I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara almost ran out of gas.I put gas in and now when I push the gas pedal the car barely moves I barely got home thepedal

running the pump dry is bad. on all EFI cars
the pump is fuel cooled and fuel lubricated
if you run any pump dry, you risk pump damage
but lets hope it not damaged, hope is good.
key on 10 times, hear it run?(the pump) let it run 10 times not started
and pray it works, and this trick primes it and gets all air out of the line
the 3 second run time is called just that auto prime.
then run it.
never run EFI cars dry, its a rule.
the dash chime told you it was low, ignore that at your risk.

My 2.0td vitara starts good, drives well, but stops like turning off key. Engine management light comes on, but if leave car sit for 5 minutes, turn key, and runs perfect . Stop car, restart, all ok , with...

i had the exact same thing happen to me with my first car, a 1966 mercury comet.

i replaced the fuel pump, rebuilt the carburetor (twice), and finally rebuilt the entire engine! still, every time afterwards, the car ran ok, then would cut off again!

it turned to be just a $2 clogged fuel filter. i' suspect the same with your vehicle. after removing the filter, simply blow through it. any resistance, means it needs replacing.

My suzuki grand has a hard starting

Could be a long list of things.
Weak spark, too much or too little fuel, etc.
You'll need to check the spark at the plugs and try spraying carb cleaner into the air intake to try to determine if it is ignition or fuel related.

Message SHOW check the system when i start the car

Two reasons for this ...
1. the fuel pump is over pumping
2. one of the jets in the Multi Point Fuel injection system is jammed and constantly pumping gas into the cylinder.
Get a good injection cleaner fuel addative... this will solve your problem... though it will take a few days of driving before the RPM settles down below 1K RPM.

I have a Suzuki Vitara 2002.. it'll start and run but then turns off here and there... when it turns off, I try turning it back on but won't start.. it'll only start when I try starting it again about 15...

Write suzuki directly, or contact them,first try your local suzuki dealer , if that doesnt work try corporate offices. This is a very common problem that occurs alot in most suzuki's. I myself just bought a 2001 vitara 2 weeks ago & have the same problem. It starts up fine in the morning but if I stop somewhere with the car & let it idle , it starts to stall & shut off completely & then I have to wait 10 to 20 minutes before it will turn on. Suzuki should admit to this problem & have a recall. I have read hundreds of articles of people all over the states with the same problem. The dealers are telling everyone " well we dont know what the problem is". Its their JOB! They should know!
