I have a 1995 Suzuki Sidekick jx it will not drive forward but will drive in reverse. I put oil in car and the transmisson fluid is full what could be the problem


95 jx
but is it 3speed or 4 speeds.
if 3speed, the lever not really going to Drive?
if that does happen the trans is bad.
if 4sp, (see od light see od switch and P/N switch that is 4speed
as is the 2 on gears, if 4speed it has a TCM brain
the tranny brain, and we can scan, it , or more accurately a jumper
clip , and the TCM flashes out codes
is the the OD lamp flashing, yes that is the TCM begging for help.

next time post trans gear counts, as we can not guess that ever
nor engine. 95 had 2 engine choices.

the 3speed also has a filter in the pan area (above)
if packed in junk,, as they all do. it will only shift hot. or not at all.
its called a full flush, with filter. not a lame drain and fill.

Why did my 97 Suzuki Sidekick suddenly, start smoking and losing power; now all oil is gone and engine knocking. No evidence of oil leaks prior?


The G16b.
so leaks after?
do a compression test, , warm , wide open throttle
spec is 180 PSI x4

white smoke (oil or steam)
or black smoke.
the color i bet is white and that be oil ,since it drops.
if all oil is gone that is the end. this must never be allowed happen.

Why my sidekick wont shift to any gear


please post year, for best help, please.
ok, its a real Samurai or Sammy with kick engine, (so common latter)
I will answer for real Suzuki Sidekick.
the car came in many forms. 4wd, 2wd a, 3sp, 4sp and 5sp M/T
sold in all permutations.
but since you used the any gear, word.
ill roll dice on A/T automatic transmission, my 3 cars are all M/T.

The A/T. will not 3sp chase many ways to not shift. its 100% mech.
and all you can do is check levels.
the A./T 4speed, is electronic shifted, (know it well) and the TCM
shifts car no matter what. and has scan codes to tell you what is wrong, and has limphome mode to still shift and skips 1 gear.
the M/T 5speed, has a bad shifter tip plastic, if it cant shift.
if you force it in to 1st (ask how) and car dont mover, the clutch is bad.
ask how to go father, we can easy.

Have a 95 suzuki sidekick had some work done on the wireing around fuel injectors now my engine light is on and it wont shift out of first gear.please help no money left


this should be a simple solution rock your vehicle forward then reverse on running engine
they call this trans lock usually happens on hills or pressing down the shifting knob
get a few friends to help push forward if cant start vehicle because in gear its like the old 4x4 hubs in order to get out of lock it needs to be rolled a little
my little 4x4 did same thing called a friend he told me same way to fix

Suzuki sidekick clutch problem


Check the cable clearance. Too much clearance will cause clutch slippage or total clutch disengagement. Adjust the cable so that the clutch pedal will be hard to press by hand .5 to .75 inch from its initial point.

My 1995 suzuki sidekick idling problem


Check if you put back all the air (vacuum hoses) hoses to their proper places. You might inter change them making the EGR valve open. Also check your fuel filter and fuel injectors.

1990 Suzuki Sidekick problem


It sounds like the idle speed actuator is part of the issue. I would also have the exaust inspected for a blocked catalytic converter.
