Question about 2000 Suzuki Vitara

1 Answer

Help me please

My Vitara Vibrates just above Idle and worse under a load. I took it to a mechanic and he changed the timing chains, tensioners and guides. Then he replaced to motor mounts with aftermarket parts. The problem still is not fixed. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix it.

It could be a problem with miss firing. if it vibrates, one cylinder could be not firing and specially with a load.

try to check you spark plugs and replace if possible.

Recently did engine overhaul but the timing chain gets loose after a few km drive and starts making noise nissan z24 single chain


the nissan z24 has a chain guard on either side of the chain
facing the chain the guide on the left is the chain guide and the one on the right is a guide as well it is a straight guide and when fitted should protrude slightly above the block face
it is held on the block by 2 bolts
there is also a small guide separate and above the adjuster bolted with one bolt in the head
the chain tensioner is below the lh guide and the bolts are tensioned to 53-89 inch pounds

Timing chain was replaced on 99 model v6 suzuki vitara 20000 ks ago but the the number one tensioner was not released properly because plastic retainer was not removed have stripped down and released...


It may have stretched, but you would have known if it had stretched more than the tensioner could make adjustment for at the time the front cover was off. When you say "left bank", are you meaning the LH bank when you look into the engine bay (which is actually the RH bank), or do you mean the LH bank as in the LH side of the car? As it sounds like only the main chain was replaced initially, my thinking is that the 2 other chains and tensioners also have some wear. The RH tensioner is the only one you could possibly get an extra click out of the ratchet without pulling the entire front cover off again. You do have to remove the RH rocker cover, and with a fabricated "hook" pull the tensioner block upwards. Listen for a click (or clicks) and make sure there is no slack on the top of the chain between the sprockets. This tensioner can be starved of presurised oil if the engine is sludgy, and doing the above doesn't solve the blockage but will quieten that particular problem. Anything else will require the timing cover to come off again.

Timing chain noise on nissan altima 2005 change oil for syntetic 5 w 30 and it got worse before did it only when cold now is doing it at all the times


The timing chaing noise is very common on almost all v6 nissan engines. There is a significant difference for the maxima's though.

Timing chain noise is very common and it is the result of the secondary timing chain tensioners. They often stick and put too much tension on the chain and the plastic guides for the tensioner wear down to metal and that is the noise you hear.

At Nissan, I have performed this replacement many times and I suggest you take it to the dealership to have it fixed.

Eninge knock with a known cam gear problems.


i had the same problem. had a knocking on the engine and let the vehicle sit until i had time to look for the problem. my unknowing mom took the car without permission and the car broke down on her. as it would turn out the upper timing guide rail broke off and damaged the cam gears and broke the upper timing chain along with damaging both the right and left lower chain guides, and the tensioner was also damaged. i would recommend that u inspect the lower chain to make sure that everything is good.

1994 toyota pickup 4wd 22re hesitation and stalling


When the timing chains stretch( and they do!) they can cause the 22re to stumble intermittently. Have trouble starting, misfiring, and even some trouble codes But first check your engine for codes You can do this by jumping TE1 and E1

If you have codes we can go from there.
You should pull your valve cover and check you timing chain tension, it should be very tight and not loose. if it is loose it is most likely time for a new chain and/ or tension and guides. I always replace them as a kit. Keep in mind that if the chain is worn it will get progressively worse until the engine will not run or the chain will wear in to the water galleys behind the water pump on the timing chain cover. sorry man.
