SOURCE: removing the clutch

I have done this work and its not that hard. You really need access to a garage lift so you can work under the vechile. You can then remove the gearbox after the exhaust. Remove the shift levers and boots but didn't remove anything from the engine. Only trouble i had was when i put it back together the 4wheel shift didn't go in properly but thats because it moved when we took it out. There is a switch on the side to indcate its posistion, make sure you dont damage it and connect it up after.
I do have some photo's if that will help, e-mail me and if you need anymore help i'll try to be of service.

SOURCE: vitara overheat

When driving down highway only, it overheats? When running steady, I take it you mean, sitting idling? If it's only overheating at highway speeds, and all else has been checked out & is o.k., I'd take a close look at rad hoses for soft spots (easy to squeeze) that may be causing hoses to collapse at highway speeds & restricting flow of cooling system. Another thing to try is, turn your heater on high fan & high temperature when it starts to heat up & see if temperature gauge goes down (cooler) at all. If it does, then rad not doing it's job properly.

Engine runs at idle all plugs fire, but when the engine is throttled is starts to miss and runs rough if i put a strob light on the ht wires you can see the miss fire on all the leads

If you can see electrical sparks across the ht leads then you may have a tracking/shorting problem somewhere.

You haven't said what vehicle you have, but a rotor arm or distributor cap can crack and cause the problem you describe. As can a coil/ignition pack and of course, the leads themselves.

There's no real way of testing ht leads apart from replacing them. The same applies to a rotor cap and rotor arm.

Check inside your rotor cap - if you - can - look for 'tracking' marks... burning. Try cleaning it and spray everything with an ignition sealant to see if that eases the problem.

However, replacement - if you suspect any of these items to be at fault - is the only real answer

We have a 1999 Mitsubishi gallant , we have a miss fire when ever its raining out ? what could be causing this to happen

misfiring is from plugs , HT leads ,moisture in the circuits and injector problems including low fuel pressure. use HT lead bridges to stop leads touching each other, clean out the interior of the distributor cap. ensure that the HT leads are pushed fully home in the cap and on the plugs . clean the distributor outside so the that spark cannot track through the dirt/oil.

Which on is cylinder 1

Cylinder number one is the cylinder closest to the pulleys, camshaft, crankshaft, alternator etc. Check your plugs first then the coil pack, coil packs have replaced HT leads on most petrol vehicles and need to be replaced in sets no matter what people tell you.

misfire come from HT leads and injectors. Check fuel pressure is correct . check HT leads ( separation is important). Check for carbon tracks and moisture in distributor cap.

spray the cap and distributor and all the HT leads with a water dispersant (wd-40 or CRC spray) Any moisture in the cap will cause a ht short circuit and any dirt tracks outside will do the same.

Mixed up ht leads what order do they go in.

You did not specify which engine your Vitara has, the 4 or 6 cylinder, so here are both layouts. For front of vehicle, read ' side of engine where pulleys are'. If your distributor layout is different, locate the position of #1 wire with the engine at TDC compression and follow the firing order around the cap in a clockwise direction:-

Car was running a little sluggish, changed plugs and car ran great for 45 minutes then started running rough. checked ignition module, coil packs. all ok. replaced wires, ran better then started running...

Make sure the HT leads are secure. They might be popping off, causing it to not fire on one cylinder. I always change the plugs and leads at the same time to keep them the same age. HT leads break down rapidly and need regular replacement.

Vitara misfire 1995 1.6

You can try changing the coil pack and then recheck firing order of the wires to make sure they are in correct firing order. Suggest checking the wires first before spending money on the coil pack. Let me know how you make out.
