Question about 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara
When I shift into 4WD, the light comes on and the 4WD works, but the truck drives VERY loud. I don't know if this is normal. Also, when I shift to disengage the 4WD, the light goes out BUT the 4WD won't disengage. I have to drive 5-10 minutes before it disengages. Very strange and very frustrating because many times I no longer need the 4WD and it's also very loud so I don't drive over 25-30 mph until it goes back to 2WD. I dread using my 4WD but I've really needed it with all the snow we've been getting this winter.

SOURCE: key gets stuck in ignition
My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.
The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.

SOURCE: 4WD not working properly
this is most commonly caused by the motor on the transfer case that engages the 4X4 either sticking or defective, sticking can be caused by dirty fluid, have u ever serviced the fluid in the transfer case, it should be done around 30,000 miles if u use the 4X4 allot.

SOURCE: my 4wd does not work
you have a vacume hose that has a switch on it that engauges the diffy up front.you can find it by following the hoses of the diff case up to the intake of the motor.thats what makes the diffy connect with the transfer case.there is 2 hoses one a vent and the other a vacume.if the hose got poped off its not going to engauge.the vac hose comes in at the bottom of your diffy.try that mate,hope it helps.

Your car is from 2006 how come it needs a timing belt ( do you drive 20K per year? ). What is wrong with the drive belt. The sound from belt is not a clicking noise.
Any way try to avoid that dealer. What a baloney.
When you start the car, open the hood try to identify where the noise comes from.
1-If it comes from the top engine, open your oil cap, to see if oils splattered from mechanical movements. Usually oil is not enough then it takes time to travel to the cam shaft and the lifters that why after making noise a while then the engine becomes quite since it gets lubricated. How long have you been from last oil changed?
2-If it comes from the front engine try to identify if it comes from Power steering or AC. Check Power-steering fluid to see it it needs filled up. Check this before starting the engine.
Try to turn on AC to see if the noise more or less so you can determine the AC clutch is bad.
Hope you can find the source for a good fix.

You will need to change your thermostat as it is stuck and is not responding correctly to temperature changes. Have your mechanic change the thermo, do a flush of the system and all should be good again.
