2009 Suzuki SX4 air intake pipe reattachment
I opened the hood of our 2009 Suzuki SX4 to change the oil and I was greeted by an intake pipe that was disconnected and just laying there doing nothing. The air filter is actually integrated into the engine cover to the left, so the engine was still sucking in filtered air. I can't see how this could have just happened on its own, so someone else in the office must have forgotten to put it back after poking around in there. Or maybe they thought they'd found some cheap performance trick. I doubt it. With this pipe off all the intake comes from underhood, so it's hot. The pipe's job is to bring in colder, denser air from outside. No wonder the Zuk (an AWD automatic) felt slower than usual yesterday.
