Question about 2000 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

My daughters 2003 Suzuki Swift is not shifting right when it is really cold outside. When it is warm it is not too bad. It is not engaging all the way. It is cold here now so it is doing it all the time.

I recently had the same problem with my 2000 Swift. After having the transmission rebuilt the mechanic said he had adjusted the clutch cable and instaled a different spring on the clutch to compensate for the cold making parts stiff. I haven't noticed the same problem since.

How do I fix, bad idle in suzuki swift , check light on, no codes.


the title is contradiction
" check light on, no codes."<< totally wrong
scan it one more time with a REAL scan tool this time. (there are DTC errors , or codes as you said)

what does bad idle mean? misfiring, or idle speed too low
or too high? RPM, or
surging?

say what that means please.
and more important is engine hot or cold ? failing.???? or both????
there are over 50 causes.
but can be broken down to simple physics and gauges.
1: engine bad, lost compression.
2: engine cant breath, dirty air cleaner
3: ISC stuck closed or open or just stuck. (bad idle air supply)
4: bad spark, 1 or all 4 (never had a tune in this decade.
5: cam drive, slipped (belt) causing #1 failure.
6: air fuel mix too lean, and causes rpm drop and ISC fails.
7: air fuel mix too rich and misfires.
8: egr stuck open, it misfires and ISC gives up.
9: cat clogged, engine cant breath #2 like.
10: and the vast other reasons for misfire.

we cant drive it, see it or hear it misfire, so.....????

there is a test for all 10, ask. or get car serviced.

Transmission whine when cold is not abnormal. Cold fluid does not flow as well as warm fluid, which could cause some whine.

In my daughter's 1997 Suzuki swift he turn signals quit working but the emergency flashers work. Is it a fuse and if so where is it ?


you have a bad flasher which is about the size of a "c" battery located under the dash on the driver side, no tools necessary just untwist the old one and twist in the new one , between 5 and 15 dollars

Missing hose from 1991 suzuki swift,what is it!


This is the warm air intake hose - it was probably a corrugated aluminium pipe about 2" in diameter. It's commonly called the stove pipe. Warm air from around the exhaust manifold is piped to the air filter case and used when the engine is cold to enable the fuel in the carby to atomise better. As the engine warms up, less of this pre-warmed air is needed and the valve in the air cleaner tube gradually closes off. Air then only comes from behind the headlight or the resonator box in the wheel arch. The loss of this hose won't affect warmed-up drivability at all (unless you are in a really cold climate), but performance/economy when cold or during warm-up maybe worse.

Whinning Noise when cold.


Timing belts don't while because they don't slip! Could be the water pump/alternator belt.

2001 suzuki swift - thermostat replace?


Suzuki thermostats, more often than not, tend to fail OPEN when they have been overheated - which is a good thing! If they failed shut, you would really cook the motor. Change the thermostat. Also, find the cause of the initial lack of coolant.

When starting car there is a screech/squeal until you pull off


I think that the difficulty in shifting is unrelated to the squeal. I had a '99 Swift that had belt squeal all the time first thing in the morning, and I did not want to tighten the belt too much as it is bad for the alternator and water pump bearings. However, I did figure out a way to make it *******. When the noise happened, I would make the DRLs turn off by pulling the handbrake up just one click, and the noise would immediately cease. If this works for you, then you have identified the problem. It seems as though the alternator loads up too much. Not a big deal though.
As for the shifting, check to see that your clutch cable is properly adjusted. It should not be too loose or too tight, it should be set so that there is about a 1/4 inch of play at the clutch pedal.
Good luck with your Swift, they're great little cars!
