Question about 1998 Suzuki Swift
I turn ignition on and it tries to kick over but wont?
Which engine? of the many and want country. ?
some are even diesel.
there are 3 phases to this.
and runs. and may stall soon after. or not.
at what point does this process fail.
if it dont crank we diagnose th starter system.
it fails to start (we check spark , then fuel) if both ok we check for lost compression (cam timing belt slipped>?)
if it stalls, lots more test.. over 50 causes.
this is what a tech does, diagnose. saving lots of time guessing and buying un-needed parts.
tell more, get more. but what engine.'

make sure you are getting fuel...that the fuel injectors are working...try spraying ether in air intake..if it starts n dies then suspect fuel system

Check your connections on the battery and especially the ground connection on the engine...the problem you describe sounds like a bad connection....you may need to remove the battery cables and clean the posts and the battery cable connectors...also, there is a ground going to the engine block...follow the ground cable(black) down to where it is connected to the engine, remove the bolt holding the cable on and clean the area where the ground goes on with sandpaper to ensure a good connection...you may want to do this with the positive connector as well...it will have a crimp connector on it also, and you will need to clean it the same way as the ground connector...when working with the battery cables, make sure you have one disconnected from the battery to make sure you don't short them out
