2002 Suzuki XL-7


Asked by Dec 02, 2012 at 11:58 AM about the 2002 Suzuki XL-7 STD 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Suzuki XL-7.  I had to change my alternator belt and battery.  After I changed them, I can't
get my car to run properly.  When I start the car, the car doesn't hold the idle; it dies.  I basically have to
treat my car (automatic transmission) like a manual.  For example, when I come up  to a stop sign, I'd
have to put the car into neutral, rev the engin (so it doesn't die) and when it's my turn to go, switch back
to drive.  Please help

Look to see if you accidentally disconnected a small hose in the engine compartment.

That happens when the battery gets disconnected. The cars computer has to re learn the combustion settings.....it always happens to me....I have ro drive it like until i do some off and on cycles for the car to go stable again.
