2000 Suzuki Swift Clutch Question

I have a 2000 Suzuki Swift and well when I'm driving it shows signs of the clutch slipping, yet if I let it idle, put on the E-Brake and try to shift into 1st and pull through it, my car fights the brake, starts to slowly pull through it and no sounds or signs of slipping.

I think my clutch might be adjusted out too far, cause the nut is nearly to the end of the bolt. My car also makes a whining/rattling noise yet it goes away when i step on the clutch.

My friend said I might need a new clutch cable. I dunno cause I cant afford like 600+ to replace my entire clutch.

Im really at a loss and dunno what to do. Should I tighten my clutch cable and adjust the nut closer to my car, closer to my bumper OR just replace the cable?

    Well as far as I know my clutch system has never been replaced, though Im not sure. I bought the car about a year ago and up until now there has never been any problems.

    I was quoted by pep boys 600+ dollars to replace the entire clutch system, cable, plate, flywheel etc.

A clutch cable doesn't take much to install. Who told you $600.00?? You don't have to take the trans. loose to do this. All you do is unhook the cable from pedal and unhook if from the trans. This job should only take you an hour if you've never done it before. How long has the clutch been in your car?

    Try the cable first. Do the simple stuff. If the problem still exists, if you're mechanically inclined and have a weekend free and have a buddy to assist you, you can easily replace the clutch assy. yourself. Let me know if you'd like more info about your system. Thanks Lee

My daughters 2003 Suzuki Swift is not shifting right when it is really cold outside. When it is warm it is not too bad. It is not engaging all the way. It is cold here now so it is doing it all the time.

I recently had the same problem with my 2000 Swift. After having the transmission rebuilt the mechanic said he had adjusted the clutch cable and instaled a different spring on the clutch to compensate for the cold making parts stiff. I haven't noticed the same problem since.

1999 suzuki swift stalling problem

could be a sticking idle air control valve... a little cylinder on the side of your throttle body.. it helps control your idling air fuel ratio.. this goes bad could cause your problems... also easy for you to replace... normally 2 small bolts and a harness.. usually run about 35-85 dollars.. check price and if it's about 35 or so.. i'd go ahead and change it anyways.. 9 years it's probly due.. :D
