Very easy job, but i would recommenend taking the alt out and going to a local auto parts store and checking it to make sure it is ok or bad first then buy one

2001 suzuki esteem stalls--auto shop wants to replace the throttle body-$1925.00


Doubtful it is bad

Seek a different shop & be there,
so you can see the actual testing
or forget it

Most likely not even the problem

You can get one from a salvage yard
or online & install yourself

Don't need a shop to remove 4 bolts

1998 suzuki esteem 1.6 will not start HELP!


Having good fuel pressure is a plus (yours seems a bit high but I don't have specs) What you need to find out is if the injectors are opening and putting the fuel into the engine so it can work. Are the plugs wet with fuel or dry? Does it fire up if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking?

1998 Suzuki Esteem lost pressure and died while driving. Since then have changed battery, fuel pump and filter, and plugs. Was told plugs may not be of high enough quality to fire hot enough (?) or bad...


I am having the same problem. The garage suggested the crankshaft sensor but its an expensive part and if it doesn't work I am stuck with it. Did you get yours figured out?

No charge to battery


the starting /charging system is interrelated ....check amp draw of starter...be sure ALL grounds on engine alternator starter battery are clean and tight...also you could have a parasitic electrical leak...disconn neg side to battery and put test light in line..should be faint light for radio and computer..nothing more..if it burns bright you have something drawing power when system is off..pull fuses one at a time to discover where ....good luck
