Question about Suzuki Esteem
A non Esteem Baleno.
No engine stated. nor if the stalling is hot only cold or both engine temps. my guess hot engine only stalls.
wow some folks just post 1 word, stalls.
others, like you a nice list of symptoms.
very good. but no engine stated, the G16b? or J20? DOHC.?
this is called stalling, and stalling has many causes.
why not answer this first. (after engine size !!!)
my fast right foot can save the stall (first time ever told here ,bravo that) (there are over 50 causes, can post list but is silly to do )
is the engine misfiring? shacking?
1: easy to save stall? (called feathering the throttle)
2: hard , tad hard.
3: impossible (not you ,as you said)
if it only takes a tiny toe (right) press to keep if from stalling?
then it might be only a sticking ISC valve.
if tad harder its stuck open EGR (Defeat it to test this case)
if its not EGR and it misfires. (its not spark due to stated overhaul)
i only have questions, after all Im blind and cant drive your car.
1: BATTERY OVER 13.3VDC RUNNING?
2: CEL lamps glow , key on? then stay out running?
3: scan tool show any errors running,? our cars have OBD2 from 1996 to now, does your non USA car have OBD2? (varies by where on planet car was sold)
4: do you have full power wide open throttle up hills
yes, then the MAF is ok.
5: there are 5 engines used world wide on Baleno.
some have no MAF but do have a MAP.
6: the TPS sensor bad or will not signal idle and idle controls are dead.
7: the PCM is in limphome (i said to scan it) and if in failsafe, suzuki name for limphome, idle controls are suspended in failsafe.
the FSM states that clear as day. and is true from personal experience.
these tests show me that the cause is not loss of 12vdc to EFI or park.
in this case, the engine misfires so bad it stalls
or is just running out of air. (ISC stuck closed)
on our 1999 cars we drive with the the scan tool connected.
Omg, P0304. i check spark tip #4 and its green with antifreeze
or the injector leaks, or is partially clogged. is spark tip black on #3 or white. hummmmmmm
or other DTC errors driving and stalling.
any code with P03xx will cause stalls. not looking , is why you missed that...
