Question about 1993 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1993 Swift sedan and at times after moving off for the first time in the mornings, it is as if it does not change gear from 1st to 2nd smoothly. The engine races up and the car travels for aproximatly two minutes before going into 2nd gear then 3rd. This problem is intermittent. At other times, it might move off beautifully and change gears smoothly. What might be the cause of this and what is the likely solution for this? Regards Cleve

When you switch your car off at night and leave it till the morning, especially in older cars, gravity causes oils and lubricants to drip to the bottom of the car, then when its cold and you start it in the morning the oil doesn't do it's job correctly. you need to let the car heat up before you drive it, that should do the trick.
and also on a side note, if the car is automatic,if it isn't revving out before it changes gear it's fine.

Advice required re: Manual Gearbox Problem - Clutch drag symptoms when changing from 1st to 2nd gear.


problems with a clutch system will result in grating first gear or reverse gear as the input shaft is still being turned by the engine. 2nd gear is syncro operated so any mismatching of gear speeds will be overcome by the syncro ring of the gears. By double de clutching you state that the problem is eased somewhat and this indicates that the gear box is at fault ( shaft bearings, syncro rings, gear teeth ) hard movement of the gear lever would indicate failed gear cable ,linkage or gear lever pivot problems. What you describe is a gear box fault. I would take it back and tell them to fix it or exchange it . Keep all records of conversations and dealings as you may have to get legal help to have the shop full their warranty agreement. Time to remove ,repair and replace a gear box would not exceed 12 hours in an accredited shop

I HAVE A SLIGHT PURRING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE... WHEN I PUT THE CLUTCH IN IT STOPS... ALSO WHEN IM IN 1ST, 2ND AND 3RD GEAR WHEN IM ACCELERATING THERE ISNT A GOOD SOUND FROM IT!! BUT ITS FINE IN 4TH AND...


This would be most likely the first noise of a wearing input shaft bearing. It will only get louder, and eventual failure of the bearing will probably mean catastrophic gearbox failure. It stops when you put your foot on the clutch because the gearbox stops spinning then, and it is quiet in 4th and 5th because there is no side loading (as there is in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd) on the failing bearing. It wouldn't matter what sort of car it was, the gearbox should be overhauled as soon as possible.

Transmission will not shift out of 1st gear.


Check your transmission fluid level. If the filter has never been changed, now is a good time to replace the fluid and filter.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.
