1994 Suzuki Sidekick JX 4WD convertible hardtop 1.6L 8V A/T, P/S, A/C and 1995 Geo Tracker donor
169,000Judging from the amount of wear (or lack thereof) on the gas peddle, I would guess fairly few actual driving miles on the engine. What's on the odometer?
In any case -- YOU LUCKED OUT, FOR SURE!!!
Flush that transmission and replace the filter. I have one that had neither forward or reverse and a flush/change brought some life to it.Hey Bex, after washing years of crud off and unloading parts piled in the boot; I saw it’s better than my driver. I plan to put it on Jack stands, replace battery and service tranny (fluids/filter) and see about replacing the missing left front CV shaft.
There’s a tow bar welded up front, no doubt leftover from it’s half life behind an RV. Very little wear on brake pedal rubber or interior.
She may very well become the daily driver and my 8V Suzuki going to some other cult member. Time will tell.
That must be why I couldn’t find a TCM! 😏ThanksI would assume that your 94 2 door Sidekick does not have the electronic 4 speed auto tranny, but rather the 3 speed mechanical one. If so, there will be no TCM to disconnect. Shifting, etc., is all mechanical. You can check the vacuum modulator (should be the purple stripe one) by removing the vacuum hose to it - it should be dry.
Was there any tranny fluid in the vehicle before you added the 3 quarts? Considering that a drain and refill of the tranny is 3 quarts, does that mean you changed the fluid, or there was nothing in it to begin with??
