SOURCE: vitara overheat

When driving down highway only, it overheats? When running steady, I take it you mean, sitting idling? If it's only overheating at highway speeds, and all else has been checked out & is o.k., I'd take a close look at rad hoses for soft spots (easy to squeeze) that may be causing hoses to collapse at highway speeds & restricting flow of cooling system. Another thing to try is, turn your heater on high fan & high temperature when it starts to heat up & see if temperature gauge goes down (cooler) at all. If it does, then rad not doing it's job properly.

Your problem could be anything from Dirty air filter/Loose fanbelt/Thermostat sticking/Full throttle over fueling on pump/or air in Water system (somecars have to be bleed thats removing air from radiator and engine) check your book for that.

SOURCE: crack on inlet manifold leaking 1997 suzuki vitara jlx 1600cc

hi, their is no way of repairing this to ensure that it will continue to work, your best option is to replace it as a whole, the cheapest option would be either a breakers yard or even try the biggest auction site we all know and love( cant mention no names on hear) xxay im sure you know what site im on about, anyway those would be your cheapest option.
Or you could just buy a new part at the end of the day its up to you.

You could try fixing it but their is no guarantee its going to last due to the heat involved and the parts expanding and retracting so any repair would be difficult to do and also the repair wouldnt last long witch could leave you breaking down some where.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

The check engine light came on for my 2002 suzuki vitara. The diagnostic code showed PO420 CAT below efficiency. The vehicle is 82,000 miles. How much does it cost for parts and labor? Thanks


420 is O2 sensor, this can happen from putting the wrong replacement sparkplugs in or just age of vehicle this just happened to my suzuki vitara so i replaced the plugs ($18) and the code hasnt come up again yet. if it does come up again ill do the sensor ($180). prices indicated are do it yourself prices

Oil knock in hot weather


Does it knock hard or just rattle loud,? A lot of cars are noisy till the oil gets pumped up top. I hate to see people floor when they first start up, very bad idea, no oil up top, anyway, your oil weight goes by the outside temperature. If you live in Florida, it gets hot, I use 10w-40 year round, up north is a different story, 5w-30 in the winter would be fine, but summer time you could go heavier no problem. My brother uses straight 30 weight with a bottle of Marvel mystery oil as the 5th qt. The stuff works great. It cleans the inside of your engine like you wouldn't believe. He is one of these guys that takes the oil filters apart to check them out. Hope this helps.

Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.


Hi:
My first thoughts are that you have a head gasket or intake manifold gasket failure. This is why you have the white smoke. If you run it too long, your catalytic converter will be destroyed. Check for coolant in your oil too.

Suzuki 2.0 grand vitara runs then cuts out . leave it for half an hour then will restart but then do the same again


Try to feel the ignition coil while the engine is running. Is it too hot? A defective ignition coil will run but will be producing a lot of heat, and when its already too hot, it will stop to function. Let it cool for a while, then it will run again.
