  1. Knocking

    1G (2001-2006) XL-7
    Yep! You've got a lot of little Gremlins hiding out in various places there. 😄 DO start with tiding up the wiring and connections though. Run a can of SeaFoam thru the fuel tank / system. A good maintenance step and injector cleaner it is. Sitting for 10 days isn't all that great a deal...
  2. Knocking

    1G (2001-2006) XL-7
    Assuming an XL-7 V-6 here. High beams plus your added lighting causes an additional ampere loading to the circuit, thus a greater effort (output from the generator) to compensate. The belt that drives the generator may be slipping or the tensioner is not up to par. Either case can produce a...
  3. Where can I buy the left case plate and 6 screws for my 1999 Suzuki Esteem manual transmission

    HeliCoil it. ;) Or refit / machine for the next size up screw.
  4. Where can I buy the left case plate and 6 screws for my 1999 Suzuki Esteem manual transmission

    The thread spec is here... M6 x 18mm, 11mm Head, 6mm Allen, 1mm Thread - Suzuki - 09120-06014 https://www.wemoto.com/parts/picture/sz-09120-06014 And after further thought, if the plate is machined to accept countersunk screws, then a conventional bolt is not the answer for it will not secure...
  5. 96 x-90 cooling issue

    Sidekick/Escudo/Vitara/ Geo/X-90 &Tracker(’89-’98)
    Do you mean the opposite...like overheating maybe? 😕 Stop-Leak additives are band-aid fixes IF they work at all. Additionally they tend to clog the cooling passages within the radiator and heater core. Does the vehicle smoke out of the tailpipe? There is good information under "Finding and...

    Would bolt HEADS offer a protrusion / interference problem in your case over countersunk fasteners? :unsure: That would be the key here.
  7. Rebuilt motors??

    2G (1999-2005) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I got lucky while searching for replacement front seats. My cloth covered ones had over 195K on them and were thread bare in places. Located a set on e-Bay in LEATHER several states away (but near my son) on a privately owned GV Limited. He was able to inspect them and also learn of the 2.5L...

  9. SE5F-A Manual 5 speed transmission repair

    We sorted out this part quandary earlier in another thread... ;) https://www.suzuki-forums.com/threads/where-can-i-buy-the-left-case-plate-and-6-screws-for-my-1999-suzuki-esteem-manual-transmission.266626/#post-1546622
  10. Power door actuators!

    Sidekick/Escudo/Vitara/ Geo/X-90 &Tracker(’89-’98)
    They are universal in nature, require only a small void area in which to reside and you'll need to be a bit handy to install them. A couple of how-to installation videos...

    Have your purchasing source verify the item part numbers with regard to your VIN number, that way you can't go wrong. And as far a sources go, see this thread and the list of additional Dealers that can often get you what is needed, particularly since you have diagrams and part numbers at the...
  14. Power door actuators!

    Sidekick/Escudo/Vitara/ Geo/X-90 &Tracker(’89-’98)
    When needing to replace mine, I found it a whole lot less expensive and WAY easier to just install aftermarket solenoids right to the existing lock linkage rod. They connect to the same two existing +/- wires as well! 😉...
  15. Intermittent oil light

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Potentially, yes! IF the metal shield contacts an insulation-less sender wire portion (short circuits to ground), it will illuminate the oil pressure light. ;)
