Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara
Engine starts first time and runs well but then it starts juddering and wants to cut out.Have tried to put redex in but still not cleared it .Check engine light has come on now and again.It feels like feul starvation .I have had the maf censor done at a cost of £110.Can anyone help
Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes stored. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer has noted and curb the need for speculation. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

i have a simialer problem but i was getting neat fuel out the exhaust as well . i removed the engine because id got a replacement then stripped the old one and as i thought it was a valve timing problem.looking at the engine from the front the cams on the left bank had jumped one tooth out of time so fuel was not being burnt and coming straight through the exhaust.strangely it didnt seem to have a big missfire and idling and smoke got worse when warm.
