Question about Suzuki Liana

3 Answers


Been an intermittant problem for a while now but recently got unbearably worse. Generally, the engine management light comes on and seconds later the display flashes and the car judders to a stop. When the engine is restarted the car will run but usually the longer the wait before restarting, the further it will go, although still not very far. Have had the engine serviced with fancy (expensive) spark plugs and had the front sensor replaced to see if this improves things but obviously it hasn't. Have had computer diagnostics done on two occasions but no fault comes up. It has now been suggested that it could be the exhaust sensor but i'm loathed to keep throwing good money after bad.

Not sure if you have already figured this out- or just sold your car, but I have been having the same problem and had a bit of a search around forums etc. Looks like it is the Crank Angle Sensor which needs to be replaced. I am about to go and get my car fixed so fingers crossed this is the miracle cure. Here is a link to the forum discussion on the issue.

There are three potential failing parts 1) fuel pump motor, 2) crankshaft position sensor, 3) ignition module.

Cutting out when driving

can be caused by 50 things.
but mostly ?
1: engine lost compression, (can do that hot only)
2: lost spark
3: over fueling or under fueling
4: lost electrical power (12v) to the EFI system.
5: overheated engine.? over 200F?

clanking, sounds to me (no pun) is pinging. (detonation.)
this can be a lean fuel mix. on a hot engine.

try using a scan tool OBD2 (no year stated above...????)_
and see if there are DTC thrown as it fails.
or before.

I have a suzuki liana and have recently had problems when driving either at speeds above 90 or when in a traffic jam and driving below 10km per hr. Car starts to ****, rev counter goes crazy although no...

I'm not sure if it's the same, but I had a recent similar problem with my Liana 1.3 (2002).
The engine just went crazy sometimes, specially when the air was hotter (in Portugal, about 35ºC), and the engine rpm display going from zero to 2000 and back many times.
Went to Suzuki workshop and they had to replace the crankshaft (canbota) position sensor, which took me about 230 euros, with diagnosis and mans work.

Hope it helps.

Does a 2002 Aerio have a timing chain or a belt?

Also known as a Liana in some markets, this may have either a "G" series or a "J" series motor in it. This can be checked by finding the engine number - either G16B123456 or J18A123456. The G series is belt driven, while the J series is chain driven (2 chains).
