Question about 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I believe you are stating when you start the vehicle you hear a ticking sound from the motor. After a few minutes it goes away. I ahve 2 grand vitara's. A 2001 and 2002. Both had this issue. On the 2002 it was a faulty cam belt tightener that was taking too long to tighten. This was replaced under warranty as it worsened over time. The 2001 still has the issue but goes away. Some times this is also and can be a sign of oil not getting circulated quick enough once you start your engine. I believe this is the problem with the 2001. It now has 300000 plus kms on it and still does it. No long term issues with this vehicle. I would suggest you have someone look at it regardless of comment I have posted.
