Have a 1995 suzuki sidekick that will not start. It gets fire and I have tried starting fluid in the throttle body and nothing. I just put a new exhaust system on it. Before I drove it to town then on way...

the G16 engines all need a cam belt every 60k or will do that like clock work, G16B MPI 4 injector or G16A, TBI ,one injector engine.?????????????????????????????????????????????

compression is not OK, it\'s 150psi or more.

is it? good?, and to run a 4 banger, all 4 need to work. think, 4 engines.

sure the cat broke up, that can clog some mufflers. and cause huge back pressure. (the engine pumps air, if you put a stopper in the exhaust the AIR PUMP DIES)

all engines.

its an old car.

i cant tell you what order to do things.

but my tool box is full of tools , is yours?

the cat back pressure check at the 02 is 2 psi or less at 2500 rpm, but yours dont start, so dropping the exhaust solves that.

i just rack back the exhaust manifold on the bolts/studs.

mr, Otto cycle engine is not new ,nor has it changed.

it still plays by the book , compresson, spark, fuel, in that order.

so compress x4 is what tested sparks out, WIDEOPEN throttle

80psi is common reading x4 (dont be lazy do all 4 )

80 is retarded cam, timing belt never ever serviced, and is now slipped. or heck busted

150+ is good

next is SPARK got spark on all 4?

all are dead, or #1 timing is way retared see slipped belt.

ok spark is good, and timing set.

so it runs on test fuel.

yes, , ok yes, IT WILL.

now we work fueling LAST.

cant burn fuel with no compression or timed correctly

no tools? , all is lost.

no tools , no joy.

(that means basic, meters and gauges, i assume every mech has wrenches, its a given)

Vehicle is started while in neutral then is engaged to first gear and this is when the vehicle die

I must assume the car is a A/T automatic transmission?
Ok this is called stalling.
the one key fact is missing, can the fast right foot , make the car
drive fast up hills. that is you prevent the stall and drive.?
lacking this fact, makes all below too long........

the 95 sidekicks cam with 2 engines.
one is TBI 8v and other is 16v MPI, the repair is totally different on these cars, due to vastly different EFI systems.

so i will answer in the generic , lacking these facts.
1: idle speed controls dead.
2: engine problems, (low compression)
3: never ever tuned up? never did the 60,000 mile service.?
4: same as #3 timing belt slipped,
5: spark parts never replaced. plugs, wires ,cap, and rotor.?
6: weak fuel pressure do to never changing the fuel filter ever.
7: clogged injectors.
8: if MPI engine, huge air leaks in the induction (from behind the MAF all the way to the intake valves.. bad news on MPI , air leaks.
aka: vacuum leaks.
just a short list. for now.
got tool;s?

Gas over flow on Suzuki Sidekick 1995

Could be a leaking fuel injector or faulty pressure regulator.
I would unplug the injectors first and see if the flooding stops.
You may have to test each injector to find the defective one.

1994 Suzuki Sidekick no power

Hard to say. Could be anything from a cylinder miss-fire to dirty injectors to transmission problems.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it feel like it is starting out in low gear ?
Have you had the truck serviced lately ?

It's a1989 SUZUKI SIDEKICK 1.6 L,First start when it's cold is normally high RPM,Gradually going down as it is warming up,but goes all the way down that almost die,then goes up again until it's warm,then...

Buy a bottle of Techron Fuel injector cleaner. It's sold in many grocery stores and all auto parts stores. Pour the whole bottle into the gas tank when you can fill up. Drive the car and don't put more gas in until the car is almost empty. That should fix it

Check if you put back all the air (vacuum hoses) hoses to their proper places. You might inter change them making the EGR valve open. Also check your fuel filter and fuel injectors.
