#406 of 436 Re: A/T fluid changes? [carthell]
Feb 14, 2009 (4:29 am)
The only way the fluid was "black" at 89 K would be if you overheated the vehicle engine or ran it low on trans fluid causing the trans to overheat ! !!!!!!!
I have ran MANY cars up to 100 K before changing trans fluid....never had a problem.
As far as them not wanting to touch it...that is just plain STUPID...I don't care who changes the fluid if it is truly "black"....the result will be the same.
I bet you have burnt the transmission up...overheated the bands....thus "black" fluid.
BTW: I now have an 06 with 392K on it...tranny fluid has only been chnaged twice...it is not black now...nor was it ever.
#407 of 436 TSB # And Information
Apr 23, 2009 (6:38 pm)
I have an 06 SX. The Passenger side rear tire wore on the inside. I asked my mechanic to research for a TSB and he found it. It is for 04 - 06 SX. There are serial numbers on it so beware, there are not many which I found strange. My serial # was 2 off from the TSB. MY Suzuki Dealer was a little reluctant but called the factory rep for me. They are performing the TSB no charge. The TSB # is TS 05 11225, date of issue is 11/22/2005. There is a part required for the AWD cars, part #27610-54G00. It is the Viscous Coupling, but the dealer said they are replacing the entire rear drive shaft! The 2 wd requires the Rear Control Rod Assy part # 46300-60G21. There is a new Alignment for the rear, all models.
Hope this helps for anyone who has an isue wth Rear Tire premature wear.

Never mind! I must have pressed the window disable switch. You can tell how much I use that switch. Live and learn.

I don't think the window lock switch on the driver's side affects anything but the rear windows. I'll check my unit tomorrow.

I have a 2003 Suzuki Aerio SX wagon. Up until now we have had no big problems with it. Its a 4 banger automatic with 76,500 miles on the odometer. Its been well maintained and cared for. However, the other day the A/C started doing something strange, the driver side is blowing warm air and the passenger side is blowing cold. I called my local dealership and spoke with an advisor but that was certainly a joke! He tells me that there is no way that could be happening because it the air all comes thru the same hose whether its coming from the heater core or the a/c! Any help on what this might be or what it might take to fix it would greatly be appreciated!

I have a similar post see #346. I bet that you will also have a problem with the heat doing the same thing the side that now blows cold air will blow hot when the heat is on and the side blowing hot will blow cold. I took the car to two different dealers near me spending ~$400 at each. Neither dealer could fix it. I have a theory that one of the vent doors either broke or is out of place. The side that does not work is just blowing outside air into the compartment. In my area (upstate NY) the problem is worse in the winter. I had access to a 4 channel temperature logger and took data on the trip home from work to prove the problem to the first dealer. I complined to Suzuki America and got no help. I was told by them "sir your car has heat".
If you have comprehensive insurance your best bet will be to hit a deer and total the car.
One more note. I have not been able to drive my `03 SX since 1/6/09 when the engine died.(92k miles and still under warranty). I took it to the dealer, they agreed by the sound that the engine was bad and told me they needed ~$300 to pull the pan and head to take pictures for Suzuki for authorization of the engine replacement. I knew then that I was going to get screwed. They told me the engine was bad and that I ran it out of oil, which of course is not true. After the dealer threatend to start charging storage I towed the car home and got a better look at it with a few car friends. Neithe the dealer or Suzuki would say more than the motor was bad. We found that the skirt on the #3 piston was broken and a stationary cam chain guide was broken. I don't see even if the car was run low on oil how it could cause either problem. Suzuki still asserts that it is my problem.
Suzuki will act in bad faith every time. Get rid of your problem car as soon as you can it will only get worse.

I have an 05 that is overheating only when it is idling. If I am driving it down the street there is no problem. Change the thermostat already and did not take care of the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I am stumped here.

It seems likely that your electric fan is not coming on for one reason or another. It could be something as simple as a fuse or relay, or it could be that the fan itself is out.
