I do not think the Vitara came out with 1.5l motor, if you have the V6 motor it is a chain driven motor and they are known to be on the noisy side which according to Suzuki is normal until it gets very noisy!!!

Timing marks


Autozone.com has free repair info. They gave a great decription of the 3 timing chains and marks for my 2001 V6 2.5L engine. The motor ran perfect with their help.

1995 GMC safari V6 When does the timing belt need replacing


sorry i didnt see the TIMING belt in the title -
GMC recommends replacing Timing belt at 71,000 miles....
however your particular vehicle may have a timing CHAIN.

The 4.3L engine is the only engine covered by this guide which uses a timing chain and gear (sprocket) assembly to turn the camshaft. The 2.5L engine uses a direct gear drive (without a chain).

Only replace the chain if after inspecting it - it is worn or damaged!
You don't adjust timing chain-you replace it or the tensioner

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for taking the time to answer your FREE question.

Changing timing belt


My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions. I have only been on this site for the past 4-months as a free contributor.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.


Standard Answer for Timing Belts/Chains: 100,000 to 120,000 miles is when the Timing Belts/Chains start malfunctioning or failing. Some people want to go ahead and change them before malfunctions/failures happen. I just replaced mine on 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan which just turned 100K. Most Timing Belt/Chain failures will cause more costly engine damage when these fail, including a need to replace/rebuild an entire engine.

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
