Question about Suzuki Vitara
Our vitara is over fueling, when you put your foot down you can smell petrol and it's in the air filter housing if you take the top off. it's fitted with a Mukini carb, I can't find a manual that covers this carb.

Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.

hi first check the level of fluid by pulling the dip stick out . clean it and put back in to c if anything left in it or not.
if no oil is left open the engine cap and buy the right fluid and put in it and than check the oil level by parking your car on level surface.
if u want to replcae the engine oil just open the bolt underneath the engine and drain the oil and close it before u feed in the oil.

For tropical countries, motor oils with SAE 20W50 viscosity is commonly used. For cold countries, SAE 10W30 viscosity oils are used. You may also use oil of SAE 15W40.

I guess you have an HDI engine (possibly RHZ) as this fault is very common on that model. Quite possibly it will just disappear. It is not likely to be the turbo. Swap the electrovalve (pneumatic solenoid) which controls the turbo with one of the others (there are three beside each other on the inside of the wing, and see what happens. If the fault moves elsewhere that confirms electrovalve fault - so replace valve it.
If not check the vacuum hoses and test things such as the EGR for vacuum leaks. Another possibility is a faulty (or even just dirty) MAF. This is very easy to remove- it is on air intake - so remove and clean with wWD40 or similar.
