My suzuki vitara 1997 has a idling problem starts ok then warms up and idel gets ruff 400 to 800rpm will run ok then run ruffly..

1: tune it up this decade?
2: EGR stuck open, the EGR main is well hidding behind
the intake man, at fire wall
it must not stick open
it can screw up 10 ways from sunday
but cleaning it is a 50k mile service point, in the opr guide.

400 rpm is usually EGR caused
it must NEVER be open at idle.

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.
