Question about Suzuki Cars & Trucks
Suzuki Sidekick has a new fuel pump, but isn't starting. We had a hunch it was the fuel pump relay, however finding it has posed more difficult than we thought, any ideas?
Why not post the symptoms and we do diagnosis.
all I have to work with is "isnt starting"
Does it crank over robustly.? see NOcrank below.
what engine.? what year,?
Sidekicks have 3 engine, and all 3 are radial different i design.
always know what engine is there first, then diagnose,
Ill take a wild guess, here, its not the 1.8L sport DOHC engine
but is the G16, A or B
ill guess its the G16 B with the 1995 16v option.
they made these tin boxes from 89 to 1998. (kicks)
so got spark on all 4 cylinders, not one.
if yes, does TEST FUEL work (see scotty do that below)
ok no spark
does DIZZY rotor spin (1.8L has no dizzy) so do it.
no, cam belt slipped and broke, 60k mile service NEVER done.
yes, cam spins
i check timing , cranking and its at 5 Deg BTDC.good.
no the timing is way off, that is because the timing belt slipped. bingo.
timing is at spec. good.
so test fuel runs HERE) does it?
yes it does, (it must)
so its a fueling issue, note how bad fuel pumps is last.
i then check fuel pressure, its at 35psi, its good.
so check for signs of injection (spark plug tip)
there is non.
i do a NOID test.
all noids lamps dead.
the ECU is cutting fuel full time
i find the TPS ground wire cut. open. dang.
5cent fix, no pulling take and 5 hours hard labor,.. not at all.
NOCRANK is 1st.
NO STARTS (watch Scotty video)
every possible way.... is here,
