From your description I would think that water got into the fresh air vents and down into the blower motor that has now burned out . Look there for your problem.

I have a vitara jlx se 1.6i 16v and i have a problem starting it when u turn the key to start it the engine turns over fuel is gettig to plugs the plugs are sparking the timing is all spot on iv changed...


Sounds to me like your dizzy is 180 degrees out.
Too explain: Suzuki does things oddly... the timing marks on the cam sprocket line up when #4 is ready to fire. But then they have you time the distributor to #1. to get it ready for #1 to fire you need to turn the crank one turn. This oddity causes many others to have your issue. So you can check... If you line up the marks on the cam, the dizzy rotor should be pointing at the wire going to #4.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

Drives fine for 3 weeks then suddenly it wont start.the battery has been checked and the alternator and their ok.the battery is definitely run down when it wont start as it wont turn the starter ???.


Check for corrosion just inside the ends of the cable going from batt+ to starter. Corrosion can build about 2" inside of the cable(not visible) the best way to tell is to take the cable off and try pulling it in opposite directions to see if it seperates.

Hope this gets you started!

SINGLE MOM CAR WONT START!!!I DON"T HAVE TIME 4 THIS!!!!


so you turn the key and the starter does nothing... i would suggest that you attempt to start it while someone hits the starter with a hammer... not that gently but don't break the starter either.

If it suddenly turns over you need a new starter. and right away because using a hammer only works a few times.
