#305 of 344 dasboard vibration
May 07, 2009 (12:38 am)
Hi, Im from the Philippines and I recently acquired a pre-owned vitara, 98 model auto trans. My concerns is that on idle speed, my dashboard vibrates terribly. It feels like your driving a worn out diesel engine truck.
What could possibly be wrong? does it have to do with my idling?
Also, the airconditioning is weak. Replaced my expansion valve, condenser and the sysyem cleaned too but its not cold enough. Any advise on what to do, thanks

White exhaust means that water or antifreeze is getting into your cylinders and is likely due to a failed head gasket. Your engine is probably overheating and serious damage is possible if it's not taken care of.

(horrible rotten egg smell ), most probably your catalytic converter is clogged.
#310 of 344 radio not working

#311 of 344 Fuses blowing!! HELP PLEASE!!!
Oct 14, 2009 (4:28 pm)
My lights began to pulsate more than usual and then the blower didn't work. I replace the blower motor less than a year ago , and thought it may be the resistor, so I changed it. That did nothing. Found the "defrost" fuse blown and replaced it and it began to work, but fuse popped after about 5 minutes. Checked the blower switch and it crumbled into pieces, so I unplugged it, put a new fuse in and still it POPPED! Lights got worst so changed the alternator and solved that light problem. Put another fuse in and all seemed good, but after about 10 minutes(you guessed it) POP! The trouble with this is, the same fuse controls the blower switch as well as the auto light feature. Need to fix, cold now and have no heat!! A ny answers????? Not an auto electrician by any means and like everyone else can't afford one either, so any help is appreciated!!!!

Now when we turn the air conditioner on no air just high heat. the little car on dash is blinking and all I have is high heat and no other control of heater or air conditioner. Can you explain and tell me how to fix this problem?

lonestarbob, you could ask on suzuki-forums. Sounds like a trip to the dealer anyway.
