Engine Q&A 1999 Suzuki Esteem

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Esteem? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. It’s just your Esteem firing up its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Suzuki engine sound different? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Suzuki Esteem. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage my Suzuki Esteem engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon. Protect your engine’s performance and efficiency by distancing yourself from these habits.
  • Can I put water in my Suzuki Esteem radiator? It’s not recommended you put water in your Esteem radiator unless it’s an emergency. Under normal circumstances, use a 50/50 mix of water and coolant or a pre-mixed coolant. But, if you need to keep driving while out of coolant, using water is better than driving with an empty coolant reservoir.
  • What can cause the engine in my Esteem to suddenly stop? If your Esteem car engine suddenly stops, it could be due to overheating, low fuel, a faulty ignition system, sensor problems, electrical system trouble, or mechanical issues.
