You may have to take off a plastic cover or engine cover to get at them. Usually on most 1.8 liter suzuki engines they are coil on plug ignition. Usually they have two 10mm or 12mm (has been a while since the last one) they should look like little black boxes on top the engine. first things first un-hook battery black or - cable. If not little black boxes (pretty sure they generally are). Each little black box is a coil. (6 coils on v-6 4 coils on 4cylinder) At the bottom of each coil you will have either a plug wire, which is what I would start with (coils can get to be alot of $$) they may be 1 unit but I think they may be seperate. Just be gental. Un hook the bad coil from the conector usually latched at top may use small flat head screw driver to assit if changing all do 1 by one and DON'T!!! change where the clips go keep each one on the same hole it came out of. I would also invest in new plugs which are easy to replace, with a socket wrench and the right socket I recommend Denso plugs noo need to go fancy just oe equipment. just make sure to get them tight but not to tight. But the black (maybe greenish) box is what the coil is and what needs to be replaced shouldn't take too long to do I've got alot of time in on the job (auto tech). tighten the bolts down about how you tight you took them out at they are plastic. Put everything back the way it was take notes if needed. and hook the black (ground or - cable back up) and start

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar with a 3.8 liter engine. Where is the crankshaft sensor


The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor on the 1998 Windstar with 3.8L is located near the crankshaft pulley on the front cover. There is a shield mounted over the CKP sensor that you'll need to remove to access the sensor.

Would you care to share why you suspect the CKP sensor is bad? Typically with Fords a bad CKP will cause a no-start condition due to no spark, but you'll still hove good fuel pressure.

Where is the crankshaft position sensor located on the 2002 Mitsubishi Montero sport xls 3.5 truck.


Hi David, The link below is how to test the crank sensor (1997-2004 3.0l Montero, Hope this helps......CHEERS
http://easyautodiagnostics.com/mitsubishi/3.0L/crankshaft-position-sensor-test-1#3
The crankshaft position (CKP) sensor is located behind the timing belt... but testing it is done without removing the timing belt or its components. This is due to the fact that the crank sensor's connector is located on top of the engine and in plain view (next to the ignition control module). In the photo below, the orange arrow points to the location of the crankshaft position sensor connectors (photo applies to: 3.0L 1997-2004 Montero Sport).

1996 Suzuki sidekick 1.8L engine


The 1.8 is a J18 engine. On all Suzuki J engines, the crank position sensor is under the flywheel/flex plate. Yes, that will require pulling the engine or transmission. BUT the electrical connector to it is under the intake above the starter. So you can troubleshoot the system without pulling the motor. :) With this engine, the crank sensor is only used for miss-fire detection but will throw a code if bad.

I have a suzuki sidekick sport 1998 1.8 runs on high idle 1200 rpms


Check for a vacuum leak. A broken or loose connection. Short of that, it is probably your idle air control valve.

I have a 1.8 1998 suzuki sport sidekick jlx. It failed emission testing. Replaced the mass air flow sensor, throttle position sensor, coils and spark plugs. The check engine light still comes on and it...


hi,
spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, or fuel pump might be getting ready to go. maybe a vacuum leak, hook it up to a vacuum gauge and see if the needle is steady, or take it to autozone and have them run a OBD test. I think its free at autozone.

Where is the O2 sensor located on 98 Suzuki Sidekick


There is one on the exhaust manifold ( if it's a six cylinder there is one on each manifold). Then there is one on or right after the catylitic converter.
