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: V6 grand vitara, could noisey tappets be caused by

Unlikely. The hydraulic lifters used in this model have been used across the Suzuki range for many years and have proven very reliable. The most likely cause for the noise is lack of oil pressure to the VLAs (valve lash adjusters). This can be due to the incorrect viscosity oil being used, or lack of servicing leading to clogging of the oil passages in the cylinder head or in the VLAs themselves with sludgy oil residue. There are a number of snake oils which can supposedly help soften and flush this residue out, and it would be worth trying this and changing the oil before deciding to change the VLAs - which are very expensive to purchase (24 per engine!), and are a very difficult operation to change with the engine in the car.

SOURCE: 2006 grand vitara - steering wheel locked - ignition wont turn

It sounds like sticking lock tumblers since beating on it seems to make it work once in awhile. No other items in the column will die out and work again upon pounding on it

I have a 2006 suzuki grand vitara,are the oxygen sensors the same in either bank of the engine?

Well, the upstream sensors are the same and the downstream are the same - so it takes two of each.
For the record you should never have to replace more than one or two sensors at one time. And trouble codes do not tell you the sensors have failed.

Oil knock in hot weather

Does it knock hard or just rattle loud,? A lot of cars are noisy till the oil gets pumped up top. I hate to see people floor when they first start up, very bad idea, no oil up top, anyway, your oil weight goes by the outside temperature. If you live in Florida, it gets hot, I use 10w-40 year round, up north is a different story, 5w-30 in the winter would be fine, but summer time you could go heavier no problem. My brother uses straight 30 weight with a bottle of Marvel mystery oil as the 5th qt. The stuff works great. It cleans the inside of your engine like you wouldn't believe. He is one of these guys that takes the oil filters apart to check them out. Hope this helps.

possible bad oil level sensor. The shifting problem is most likely unrelated.
