My Summer Car – Build a Satsuma car, engine, suspension and connect wires

January 11, 2022 1 By Games-Manuals

In this guide, you will find the process of building a Satsuma car in My Summer Car along with the bolt sizes. The guide is complete and constantly updated. Prefer a video tutorial? You will find it in this guide.

First steps and necessary items

  • Before you start building a car, check the guide on Start the game – do what is described there first.
  • The nuts on the lining/linkage parts must be tightened/unscrewed using flat wrenches (spanner set)
  • Before building a car, take the battery and connect it for charging
  • The video tutorial can be found at the bottom of the guide


  • Crankshaft -> block
  • Main bearings (x3) – 2x9mm
  • Pistons (x4) – 2x7mm
  • Head gasket -> block
  • Cylinder head – 10x7mm
  • Adjust valves – screwdriver (you can do it after building the car and starting the engine)
  • Rocker shaft – 5x8mm – to properly adjust the rocker shaft, scroll down to the end (20 times) then scroll up 7 times (repeat on each valve). Badly adjusted valves make a ticking sound
  • Rocker cover – 6x7mm
  • Camshaft – 2x5mm (hole on left side of engine)
  • Camshaft gear – 1x10mm – The camshaft gear must be correctly positioned if it goes wrong your engine will be seriously damaged. If after starting the engine you hear a metallic knock, it will mean that you have set the gear position incorrectly.
  • Timing chain
  • Timing cover – 6x6mm
  • Water pump – 5x7mm
  • Water pump pulley – 4x7mm
  • Crankshaft pulley – 1x11mm
  • Headers – 5x8mm
  • Carburator – 4x8mm
    Airfilter – 2x6mm
  • Alternator – 1x7mm, 1x10mm, screwdriver – tighten the screws first, then loosen the alternator by hand, put on the Alternator belt and pull it back (to the end, then two turns of the mouse wheel down). If the alternator belt squeals after starting the engine, it is too loose.
  • Engine plate
  • Starter – 2x7mm
  • Flywheel – 6x7mm
  • Clutch pressure plate -> clutch cover plate
  • Clutch disc -> cover plate
  • All Clutch components for Flywheel – 6x6mm
  • Oilpan – 8x7mm, 1x13mm
  • Gearbox and then Inspection cover – 6x7mm, 1x10mm
  • Drive gear – 7x6mm
  • Distributor – Screwdriver – to properly adjust the distributor, scroll down to the end and then scroll up 27 times before tightening the screw
  • Spark plugs (x4) – you need to tighten with a sparkplug wrench/socket
  • Fuel pump – 2x7mm
  • Oil filter – Mouse scroll

To attach the engine to Satsuma, use Motor Hoist (hook the chains onto the engine and tighten the screws 2x10mm).

Suspension, chassis, body, interior

  • Sub frame – 4x10mm
  • Steering rack – 4x9mm
  • Steering column – 2x8mm
  • Wishbones (x2) – 2x10mm
  • Spindles (x2) – 1x12mm
  • Struts (x2) – 4x9mm, 3x10mm
  • Steering rods (x2) – 1x12mm

Now you need to move the engine to the front of the car (you need to aim well so that the screws appear) and tighten – 3x11mm

If you screwed the engine to the subframe, take Electrics and screw it to the vehicle body – 2x8mm

*Don’t worry now about the wiring and battery shown in the picture – the screenshot was taken after the car was completely built

  • Disc brakes (x2) and then Halfshafts (x2) – 3x9mm, 1x14mm
  • Now you need to adjust the steering rod (x2) so that the car goes straight – 1x14mm

Turn until it stops turning (wheel, steering rod), then turn exactly 60 times in the opposite direction

  • Trail arms (x2) – 2x12mm
  • Drum brakes (x2) – 1x14mm
  • Coil springs (x2)
  • Shock absorbers (x2) – 1x12mm, 2x6mm
  • Wheels (x4) – 4x13mm
  • Fuel strainer – 1x8mm
  • Dashboard – 2x10mm (one bolt in glove box)
  • Dashboard meters – 2x6mm (glove box)
  • Clock gauge – 2x7mm
  • Radio
  • Steering wheel – 1x10mm
  • Gear stick – 3x6mm
  • Gear linkage – 3x5mm
  • Clutch master cylinder – 1x9mm, 2x8mm
  • Brake master cylinder – 1x9mm, 2x8mm
  • Clutch lining – 2x7mm
  • Brake lining – 11x7mm (6xline nuts,1xbolt in the engine, 4xwheel – at each wheel)
  • Handbrake – 4x8mm, 1x5mm
  • Radiator – 4x7mm
  • Radiator hoses (x3) (You need to screw clamps (5 in total) – use a Screwdriver)
  • Fuel tank pipe
  • Fuel tank – 7x11mm, 1x12mm (fuel lining)
  • Exhaust pipe – 3x7mm
  • Exhaust muffler – 1x7mm
  • Front seat (x2) – 4x9mm
  • Rear seat – 2x9mm
  • Car Light Bulb to Headlight
  • Headlights (x2) – 2x7mm
  • Rear lights (x2)
  • Bootlid – 4x6mm
  • Hood – 4x6mm
  • Back panel or subwoofer panel
  • Doors (x2) – 4x10mm
  • Fender (x2) – 5x5mm
  • Grille – 2x6mm
  • Bumpers (x2) – 2x8mm
  • Hubcap (x4)
  • Mudflap (x4)
  • Battery

Now refill the car fluids (brake/clutch oil, engine oil, coolant)


Before connecting anything with a wiring mess, remember to disconnect the battery from the power supply – otherwise you may die. You can’t connect the wires badly, so even if you walk and spam the F key, you don’t have to worry about doing something wrong.

The hardest part of building a car, i.e. an electrician, is ahead of you. Sometimes you will have to connect the cables to the same place several times. There are several places in the car where the wiring harness connectors are located – it is from them that you need to connect the electrics of individual elements:

List to connect:

– To the battery (negative and positive terminal):

  • Starter – you must unscrew the bolt (1x7mm) before connecting. In second place, after connecting the wires you need to tighten it (1x5mm)

– Regulator:

  • Alternator

– Headlights harness connector:

  • Headlight right and left (take off the headlights 2x7mm – first remove the Grille – 2x6mm)
  • Marker light (you won’t have them at the beginning of the game)
    Main harness connector

– Main harness connector:

  • Battery
  • Electrics
  • Radiator
  • Regulator

– Rear harness connector:

  • Fuel tank
  • Rearlight left and right

– Fusebox

  • Dashboard (gauges, ignition, hazard, lights)

– Radio harness connector:

  • Radio
  • Amplifier (you won’t have them at the beginning of the game)

– Dash harness connector:

  • Dashboard (wipers, headlights, extra gauge, fuel mixture gauge)

– Amplifier:

  • Radio
  • Subwoofer left and right

Finally, you need to connect the battery (two clamps, start with the plus (red)) – the first start of the car may take up to 30 seconds, this is normal if the fuel pump is in poor condition.
