Question about Suzuki Vitara

1 Answer

Hello guys, Please help, we have a Suzuki Vitara 16 Valve, and think the spark plugs need changing, however a 10mm socket will not fit, do we need to try a 8mm or are we doing something wrong and need to try something else? Vicki

    5/8 is that 15mm? We have tried a 10mm but that doesnt fit, it is too big.

The spark plug socket should be a 5/8 on that vehicle if you are using NGK plugs. Good Luck

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot

no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
we cant guess any of that.

206gti spark plug change //

You must remove the Coil connector rack and under the coil rack are the individual coils for each spark plug, carefully lift them out, t wist them back and forth to break the rubber boot seal on the top of the spark plugs which are down in well under the coils the valve cover, the ignition coil connector rack is held down by two machine screws, 10mm head I think. You will need a medium 3/8" drive socket wrench extension to get the plugs out and of course a 5/8" spark plug socket and ratchet wrench. Below is a picture of the coil connector rack.

I own a 1999 suzuki grand vitara 4wd with a v6 engine. i had a spark plug blow out and it stripped the sleeve it fits in. i can't find a repair manual on a v6 engine. can you tell me how to fix it

you will require a spark plug chaser, i think it's called, to re-tap the hole or a tap and die set. it's standars procedure when you strip a nut or bolt

Suzuki plug location!

Remove the securing bolt for the spark generator--each plug has one--I think it is 10mm-then withdraw the unit and the spark plug is way down there--you may have to remove the cross brace to access No 3 I think it is.

Change spark plugs

My 2004 Verona had factory installed "NGK BKUR6ETB" regular spark plugs which I replaced at 30,000 miles. The 2005 model year is supposed to have Iridium spark plugs. To replace the spark plugs: 1. Remove plastic top engine cover. 5 nuts 10mm socket. 2. Unplug connector from each ignition coil. qty 6. 3. remove 2 hold down bolts per ignition coil. 10mm socket. 4. remove ignition coil, lifting straight up. 5. Spark plug is now accessible, use deep well 5/8 spark plug socket to remove.
