Question about 2007 Suzuki SX4
I have a 2009 suzuki sx4, when I run on a puddle, I suspect something gets wet and the engine check light comes on. probably not a big deal, coz it goes away after a few days(I suspect when it dries). can I tape off something to prevent this from happening again?

open your owners manual. if you havent already and see if there is a reset proceedure if so and light is still on go to a firestone or dealer and see if you may have a faulty tpms (tire pressure monitor system). or you may just need there tool to reset light. and yes it might cost you somthing to do it.

The solution is that when the oil filter is removed, oil gets on the O2 sensor and ruins it. Must cover the O2 and that keeps the oil off. To keep the check engine light off, is to replaced the O2 sensor. Problem solve. Later on sx4's they move the O2 in a different spot. I work on Suzuki cars. Don

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

No, there is no direct oil feed to the gudgeon pin. There is a cross drilling on the upper half of the bigend of the conrod that allows oil to be sprayed upwards at the right moment to both lubricate and cool the piston. It sounds more like you have piston slap (excessive piston to bore clearance) that will be more pronounced when the engine is cold. It's always a good idea to either let your engine warm up a little before driving, or just drive sedately until it has warmed up.
It could be small end related, but that noise is generally only noticable at that point where the load is least on the piston to conrod connection - ie: at the time where the piston pushing the conrod changes to the conrod pushing the piston, and vice-versa. Don't worry about an oil flush. Sometimes it's the carbon deposits that stop an engine making MORE rattles!

maybe the sensor is faulty, only having 17k miles on it i'm guessing that is what it is, get it looked at or changed
