Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has identified a fault in one of the car's systems. Getting the codes will show what the computer noted, so a problem/potential problem can be addressed. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Is there a timing belt and performance difference on the 1.6L 16V engine type ? i was told that there's something to do with E/I position? sidekick/vitara 1994 lwb 4 doors if it matters.


no, the E and marks are for 2 engines.
E mark for G16B (16valve MPI engine)
I and E marke are for the twin cam engine, (see link for deeper facts)
see?
if you use the wrong marks, the engine will not run
and compression falls by 1/2 from 180 psi to 90 or less.

the G16A is different 8v head, yours is the 95HP, 16valve head.

SUSUKI VITARA 2008 ENGINE


Hello, I think Suzuki offered Peugeot/Citroen Diesel engines in the earlier models but started offering Renault Diesel in 2006. I believe that the gas motors were all Suzuki.
If you find that this info to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241
