SOURCE: engine management light on ,suzuki grand vitara 2

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.

SOURCE: Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.

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.

Where is the fuel cut off switch on a 2001 suzuki grand vitara


why not post symptoms and ask a question.???
no engine size stated of the 3.
first off. there is no such switch.!
THE PCM on ALL suzuki's made In usa (ours vary)control the fuel pump and injectors under all conditions, not you, or any switch
it has no inertial switches like FORDs, its not a Ford.

the PUMP (fuel)
is activated cranking, the PCM closes a relay the relay sends 12vdc to the pump cranking ,an when running,
if the engine stalls for any reason the PCM cuts fuel at the injectors
and the PUMP.
that is how it works,
reasons to cut fuel are.
1: not running
2: lost spark
3: lost spark precursors, CMP /CKP senders, (same as lost spark)
4: cuts fuel cranking in the wide open throttle crank mode (super secret unflood mode,)

How do i remove front hub


hello anon.
2wd or 4wd car?, this Counts big time? i toss coin; land 4wd.
The USA car can be Vitara or Grand Vitara. and cut in dates vary for that too.
the 2002 has no end locking hubs.
so you must mean front wheel bearing hubs.
ok its easy with tools.

GOT TOOLS?
http://www.fixkick.com/hubs/FW_BEARINGS.html#newer

to be accurate i need full spec on car
country
engine sizes. and if 2wd or 4wd.

my guess is your car has the unified hubs. (bearings can not be removed)
you unbolt it.
you put the new hub on
you torque it to 123-180 Ft/lbs, this is the running torque not a preload)
if not, it will fail fast.

that page even has the FSM chapter page there. to see.
from a real Suzuki, 2004.
can be seen tool, at alldata.com
or at suzuki pit stop , dot com (google it) its there.

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.

Put new pump in tank suzuki vitara v6 petrol being pumped up to engine engine starts and runs for short time and cuts out if left for 20mins will start and run again and cuts out but noticed no presure in...


Hello! I suspect a defective Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor. It is located on the top of the tank...It has a 3 wire connector...Wire colors are...Brown/Red...Gray/Yellow...And Gray/Red...It cost around $260...But it can be tested but difficult to get at unless you drop the tank...Set volt meter to read 5 volts...Using two safety pins, push one into the rear of the in place connector on the outside pin (Brown/Red) and the other on the other outside pin (Gray/Red)...Turn on key...connect meter + probe to the rear right side pin and the - probe to the rear left side pin...Must read +5 volts...Move the right rear pin to the middle wire (Gray/Yellow)...Must read 3.3 volts...If you do not read the proper voltage the sensor is defective...

Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.


Hi:
My first thoughts are that you have a head gasket or intake manifold gasket failure. This is why you have the white smoke. If you run it too long, your catalytic converter will be destroyed. Check for coolant in your oil too.

Suzuki 2.0 grand vitara runs then cuts out . leave it for half an hour then will restart but then do the same again


Try to feel the ignition coil while the engine is running. Is it too hot? A defective ignition coil will run but will be producing a lot of heat, and when its already too hot, it will stop to function. Let it cool for a while, then it will run again.

My suzuki vitara has check engine light on and is ok for water and i put oil into it as seemed bit low, but it wont start at all. pls help


Check if there's a spark in the cable going to the distributor. If there's none then you may have a problem in the ignition system components. A defective air flow sensor can also cause a no start. If spark is present, you may want to visit the fuel system of your car.

Suzuki grand vitara 2000 model the engine light blinks


Take your rig.. drive it to a gas station.. fill the tank up with gas.. also fill 2 jugs of gasoline at the same time... put the jugs in the back of it.. now drive as far as you can until the rig runs out of gas.. then, take the two jugs of gas.. pour it all over the rig, inside and out.. now light it a-blaze, then walk to your nearest car dealer and buy a new car..
