I had had the clutch replaced on my 2007 Suzuki swift sport due to an oil leak on an oil seal at the top of the engine but the problem has come back is the another seal on the gearbox that should have been...


automatic trans right?not stick, both have clutches.!!
so you want us to guess leaks.?
well is it ATF leaking? or engine oil>?>
pink or brown, oil>?
finding A/T leaks is no easy task,
some seals will fail again if the TC is not swapped out.
the seal runs on a metal surface there, and most not be damaged
the pump is there and it can leak.
finding it is no easy task, and very expensive.

find a mech, that will find it
clean it all , drive for 5 miles, see leak now? way 1.
way2
use dye IR light methods
buy the dye kit and put it into the unsaid oil source.
ask any mech, on earth to ID that oil, ATF, GL4, or engine oil
then add dye to that source, and run engine, and load up trans (A/T)
and see it leak and see the dye glow as it does with IR light .
$15 kit, to do.

try top post next time, what engine you have, and what trans.
we cant guess any of that, a swift to me , is a metal cage.
what matters here, is what driveline you have (cage gone)

danger, Will Robinson.?
buy the FSM and read it and those very important safety issues?
or alldata.com
the book is clear on those steps. read them yet, or just winging it?
all connectors have locks. that too is covered in the FSM.
and there are many lock styles, even on one car.
what engine??????????????????????
there are 4 engines. 2.4 to 3.8Liter. matters no?
here is 3.8L

  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Right inner splash shield
    • Accessory drive belt
    • Water pump pulley bolts
    • o remove the water pump it must be positioned between the pump housing and the drive hub. Refer to the accompanying illustration for further clarification.

1993 geo tracker has allways ran great then last weeek was little ruff starting didnt want run then it did drove around about 40 mins, then pulling out from store it died and wouldnt start it cranked but...


this is a very old car, I restored a 91,
took me 1 month hard labor to get 91 to be
reliable and safe.
the first step is to find out if the car is a 8valve or 16,???
then get the book on it as most mech, in you area have not a clue how to fix these very old and odd cars. old electronics called OBD1 and suzuki support on this old EFI system is zip .
ever do the 60k tune up?
ever replace the timing belt, if not why not? it will slip and the engine
dies.
sounds like you are losing spark or fuel.
only conducting tests, to find the cause, will work , guessing is futile.

If you own this old car, get the FSM.
then when getting help from a mech, you have the book in hand.
and he can then use it.
In a pro show (ASE) they have alldata dot com and can use that.
or
this.

Good Evening, right behind your belts is your water pump. This is something you shoudl have replaced pretty darn soon if not it could be detrimental to the life of your engine. Hope this sheds some light on your situation.

LEAKING ANTIFREEZE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON AND


Hi:
If your coolant leak is minor, it would be a good idea to identify the general area that the drip is coming from,,either radiator area , or engine area. A bottle of Barrs leak will do wonders for a small radiator leak, but if your water pump or hose is leaking, they need replaced.
That will help you figure out where to go with that.
You need to scan your car to figure out what is tripping the light. Auto Parts stores dwill do this for free, Once you have a code, you can take your trouble shooting in the direction the code leads you.

98 pathfinder water pump


Chances are if you have a coolant leak right under the water pump, especially with engine running, the inner seal in the water pump is shot & the entire water pump will need to be replaced with a reman / new one. For the amount of hassle required to replace the seal it is worth the couple hundred bucks for the new pump.

There would definitely be overheating problems if the pump were not working at all. You will also have overheating problems present if there is low coolant, make sure the rad is topped up, with heater(s) on "Hot" inside & run the engine until it shows warm on the gauge. Make sure all of the belts are tight & pump looks like its spinning.
