Once you rule out some kind of ignition problems,; spark plugs and wires, ignition timing, distrib. cap & rotor, the cause may be low fuel pressure from a failing pump or clogged filter. Listen to the pump in the gas tank. If its been getting louder lately, have the pressure tested.

I have a suzuki sidekick 92 I get spark and fuel but wount start. If I spare fuel in the intake it runs.

You will need to check the fuel pressure with a tester or gauge. You must know it is at spec before you look elsewhere. Have you changed the fuel filter lately (within the last year)?

Do i have to use a MAS sensor on a 1992 suzuki sidekick 1.6

its called a MAF sensor, sold rebuilt from cardone (ask)

its an air flow meter (mass air flow) on the G16v engine only. 16valves

you dont have to use anything. its always your choice,.

but when its missing the ecu goes to limphome mode

(this is a crude mimic of a maf, now)

and sucks fuel like mad.

so if fuel is cheap. run with NO maf

in limphome

spark is also retarded

RPM cap

and rich as a pig

and if run long like this , it burns the CAT to CRISP.

its easy to test. see above.

If I were you, i would check the fuel pump relay. I know when my 92 suzuki sidekick did that it was the fuel pump relay. Good luck

Check throtle position sensor... one section closes a set of contacts when you take your foot off the accelerator... this is sent back to the engine control computer which adjust the timing to insure the engine stays @ ~ 800 rpm. It's easy to set with just a simple multimeter...
