Have you checked compression ?
Both engines are interference style which means you can damage the valves if the belt breaks while the engine is running.

Why grand vitara wont start? turns but does not fire


2.5L engine? v6.
you broke it , didnt you.
the 2.5L has no belt so its not 2.5L , 2.5L is CHAIN,(i own one same year)
must be a 4 cylinder engine??
and G16>
world wide GV have these engines
1.6 L G16B I4 (petrol)
2.0 L J20A I4 (petrol)
2.5 L H25A V6 (petrol)
2.0 L RF/RFM I4 (diesel)
2.0 L RHW/RHZ I4 (diesel)

only the 1.6BL gas has a belt.
lucky for you its not an INTERFERENCE engine or boom.
I also have A G16 suzuki and know how to time it.
the G16, must be cam timed at #4 cylinder firing, never #1
this is stated in the gates belt page, the FSM and alldata.com
and here.

after changing the belt , i always check that i have my 170psi
compression back (wideopen throttle) or its all just a waste of time.

its not the CKP unplugged, as this engine runs with out one.
fact.
here are all G16b steps.
and nice photos. and the false marks, that is correct, suzuki
gawd love em. uses the cogs on 2 engines. 3cyl and 4cyl.

Car not firing


Most likely the valves were bent.
When you attempt to start the motor does it turns over a bit fast and will not sound quit right - Not even attempt to spark up or fire up.
Check engine cylinder compression. The valves were bent when the belt broke.
you will
1. check compression (and when it fails)
2. decide to have the head checked and if possible rebuilt (use new head bolts)
or
3. Look for and buy a low milage used motor
or
4. Look for a rebuilt head

Was driving and started to lose power like the timing belt broke but checked it and belt is not worn and suggestions


If the timing belt broke the engine would die and not restart.
Does it act like it is not firing on one or more cylinders ?

Timing belt broke at about 55 miles per hour. do you think the valves are bent and what parts do I need to buy other than belt? Oh 2001 hyundai sonada with 2.6L motor. THANKS Jimmy


The 2.4l and 2.5l engines are interference engines, meaning it is highly likely that you bent your valves when your timing belt broke. Besides the timing belt, you may need a new belt tensioner and pulleys. I would replace the water pump too.

My 2001 pt has fire on 1and 4 and 2and3 dose not,even with new coil same problem?


This tells me you have a bad Crank Position sensor or bad cam position sensor that is not sending the signal to fire those cylinders.

I think my timing belt slipped. It broke on the highway i had it towed home and changed the belt and water pump. When I put it all back together it wouldn't start. I checked the timing mark on the crank...


You installed the belt with the crankshaft 180 degrees out of place. It is very unlikely that the belt slipped, unless there is internal damage in the engine.

Hello.. i alredy change my timming belt but when it is done my engine shaking.. so what is the problem? can someone help pls..


Are you replacing the belt because it broke, or just routine maintenance? If you replaced it because it broke, you probably have bent valves. When a belt breaks, the cam(s) stops turning, but the pistons keep going up and down a few times before the engine stops completely. The pistons will hit the valves that were open at the time the belt broke and bend them. If this is the case, the heads must be pulled off and repaired.
