    Iam sorry about that, you might want to maybe call a mobile repair service, and see what they will charge you to have the codes read.Just a thought.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle

The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

Car has had its problems. it just died one day we checked spark plugs, everyone thinks it's the fuel pump. we turn the key and hear nothing flowing i had someone under the back of the car. changed the fuel...

Put gas into your carborator. Try to start the car. If it catches and dies, it is fuel related. If not, it is something else. It could be a lot of things. Sorry. But, you need to make sure the engine is not getting gas. Cora, do you have a check engine light on? If you can rule the gas out, you can check other things in the engine. The only way to check without a code, is to check them one by one. I will help you as much as I can. There is probably 20 things it could be. We can start with the common problems first. Check your fuel and let me know. My name is rickyrt44. If you have any questions, contact me. The pressure in the pump may have caused it not to turn on. Spray it into the carborator. If it starts and dies instantly, that is your problem. Thank you for schoosing FixYa. Good luck.

When you turn the key, you should here a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you don't, check this. Spray gas or engine starter into the carborator. Try to start the car. If it starts and dies instantly, fuel problem. Check fuel pump fuse, if equipped. Check to see if pump is sending fuel to fuel filter. Check inside fuel filter. After, it is either one if the test are negative. If you need anything else, please let me know. I am here to help in anyway I can. Thank you so much for choosing FixYa.

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.
