    What does it take to get Max off my back...he has fucked with me ever sense he couldn't tolerate me putting a locker in this 2wd. Surly you two can see that its Bex that is so petty...she going to have the last word no matter what and she is the first one to tell somebody they don't know what there talking about. I don't know how the pecking order works on one of these forums but you must be able to understand why people get a little pissed off. You don't need to respond and I do see what a bad spot you mods are in but just saying!!!

    I suspect that after a good start, when the thermostat opens and the hot coolant passes by the various sensors, the signals are sent to the ECM and then other signals are sent back to the various solenoid valves or to the Emission controls and then I get the problem..I also suspect that it is vacuum related due to the fact that I can put a good driving load on the car and it seems to work fine and develop good power... until I have to put the clutch in or slow and stop at a stop sign and then it goes back to an idle condition (ie. no strong vacuum, no high RPM) and it dies. I have noticed that the Vapor Canister does NOT have the Canister Purge solenoid downstream in the line...it is missing. And the owner before me did not replace the Catalytic Converter...it too is missing...however this is a '90 Tracker and it has no sensor down at the Catalytic Converter...according to the book.

    90 Tracker Dies when Thermostat Opens - HELP - Who can solve the mystery?

    Hi Fordem, you helped me before and seemed to know right where to look ...maybe you or someone you know could help me with this problem. Thanks

    '90 Tracker, 8V, 5speed, Starts on 1st try every time, idle is perfect (1550 then drops to 800), BUT when thermostat opens (about 2.5-3min after start) then the idle gets rough, and if left in idle condition, the car will sputter and die. BUT If you drive out and put a load on the car and drive it consistently, you detect NO PROBLEM...until you come to a stop sign, and the car returns to idle...then it dies and will not start again until it cools to a closed thermostat condition (10-15min. later).

    hi you posted about this, how do you stop oil entering the spark plug housing. i got about half inch in mine. many thanks for any info cheers.
    On these engines a leaking valve cover gasket will get oil on the outside of the engine, not where the plugs are, however, a leaking plug tube O-ring is a different matter - that will, depending on how bad it is, allow the plug tube to slowly fill with oil - but - you end up with oil on the outside of the plug, the metal shell, the insulator, and the coil pack.

    That Nitto Tire thing is back on the forum again. You cannot post to it, and at the bottom it says that it is from Post Release, and that Suzuki Forums is a member of Post Release. It's about giving away free tires, and they want all sorts of info. I have copied the link to it:

    Hi Fordem,
    I was wondering if you know of a source for wheel flares for a 1999 Suzuki Vitara 3door? I am willing to look anywhere in the world.
    Thanks
