SOURCE: engine light flashing

It sounds like you have a misfire. Anytime a misfire is detected by the powertrain control module (PCM) it flashes the check engine light (CEL) on and off. Do not drive it this way because it won't take long to damage the catalytic converter. Have the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) read with a scan tool or "code reader" to see what DTC or DTCs are set. If it's a 4 cylinder, it will have a P0301 set for a cylinder # 1 misfire, a P0302 for a cyl # 2 misfire & so on. If the misfire is random (ocurring in multiple cylinders intermittently) it will have a P0300 set. Once you know which cylinder is misfiring you can check that cyl to see what the cause might be. It could be an ignition coil or spark plug failure. The # 1 cyl is always the one closest to the front of the eng or this car, the one closest to the passenger side fender.

SOURCE: Thickness of brake disks for Suzuki Ignis Sport 109 HP, 2004

Generally you do not want to let them wear anymore than 1/16 of an inch either inner or outer pad. The inner pad will wear a little faster than the outer, but you will want to go by which ever one is thinner. As far as the parameters of new disk, they will have a minimum thickness per DOT standards. The minimum thickness is usually stamped on the disk (rotor), if it is not you can get this info from your local repair shop, or auto supply shop.

SOURCE: Car coded yesterday p0303 noe check engine light flashing

The only thing left is the injector or a vacuum leak on the manifold gasket sucking air in and causing a lean condition. Thats is its the only common issue providing you dont have a head gasket issue leaking coolant on that cylinder and the compression and valves are not leaking. The old spark plug should show a coolant issue if present. The white part will be shiney if you have a coolant loss. If the coolant is looking real dark you should have the cooling system checked for gas being pushed into the cooling system on compression stroke thru the head gasket.

Disconnected the negative battery few minutes. THis reset the PCM, if the check turn on again, need scanned to know excatly what code you have there.

2002 explorer cylinder 123 misfire

So am I to assume that this is a 3.0L V6 vehicle? Does the engine run OK or does it exhibit a rough idle and poor performance? When you say 123 misfire.. do you mean it had codes P0301, P0302,& P0303 in the pcm codes? If these codes are still there and the engine is running poorly, then you still have a misfire on these cylinders.. it may have not been ignition related. Fuel problems and compression problems can also contribute to a misfire. You may need to take vehicle to a reputable shop and have it diagnosed by them.

When i am driving my suzuki ignis (1.3,manual,2001)in a traffic(more than 45 mins)engine starts to miss(check light indicates) and it stops.cant start it for about 10-15 mins

I have a 2001 Suzuki Ignis and I have a similar problem. When I start the engine 5 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on with each beep. Also after I have been driving for about 45 mins 3 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on again. However my engine does not stop running. I have asked people about it and they think that it has something to do with a lose wire in the security system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Not running on 4 cylinders . changed coil pack injectors new leads unplug tps sounds a little bit better plug back in an runs very rough

Check each cylinder using a timing light.
Check each cylinder using a noid test tool
If the light flashes while the engine is runing the spark to the cylinder is good.
If the noid lights up while the engine is running the fuel injectors are good.

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing

Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.
