Question about 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4WD

1 Answer

Our Suzuki Grand Vitara runs fine most of the time, but will then start bunny hopping like it's running out of fuel. When the car slows to turn a corner - it stalls. Fuel filters have been checked by mechanic, some sensors were replaced, and now the EGR Valve has just been reaplaced and it's still not working! The mechanic can't work it out...what hope do we have? Please help.

    Well.... we have now fixed it. Our EGR valve was replaced ( we only got charged $420 ) but when the got the car back it still wasn't fixed. It was a wire that leads to the EGR valve. The same wire attaches to the sensors apparently.



    Our mechanic took the EGR valve back off and refunded us the cost and then charged a hundred buck for his time finding the wire issue.



    If yours is not the wire, if it is the EGR valve, then that problem is usually caused by Carbon build up. You could ask your mechanic to take the valve off and soak it in the bath (this is what my mechanic did) he soaked it over night and cleaned off all the carbon then put it back on. If it had been the valve that was the issue - this would have fixed it he reckons.



    If you need more info - let me know. We live in the Camden area. If you are around here I could give you my mechanics name. But I hope that helps you :-)

I have a 2006, and I was just advised that it is the EGR valve, which cost 624.24 to replace. It is not a warranty item. Do you have any knowlege if this is an ongoing problem.

Would a faulty electric fuel pump relay be the reason there is no power going down to the fuel pump in a 2002 suzuki grand vitara 2.0 rhz diesel engine


To test fuel flow, have a 2nd person stand over air filter (air filter housing open) with a can of starting fluid in one hand. Don't give any throttle, then 2nd person gives 1-second squirt into air filter while you're turning starter motor (no throttle). When engine catches, immediately give one third to one half throttle. Just before it dies, 2nd person should give another short squirt of starting fluid to keep engine from dying. If throttle won't keep engine running and only starting fluid keeps it running, then yes, no fuel is going through fuel lines. Either its a fuel pump issue or maybe there's restriction because of clogged dirty fuel filter. If it starts but runs rough and has black exhaust smoke, then its clogged or dirty fuel injectors.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine


what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

Fuse keeps blowing!


The fuel injection fuse should also power the injectors. If the fuse is blowing, I would think one of the injectors has shorted to ground.
Have you checked them ?
