Let the system dry for quite a few days before trying to start, otherwise the computer could get ruined. Most water damages the coil packs and crank shaft position sensor. Hopefully water did not go inside your intake manifold and engine. It may not start. The best thing to do is let it thouroughly dry. Have a diagnostic test done to see if any sensors or circuits got ruined.

1. Clean it up.
2. Have your engine overhauled so you can get all
the water and moisture inside it.
3. Also change the transmission oil, as well as your
differential oil.
4. Also flush your gas tank and the fuel lines clean.
5. Change all the radiator water.
6. Replace the battery with new one.
7. Once you get your Vitara on the road, go to the
nearest service center to clean and shampoo the
car interiors and wax it shine.
Hope this will help you. E-mail to fix ya your comments. Thanks.

I drove thru floods in my 2003 vectra, will the computers be busted; how much $. Cheers


Your car would have to be completely submerged for water to get to the computers. Start with the alternator. Make sure it's clean inside and all the diodes are working. Check the engine oil for water. Will make the oil grey. Change it and the filter anyway. Check the rear differential for water. It will enter through the vent if the water was deep enough. Open the distributor and let it dry out

Help I have a 2011 Suzuki grand vitara and I bogged it today and water leaked through drivers and back passenger... the water was a little muddy and I want to take off the carpet how do I do this and also...


are you asking how to unflood the car of water?
You wrecked a 2011 car on purpose, wow , that takes guts,or were you i a big flood, bogging it says zero.
context helps.... dig?

soaked, how high?
id say take it to a paint shop and have them bake it dry.
really , after the shop wet vac treatment.
there are no drain plugs, if it had them you'd die of
carbon-monoxide poisoning. those be illegal, state side.

the sooner you get it dry, the less damage there will be.
paint shop , heat lamp bay ! time !
ooops...

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.
