Default looking for info on 2003/04 SJ Samurai Diesel

i live in portugal, but speak english.
finding info is nearly impossable for me, please help.

the pick up truck has a renault 1.9 Diesel engine. original paint is white.

i need manuals and other info.

it is for sale, and i want to buy it, but i do not know the value.

also, there is a problem with it slipping into neutral when engine braking in 1 or 2nd gear, regardless of 2wd or 4wd, when on a steep downhill incline, the 4x4 shifter pops into neutral.

thanks.
magnus

Magnus, something like that would be gold here in the US. We never gota diesel version - we had to build out own. Good luck on the info hunt though.

The shifter problem sounds like a bushing gone bad, like the 'shifter sheet' on an older Samurai. Can you get to the shifter tower and check the condition of the internal bushing?

The spain plant was the only one I know of that made the diesel SJ413. I'm pretty sure it was a Turbo 1.9 liter engine. If you don't have a turbo, I wonder what heppend to it?

do not quote me on this, but i think i read somewhere the turbo was a factory option, so there may be some without it... but as i said, dont quote me on that.

The diesels were mainly sold on mainland Europe, maybe there is a Spanish Suzuki forum that could help you. Santana are not very good at releasing manuals, it may be that there isn't one.

I'd check the shifter sheet and also the engine and gearbox mountings, if one has broken then the lever could be hitting on the body. I've heard that there were some non-turbo diesels made, we only got the TD Vitara over here.

Thanks everyone for the info. Unfortunately I am no mechanic and have no clue what all that means. I used to work on my 1971 VW bus often, but i had a couple of manuals to guide me.

Does anyone make an aftermarket guide for these things?

My engine only says 1.9 D, no TD designation.

Great jeep so far, I love it! I think I got a good price at 2700 euros or 3500 dollars.

I googled the phrases you guys tossed at me and came up with all manner of cheap fixes!! thank you.

Magnus

Hi Magnus, Those engines were changed very little from the Renault car format, so a manual for any Renault car that used that engine would be helpful, most likely the engine is like the version used in later versions of the Renault 5 Van? or Renault 17/19 cars early megans. It was a good engine even in non turbo form economical and with fast pickup, it was blighted by noise, it is a 'knocky' engine, but if you like diesels in general like me, you get to learn to love it. I have just bought a Jimny 1.5DDIS and although needing some revs to get it moving (it is only a 1.5litre) once on the move it is smooth fast and economical. (I lived in England until about 2 months ago when I emigrated to Eastern Poland) I used to have similar problems in that you could often get a manual for the petrol (Benzine) version of a car, but then had to buy another manual for the diesel engine.
