This is the second time I've had this problem. I thought the dealer fixed it the first time, however it just returned a day or so ago. When the AC is on, and only after it's on for an hour or so water will slowly drip in the passenger side of the car. Also, while turning left there is a rushing water sound from the passenger side of the car.

try burping the cooling system a few times or could be your thermostat. as far as the belt squeek, you can take a litle bit on silicone grease and put it on the belt in one spot with the car off. let it run for a little bit and the squeek should stop
Hi this sounds weird does the smoke come out from the front engine covers? the squealing could be the cambelt trying to turn a semi or completly ceased waterpump which would cause the smoke after a while, also without the waterpump working properly the engine will leak water and anti freeze out the overflow and overheat really quickly
the pulley tentioner on the power steering belt, i ve done lots of them, they are self tentioning and over time can cause to much tention on the belt, if this the case when you have the steering at full lock it should squeal the loudest.
If they cant find anything wrong, what do you want? I dont know why anyone would turn the wheel lock to lock like that. If the fluid level is good, there cant possibly be air in it. If it runs bad, and the dealer is no help, find a different dealer. If there is a problem, they will fix it.
Your actions couldn't damage anything...
Should be a shame you may not turn a cars weel on small sinuous roads ;-)
Bring that car to your dealer, and describe the problems exactly! ( When you hear the sound and when happens what )
Do a test-drive with a mecanic of yoru dealer
Tell your dealer you'll contact the importer if he doesn't solve all the problems
Sounds like you bought the wrong hose. also check the o-rings & be sure to use new ones when replacing the hose. Be sure you have it in right & not cross threaded. If it's cross threaded,you got a major problem. First it will always leak,second you probably ruined the pump or rack where it screws in. If it's engine oil,then buy a dye from the auto parts store of choice & have it checked by a shop with an ultra violet light.
I think that the difficulty in shifting is unrelated to the squeal. I had a '99 Swift that had belt squeal all the time first thing in the morning, and I did not want to tighten the belt too much as it is bad for the alternator and water pump bearings. However, I did figure out a way to make it *******. When the noise happened, I would make the DRLs turn off by pulling the handbrake up just one click, and the noise would immediately cease. If this works for you, then you have identified the problem. It seems as though the alternator loads up too much. Not a big deal though.
As for the shifting, check to see that your clutch cable is properly adjusted. It should not be too loose or too tight, it should be set so that there is about a 1/4 inch of play at the clutch pedal.
Good luck with your Swift, they're great little cars!
