Customer Question
I have a 2009 suzuki...
I have a 2009 suzuki sx4 my check engine light came on the guy at AutoZone said the code was the speed senser. Where is the speed senser I this car is it possible for me to fix with out taking the car somewhere? My mechanic doesn't work on this kind of car. The problem im having is sometimes usually when its cold and i havent used the car in a few hours when i put the car in drive it doesnt go but the rpms go from below 1 when in neutral to 2 the car sounds as if i an steping on the gas in neutral. If i drop the car into 3rd or lower it will move forward then i can put it into drive.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

  1. Do you know the code number that was stored? There are more than one speed sensors on the vehicle.

It is possible the transmission is slipping and causing this sensor fault not the other way around.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.

I'm only paid from the deposit you've made when you rate 3,4, or 5 stars.

Follow up/Reply as many times as needed before or after rating.

Hello sorry for not responding right way. I do not know what code it was giving i couldn't find the paper they gave me. It seems to have stopped doing what out was doing since it got a little warmer out. I am not sure how to tell if it would be the transmission starting to go. Can you maybe show me where the speed sensor in the transmission would be or is there further testing i can have done to check on the sensor and the transmission in general even when the light isn't on?

Is there anyway you can get it scanned again so I am giving you accurate info rather than educated guessing. Saving us both time and money getting to the bottom of this.

I have a question about my 2007 Audi A6. I sell used cars
I sell used cars and repair a lot of stuff, but this Audi is out of my league. I have codes for failing high pressure fuel pump. Not sure if the code is related, but the issue is when I am going highway speeds, and presss on the gas a bit harder, say when you are passing a car, the engine just revs high and I continue at the same speed. I am able to slowly work my speed up but cannot accelerate quickly. After some research I am hoping it is just the high pressure fuel pump and maybe also the cam follower underneath the HPFP, but I really don't know. … read more
