Question about Suzuki Esteem

I can't seem to get the hea off, so I can tell if its the gasket, or the head.On my "2001 Suzuki Esteem" mine has a 1.8 dual overhead cam. Can some one help me, or show me a diagram, on how to remove the head and replace the gasket. Or is there a video repair.

You suspect the head gasket is blown? Was the car overheating? Blowing steam out the rear? Did you get the compression checked? It would have told you what it was and which cylinder it was. The cam/s has to come off to get the head/s off. There are a couple of bolts under the cams. I would put he bolts back in that you got off, put on a comp tester, and spin the engine over, don't let it start, then determine what has to be done. But the head gasket is one thing, the head could need to be surfaced, and the bolts need to be replaced. There are videos on youtube about engine repair, maybe not your car but close. Check it out, Hope this helps.

I need to know where a cam shaft sensor goes in a 1999 Suzuki Esteem 1. 8 4 door stick show me diagrams


not true, Huseyin.! at all.
OP: (original poster)
J18 engine. FWD. application. USA setup
with COP coils x4 (DIS ignition?)
our Esteems started in 1999....
other countries have them too, but use totally different spark (distributor) and Im not answering for THAT, only USA EPA spec. engines.
some othere countries, has a Mazda. 1.8L BP.
answering for J18 only.
the J18 is an understoked, J20. (early engine)
good to know for parts swaps !

OP backup and read your first post.on same topic.
the answer is there, too.
facing engine, crank pulley on left
see that head, see the front cam,
this cam has the CMP drive (left side,) or right facing engine) the cam drives it directly.
so... is just there.

why? not scan the PCM and see if you have P0340 errors = CMP misfiring..... (even 1 in 10)
and the prev. post has the real diagram....
cmp mount is here.

the part is also shown at the online suzuki parts pages.


Scan it, get this ???????
