1991 Vitara 1.6 Carb fault

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.

There is a module called "idle limiter". Sounds as if it is bad!

I suggest either a "Haynes" or "Chilton" repair manual. They are both very informative concerning complete engine tear down.

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.

SOURCE: transmission fluid change vitara

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.

Suzuki grand vitara three door, Why does the filler cap draw in air when removed on my 2010 vitara

Check for Evap System Codes

The fuel tank should most likely have about
1 or 2 lbs of pressure & only when the computer
runs a test, does the evap purge valve by the
engine open, to draw out fuel fumes to be burned
in the motor,so NO Vacuum or Pressure at the cap
when the car is off

I would guess the vent valve solenoid is a possible issue,
if you can not fill the tank without the pump nozzle kicking off,
or the fuel tank pressure valve is bad

Have to have ALL of the Evap System Components tested
& the system Smoke Tested

I do not know if any of those items can be controlled with a
scan tool,asian vehicles do not provide all the data features
as we have on say GM Ford & Chry

Would a faulty electric fuel pump relay be the reason there is no power going down to the fuel pump in a 2002 suzuki grand vitara 2.0 rhz diesel engine

To test fuel flow, have a 2nd person stand over air filter (air filter housing open) with a can of starting fluid in one hand. Don't give any throttle, then 2nd person gives 1-second squirt into air filter while you're turning starter motor (no throttle). When engine catches, immediately give one third to one half throttle. Just before it dies, 2nd person should give another short squirt of starting fluid to keep engine from dying. If throttle won't keep engine running and only starting fluid keeps it running, then yes, no fuel is going through fuel lines. Either its a fuel pump issue or maybe there's restriction because of clogged dirty fuel filter. If it starts but runs rough and has black exhaust smoke, then its clogged or dirty fuel injectors.

Most cars today have the pump in the fuel tank so it will need to be droped to get the fuel pump in and out.As far as the filter if it has one in the tank it may not have another one. If it does you will find it when under the car doing the pump.Some are located on the fram rail.

Where is the thermostat housed in a gran vitara 2002 petrol

Inside the housing that the BOTTOM hose goes onto. I assume you have a 2L 4 cyl or 2.5L V6 petrol version. I don't know about the TDi (if available).

Changing Fuel filter on Susuki grand vitara, 2 pipes on the top of filter housing prevent it from turning. can I remove them and how. will it need bleeding. David from Yorkshire

Hi David,
To remove and replace the filter remove the two top pipes, they are held by a push clip. pop of get a socket to fit the nut and bar with ratchat apply pressure on the extention bar and very slowley turn anticlockwise. Lift the lid off to pull old filter out gently.Look at bottom of filter and undo the bottom drain hole bolt. Drain fuel out of the housing and make sure housing is clean. nip bottem bolt up very light finger tight no force or you will break Put back the rubber seal on the bottom side of of filter and gently reinsert filter back into the housing. Put a new rubber Oring to hold the main seal, put the lid back on, and gently turn clockwise to refit the filter.
Re connect pipes.
Turn ignition on for 30 seconds, turn off then turn back on to purge air from fuel lines and start the vehicle.
