    I need more info does the head lights shine bright or has all power died to ? is it actually cranking and not starting ? so it just died without knowing to much more than that i would start with the alternator by having it tested then i would move on to the battery and have it tested then if those where good i would check the fuel sending unit in the gas tank . but first i would check all fuses and i would look for signs of any foul play to my gas tank anyway i hope i have helped you let me know if there was anything else it did like over heating or anything.

Check your fuel filter or have your fuel pump checked. The reason it's not turning over is that you've killed (drained) the battery by trying to restart it. Good Day

1997 suzuki sidekick 1.6 liter runs like 20 minutes then dies. like its not getting gas. wont start till cools down again . any help much appreciated :)


not too cool kick
is check engine light on, at key on and goes out after running?

you forgot to say, does it restart instantly after it dies.
and does it stink of raw gas after or make black smoke.?

when it dies, can you keep it going with a fast right foot>
if it dont start , right after did you try the secret
unflood mode (wide open throttle)

if car wont start , try test fuel
best is instant start in a can (spray)

key test here is car flooding or is it starving for fuel.
those are the top Suzuki tricks.

Car starts in the morning, but does not want to accelerate...


Check your cold start curcit in the fuel injection. It puts extra fuel in to help it run when cold ( used to be a choke on old carbs) then when you restart it the engine has warrmed enough to run without the cold strt curcit.
If you just start is and don't move it just let it run will it clear up and not die?

Did you change your fuel filter? What about the air filter? You nay also have a bad plug wire. It may need a tune up. I do my own.
