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.

tnx 4 using fixya,

2001 suzuki vitara timing chain rattle.is this common and can it be fixed by changing the small chain tensioner


It shouldn't rattle , it may have stretched a bit over time or the tensioner has moved. Yes tighten it up a bit but if the car is or starts to miss a bit you'll need a new timing chain. I wouldn't put it off if I were you.

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.

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )

Good Luck , I hope this helps.

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.
