You have water in an electrical connection somewhere. You are going to have to take each one apart and make sure they are dry, use a hair dryer.

The water has gotten past the plug boot seal. Pull the plug tire off the plugs and use some compressed air to blow out and dry the plugs. Some times the water can really get deep so don't pull out the spark plugs.

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.

SOURCE: Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.

i have a simialer problem but i was getting neat fuel out the exhaust as well . i removed the engine because id got a replacement then stripped the old one and as i thought it was a valve timing problem.looking at the engine from the front the cams on the left bank had jumped one tooth out of time so fuel was not being burnt and coming straight through the exhaust.strangely it didnt seem to have a big missfire and idling and smoke got worse when warm.

SOURCE: 1997 Ssangyong Musso engine has erradic idle & intermittent start

i think the problem is in the fuel line. i have encounter it too.. the best way is to replace all fuel filter. muzzo have 3 fuel filter. 2 located at the engine and the other one located at the fuel tank they called it as strainer. u can see the opening of the tank underneath the back seat of the car. also good suggestion clean the tank. duel dirt is the main cause of your problem cause muzzo have only a small tip that why only little dirt can cause plunging in engine. sory for bad English

SOURCE: Please help: 1992 Cadillac Deville:

E13: right bank O2 sensor, no data
F48: low refrigerant level in A/C system

Neither of these is likely to cause rough idle, but I would change the sensor.
If that cure it, great.

If not, make sure the vacuum hose on the fuel pressure regulator (at end of fuel rail) is tight at both ends and not cracked or leaking. Then pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and see if there is any fuel in the vacuum hose. If yes, replace regulator.
I also recommend cleaning up the intake side of engine with carb cleaner or equivalent: throttle body, Mass airflow sensor, EGR system, and PCV valve. Make sure EGR valve is operating.

If you have questions, please let me know.

SOURCE: 2004 F150 SuperCrew, check engine light flashes,

Flashing CEL is an indication of a misfire. You would need a code scanner to find out which cylinder it is.
The code should be a P030n where n= 1 to 8 ( the cylinder number ). Could be a P0300, which is a misfire indication.

Runs rough idle


your idle valve may be dirty or needs replacing would check this as it controls idle. sits on the intake with wires coming out of it.

Idle is rough


Spark Plugs have to be changed every 3 years
Front Oxygen Sensors changed every 100,000 miles
Can't have any Vacuum Leaks -- anywhere on the vehicle
Need to have it road tested with a Professional Scan Tool
& look at all data & get caught up on Preventative Maintenance
Very few people change motor oil 3 or 4 times a year, if at all,
and the Variable Cam Actuators fail, as a result,that & few other
things can cause rough running engine & resulting idle issues
It's well known that Ford COP Ignition Coils fail sometime in
every year of ownership

Exhaust smells like coolant


That's the symptom of a leaking head gasket. Is your coolant level low?

Where is the piont where you plug in the diagnostic connector on a 2001 petral vitara


The common faults on this engine are EGR valve and IAC valve.
The EGR causes rough running and cutting out,
The IAC causes just cutting out without the rough running, stalling at junctions etc is the usual complaint.
If you pm me the cars reg, chassis no etc i could see if i could email you the manual its a pdf so should be quite straight forward.

Suzuki Vitara V6, MAF sensor, white smoke.


Hi:
My first thoughts are that you have a head gasket or intake manifold gasket failure. This is why you have the white smoke. If you run it too long, your catalytic converter will be destroyed. Check for coolant in your oil too.

Can I replace a suzuki vitara 1998 v6 engine with


If everything is the same - yes I would say check with Suzuki dealership. BUT in most cases the service department and the parts department will say no because they have different part #s. But if you have a good parts man he will do his homework to get the sale.
