How would you check if the water pump for a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick has gone bad?

The easiest way to verify a faulty water pump is by the "weep hole" located on the top of the pump's housing. Next you can verify flow in the cooling system by (be sure the engine is cool)running the engine at idle with the rad cap open. You want to stimulate some cross flow of coolant across the opening at the cap by gently squeezing the upper hose down from the thermostat outlet, after each squeeze you will should see surge and recession of coolant and flow. If the pump is faulty, the bearing squeals like a banshee, as well as coolant leaks from the weephole, high engine temperatures at idle and speed. If your pump is faulty, chances are you will know it, you should replace it very soon as overheating damage can be devastating.

test flow in and out of heater core it may be plugged or need replacing, if it is not plugged up check temp controls, may be stuck in vent or a/c setting.

Check the vaccum lines to tour EGR valve cracked or loose vaccum lines will cause the air intake to suck too much air causing it to surge.

They are both a great phone, but I've had the sidekick 2008 and the sidekick lx, they are fun and I would definitely recommend the sidekick.

My first guess would be that you have a sizable vacuum leak some where... Check to see if you can find any vacuum hoses that have disconnected or that may be cracked or split.

If you wish to purchase a new Suzuki Z400 motorcycle you would need to go to a licensed Suzuki dealership. For used motorcycles, you can check Craigslist or your local motorcycle dealer.

If it is the same plug every time, I would say the plug or wire is grounding out some where. Try replacing the plug the the wire.

If you want to use internet on your Sidekick 08 phone, you would Sidekick Data plan for that.

I read on a forum once that the Suzuki has larger front brakes than the tracker, which, if true would mean a better mountain truck. Other than that I heard most other parts are the same, though this is just from the limited forum hearsay on this topic.

Probably would be in your best interest to check the head gaskets.

Yoshi is Mario's sidekick, not Luigi. Luigi is more of Mario's right-hand man and brother. He can do everything Mario can so Yoshi would fit more in the "sidekick" than Luigi would.

The vin number should be located on the dashboard, drivers side, towards the left. It should be a long metal strip with the numbers engraved on it. If for some reason yours has been removed, check the title of the car or inside the door jams. Hope this helps...

To use internet on Sidekick phones, you would need to register the device for a Sidekick Data plan, as regular data plans do not work on these phones.

The engine will line up, you might be able to fabricate some engine mounts and make it work. I would check with my Suzuki shop and ask them before attempting such a chore.

Was it smoke or steam? You might pull your oil dipstick out to see if there is water in it. It would be a creamy tecture. May be a blown head gasget.

If it has no spark, then could be ignition coil or ignition control module. If spark, then fuel related. Would need to check fuel pressure. If the fuel pump is in the tank then should hear it hum for a few seconds when turning key to on.
