IF the suzy engine has variable valve control V VT or mivec or what ever it is for a suzy It will be a toss up but for my money I would pick the mitsi engine as they have been developed for off road racing

SOURCE: My Suzuki Liana 2007 (1.3L with M13A engine) jerks at low speed.

I cant say I have ever even seen one of these, but lets start with this; Most vehicles can tolerate quite a lot of moisture (driving in heavy rain) but when it is 'flooded' with water, even garden hose pressure, that water is going to get into places it shouldn't. Your mechanic may may be going down the right path but try this first; remove spark plugs and replace if they have 50k or more miles or any are dark brown to black on the porcelain around center electrode. When you gain access to them and after turning them out about 1.5 turns, blow out water and/or dirt from around them with compressed air, this keeps it from entering plug hole. While you are using air, blow out spark plug wires/boots on both ends. As I first said, I am not familiar with this engine at all so I am not sure if you have a single coil or multiple coils. Blow out any water in any connections to these if possible. Replace boots/plug wires if they show any sign of arcing/excess wear (cracks,tears,brittle,torn) or more than 50k miles.When reassembling use a good quality dielectic silicone grease To help 'weatherproof' them.Make sure you did not damage or dislodge any other hoses/tubing/ect.. when cleaning.Hopethis helps! Please rate me. Thanks!

Try these easy things...take off clean and reconnect the battery cables, take to Auto Zone for a FREE computer hook up. More than likely if the battery hook up doesn't work it's the oxygen sensor.

SOURCE: valve timing check

Chain drive. Unless the engine's been apart, why would the cam/valve timing change?
Valve clearances are another matter, and unless you want to remove the camshafts, get a mechanic who has the proper Suzuki tool to do them for you. You can measure the clearances, but the shims are between the cam lobe and the valve bucket, and the special tool holds the bucket down whilst changing to a thicker or thinner shim.

There is a noise coming from the rear end of my 2006 suzuki grand vitara


Hi, The Suzuki Grand Vitara is a superb vehicle, several reasons can be applied to rear end noise.

Most are not expensive or difficult to repair. However a few can be expensive.
Lets look at the most common, wheel bearings, are the usual component to wear and require replacement, if it is a wheel bearing, its much better to have both wheel bearings replaced.

A wheel bearing will become noisy at certain speeds and give of a distinctive noise, best noticed on a flat road.
However a repair shop can easy diagnose a wheel bearing for you.
Other problems could be found within the differential back axle, this can again be easily diagnosed by the engineer looking for a wheel bearing fault.

I hope this proves to be helpful
