It is a part time 4x4 .it is meant for ice,mud,snow gravel etc.
do not use on dry road.
the wheels are locked together and in a turn the outside wheels have to turn faster and they can't.
that is why there is hopping in 4x4 when making a sharp turn on dry pavement.pressure builds up in the driveline until the tires slip on the road.
only full time or awd systems are for dry road,they have slippage units so the pressure does not build.

Non shifting gear at L4x4 on 2003 grand vitara 2.7 automatic


this part time 4WD? option>?

My wife's 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara is starting to have problems shifting. Every time you depress the clutch pedal and try to put the vehicle in first gear from a stop position, the stick doesn't want to go...


Do the following:
-Check the clutch fluid,
-With the engine off make the trip from 1 to 5 gear,as if you were on the road
if it is okay
Let's go to the second step, With the engine running, do the same but keeping the pedal depressed , Does not engage any gear ?
-If the clutch fluid is OK , then The bearing of the output shaft is damaged or clutch release bearing

I want to locate where the gear box oil goes in my vautomatic vitara 1996 model


Gear Box Oil refers to manual transmission normally. Goes in a 1/2 inch or so hole in the side of the box. You don't need to add unless it is leaking. Remove the plug and put your finger into the hole. If you get oil on your finger, it is full.

I'm not familiar with a 'vautomatic' ... if this is a type of automatic in the Suzuki (I am a Suzuki MC expert) you will find the dip stick in the engine compartment. There will actually be two dip sticks ... one for engine oil (black) and one for the trans (oil should be red or pink). If it is dark or smells burnt, have it replaced.

Gear stuck in neutral


check linkage bars from shifter to transmission you will find 2 of them generally what happens is that the ball or pivot gets worn and ends up falling off.
