Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change


the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust


Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier and i went to start it up last nite but didnt start up but went this morning after couple tries started right up ...i dont know what could be ?


This is because the spark plugs are fouled out have the spark plugs replaced and make sure they are winter plugs some cars have colder plugs for the summer which have a hard time in the winter.

My car went from 30 miles a galllon to 20 miles a gallon it seems over nite


most likely suspect is the carb

However, I'd start with your basic tune-up first...
  • replace spark plugs
  • replace spark plug wires
  • replace Dist cap and rotor
  • replace fuel filter
  • replace air filter
  • change oil
  • adjust timing and base idle speed
  • adjust fuel mixture (if available)
Cheers

1997 mercury villager i have spark and fuel,changed wires,cap,rotor,and plugs.the car ran good yesterday,moved it and went to go somewhere last nite and turns over but dosent start.


could be distributor. remove cap and rotor and slotted wheel. look for brown dust covering optical sensor from bad bearing. If yes, replace distributor. It triggers spark and fuel injection.

Car wont start


Did you change the spark plugs one wire at a time or did you pull all the wires off an then changed the plugs? If you put the spark plug wires back on wrong this will cause some of the problems you are facing. Get a $20 manual from you parts store and it will give you the diagram and steps to put the wires on correctly. good luck and get some help from a neighbor who understands car repair.

Check engine light


did you overheat the vehicle?..if oil is on one plug severely you may have mechanical issue (rings/valve stems) leaking into cylinder...get diagnostic compression test and leak down and scope electrical secondary system and advise me results
