What would cause my 2002 suzuki esteem to just die

Jamie, Is or was engine light on, are there any codes, was there any recent work done? The more info. the easier to help diagnose.
Removing the oil fill cap and have a helper crank the engine, while you look for cam movement,if you have cam movement that's good.
Next squirt some starter fluid in throttle body and try starting, try a couple times. If starts and revs fine while running on starter fluid, problem is a faulty fuel pump filter,fuse, relay or pump.
If it spits sputters or backfire while trying to start, timing belt has slipped probably and needs replaced.

make shore that your timing is 100% use correct cam locks(can be obtained from tool supplier) and crank lock pin (7mm Drill bit will work )There is a hole on the back of the engine(under the starter motor) usually has a plastic plug in it pull the plug out and turn motor over until fly wheal locks up make shore piston 1 is at tdc also make shore that the vibration damper (front pulley is not damaged or that the tooth gear on the pulley has moved

I need to know how to set egine timeing when replaceing timeing belt...

if its a twin cam 2.0L, turn crank over until these marks align up with centre crank bolt (to remove pulley remove smaller outer bolts) then remove belt tensioner to remove belt should use cam lock tool to hold cams in position. turn tensioner with allen key anti-clockwise to get pointer in "V" section then do up 13mm retaining bolt. turn over by hand a couple of times and recheck tensioner position as well as timming marks all align up again before reassembling and starting engine.

I used cam locks and belieseems that my crank sensor is not working now so I would like to know how to double check my timing marks before I close it up again. Can you help?ve I followed all the...

You should be able to remove the upper front forward cam-dust covers. With these out you should be able to align the cams to their timing marks. As for the crank you'll have to rely on the timing mark on the forward crank pulley/harmonic balancer.
I hope this may have assited you. If you in need of further info or images please send a note back.
Best regards,

I've got a 1994/L nissan primera 1600 16v Twin cam and for some reason it wont start off the key but if you bump start it it runs

ok,first off make sure your battery isnt dead,,,if thats ok then id suspect the starter motor,,does it sound like a clicking noise when you start,,its either one or the other anyway,,,if it starts off the key when you use jumper cables then you need a new batt,,hope that helps
