This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.

2001 grand vitara runs good but stalls every time I hit the brake, I had a corroded positive terminal I replaced it and now I have this problem


stalls, there are 50 ways to stall a motor,
1: engine lost compression. (can do that hot, or over heated)
2: lost spark.
3: bad fueling. (too much or too little)
4: isc sticks (can your right foot avoid the stall easy, bingo ISC.
5: lost electric power to EFI system. lost 12v, (even a loose fuse)

sounds to me #5 based just on the brake deal.

Vitara JX 1.6 soft-top. Made in Spain 1998. Engine runs at 2000rpm when cold and only returns to idle after 10 mins or 6 miles in warm conditions. Can i adjust anything ? ps. I live in England


maybe slow,cold start,air control valve or,possibly normal for temp in morning,I live in Australia and cars can take ages to slow down in winter eg1 to 3 deg cel...and very quickly warm up in summer..eg....idle slows down in 1/4 time,have a look at the car if you can park it in warmer conds... to see if its quicker as Toyotas do this normally for fast warm up,lastly has it been well serviced...looked after??

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start. It started but stalls then will just crank but not catch, or if it catches again it stalls.


Install a good fast idle valve and see if this will solve the problem. If not, try replacing the mass air flow sensor.
