4h means high range 4wd and 2L and 4L means 2 wheel and 4 wheel low range. low range is used when going through washouts and down washed out hills etc. do not use the brake as the vechile may slide. low range is basically just letting the car do the work and idle it down hills etc where 4wd is needed. don't try to drive normally while any 4wd is engaged as you will damage it.

2012 vitara emmission. light on and vehicle is missing

get the OBD codes read as will point to the sensor/switch causing the issue, might just need a good long run at a highish speed to burn off any deposits , what is the usual usage of the vehicle , short journies stop and start ? if so i'd get a fuel addative that covers the catalytic convertor/or if diesel get a diesel addative, and follow the instructions , I know this is 2 answers but go with the OBD codes first and if says o2 sensor try the fuel addative before replacing parts,good luck

I have hyundai sonat dohc 2002 model i want to know how much engine oil i need to fill and my car have heating problem is this engine oil problem

Your owners manual should tell you how much oil the engine holds. A 4 cyl usually takes 4 or 4 1/2 quarts with a new filter.
Are you saying the engine is overheating, or the heater is not working ?

Suzuki grand vitara 2008 Fule problem

Too HIGH Fuel consumption.
First off, mine gets 19 mpg no MATTER what ! BEST MPG.
car too heavy and enigine is too big, my 96' gets 28mpg 1.6L
15 gallons in 125miles, USA rate.sorry.
that be about 8mpg, 2 times, the normal rate.

Ever tune it up, try new spark plugs.
Does the CEL, check engine lamp come on driving,?
(SES) service engine soon?
if yes, why are you ignoring the lamp.?
does the lamp come on key on? if not its burned out,
did you connect an OBD2 scan tool to the DLC conn. and see
if all is well?
no? why not? stored DTCs? pending codes?
Is the CEL flashing, (this means , raw fuel is hitting the CAT)

bad MPG can be
1: leaking or stuck injector (x6)
2: ECU in limphome driver ignoring CEL lamp.
3: too heavy right foot, but 8mpg is hard to do...that way.
4: towing a heavy load, up the rocky mountains?
5: fuel pressure failure, at 60psi, (2 possible ways. ask)
6: bad sensors for EFI.
7: can name 50 more. so stop

ask your mechanic to find it. it takes tools and know how.

How many oil quarts on a 4 cyl 2009 grand vitara

This info should be in your owners manual.
Normally it holds 5 quarts with a filter, but I would start with 4 quarts and recheck.

I have a 2001 suzuki vitara it will run for about twenty minutes and stall.

which engine? 2liter?
do a tune up, read the operators guide, see the 60k mile listing.
follow that every 60k or it will stall.
if you did do your service, stalls can be caused by over 50 reasons.
I will list a few
1: not ever tuned up. if it has a cam belt , that too is 60k service.
2; bad engine cyclinder compression on 1 or more cyl.
3: bad spark, spark components dead. 1 or more.
4: stuck open EGR.
5: ISC stuck closed,
6: after 20mins the engine is not fully hot 180f+ bad thermostat.
7: leaking injectors
8: too high or too low fuel pump pressure.

each failure , is discovered with simple tests. using very inexpensive gauges.
ask for help, or take the car to any ASE certified mech.
