SOURCE: Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Filter Replacement Disaster

Four or six cylinder engine and behind or front of the oil filter? Looked under my GV 2007 2.7 V6 and can not locate a shiny metal box next to the oil filter. Only thing that was shiny was the exhaust manifold and oil sump which are quite hard to break or puncture. If it was the oil sump you will have to remove it and get it welded as a bog will not hold on heated engine parts.

SOURCE: Oil light comes on at certain times

You did check the oil level parked on level ground right? My guess is that your level is either low, or your sensor/oil pressure switch, is getting too sensitive, and may need to be changed. Unless you've changed grade of oil lately. When you stop, your oil in the pan, shifts forward in the pan & starves the oil pick-up momentarily, so if your switch/sensor for oil pressure looses pressure too much during that time, it turns on the light. If your due for an oil & filter change, have it done & make sure it's up to full mark on level ground.If that doesn't cure it, I would change oil pressure switch, oil sender, or oil pressure sensor, whatever it is referred to on your vehicle.

SOURCE: engine oil mixed in coolant

this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.

SOURCE: coolant leak on back side of engine. 94 susuki sidekick 4cyl 4x4

The back side of the cylinder head has metal fitting/pipe connected to a hose that goes to the heater system inside the cabin, the hose sometimes cracks off just behind the clamp holding it to the metal fitting/pipe.

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara just had the engine replaced, but it is burning oil out the tailpipe the warranty company is saying it is the value covers, is this true


Valve covers leaking oil OUT the tail pipe, no way in hell! Valve covers can leak oil onto the exhaust manifold, but there is no way its going to get into the exhaust from there and out the tail pipe.

Bad valve guides and/or valve guide seals would put oil from the top of the head and into the cylinders. That is a far bigger job than just replacing valve cover gaskets.

Don't let the warranty company give you any more of that kind of BS.

Smoke coming from the left side of the engine


this may be due to an oil leak getting onto the manifold or the manifold is cracked and exhaust gas is building up in the engine.

if smoke is intence and black this indicates oil.
if it is mid and grey blue this indicates exhaust gas


get checked by a mechanic


i hope this was useful.

I just got an oil change on my 2003 Suzuki Vitara in 24 hours later my service engine soon light came on anyone have an idea what the problem might be?


Check the oil level with the dip stick! It would not be the first time that too little oil was put in an engine during a oil change! Also, the oil drain plug or the oil filter could be loose or missing!
Check for oil on the ground under the car or oil dripping from the undercarriage.

I have a 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara and lately it has smelled like gasoline inside the vehicle after it has been parked for awhile and the odor also permeates throughout the garage. There are no visible...


If I were you ,I would remove the plentum and make sure the injectors are not leaking onto the intake manifold and creating a pocket of fuel,witch could cause a engine fire while driving.

No power steering and smoking from hood


[1]the power steering pump might have siezed up causing the belt to slip to burn on the pulley. [2]or the pump broke the shaft internally and some fluid is leaking out and hitting the exaust[3] a hose has sprung a leak and it is spaying oil on the exaust manifold
