New to driving a Jimny, and a petrol vehicle for that matter. But not new to manual. Been driving manual diesels most of the time before I got the Jimny.

Guess it's time then. Assuming it has never been changed before I got it by the other two owners.

Didn't know that.

Must I revv up to 4000 in first gear?

I don't know if it is adjusted correctly. I'll just have to send it to Suzuki either way.

Alright, sounds promising. I did short shift at first but after I had exhaust leaks to repair and did some googling I found short shifting is a bit bad for the cats, my father told me 3000 is best for petrol engines.

I suggested 4,000 rpm as that should be at about max. torque but as others have said, it sounds as if a new clutch is the order of the day.

The vvt doesn't come on till around 4000 rpm and is good for another 2000 rpm after that. These are small engines and need many rpm to make power and torque. Don't be afraid of the top half of the rev range.

The last of the gen3s, probably.

Thank you for the input. I'll need to make absolute sure about the case before stating it to my father (owner). He will just say it can't be, so I'll need solid proof, and he doesn't like what people suggest on the internet.

This Jimny hardly accelerates above 3000 rpm except in 5th gear I can get to 100km/h at about 3200 rpm.

Then it needs an Italian tune up also known as a good long thrashing up a motorway. When I first got my current Jimny off my parents it too didn't like the top of the rev range, it got much better for being used properly. A Jimny is not a big lumbering diesel it has more in common with a sports bike.

That proves what Lambert is saying. They need revs and lots of them to get the best from the engine.

The M series engine when properly tuned doesn't start to do anything interesting before 3000 rpm. If its VVT then that kicks in at about 4000 meaning they are clearly intended to be up in the revs before any action. Theres plenty of M series engines flying about in swifts with a 8000+ rev limiter set. Ive set mine at 6600, which is very conservative for what it can do. 

Italian tune up time without telling the owner ;-)

Need to check what type mine is, think it's an M type. What's with the 16 valves in such a small engine too?

I'll try the Italian tune up, just don't have a lot of open roads out here in the country.
