Hydraulic leaks are typically a result of seals/o-rings wearing out. If you gave a leak coming from the cylinder you will probably have to replace the cylinder. Unless you are can do the repair yourself its unlikely that you will find someone who can rebuild it for less than a new one costs

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara just had the engine replaced, but it is burning oil out the tailpipe the warranty company is saying it is the value covers, is this true

Valve covers leaking oil OUT the tail pipe, no way in hell! Valve covers can leak oil onto the exhaust manifold, but there is no way its going to get into the exhaust from there and out the tail pipe.

Bad valve guides and/or valve guide seals would put oil from the top of the head and into the cylinders. That is a far bigger job than just replacing valve cover gaskets.

Don't let the warranty company give you any more of that kind of BS.

1999 suzuki grand vitara will not turn over, jumping starts the car, also vehicle was very low on oil, wondering if there is an oil sensor?

If jumping the car off starts it and it will keep running, then you have a bad battery and need to replace it. If it starts the car and it shuts off again, you need to replace your alternator.

As for the oil situation, make sure there isn't an oil leak. And it isn't likely that there's an oil sensor.

V6 grand vitara, could noisey tappets be caused by faulty hydrolic lifters? If so how difficult would it be to change them?

Unlikely. The hydraulic lifters used in this model have been used across the Suzuki range for many years and have proven very reliable. The most likely cause for the noise is lack of oil pressure to the VLAs (valve lash adjusters). This can be due to the incorrect viscosity oil being used, or lack of servicing leading to clogging of the oil passages in the cylinder head or in the VLAs themselves with sludgy oil residue. There are a number of snake oils which can supposedly help soften and flush this residue out, and it would be worth trying this and changing the oil before deciding to change the VLAs - which are very expensive to purchase (24 per engine!), and are a very difficult operation to change with the engine in the car.

Noisy tappets

They are hydraulic. Change to a thinner grade of oil. Possibly, an engine flush could be beneficial. Your oil changes have probably been too few and too far apart.

Engine oil mixed in coolant

this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.
