Newly cleaned IAC/ISC for my 98 sidekick G16B, 1.6, 16V, Philippines. OBD1 or OBD2 ? Thanks in advance.
YOUR car, Op is a air density MPI engine?, why do others with TBI SPEED density 8v post help, your cars EFI is 100% opposite, in design and function.
fiddling the wrong screws, hot and cold is , well, crazy.
The topic is G18B
right? start your own 8v posts. please. hijackers...
the car has 2 devices that vary by COLD temp's.
the IAC (thermal , is open some cold , more some, the more cold) if very cold RPM can hit 2000.
the ISC does too. but the ECT tells ECU the water temp and controls
all RPM , after about 150F(spec, is 158F, 150 is reality) and above. The RPM goes down fast after 150F water temp, regardless of out door temps. !
so post a thermal question?
my car is xxxx rpm dead cold and then xxxx at about 150f coolant? is this normal?
then WINDS Down to 800 hot. as bex has posted 1000s of times.... here.....
or post the cold start ambient , or night temps. if stating at 6am. (the block can be way colder in them morning then ambient...)
1000 hot is wrong if A/C is OFF.
the A/C sends a command to the ECU to go to 1000.
800 is set with the bleed screw hot. (never touch the throttle stop screw ever)
never touch the bleed cold
and key hands off the ISC 5mm hex screw. (that is only for fixing a broken ISC !!!)
the OP? i have 1 question, is this car OBD2 compliant
, if if yes, why not buy a real scan tools and stop guessing?
12mph is a HARD fail..
and on OBD2 very rare to ever see 12mpg..... (ill assume you know how to measure MPG)
post cars VIN TAG so we can help you fix a PHIL car and not get bad advice from to others that never saw a PHIL car.? or have no idea how cars vary by country. !!
when you open the hood, and look up ?,do you see the white huge tag? with a vacuum map and country compliance words?
then look at the fire wall? do you see that body tag on the fire wall , next to the battery. says suzuki on it ... and lots of numbers and letters. all so very important
to diagnosis and ordering parts x10.
this tag tells a mechanic, what parts are in your car, and how it works, (if still stock , is it?
It NOT a TBI, maybe MPI or CARB. (some countries run carbs up to 2001 and beyond, can you ID a carb. if not send a photo of engine or the BODY tag. OR vin.
you might also get your cars ECU part number , for even better help.. (Hidden on to of case, sadly) ECU is behind left front speaker.
why not post a photo of your engine. or a link to it posted anywhere on earth.
amazing HIJACKS and odd questions ...... gee, not all kicks are the same.... not hardly world wide......
start you own posts with full car spec, and engine photo.
or full VIN, or full body tag, as APPLICABLE.
Kart, what Vitara? the E24? G16B , with MPI, with OBD2, or OBD1. or what?
I promise answers get way better, with that wink:
i see you have mpg posts back to JUNE
here is a car from E24 Australia a v6 ( this tag tells me what it has)
here is an old 16B ,note? missing year.? (must be year encoded in chassis number?)
please change your SIG
98 sidekick G16B, 1.6, 16V, Philippines.
98 sidekick G16B MPI (if true), 1.6, 16V, Market code (there is no phil codes) so what is your market code) tranny 3or4sped, doors, and A./C of if have it.
98 sidekick G16B MPI , 1.6, 16V, market #24?, 4sp? , A/C? + P/S ? doors how many doors???
the door count changes the wiring !
the last 2 digits of the TAG bottom , is MArket.
if you have this above right knee it is OBD2 I think your car is OBD1 but could be wrong. (I ASK YOU SO WE CAN SAVE A FORTUNE ON PARTS AND LABOR )

you have huge postings for just one car.
and 1 problem
I vote to start over and lets get your SIG right so others can see with it is....
