Gen II Suzuki Vitara 99-05

Postby aidan » February 27th, 2011, 7:10 pm

Hi Zuki 2nrs, I recently bought a 03 SGV with a G16, and enjoying it this far. I'm in the process of doing some basic maintenance and stuff, and decided to share some info that might be helpful to other owners.

The Vehicle: 03 SGV G16B

So in the process this far, i bought some original replacement parts for a basic tune up and some other stuff. So below is some parts and part numbers in case anyone needs them. Part numbers are suzuki genuine part numbers (SGP).

Body
Tailgate handle:
Image
SGP: 82850-65D13-5PK
Seen a lot of SGVs around with a broken tailgate handle, so if you are unlucky this is what you need.



Engine:
All the following are for the G16B only

Plug Wires:
Image
Got these from silversub (powerseller).

Spark Plugs:
Image
BKR6E-11
OEM recommended in the repair manual.

Timing Belt & Tensioner:

Image
Belt: 11407-71C00-000
Tensioner: 12810-71C02-000


Cylinder Gasket (Tappet Cover Gasket)

SGP: 11189-71C00-000

Spark Plug O Ring

SGP: 11179-71C01-000

Oil Seal

SGP: 09283-32042-000





Going to start on Thursday, will update how things work out after.

Why didnt you go with the iridium BKR6EIX-11? They're quite cheap now.

^Really? I'll look for them then. I saw that one in the repair manual, and got it the first place I checked so I bought them one time.

Around what price does a set go for?

I myself am using normal NGK plugs. Don't really see the point of putting plugs that are 4x the price. My car made 91.6whp on the Dyno and I've been getting 450-500km/tank so it doesn't seem to affect performance.

White smoke sounds like coolant.
Are you running coolant? If so, does the exhaust smell sweet? - The smell of burning coolant.
Indicative of head gasket failure or cracked head and/or block.

It may be remotely possible that your Throttle body has a pin hole leaking coolant into the intake manifold, but I consider this unlikely.

Disconnect the coolant lines to the TB and verify.
In Trinidad, we do not need the coolant lines on the TB to warm the air intake... we dont have winter.
Downside will be that you will have to clean the TB a bit more often.

Worn valve seals will cause a big puff of white smoke on start up.
The smoke will go away after a few moments.

Where did you get your valve seals changed?

I'm getting a little smoke when I start my baleno, same G16B so I was thinking it was a valve seal problem. Hardly any oil consumption so I'm not really concerned at all.
