Question about 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara
Hmmm, main bearing noises are usually more obvious when the cluch is released, as the engine is driving the gearbox input shaft, it's more likely the clutch throwout bearing or the spigott bearing, does the noise start as soon as the slack is taken up in the pedal? if yes, it's most likely the throwout bearing, if the noise starts with the pedal about halfway its more likely the spigott bearing. either way, it's probably about time for a replacement cluch kit. Not sure about the 2001 model but 90's model Vitara's tend to suffer from gearbox input shaft wear at the spigott bearing...

chances are the adjustment of the throwout bearing fork is the problem . because of vibration that is the rattling that you are hearing. correct adjustment should be as follows.
#1...peddle travle should be no more than 1 1/2 inches
#2...the clearance between throw out bearing and fork no more than 1/2 inch
#3...clearance between fork and fork stops is 1/8 inch
also there should be grease zerts in the shaft that holds the fork and linkage make sure they are not dry of grease...please rate the solution....thanks

There is a problem with dirty injectors. Please clean those by putting high octane fuel in your car or putting an octane booster in your car also you may lube your cluch look for a valve itatake under the car for that.

Im a mechanic, i think you will find it will be the clutch release bearing on the clutch fork, when you push the clutch in it will push the fork which will push the clutch release bearing onto the clutch plate which rotating with the engine revs
