Question about Suzuki Vitara
Car starts and drives fine for about 30 minutes more or less then starts spluttering and backfiring then stalls. It won't start again for about an hour. I have not tried driving it for any length of time except to get the car home. I have changed the fuel pressure regulator but it made no difference. Check engine light comes on when it stalls.
The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .
