Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara
What engine, 2L I-4 or 2.5L V6? post engine, for best answers
or Post VIN, or open hood (USA) look up see EPA vacuum sticker. that tells you the engine type.
ever do the 60,000 mile tune ups, 120k, 180k,etc?
1: after the tune up.
Ill assume it cranks robustly but does not start hot.
2: does using the op guide recommended WOT method start car
when dead? ( press right foot to floor, crank , bingo it starts)
If true that means it was flooded. post back if true.
3: if it dont start WOT (wide open throttle)
that means, its lost spark or lost fueling.
so check for spark using a new , gapped proper test spark plug.
got spark? no , post bad, Ive no spark hot.
4: gots spark but will not start. so use test fuel.
A: for only 3 seconds, it runs but then stops. each attempt.
yes, then you have fuel pump issues, (no didnt say bad pump!!!)
no, engine issues. hot motor , has lost compression?
yes> post compression on all cylinders warm to hot. WOT.
or watch scotty do it. (oldest story on cars, ever, no start , 100 years)

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.

Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.
