SOURCE: Just did an engine swap on a 2008 Suzuki grand vitarA and I'm not getting current to the spark plugs everything else has current

Take every sensor,wiring and switch from the old engine and install on the new engine.If the old engine was running before the swap,the new engine should run with the good sensors,wiring and switches.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot

no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
we cant guess any of that.

Try moving the coils to see if the lack of spark moves cylinders. The cam sensor and PCM aren't going to affect single cylinders in most cases. If you decide that you have bad coils, make sure you buy good quality coils as COP ( coil over plug ) coils have a lot of components that can make them fail, particularly in the boot area. Make sure you get some dielectric grease for the inside of the boots as well so that the next time you need to service the plugs, the boots will slide off easily ( silicon paste works as well ). Airtex/Wells is a popular COP to replace these with and will run around $60/COP.

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine

what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

Suzuki grand vitara 2002 4cyl no spark.

THE PCM driver the COPS direct.
2.0L engine right> always post engine type. displacement.
the 2005 has no fire wall mounted ignitor, like older suz.
the ECU is direct drive to COPs.
in a real shop we check the input to the COP if its bad , the ecu or the wires from ECU to COP are bad.
there are only 3 parts. here. not counting the spark plug
ECU/PCM , wires. and COP.
only using a scope can you tell if the pulses to the coil are present.
they are fast pulse on the order of 3/1000th of a second.

Spark plugs and coil connectors remove replace

You mean to change the spark plugs and spark plug wires?
the plugs come pre gapped, NGK is the recommended brand for japanese cars.
Remove and replace une plug and wire at a time, that way you dont get mixed up, make sure wires are plugged back in properly.

Good luck.
