High pitch droning sound


There is a metal tab on some pads that contacts the rotor to make hideous noises telling the driver they need to replace the brake pads. It's in your owner's manual.

I have a Diesel 4WD Grand Vitara. Was driving normally and then all of a sudden it would not start. Previously when I tried to start it there was a little whirring noise and then when the light sequence...


you failed to say, does crank, when it don't start?
and btw, the fuel pump on most cars only run cranking or running
some run for 3 seconds, key on, but you'd miss that fact. using
only one person.
the key word here is crank, does it crank as full speed, via the cranking starter motor. that is the engine cranks spins fast.
on this car it will spin min 250 RPM, cranking, and uses large
battery current , so on diesels it takes a very strong battery to start
and working glow plugs.

Revs seem higher than normal in my 2005 Suzuki Swift Sport (3.3rpm in 5th @ 100km/hr) - is this normal? I also have a really high fuel consumption rate


2 issues,
1: MPG, you failed to say MPG, 15mpg? or 39? is 39 low?
what MPG? you never said it?

2: rpm cruise. (what drive line, A/T M/T ?) what tranny?
first google hit , is this it? this yours?
engine: 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol, 75 kW/133 Nm
Transmissions: 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, FWD

3300 RPM in 5th and 100km
if you wish to now what is normal, find the final drive ratio, listed in the FSM. Id say this is normal. typical of tiny engines, with low torque.at lower RPMs.

if you have the A/T and IF the trannywere to slip, the TCM will infact throw DTC codes, telling you it did.
IS IT? (scan tools show you this fact as might that glowing CEL lamp on the dash, on driving.

RPM
my 1.6L spins 3000 RPM , at below tranny options valve counts.
54/59mph (104km/hr = 59) 5sp MT.
64.6 4sp A/T (goes fastest due to more aggressive OD + axle ratio is lower.)
56/.53 2sp A/T
see how drive line effects RPM? so will your cars options.

Vibrating noise at 2-3 rpm during acceleration after car warm up.


Is there a way you can Clarify your Question? There is a lot of words that are not meaning anything.. Is 2-3 RPM an accurate comment or are you meaning 2,000 - 3,000 RPM ?
