    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

    The valve cover on the 16v will normally say 16v right on it. On one of your posts, I posted a photo of the 8v engine - on the 8v engine, the spark plugs come up at an angle, on the 16v, the plugs come straight up. Look at the photo in the post on the forum - that's the 8v engine.

    Hey, Bex. How do I know which engine I have?

    The label on the hood indicates:

    Engine Displacement 1.6
    Idle Speed 800
    (Plus other stuff)

    But is it 8v or 16V? Do I have to look elsewhere for that?
