Engine Performance problem
2002 Suzuki Esteem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles
Suzi bogs down when I accelerate hard or go uphill. Loud boggy/ hollow sound from front end. Dealer wants to replace maf AND throttle body for $1000. Ripoff! I cleaned the maf (no improvement, was clean). Disconnecting maf makes performance much worse - so it must be working? Engine light is not on. Seems worse below freezing (i opened hole in air filter box to use warmer compartment air - maybe a little better). Changed IAT sensor. After stopping for 1/2 hr or more, runs perfect for about 1 minute which in my mind rules out fuel, egr, spark problems etc? Dealer ran car with exhaust removed - no improvement.
have the same problem?
