same type that you are takeing out of it

The 1.9-litre diesel engine in the latest version is sourced from Renault and delivers a hefty 221 ft lbs of torque for reassuring operation both on and off road. This power makes the Grand Vitara a far more versatile proposition, with even enough power to pull a small caravan if required.

yes it means there was debris inside and now it all traveled together to the compressor pistons and locked them up must be replaced.

it has a drain plug and a filler plug but you should never need to change the oil ,but the oil to use is EP90 hypoid oil as gearbox has helical cut gears which need exteme pressure oil .a top up yes maybe but change the oil in a manual box is not something anyone does ,yes i know its in the 100.000 mile service check list but no one ever does it in a garage .because by this time the vehicle needs a new clutch and you have to drain the oil to do the clutch

Sounds like your Thermastat is Stuck Closed. Replace it and Should Solve your Problem.

If this does'nt then Check for water in your Oil and oil in your Water, This is a signof a Blown Head Gasket.

Pressure test the cooling system. The head gasket possiblity can be tested with dyes, or testing for exhaust gases in the cooling system.
What happens in this case is combustion gases escape into the cooling system and push coolant out, usually when under load, driving...If this is what is happening, the fix can be fairly costly.

this is a dealer only part, the fittings require special tools to remove, so this job is best left to a shop u trust or the local dealer.

Check the oil level with the dip stick! It would not be the first time that too little oil was put in an engine during a oil change! Also, the oil drain plug or the oil filter could be loose or missing!
Check for oil on the ground under the car or oil dripping from the undercarriage.

either the bulb has gone(do not touch the glass when replacing it.)or dirty connections for the bulb housing.

2003 Suzuki... | Answered on May 11, 2010

The grinding is usually related to a worn starter in need of replacement. There may be burrs or broken teeth on the flywheel. You would need to inspect.
The hard start could be anything.When was the last tune-up? How are the filters? Has the engine light come on? If so were any codes retrieved?
