Question about 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara
There has been an issue of Suzuki engines smoking due to the PCV. valve or the baffles under the valve cover. One method of curing this is to place an oil separator between the vacuum line from the intake and the PCV. This will make for the need to keep an eye on it as it will fill up with oil eventually thus negating the purpose of placing it there in the first place. I think the big fix would be to remove the valve cover and check the oil baffles and filter therein. The problem is that oil builds up at the location of the PCV and is getting sucked into the intake via the vacuum hose to the intake. The quick fix? unplug the PCV and plug up the vacuum hose to the intake. This will get you by until you can get it to a mechanic. Anyway, That what I know. hope it helps

White smoke can be several things,one thing people usually miss while diagnosing white smoke is the modulator valve on the transmission. a bad modulator valve causes whit or greyish smoke from tailpipe.if thats not it,do you lose coolant? does your exhaust smell sweet? if so you could have a bad head gasket,antifreeze leaking from headgasket into exhaust side of motor.try these easy diagnostic tests 1st hope this helps!!!
