SOURCE: Will alloy wheels from a HONDA CRV fit a SUZUKI

The rims from the Honda CRV won't fit the Grand Vitara.

The Honda has a 5 X 114.3mm spacing and the Grand Vitara has 5 X 139.7mm spacing. This means that even though they are both 5 lug rims, the Honda lugs are spaced closer together than the Vitara so they won't match up.

SOURCE: how do you change the 60 amp fuse on my suzuki

If this is one of the big block fuses under the bonnet, then if it doesn't pull out by hand then it probably bolted in. You'll have to first disconnect the battery and then unscrew the fuse box from the engine bay. You'll then be able to see the 10mm headed bolts that are holding it in underneath.

SOURCE: Suzuki Gr.Vitara.Front wheels dont engage when reversing in 4WD

The short answer is "no", but working out why could be a little bit difficult. Any further diagnosis should be performed on a hoist or with all 4 wheels off the ground and the transfer box in 4H. Be aware that any of the following checks where front and rear wheels may turn at different speeds will generate an ABS error code and a light on the dash that may need a Dealer to turn off - if you have ABS. You'll also need a couple of hydraulic brake line locking clamps. The first check would be to make sure the front prop shaft turns in reverse as it does in forwards 4WD. Why it wouldn't, I couldn't tell you!
Stop the engine, and while someone is holding their foot on the brake, clamp off both front hydraulic lines to each of the front calipers. Release the hand brake (park brake) and release the foot from the brake pedal (keep foot off brakes from now on) and restart the engine (in nuetral or N), and whilst the engine is idling, select 1st and slowly let the clutch out (if it's a manual), or select D (if it's an auto). If the line locks are holding the pressure in the front brakes, then the manual should stall, and the auto's back wheels shouldn't be turning (but the engine would feel like it's in gear). That would confirm that the front wheels are driving when in forwards 4WD.
Then we do the same test but going backwards, so select reverse and let the clutch out (or R if auto), and if what you say is true, then the back wheels should be spinning away at idle. If the engine stalled, or the back wheels aren't turning, then everything is OK.
Remember to remove the line locking clamps after this test.
I would think that you may have only seen the wheel that wasn't turning when going backwards. These cars have open diffs - so the wheel with the most resistance to rotating won't turn, but the one on the other side will. This is the same for both the front axle and rear axle for most Grand Vitaras. Very few have a factory rear LSD, and I don't think any got a front LSD.
I've just had inspiration - if the front wheels don't drive ONLY in reverse 4WD, the only thing wrong would have to be the front diff engaging mechanism or its related wiring/switching controls. If the relays that control the pump that supplies air pressure to the diff engaging diaphragm in the front diff housing don't get the "I'm in 4WD" signal from the transfer box, the pressure is relieved to the diff and you're back into 2WD. My next check would be to see if your reverse lights are working when in reverse. See if your reverse lights come on when in 4WD or 2WD. If they aren't working, or coming on at the wrong time, then SOMEHOW, the wiring/plugs on the gearbox/transfer case may have been mixed up (during a clutch replacement?) or the wiring somewhere else is wrong. I would probably do the checking of reverse lights before the first test above. Good luck. Let me know how you go.

I have just replaced the radiator on my 2003 Suzuki grand vitara 1.6. Can anyone tell me how much water I should fill it with and the ratio of anti-freeze please? Any help gratefully received.


50/50 or 60/40

Coolant to Distilled Water (from supermarket) not tap water

Have to use the correct coolant for a Suzuki of that year

One gallon of coolant & two gallons of distilled water should
give you enough to mix small amounts to 50/50 or I use 60/40

Almost ALL coolant you will see in ANY store is really GM Dexcool
Spec & NOT for your car
The yellow Prestone one size fits all--- is NOT true -- Read the back & compare to dexcool That is what it is chemical wise

Your going to have to use Zerex Asian or a Dealer purchased brand
Possibly Zerex G-05
I have not researched the correct fluid for you,you do that

The Old Green Fluids are not sold in many places any more,
for I assume stupid state environmental reasons & transport
issues from state to state

NO ONE anywhere will be telling you the real truth, because they don't know the answer,not even the professional repair shops,they don't care,to them one size fits all

when did you have your tires balanced last. If it has been awhile have them re-balanced. Your description sounds like you may have thrown a weight.

Steering is stiff & difficult during turns.have used power steering fluid.2001 suzuki vitara xl7 v6 4dr


Its either the power steering pump, or the rack & pinion, (steering gear). It is only going to get worse, and maybe even dangerous, as the steering will jam and not turn. Have it inspected by someone you trust....soon! If it is the rack & pinion it may cost around $500 to have it replaced. Make sure that price includes the required front-end alignment. It will drive like new afterwards!!

Rotated & balanced tires. new driveshaft & center carrier bearing u-joints new shocks front & rear replaced rear axle bearings and seals new left rear rotor parking brake shoes new disc brake...


You will need to check things logically. Run the truck in the air and note where the vibration is at. Take the wheels OFF and put a few lug nuts to hold the rotors on, take the truck to 45mph or whatever the vibration is the worst. is it still there? if its gone, check wheels/ tires. if its still there, check rotors, axles. A drive shaft will make a rapid vibration at low speeds since it turns 3 to 4 times faster than the wheels. does it vibrate on or off the gas? Can you power through the vibration like go 60 and then coast back through? You have replaced a lot of parts that would not cause vibrations. Are you just changing parts willy nilly or is someone actually checking and verifying that these parts really bad?

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Vibrate/shake at 55-70 mph


Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.
