You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

5-speed manual. Why no power from the ignition to the motor?


In a Suzuki of that age (assuming you have the OHC engine), the most likely culprit is a broken timing belt.

Timing chain or belt


which engine?
gen 3 swift had these engines.
1.2 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (petrol)
1.5 L I4 (petrol)
1.6 L I4 (petrol)
1.3 L I4 (diesel)
so which one? never work on any car engine, until you know what's there. if I open my hood and look up, there is a sticker there states ENGINE in this car, but that is USA< other countries, have stickers on fire wall or ?
if in USA the VIN has the engine code, but you never stated country.
suz has like 55 engines. but above is for swift.

Just tried to fill up with diesel and cannot insert the fuel nozzle


this is for safety reasons and it has every car on unleaded petrol! It is against the substitution of diesel to gasoline change. had to write what you want then to put diesel to gasoline car. When was your mistake, you see that it work is it and save you from a very large car repair.

2001 vw golf gt tdi is struggling to start when cold and sometimes hot..when started it struggles 2 stay ticking over at 900 revs...what can i do??please help


golfs coldstart system works when you open door/shut door/put key in hole and turn on (in that order)if you delay puting belt on for longer than say 30 secs the coils go cold,hence poor starting.if engine labours after cold start try using (really)one gallon of petrol in tank to clean injectors.
british army put petrol (30%)in diesel tanks of challenger tanks in arctic
to stop fuel freezing.....most parts replacement jockeys in garages will say if you put diesel in tank it will have to flushed out.lot of bollocks.
trust me.have put petrol in by mistake loads of times,only get hot start
problems if you put in too much.

Petrol instead of diesel


Hi

This is not quite recommended, and to do a 100% job, you should really drain the tank, and refill with just diesel, and renew the fuel filter.

But if it is running acceptably, drive it gently, and keep refilling with diesel.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please.

John.
