Change the fluid and see if that corrects the problem, this is an electronically controlled transmission so a code check is also a good idea.

What size are the bell housing bolts on a 1994 suzuki sidekick 1.6 8v auto trans

bell to engine, or bell to trans, some have side braces to trans.
3speed auto or 4 speed, ?
tough question, you lost ALL your bolts. (ouch) the are all metric.
the FSM nor the official Ecat, shows NO size.... (fact)
first off,.if not all lost then the other side there. are same size.
if the left is not missing , you have bolts to match to right.!
correct? take the left bolts to store and buy a match.
and the nuts. there.

there are 4 factors on these bolts. (suzuki still sells them)
1: diameter, most are 8 and 10 mm. measure the hole see that?
2: pitch, (iso spec sizes ) per above.
3: length (this too can be measured,)
4: grade. (id use grade 8.8) we dont have spec, so.... more is better.....
if not using OE parts.(suz)
you get to measure each hole first. (with a dial caliper)
measure inside diameter. or use 3 known bolts to find this out.
the MM diameter. 25.4 x inches = metric,

there are 2 big studs there too.
and finding that nut sizes is not hard. at all.
get diameter with caliper then buy the ISO pitch nut matching that.
there are fine and coarse ISO sizes. just looking answers that.
but if not, buy 2 nuts, that diameter in both fine and coarse.
bingo the nut is found.
as seen here

that same dial caliper tool (all shops have
the rear measure depth. (basics)
the rear is insert in to a hole on trans to the block side and total depth is known (to rear edge of bell casing)
so buy mm length just less than that.
there is no easy way, only using a tool finds this out.
or use stick pushed in to hole an use thumb nail to mark stick
then measure that with any metric ruler. directly.

or just buy them. (they have no graphics for this level of detail back then so cant see them , must ask)

you will have to call them and tell them what's missing.
if you had listed all bolts missing i can give out real suz. part numbers. (i have a real hard copy parts list manual)

all this above is standard shop practices... how to measure bolts.

Flywheel bolt size

I'm thinking here that the head of the bolts is not very thick in which case the socket you are using will need some modification. If you look in the socket you will see that there is a small lead in relief and this will only allow the socket to full engage on 1/2 of the bolt head. Place the socket in a vice and use a grinder to grind of the face of the socket until the sides are square across. This will give full contact with the bolt head inside the socket.. Another point, it is unusual to find metric bolts in a USA made engine so check out the other size metric sockets as European metric use 9-11-13-15-16-18-20 mm sizes compared to Asian 10-12-14-17-19-21 mm. in auto production.

Size caliper bolts

It will be metric . The trick is Asian metric use spanner sizes 10-12-14-17-19-21mm while European metric use 11-13-15-18-20 and so on Unless you have a full range of spanners the one you want will be the odd size. 5/8 is around 18mm so try that

'99 Beetle cruise control surge and speedometer has slight flutter.Occasionally speedometer drops to zero mph and cruise will then stop working. The "surge" is so bad that you can not drive with cruise on....

I would take a blind guess and sat the speedo sensor has an issue. 99' beetle should have an 01M auto, and the speed sensor is also the dipstick for the final differental drive. search around this area of the trans for the cable and snoop around. loose at the trans ? bad connection somewhere??
