Question about 1999 Suzuki Esteem

1 Answer

Engine Missing I have recently changed my plugs and wires because my engine was mis-firing. I gave it a few weeks and it began to do it again, so I had both coil packs replaced. It ran great for another few weeks and now it is mis-firing again! What could be causing this?

If you haven't checked your alternator yet, it would be good to do so. If the voltage regulator has failed, you may be running at up to 17 volts for a system voltage and this would fry more than only the ignition system over time. If you don't have a cheap Chinese multimeter and are in the US, you can buy one of these for under $20 any day of the week and Harbor Freight has them on special for $2.49:
Centech digital meter
I keep one in each car and they are adequate for everyday use and come with almost intelligible Chinglish instructions.
Measuring across the battery terminals you should never have more than 14.5 volts (typically from 13.0 to 14.3VDC) with the engine running. Engine off with a normal healthy system you will measure 12.6VDC

Need to know the signs of the engine coil going out in 1994 GMC Sierra 1500 350V8


Hard starting or won't start, no power, stalling, mis-fire...etc.
How old are the plugs and wires? Plugs wear out, and with wires, its the age not the miles.
Please use AC/Delco wires, from a dealership. Yes they cost more, but you will thank me.
Has your fuel filter been changed recently?

Engines must have Air, Fuel and Ignition. Checking these systems will most likely find your problem.

rotate the wires swap #1 with the "bad" one if you can, before you spend money on a new set of wires. This problem usually is caused by: either a broken sparkplug

The code is a mis-fire code. This code does not tell you which cylinder is mis-firing.
Here is a list of other items to check :

- O2 sensor
- Catalytic converter
- EGR valve
- Cam sensor
- Bad computer

Please let me know what you find.

When's the last time you replaced the spark plug wires? Try that for you mis-fire. As for the vacuum hose, there should be a routing diagram somewhere on the hood or engine compartment somewhere. Trace it out and find where it should go. Oh BTW, bad spark plug wires can ruin a distributor cap.

there may be a software update for the powertrain control module for mis-fire monitor. check with your local dealer. but if thats not the case,these engines are known at least in my experience of having the heads crack between the valves and cause mild mis-fires. try compression testing all the cylinders and performing a leakdown test on them as well.
