You will need a code reader, they are about $40 US, The fuel pressure test ort is on the top of the engine near the fuel injectors, it looks like a metal tire valve, u will need a test guage to plug into it, they are about $15 US

no year,stated, and no country stated.
google earth cant find hill 13. so......
is transmission slipping? is it and automatic trans.? not stick shift.

slip means , engine RPM rises fast, but car speed does not.
some think that is power loss and is not. it's just slipping.
slip is transmission problems.
ok its not slip.:
which engine?
1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4

so saying my engine acts odd , is useless with out knowing what engine is there.....see why?

ill then answer for generic engines. GAS or Petrol.
  1. never tuned up the engine in a decade, tops list.!
  2. bad fuel,
  3. weak spark or #1 caused.
  4. cam belt slipped do to no service, (or chain on cam)
  5. Low fuel pressure
  6. or too much fuel pressure ,floods or rich misfires.
  7. misfire. causes low power ., lots of causes. over 50, in fact.
  8. The CLuster Check engine light on? running?
  9. Scan the PCM yet to see if it has DTCs; errors to report?
there are steps or tests in each case.
why not get the car serviced. they will do those tests.

How to replace suzuki g16b head on g16a block

the mounts are the same.
Is this a EFI car or CARB , you never said.
but your 8v ECU will never run any 16v HEAD
the G16B ,means 16v in non USA countries, (only clue yet)
and has a unique ECU, and all harness in dash and motor.
the head is unique, 8 more valves, and 4 injectors not 1.
and has unique intake and exhaust header.
the 16v block has unique pistons with 4 cuts on top. 8v blocks
dont work with 8v heads and reverse. short of fly cutting.

the block casings are the same. and crank, and bearings.

no year stated or county but in Europe they have up to 8 engine types and many with carbs up until 2001 or even later..

the old mounts bolt to the block perfect due to blocks is same.

Suzuki vitara (1992) keeps running after turning it off

What you have is what is called pre ignition and that is caused through getting rather hot and to much fuel going into the engine and holding on the carbon which is on the piston tops (all cars have the carbon on the pistons) but you are getting to much called Running to rich and when you turn off then the petrol in the carbon and the heat keeps it firing BUT most times the engine will run backwards ( in reverse) so get it tuned and save your engine.
Have a goodday and let me know how you get on . Ron

Carburater problem, can the sadanite cause this.

Could be you have air or dirt in the petrol filter? This will block any petrol and cause the engine to stop. You may want to invest in some fuel system cleaner.
