Question about 2005 Suzuki Reno

1 Answer

My 2005 Suzuki Reno won't start. It is not the battery (its brand new), alternator, or starter. What is most likely wrong with it.

Two common possibilities; no fuel or no spark. Neither of these are that tough to check.
Pull any one of the spark plug leads off of the plug. Position it so the open end is close to the engine block, chassis or other obviously electrically grounded point. Have someone crack the engine for several seconds while you watch for spark. If the insulator is very deep, you may not see one and then you need to stick (carefully) a screwdriver into the plug and watch the shaft of it for spark. If you have a spark, put the lead back on the plug.
Now, finding a point to check for fuel. Most fuel injected cars have a connector (port) on or near the fuel rail that supplies the injectors with fuel. It looks a lot like a tire valve but different size and DON'T confuse the Air Conditioning connectors - you would be bleeding off refrigerant. If you can't tell the difference, ask a friend. Either of these connectors may have a cap over the valve.
After a start-attempt is made, there should be pressure in the fuel line. Once you have found the right port, with you face turned away or protected, briefly press the valve's center pin to see if it will squirt fuel.
If you have fuel, then I think you are better off having the car looked at since there are several things that could now be at fault and it would require more knowledge (and a little equipment) to pursue them.

Hi I'm anthony I have a 2005 suzuki reno I think it's a grate car so I'd like to beef it up with a bigger motor what engine do u think would be best fitting for low budget rebuild?

I would put a 5.7 litre V8 Shelby Mustang engine into it. It would make it fly! Trouble is there would be nowhere for you to sit! This is a joke right :>) You can't put any other engine into that tiny car other than the one that came with it!

The only thing you can do is buy some performance pats for it, perhaps even go faster vinyl stripes.

    look at both sides of engine.
    one side has a starter. (all engines)
    if not on front, side, that means it other.
    exhaust side or intake, side, look both?

    sold gas and diesel , ill toss coin, lands on gas.
    2.0 L Family II I4 (petrol) GM engine. L34 ! Daewoo X20SED
    2.0 L RA 420 I4 (diesel)

    all this is on
    or the 4 buck suzuki page

    gas is twin cam belt drive
    The L34 also known as the U20SED is a 2.0 L

    so lets use real names for engines, (daewoo/gm mixed up)

    one way to see parts, on and engine, is pretend to buy one used

    see cam belt.
    see intake side, bingo>?
    see stater hole there????? gapping wide.


    Easter egg hunts,
    did you know you are not helpless.
    the dealer pages show all parts

    and it there too.

    and the real FSM , is there too... posted 100s of times.
    $4 to look. best deal of any car maker....

    and suzuki is chapter 11 here, so sell it.?
    if in USA./ sell it. I would.
