Suzuki Swift 1988 GTi engine hunting problem

My Suzuki Swift starts and idles fine for a couple of minutes and then between 1000 and 2500rpm the engine hunts all by itself.
What causes this?

    engine run at idle speed then hunt

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    I drove to the barber shop, when I finished cutting my hair started my car and as soon as it started it just shuts off. When I tried starting it again it wouldn't start, and I realized that the engine check light didn't come on.

1998 suzuki swift idle problems 4 speed 1300cc


no engine type stated, there are 6 engines used.
but bad idle is caused by 2 things.
  • misfire.
  • or lean AFR, lean fuel mix.. causes HUNTING
the ECU can also cause the hunt if it can not hold hot idle to spec.
most cars is 800rpm.

I have suzuki swift with a problem of switching off every 1.5km.does it have crankshaft sensor and where is it positioned.check engine light is on


old post......

if the CEL glows, running. that meas there are DTC errors stored
on this very old car its a flash code covered in the FSM
or alldata.com
but switching off, you meant stalls. engine stalls, lights switch off.
the ECU on your car does magic things to prevent all stall.s
so if it does stall that means, its serious and when it does stall
the CEL COMES BACK on, at the stall that is NORMAL.
key on, not running , the CEL lamp is ECU self test passing.
89 swift.
what country?
which engine, of the 6 offered world wide.?
1.3L gas or diesel.?
is it the GTI? the first suzuki to have EFI?
its G13B high performance twin cam engine.??????
New Zealand
???
sold there till 1994
many other countries this name ended in 1988
as you can see below there were two very different 1.3 engine.
I think yours is the G13A, early.

1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4
1.5 L G15A 16V I4
1.6 L G16 16V I4

now the late answser
the #1 all time cause for old suzuki's to stall
is the EGR main valve stuck open
#2, idle is way below 800 rpm hot.
#3 never had a tune up, in last decade.
#4 fuel starvation.
there is test for each. ask

Suzuki swift gti 1996 starts but cuts out after 5 seconds


When starting/cranking, computer will activate fuel relay so that it will start. Once running there are fail safes built in - no oil pressure, bad signal from crank angle sensor or throttle position sensor, crash sensor activated (stops fuel pump) or even immobilizer faulty. Will it idle with Mass Air Flow sensor unplugged? Could be a broken wire or bad connector. Hope you have found problem by now! An auto electrician will find it very quickly.

I have 2 x swift GTi's, with high rev problems!!


Well, depending on your market of course, I'd still be fairly sure you do have a choke! It is located on the rear of the intake air plenumn chamber and has 2 small coolant hoses that come up from underneath - one comes from the thermostat housing area, and the other goes to the water pump area. Disconnect these and make sure you can blow easily through the choke unit. Like most Suzuki thermo-wax choke elements, they need hot water to contract, and in so doing, reduce the amount of extra air let into the engine. Unfortunately, it sounds like you may have adjusted the throttle stopper screw (it may have had a tamper-proof cover on it). If you have, the throttle plate-to-barrel clearance should be set back to as close as what your other car is by measuring the clearance with feeler gages. Let me know how you get on. I've got a 1991 version of the same and I'm in Australia.
