Get the belt checked. It sounds like they may have put it on with the engine out of time

90000 Miles on the Timing Belt. Do not let this go! A timing belt failure can cause internal engine problems.

Should cost around 200 or so, depending upon your local labor rates.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: high fuel consumption on Suzuki swift 2003.

hi
im dave
Is there a leak in one of the fuel lines? Check the length of the fuel lines from the pump (you may need an extendable mirror to see the top of gas tank) right up to the point where it enters the fuel rail on the engine. Take special note of the junctions and try to do it with the car running and at a slight idle so fuel is pumping. Check next for a smell of too much gasoline along the fuel rail as one of the injectors may be improperly seated and or broken and leaking. Has the service engine check engine light come on at all or come on and gone out. If your o2 sensor(s) go you use more fuel. If they go there should be a code stored in your PCM (computer). You can pull any codes out of that car by finding the connector and jumping it. Also if your air element(filter) or any pipes are clogged in that system up to the throttle body you will use much more fuel.

Let me know how these tests go

SOURCE: need to know how to line the timing marks on the

there is a timing mark on the timing cover that lines up with the mark on the crank pulley (i believe the mark is above the white dot on the crank) then on the 2 gears up top, there are lines that should line up horizontally with the top of the timing cover.

Cutting out at 3500 rpm


Check if the air filter is clogged with oil and dirt. Check the timing, then check that the cam belt has not slipped. Could be plug wires, but this will usually cause rough running as well. Could be low fuel pressure.
