#430 of 444 What size tires...
Sep 24, 2010 (7:18 am)
I've got a '03 Aerio SX that 'requires' 195/55/15 tires. Does anyone know if you can put a 195/65/15 on the rim and have enough clearance in the wheel well?
I know that the 65 is 10% larger, but it's also cheaper and has a higher milage guaruntee. Not to concerned with the difference in speed ratings 'cause I don't race it or drive over 75mph.

I also have the Aerio SX 03 model, and a 215/50/15 is 0.1% larger in diameter than the 195/55/15 stock tire. Under a really hard turn, you can create some contact with the front tires, but it is not even visible on the front tires. It helps stabilize the rear end and decreases wheel spin under hard acceleration in first gear. I suspect that it costs a tiny bit in gas mileage, but the difference is really tine. If you wish to know the difference between two tire sizes in the p-metric system, go to this java tire calculator:
#432 of 444 2005 Suzuki SX FWD rough idle and intermittent stalling in reverse
Sep 29, 2010 (8:58 pm)
I own a 2005 Aerio Sx, with 69,xxx miles, which seems to enjoy stalling while in reverse (when shifted from park) and has a rough idle. Oddly enough, the issue seems to be alleviated when the AC is on. Any ideas as to what is going wrong?

Hi, my husband was a mechanic for many years. He says that for part of your answer, the not stalling when the A/C is on, is because the idle increases when the A/C is on. He says, and as I think you already know, the bigger question is why is the car idling rough?
Mine idles rough when I am low on oil or in need of an oil change, which is usually the same. Meaning, when I am in need of an oil change, I am also low on oil for some reason. This has been going on since I was in the 60,000 mile range or before even. I have a 2003 Suzuki SX. Ronnie

I have 83,000 miles on my 2006 SX4. I took it to my mechanic and he told me it sounded like piston slap when cold. I took it to Suzuki and they agreed. They reviewed all of my maintenance records ,looked inside the oil pan and found it clean so agreed to a Short block under warranty. Now I believe I have what I would refer to as detonation or Knocking. The dealer said it is normal but admits they hear the noise. Now I am waiting on the District rep to visit. This all less than 1,000 miles since the short Block was installed.
Anyone know of ECU updates or failed Knock Sensors...? Any other experiences with a noise when cold over 2500 RPM? Change the Spark Plug to colder or Hotter plugs? This is my daily driver and I do or have the mantenance done and check the book for each mileage as described. I disagree with changing Anti freeze every 30,000 but I do it;).
#437 of 444 Air Conditioner
Jun 14, 2013 (6:21 pm)
I have a 2003 Suzuki Aerio and love it... however, now that we are in the summer months I use my air conditioner more often or always. When the air conditioner is on and I am sitting at a red light there is a loud squeeling sound. This sound stops when I accelerate or put it in neutral or park. Does anyone know what I should have checked out?

I'm betting on the belt is causing the squeal. A good mechanic should pretty well KNOW right away. Just drive to their garage, and when they come back to the car with you, restart it like you are gonna drive away, put it in gear, foot on the break, he person gets to hear it.

It sounds like the AC compressor pulley, the serpentine belt that drives it (and other things) or a serpentine belt tensioner is ready to go. Late last year, I heard an unusual crying sound from my engine during acceleration. Before I could work out a convenient time to have it looked at, a tensioner seized and the serpentine belt broke. I wrestled with my steering wheel, guiding my ailing, overheating hulk to my grandma's house which was a fortunate 5-10 minutes away from where I ran into trouble.
I thought I had my belt and tensioner components replaced at one point. I was wrong.
