2000 Suzuki Esteem. What size is the bottom alternator mounting bolt on it?

lost it? or just stipped out it is metric for sure 8mm or 10 or 12. all I do is measure it but not if lost USA car? all dealers ended new cars sales here and only 2 parts sales stores here. so parts are hard to get but not bolts. a shop finding this and lost uses spare bolts in a abox metric to find a tread match. then with the KNOWN length next. the main long bottom hinge bolt.? lost is super rare to lose.

2002 Suzuki XL-7 O/D off light doesn't come in when pressing over drive switch on gear selector

check fuses the OD lamp fails of the transmission fails and some suzuki cars do not allow OD in 4wd, , is this car 4wd featured. the OD may flash too for transmission errors. you must scan the PCM (tcm inside) to see the reason why. but put transfer case in to 2wd. the operators guide covers this, for sure if 4wd car and chapter named the same.

Starter spins but wont

HUH??? The electrical circuit is working and you think there is a blown fuse?
NO! there is a MECHANICAL problem with your starter like a broken bendix or a chewed-up flywheel. You need to remove your starter motor and inspect the teeth on your flywheel. Look through the starter hole and turn the engine by hand so you can inspect the teeth all the way around. I usually mark the flywheel with a marking pen before I start turning it so I can tell when I have gone all the way around. If the teeth are all in decent condition, replace the starter. If you find any broken/damaged teeth, you need to pull your transmission and replace the flywheel. (AND probably replace the starter anyway.)

Tar leak under dash board

Tar like substances are used lots of places on cars, such as around AC hose ports in the firewall, to seal the windshield, sound proofing, rust proofing, etc.
What you need to discover is why is now moving?
I would assume it is because perhaps something is hotter?
Is the exhaust manifold or catalytic converter hotter than usual or has heat shielding the the engine compartment come loose?

1996 Suzuki Vitara with auto transmission.

A/t 96 vit. hot and gold engine;/trans both? slow upshift. the most common is this.:
  1. TV cable to box is jammed at any point of cable or kinked.
  2. low pump pressure in the box or filter in box pan clogged.
  3. scanning the TCM shows errors ignored? oops
  4. the OD lamp flashing odd , means TCM errors. so get them.
  5. normal is the shift lever, rocker switch (?N?P?) normal or power shift mode, power shift mode delays shifts for sure. so switch it back.
  6. internal transmission leaks can cause #2
  7. low (super) low tranny ATF (done hot,in park and engine running never overfill any box or use the wrong ATF. ask. first or read the glove box guide (IIRC,Dexron 3 to max #). RTM manual,
  8. if TCM sees speed error from speed sensors ,the VSS sensor at rear of tranny reads slow, the shifts will be late. speedsensors

2002 Suzuki XL7 - DRL headlights won't come on - not fuses

yes heat is always a cause, heat wrecks all things many makes faster (electric) DRL love to fail is this up in canada, , it is not law USA to have it. he law here ended 2010 on DRL junk.(proven not to work) many cars have a DRL module and the pins on it look burnt and is bad. ALL DRL on suzuki seen by me to 2000 did that no sure 02 DRL has relays to fail or even hand brakes switch too. the 2 rules on DLR are hand brake must turn off and lamps on, no kind of brake failure allowed, and no GEN?/ALT/Batteyr lamp failure in cluster this last bit of logic allows driving further DLR off, and dead alternator in car.. or bad relays. H.L . . .

2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara diesel cut out whilst driving, didn't restart for 10 mins, then drove for 15 before cutting out again.

1.9 L F9Q I4 turbo-diesel( none in USA) DDIS stalls. has many causes but lost diesel pressure. fuel filters packed up. (even air filter too) in your mind pretend filter 99 % packed up. see? dont need Glow plug to drive a hot engine. start yes, and when warm engine they turn off. not needed now. filters top my list for sure fuel The F9x is the direct injected Diesel version and also features an 8-valve SOHC configuration. high pressure injector pump or its regulator bad. intermittent or weak pump. so scanning the PCM finds not one DTC error.? buy scan tool and scan it at stall?
