Suzuki vitara 1991 model petrol

For some reason the engine revs at 2000 revs even after it has warmed up . Ihave tried adjusting the idle but with no success. I think it must be the automatic choke but i dont seem to be able to locate it .can you help me please

Yes, I found the problem was actually lack of coolant. Once that was remedied it came back to normal revs. (Pity that son had blown head gasket though through running the car with virtually no coolant or oil in it. we had a bigger problem!)

There is a module called "idle limiter". Sounds as if it is bad!

I just bought a 2000 Grand Vitara and I noticed when in drive at a stop the engine revs up a little then normal, back up and down.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, please do check the vacuum hoses. If there are disconnected or worn out vacuum hoses the car's idle becomes unusual. One good reason why it goes up a little when braking.

Another cause will be the MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF sensor is fault, the car's idle becomes erratic. Your MAF sensor may be near it's break point so be ready for a possible replacement soon.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Have you ever had your timing chain replaced? If not, then most likely your timing chain is getting loose and starting to tap on the sides of the housing. This is normal after probably 110-130000 miles, so you may consider this. DOHC engines don't have the lifter tapping problems that pushrod engines have. The reason you only year the timing chain tap at idle and when warm, is the metal expands when it warms up, making the chain slightly longer. At idle, chains and belts "flutter," or shake back and forth. when the engine speeds up, it puts more tension on the chain and it stops.

2000 Suzuki Vitara 2 liter stalls when engine warm


The accelerator cable had slack in it a was right against the idle stop.
I adjusted so it was tight and was about the thickness of a sheet of paper off of the stop. Now it does not stall at idle when warm.

Engine wont idle on my vitara jlx 1993


Check your air idle control valve, check for the wires to be fretted or broke, and also check the vacuum lines to it. 
The air idle control valve mey be dirty and a good cleaning with throttle body clean through the throttle body may help clean the carbon build up. 
If there is a Auto Zone, have the Vitara scanned for a DTC code. 
Here is a few things you can do. 
Checking  the IAC (it's called the ISC on Single Point TBI)
It is screwed to the throttle body, and has a 2 pin electrical connector) with an Ohmmeter - the solenoid should be 11 to 14 ohm.  If not, replace.  


To test the IAC / ISC
Use a Duty Meter, and adjust the air adjust screw to get 50%.  If the revs are not right at that point, adjust some more to try to get them correct, but if the duty goes below 28%, a vacuum leak is highly likely.

Air Adjust screw for TBI / Single point   look on the Throttle Body, just below the fuel line and maybe an inch to the left of the Fuel Pressure Regulator - it looks like a cross head screw into the TB.

The 8v (Single Point / TBI) uses a throttle opener device to open the throttle extra during starting.  When the engine starts to run, a vacuum line is applied to the device through a vacuum servo valve, controlled by the ECM. The vacuum closes the throttle opener, to bring the revs down to normal.  The ECM will operate the VSV after about 10 sec from engine start (less if the coolant is warm).

Try these things for now and keep me posted. good luck.
