Question about 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

My Suzuki Grand Vitara, is having trouble starting like every other. One morning I went out to go to work and it won't start not even a sound, lights and everything was okay, went to work, came home and it start right up, the next morning went to work with it, and came home and it ran great, the following morning, went out to start it and nothing. I was wondering if you have anything close to want it could be. I had it towed to the garage and they said it was something in the engine and couldn't be fixed, but they couldn't tell me want.

03 suzuki grand vitara starts up in morning after 10 minutes its warm drive to town shut off wont start back starts and dies starts and dies 3 times then starts and runs till next shut off


check whether you do have a problem with your cam or crank sensor. Or the fuel pump whether when it gets warm stop working,(loosing the pressure ) These things you do need a specialist to check the sensors and the fuel pump.

I have a 01 suzuki grand vitara w/automatic transmission it has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear shifts kinda hard. on start up in mornings sometimes will disengages out of gear altogether


A/T tranny's are complex and expensive devices.
I bet , its never been serviced, right?
why not do a full flush with new filter, if the filter (inside) is clogged
only hot ATF flows, easy. and causes low pump pressures.

do not go to Jiphphy lube or Quick lube joints, as they do bad work. (half arsed work)
go to a real shop with real ASE tech that know how to
service (fully) any automatic. (yes, they drop the pan)

2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara won't start engine


what engine, state engine size and country.
there can only be 3 ways, to fail.
bad engine (low compresssion, us the $20 tool at WOT and see over 170psi.
Bad spark
bad fueling.
just because spark coils (COPS?) work on other car , dont mean much.
what counts is your car , its a system.
the cops, have fast 5mS pulse when firing, you using a scope to see that?
Im so curious, why not to the time old test, use a real spark plug
attached to the COP end, spark plug shell grounded to engine metal
and crank, is spark good x4? or x6 if V6 (engine NOT STATED)
is it? then spark is good, leaving fueling.
do not touch the spark plug cranking, it can hit 100,000 volts.
I use a ground strap on the spark plug casing, hands free, or you can be hurt bad, by the spark or when you jump and cut arm backing off
on cars that flood, is it flooding?
I found my engine compression good, then found all 4 sparks fire good.
so i pull the fuel pump relay. killing fueling.
i then use "test fuel" to start engine (again, text book tests)
I use the new CRC brand of test fuel with top end oiling.
i spray it in the plenum, and it starts.
if the spark plugs are bad, (part oftune it up)
it may not start if flooded,
use WOT at the throttle (cuts fuel) and start any flooded engine.
if the spark tips are black and stink of raw fuel (wet with fuel)
that means flooding.
pull the fuel pump relay ,test fuel runs for 3 seconds. each time.
3 second spray max. each time.
if that works out, then find reason for flooding if flooding.
if not flooding, you find dry sparks.
then trouble shoot no fuel.
fuel pressure not near 30 PS?
fuel pressure too high say, 60, it will flood for ever.
there are only 3 tests.
and 4 counting wet /dry sparks.
the tests done, will put you on the correct path every time.
no guessing, no swapping parts to other cars.

2004 grand vitara will not start and solenoid will not click, Battery is fine.


Sounds like the ignition interlock at the transmission switch is out of adjustment or faulty. Bypass the key switch, at the starter, if it now cranks, it's in the interlock switch or the ignition switch.

My gran vitara has trouble starting in the morning, when it has been sat all night, then the rest of the day it is fine, does it need clean filters??or is the battery wearing out?or any other ideas you can...


You have a defective battery. Overnight, it leaks off power. In the morning when you start it by jump starting (or a push) and it runs, the alternator will charge it, making it good the rest of the day. Then again the power will be drained overnight due to the shorted battery components.
