Suzuki Verona: I have a 2004 suzuki verona that i have changed

This answer was rated:

I have a 2004 suzuki verona that i have changed the transmision and the TCM with no luck of getting the hold light to quit flashing. took it to the dealer today and they told me that it was low on fluid, cannot get it to take any more thru the fill hole on the side please Help
Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help get your problem resolved. The hold lamp comes on when transmission control module detects a problem, so module should have a diagnostic code stored in it. Do you know what code your getting? Thanks

Dan the dealer told me that there was no codes for the trans, but did have a vac leak on the motor.
I have hooked up my scan tool and I only get P1171, P1174, P0171 and P0174

These codes could also be related to the hold light so I would deal with those codes before worrying about the hold light. Have you done anything to try and resolve those codes? Thanks

These are the 0 2 sensor correct or could it be a vac leak

It could be a few things...How does it run under acceleration and at idle? Thanks.

runs great under acceleration but on idle when cold like crap when warm up it smooths out

This most likely means you have a vacuum leak. When engine is cold spray starting fluid around gaskets such as intake gasket, throttle body gasket, vacuum lines, ect to see if idle changes if so look for a leak in that area. Let me know if you have questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. You can reply to this answer at any time without additional fee's if you run into problems. Thanks.

Dan, Sorry I havent gotten back to you for awhile but I have tried the starting fluid, no leaks showed up. Im still lost at this whole thing of the flashing hold light.

What engine do you have? Thanks
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Dan it would be a 2.5L

Replace the PCV valve and check pcv hose and elbow for leaks. If your sure there are no vacuum leaks then replace the mass airflow sensor. Let me know how it goes or if you run into questions. Thanks.
