    I would first confirm that I actually needed a headgasket, rather than doing all this work on 'I think I have one'. There are ways to test the coolant for exhaust gas, checking the oil for coolant, etc. Presumably, you have overheated the car....If so, there is a possibility that the head is warped and needs to be checked and/or re-milled, so no, a tear down would be in your future.

    Can I ask you some advise, you seem to really know your Suzuki's. Mate I have a 92 Suzuki Vitara with the G16b engine and I think I have a blown headgasket, Is it possible to change the head gasket without taking apart the head? i.e. all valves etc? Cheer mate hope to hear from you soon?

    Hi Bex
    My sidekick now runs.
    The timing belt was installed wrong by the previous owner.
    Thank you.

    Nope, most certainly not. The ECU for the 95 governs spark - the 89 has a stand alone distributor. A totally different animal. Spec out your 95 - the ECU is different for TBI, MPI, manual tranny, auto tranny, California emissions, etc. Most of them are not interchangeable. The safest thing to do is to get the model number of the ECU that came with your car, and get the same model. If you have a current ECU that is not working, normally it is only 3 capacitors that need to be changed - a $5.00 fix - so give more info as to your problem, or are you just looking for a spare??

    Will an EGR off a '89 Tracker fit a '95?

    I have the EPC and can look up the part numbers to see if they are the same. The rule of thumb is making sure that the number of doors on the donor is similar to your car. And your 98 Chevy is a bit of a transition year. Is the 92 also 2 door? Presumably that is the 3 speed auto. Are you? More info needed.

    Bex I hate to bother you but I'm really needing some info on my broken bell housing. I have a 98 2dr 1.6/auto. I found a housing from a 92 model at a salvage yard but its still between the tranny/ I can't compare them. He said he would sell it to me for $40 but I'm not sure it will interchange. Do you know if it will? Thanks

    HI Bex,

    I have a suzuki sidekick sport that I recently bought. It came without a thermostat so I decided to install one. After installing it, the car began to overheat. The lower hose was not even hot after I ran the car, but the temperature on my gauge read almost HOT.
    Please note also: I have just remove the thermostat from my suzuki, and it does not get hot, it stays above the "C" reading.
    IT only gets hot when there is a thermostat. I bought a thermostat that opens at 190 F but I dont know if i should get one that opens at 160 F.

    My car is a suzuki sidekick 1997 sport, 1.8 Automatic. Please help
