Default What typeof motor do I have

A bit of a intro first......I ama 55 yo retired aussie living in the Valencia/Dumaguete area of Negros island, love the area here and the foods, I bought a suzuki carry van early this year for more than what I think its worth...........long story but I like these little vans, have found a good mechanical service centre here call Aldrich mechanical near Hypermart and will be getting the engine reconditioned next week and have been quoted 15000 piso which I think is quite good.

My question is what kind of motor do I have......the van has 1997 date on the seat belt tag, and is rear engined and fuel injected and t-bar auto and front mounted radiator, hope some body can tell what kind my motor is...6a or 12a.....??

There should be a blue VIN plate inside the body door frame of the driver side door. It should look something like this:

Greetings! On the RIGHT wheel well bubble. Ours in Philippines are left hand drive, not right. 3 cylinders is F6. Ask your mechanic, and make sure he does not hot wire the fan to run all the time. Use Preston coolant, not water please.
If your van has ac, get the condenser washed under the car, tjhat will help a lot in it's cooling. Good luck!

Hello there and thanks for your reply, I found the blue plate inside the right hand side rear slideing door. F6A..thanks for that.

My thermo electric fan is hot wired to run all the time......I am going to speak to my mechanic on monday when I take it to get the motor reconditioned and will get a new water pump, get a thermostat put in and take your advice about getting coolant put in the system.

And maybe get the radiator replaced as the fins dont appear to be all that strong.....if I may ask where does your temp guage sit at normal operating.......?....mine with out thermostat and hot wire fan get up to a little over half and seemsd to stay there.

Default blue plate

Hello again, I have found my blue plate inside the right side slideing door, have put a couple of pics of it, is it strongly advised to put a thermostat back in the system when I get my motor reconditioned next week, and coolant as well.....??

Never saw one (data plate) there before, something new every day.
coolant has anti rust additives. Have it flushed, drain and clean overflow tank, mix 50/50 coolant and bottled water like natures spring.
The thermostat should be there, but we do not get cold weather here, so just make sure it is warmed up good until you can find one.
If yours has fuel injection, fuel filters (metal) are required, and I have not found one in 7 years here. If the hose fits the nipples in the similar sized metal filter, it will work. I think mine is a Toyota brand.

The thermostat is designed to get the engine to normal operating temperature sooner. I can imagine that temperatures in the Philippines ever get below 15C(60F) during even the coldest periods, but I think it is better to have one than not. I believe it uses an 82C(180F) degree thermostat.

Engine coolant has qualities that ensures your engine reaches optimal operating temperature quickly while maintaining a safe cooling temperature all the time. The most beneficial is a 50/50 water-to-coolant mix. Because it can be difficult to determine the actual mix, premixed coolant is available which will not you to measure water and coolant before pouring in. It is important to note that if there's too little water, the coolant won't cool the engine as easily because it's too thick as a solution. The water dilutes the coolant so it flows freely thru the radiator. If there's too much water the heat from the engine will cause the water to evaporate causing your coolant level to go down. This can result in engine overheating.

** ONLY USE DISTILLED WATER!!! **

If using tap water, mineral water, and even bottled drinking water, you run the risk of introducing hard minerals or other contaminants into the cooling system that can harden over time.


newsavedone - Do you happen to know the part number of the fuel filter you are using?

Gambler that EPC site shows yours is in the fuel tank, not the inline one.
I am purely going on what that says, I have no idea

You are correct about the fuel filter being in the tank. You wouldn't happen to know off the top of your head what the fuel pressure should be?
