Question about 1993 Suzuki Sidekick
I have a 1993 Suzuki Sidekick, 16valve, 1.6L and I believe that I need to replace the Valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals. Just wanted to get advice as i believe I know how to do it, just want confirmation.
I think it will be a one piece gasket.Get it at the parts store. Look at it, I think it will make the job go easier!

If its not the igniter, maybe you forgot to time the engine (timing marks will align at #4 firing poition, not at #1) when you remove the cam shaft.If the engine is not properly timed during assembly, it will not surely fire.

There are probably 8 - 12 bolts/nuts that attach the valve cover to the cylinder head. Remove the bolts, clean the mating surface, install new gasket, and reattach the valve cover with the bolts.

Hello tdxflygirl: My name is Roger and I will give you some helpful information. All these things may be wrong but repair as you money allows. The main leak I would be worried about is the leak behind the timing belt cover. Your timing belt does not work well with oil. Oil will break down the composition of the belt. You did not say which motor you have in your vehicle so I assume it is a 1.6l. engine. As for the valve cover they usually seep more than out right leak. There is no pressure on them like the camshaft and crankshaft seals. The distributor seal does have oil pressure on it but should be inexpensive to repair.The ripped intake boot I am not quite sure which one you are talking about. This could be a grommet or a boot. If this is boot it could create a vacuum leak and cause the check engine light to come on. The housing you are talking about I am not sure of. As I can not find a good picture of any housing in the repair manual. As for the plug wires They will become oil soaked over a period of time. This will short them out and cause a misfire in the engine. I would recommend getting a second opinion before spending a lot of money an repairs. Also have them prioritize the repairs as to what should be done first and do them a little at a time. Shops are like everyone else. Times are not all that great. They would love to do this all at once. But a small job here and there add up also. Should you nee further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya Roger
