Hi I have a 2012 grand vitara 2.4 petrol and the oil light comes on intermittantly when driving.

Did you check your oil level? If it is full then there may be air getting into the pump somehow. This happened to me years ago when the pickup tube cracked that went to my oil pump. Could become something that will kill your engine.

How do I fix what I've been told is a little end replacement?

It would be more likely a connecting rod bearing that has worn and possibly spun.

Depending if you want a long term repair, the whole engine will have to be stripped and inspected for oil starved components.

Or you could remove oil pan, carry out a main and big end bearing roll, and clean up any damage to crankshaft with fine strip emery cloth, run and see how it goes..

.500km after service the oil is dirty, almost black. What does this mean? any problem with my car. Please assist.

If it is a diesel then dark engine oil is normal as it is carrying the carbon from combustion in suspension. If it is a petrol engine the black oil is an indication of compression fire getting into sump and burning the oil That may relate to rings , or bore problem. Check the oil that you used as it should be 20w-50 at least for either diesel or petrol. Have a compression test done on either engine to determine engine condition.

Can you mix engine oil

Hi Marsha, Many people mix brands of oil specified for either petrol engines and the same is true for oils specified for diesel engines if topping up, but it's not a good idea....It is a very bad idea to use an oil specified for one type of engine in the other. I would suggest never mixing oil manufactured for a diesel engine in a petrol engine or visa versa. The reason is that the diesel engine is dirtier than a petrol engine and manufactures of oil formulate it to have more cleaning chemicals than that used in petrol engines....Mixing the two can result in a build up of sludge which can actually block the lubrication system of the engine causing in some cases severe damage. Regards John

Hi there was smoke coming from my exhaust and the engine was on fire abit there was a smell like burning oil thanxs james

ask a local mechanic to have a look as i suspect a oil leak onto the engine but i cannot be more specific without having the bonnet up and a good look ,could be anything from a loose breather pipe to rocker cover gasket ,We do have these vehicles here in spain but mainly diesels although the odd petrol one gets brought here and these have a toyota engine i think ,remember they are all built on the same assembly line here so a ford /fiat/citreon/seat/VW and whatever else all use the same parts well mostly anyway .And nearly all diesel manual variants unless its an import from the states but we dont get many of these strangly beautful machines with leather interiors ,big V6 petrol engines with auto boxes with lots of knobs and bells ,cant afford the petrol at about nearly 6 dollars a gallon
