Question about 2004 Suzuki Vitara
Had the same problem with my Grand Vitara XL7.
It was put on a computer to diagnose problem. Turned out to be a problem in the emmissions. sensor. Reason turned out to be that it is only driven gently and as it is a V6 2.7ltr engine, it needs to be driven with the revs going over 3000 occasionally.
We took it on a drive on a long straight road in 3rd gear only and kept it going none stop with revs going over 3000 for a distance of 5 miles. This cured it.
It was a build up of carbon or something like that, what we did had the effect of clearing it.Blowing out the blockage.
We did not do this lightly, we were advised to do it by the mechanic.He warned us that it might be a bit noisy and said if we did not fancy doing it he would do it for us.
Problem has never come back since.
