Sounds like you need a fuel pump. If its the original with114,000 miles then replace it.

Where is the thermostat located on the 1999 esteem wagon

following the top radiator hose to the engine block, look where it connects to the engine. just under the hose, you see some bolts. that is the thermostat housing cap. remove the hose, and remove the cap, and there you are. When you replace the thermostat, make sure you clean the cap and engine block to shiny want no leaks from the old gasket. When you buy the new thermostat, make sure you get a gasket with it. some companies do not include the gasket anymore. Make you spend more money. easy job to do, takes about 30 minutes to do. hope this helps

Have you ever had your timing chain replaced? If not, then most likely your timing chain is getting loose and starting to tap on the sides of the housing. This is normal after probably 110-130000 miles, so you may consider this. DOHC engines don't have the lifter tapping problems that pushrod engines have. The reason you only year the timing chain tap at idle and when warm, is the metal expands when it warms up, making the chain slightly longer. At idle, chains and belts "flutter," or shake back and forth. when the engine speeds up, it puts more tension on the chain and it stops.

I just replaced the battery on my 1999 Suzuki Esteem wagon. How can I test if the alternator is working properly?

Your car has a warning light for the alternator,for one.and most of your garages will test your alternator for free if you are their customer.If your alternator is working properly the alternator light on the dash will light when you start the car and then go out all the while the motor is running.
