Diesel? state county,
they use diff, engine in diffr. countries.
in the USA the answer is the FSM. book.
or DIY or at mitchells.

here off the wiki, see this about diesel?
. Since 2001, all diesel 1st Gen Vitaras are to be imported from Argentina, built by General Motors in Argentina, featuring 2.0-litre HDI engines from PSA

is this it? the PSA? (wild guessing)

SOURCE: where is the thermostat on a 2002 suzuki grand vitara?

grab the top radiator hose, follow it back to the engine. Where the hose connects, is the thermostat housing. The thermostat is inside. Remove 2 bolts, and you'll see it.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.5liter and it was running fine i jus replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now vehicle won't start and has no compression how did i loose compression?

so, you removed all 6 cop coils and 6 spark plugs.
then blocked the throttle open, and pulled the fuel pump relay
then checked compression and all 6 are zero not 150psi +
really? the throttle must be blocked open or the engine will not get air supply to make compression.
i bet you did no read the gauge instructions nor FSM steps, same, so false reading. here.
or didnt use a long hose screw in gauge, and tried to use rubber tipped chevy engine gauge , useless here)
did you remove that CMP sensor on the rear of the left head?
if you messed it up , it will never run. right. IT IS TIMED !
mess with this?

questions, does it run for 3 seconds on test fuel? sprayed?
is the Check engine light glowing key on? if not you blew fuses.!!!
pull battery neg lug before starting work?
connect scan tool and crank 5 seconds, get P03xx errors. DTC, bingo
check static timing>? yes, it has that. and a freeze jumper to check timing if the CMP was violated, in any way.
if you need help, ask, I have the full FSM on this car. 2 volumes.

if test fuel fails. you lost spark or fiddled the CMP or its UNPLUGGED.
I bet compression is perfect. I DO ! (9 out of 10 do it wrong is why, DIY shade tree )

Is there a sensor that sends a signal to the glow plug relay to say that the engine is cold and trigger the relay to heat the glow plugs in a 2002 suzuki grand vitara with the 2.0 hdi rhz code engine

It will work through the temperature sending unit for the engine. You may have one or two. Some companies dedicate one temp sensor for the glow plugs and some don't.

When at a stop light the car idles fine when i go to take off it sputters and back fires. I changed the spark plugs, but it is still doing it. It idles fine otherwise.

Does not sound like ignition, but fuel.
Idle needs little fuel.
Could be a clogged filter, water in the gas, bad pump, vacuum building up in the tank, bad sensors, etc.
Start with a gauge on the fuel pressure.
If it is low, that will point to filter or pump. Filter is cheaper to try.
If not low, then check the sensors with ohmmeter from Harbor Freight for $3.
There are O2, water temp, MAS, air temp, etc.
