My 1999 suzuki quadrunner rolls over but won't start?


Shannon, let's get down to the basics; Gasoline engines need fuel, spark and compression. And all three must happen at the correct time. Check compression by removing the spark plug, cranking the engine and holding your thumb over the spark plug hole. Check fuel supply by squirting carb spray into the intake throat while cranking the engine. Check for spark by removing the spark plug, grounding the metal housing and with the wire connected, crank the engine and watch for spark at the tip of the plug. Also, be sure the plug is not fouled and is gapped properly. (Try .025) Happy Trails. Herb

Where is the fuel system shutoff for a 2008 suzuiki forenza sedan 2.0 I replaced the head gasket and opened the trunk without the key and it beeped at me and flashed lights then shut my fuel pump off


is this car fitted with an immobilizer?
if yes the operators guide tells you ever step here.
the PCM decides to run the pump. not you.
immo happy
spark good
crank engine, do you have full fuel pressure cranking, yes, no.?
if no pressure cranking any scan tool will tell you WHY its cutting fuel.
called DTC errors.

What could cause a1991 suzuki samurai to have no fire from a new coil?


no spark from coil directly?
is the cam turning, is the dizzy rotor spinning. ????

check all fuses first. Ig-coil, FI and dome.
then using diagnostic jumper wire or fuse, (as approp)
crank engine look for code 41 o 42.!!!

USA cars , answers only
our cars are all EFI that year.
no engine swaps to Suzuki G16A/B sidekick or tracker engines.!
1: engine cranks
2: no spark
3: The ECu makes spark
the CMP sensor in the DIzzy , (never fails if rotor turns, does rotor turn, if not cam belt igored and now snapped.)
the cam turns. the CMP fires. the ECU takes this CMP signal
and fires the ignitor next to coil and the coil charges, and release and BAM spark.

that is it.
the ECU will tell you when the CMP dies or the Ignitor fails
why not ask it.
1: key on
2: diagnostic jumper in place (flashes 12s for ok)
3: crank engine,for 5sec, not 1 ,not 2.
3: release key not off.
4: see code 41, or 42, BINGO !@!!!!

Car will not start like its not catching fire , i have a 2008 suzuki xl7


old post. but will answer.
the starter only cranks the engine, that is it's only job.
if it cranks robustly (at crank shaft pulley ,see it) then its ok.
250 RPM is typical cranking speed. RPM
no starts are complex.
for any engine Gas, to start you needs 4 things.
  1. ALL FUSE TO EFI GOOD, TEST THEM. CEL glows key on?
  2. full engine compression and crank vacuum 5" HG or more.?>??
  3. Spark , try a fresh tune up with fresh spark plugs. all 6 sparking.?
  4. Fueling , must be right. not flooding , not starving
if spark and engine are good, all engines(most) will start with test fuel.
This one simple test. proves the engine is ok, and spark is ok.
and the fuel system is dead.
these checks , will let is work the 4 systems. that might fail.
this is the classic basics path.
and works 99.% of the time.

exceptions, are clogged melted cat.
or stuck wide open EGR
or ISC stuck closed, (no starting air.) use 10% throttle to prove that.
or flooding, if flooding use super secret unflood mode (opr guide)
hold the throttle (right foot) pedal to the floor, this cuts fueling
and the flooded engine starts, for full time or runs and floods and stalls again.
This is called basics , in all ASE books in print.
RTM.

2008 suzuki jimny wont start Was running ok then


sure , they all ran like new, when new. or yesterday.
but not now. that means it BUSTED.

so check for spark.
if not spark then fix that.
modern cars have EFI, and all EFI cut fuel if the cars ECU brain
even thinks for a moment there is no spark (it can see it?
so spark is 1st. (if engine is good,)
ever give the car a full 60k mile tuneup, (100km)
if not why not?

No spark from ignition coil to start the engine of suzuki vitara16v EFI engine. what is the cause of it


what year? what country? sounds like suzuki G16b engine. is it? or 2.0L?
The reasons are the same basically for G16 or the 2.0L
Both engines have ECU.
Both need good fuses to power ECU and coils.
Both engines need working CMP.
my guess is this is a distributor engien G16b (YOU SAND COIL NOT COILS.)
1: fuses, test the fuses relate to ECM/PCM (3 fuses)
CEL LAMP MUST BE ON KEY ON OR ECU HAS NO POWER.
2: g16B( CRANK FOR 5 seconds), with scan tool connected.
A $50 tool that is indispensable.
P0355 or P340 DTC , bingo, no spark.
or while cranking RPM is dead at 0 RPM.
if all that passes, then check the coil signals. (@ minus term)
The coil has an ignitor in the dizzy and both can go bad.
recap.
power 12v to ECU
CMP working
ECu sees CMP and sends spark to dizzy ignitor.
Ignitor , drives coil, coil makes spark ,engine runs.

Starting Issues


I'd test the battery and make sure you have the correct voltage first. (Most auto stores will do this for free)

But if it's cranking, I'd dig a little deeper..

First, is the gas clean, and new, or did you use "bad gas"? (Gas that's been sitting in a sealed container in your shed/garage etc...)

Next I'd make sure you're getting spark. Pull a plug, hook the wire up, do not touch the plug, and crank the engine/have someone crank it. This works best in a dimly lit garage.

While your plug is out, check for signs of wear that indicate the plugs need to be replaced. Here's a link to assist you in diagnosing spark plug problems: http://www.aa1car.com/library/reading_spark_plugs.jpg

And lastly, make sure you're getting fuel to the carburetor.

If all of these check out, I'd look at the fuel pump next.

MC cranks, but wont start.


You have done good - This is a shot in the dark but if the bike thinks the bike is in gear with the kickstand doen (kickstand relay) the bike will not start - look for a voltage from the kickstand relay (at the kickstand)

Motorcycle wont start


If cranking is slow it could be a sign of a 'near to dead' battery.
When cranking on its battery there is a too low voltage and weak or no sparking.
When jump starting or pushing the bike, there is a good spark and the engines fires up.

Check also the spark plugs! And carburettors cleaniness
