Question about Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

I have a Suzuki Grand Vitara that is due for its 45000 mile service, and this entails a complete change of ALL the pulleys in the engine and have quoted me 903.00 pounds for this service. My service manual says it only requires a cambelt/tensioner change and this comes to nowhere near 903.00.pounds. Am I right in thinking my local suzuki dealership has got it wrong or is this true? Regards............Ray Cook

Hi Ravi,
I would think you service book sounds more correct than the shop quote you've been given. The camshaft and crankshaft gears should only require replacement when worn, and this wear can be seen with the naked eye or felt with a finger. There should be no indentation from the back to the front of each tooth.
If they want to change them, ask to be shown the parts as they remove the timing belt but before any other disassemble. Usually the wear is uniform on all the teeth. The idler bearing may also need replacing together with the timing belt.

How to remove engine pulley on a 2006 suzuki grand vitara

Most of the time, you will need to remove the bolt holding the pulley on to the end of the crankshaft, then install a "pulley puller" to get it the rest of the way off.
Most car parts stores, and many automobile repair garages have "pulley pullers", and you can see what one looks like.
God bless your efforts.

When should i change the timing belt on my grand vitara there is 46000 kl/m on the clock,and also how often should i change the engine oil.

For most all timing belts, the 100,000 mile marker is when the belt should be changed. The belts are designed to work for 100+ thousand miles, but recommended checking/changing is at 100K miles.

Service engine soon is on XL7 2006

This is just a mileage-based reminder light that is turned on by the car's computer. The last time it was serviced and the light was on, the mechanic likely turned it off manually. The car is programmed to alert you when a specific number of miles have elapsed and the car is due for its next servicing (usually an oil change). It is NOT an indicator that there is a problem, so if your servicing is up to date, you can ignore it.

Which kind of engine oil used for grand vitara 2005 and when it should be replaced?

Your Suzuki requires 5w30 oil. I recommend you change the oil every 3k miles, although you can go a bit more than that if you want to. Always change the filter at the same time.
