My vehicle is chugging. I think it's the fuel filter and hoping it's not the fuel pump. I can often smell fuel in the vehicle.

today after driving 25kms i stopped the car and heard a sound like air blowing out under pressure it was coming from the rear of the motor, there was also an oil burning smell, when i was driving back there was a grinding noise, could have been coming from the crank and only when i pushed down the accelerator, it steadily got worse so I stopped and there was burning oil smoke coming from the motor, there seemed to be a small amount of oil sprayed out of the fly wheel, any ideas?

What is the location

Light's are a big issue with my car. Back up light never worked. Bulbs all are good. Now my head lights are a big problem. I found a burned/melted fuse. Changed it. Now the fuss seems loose. I have to get out and wiggle the fuse to get the light to work. It goes off and on.. In low beam it's like I have no lights. I'm thinking they need to be set up. I will do that when I have Lights. I'm not sure if I will need a new fuss harness. I live in Mexico and bought the car here. Is heat a factor. I notice lots of vehicles here have lights out, Help Please and Thanks

i have a vitara 1.9 dbiss seems to be loss of power

I recently had the rotars and brakes changed on my 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara JLX. Now, everytime I brake the ABS activates, the brakes on the front driver side grind, and the pedal is stiff and pulsates. It's only on the driver side.No matter the road condition.It's terrifying.
Also, when I go over 60 mpg the ABS and brake light come on, but when I have it read there aren't any errors showing.
I've had the assembly checked, all is fine. I've had it to 5 different shops, including a dealer, and no one can read any errors. I've had the sensor replaced. The problem persists. The mechanics have all said the same thing: Just start replacing stuff until you find the problem.

Any ideas?
