One of the examples is: Nous viendrons à 9 heures. Ça vous va ?

Instead of Ça vous va ? would you say Ça vous êtes? Thank you

This question relates to:
French lesson "Aller à = to suit someone (expressions with aller)"

Bonjour Carole !

No, in that context, ça vous va ?does it suit you ?
and you wouldn't be able to substitute être here.

Similarly, you wouldn't say Je suis bien to express I am fine, but Je vais bien.

I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Carole,

In Ça vous va, the subject is ça and the object is vous, that's why the verb has to be third person singular va rather than second person plural allez. And as Aurélie said, it has to be the verb aller, not être.
