other wires. Start your car and open the hood in a dark place and look for little sparks coming from the outside of your wires. Replace if you see any.
O2 sensors are going to set off your trouble light if they are giving you trouble. So will a dirty EGR valve (after fifty miles of dirtiness).
