I have tried to turn the camshaft on a 2004 Suzuki Forenza to the timing mark but it would not line up it would not turn anymore what should I do


Not knowing how far your cam timing is off, your valves may be hitting the top one of a pistons. That may be why cam wont turn anymore.
May be best to back up the cam a bit, remove the spark plugs & with screw driver or wooden dowel probe the cylinders to see which piston is near the top.
Then rotate crank a bit to lower piston down the cylinders DO NOT USE STARTER to rotate engine while timing belt is off or valve damage may occur.

The timing belt snapped at a high RPM


a used engine may be the way to go. call junk yard or look on ebay for one. u can also just get a used engine head instead of redoing yours it would be a lot cheeper. I think 1500 is to much just for parts for a 2005 car

2005 Suzuki Forenza timing belt breakage


hi im not sure on this particular model but there a few easy ways to check.... take the spark plugs out, remove the broken belt, shine a light down the holes and look for dammdge, if you cant see anything you can turn the crank but it is a tricky job because you can ruin the engine so if your unsure get a mechanic to do it.. or your other alternative is to remove the head and have a look but you will need a new head gasket kit, timing belt and tensioner kit etc .. it is important that you do not turn the engine over when the belt is disconected in any way UNTIL you know for sure that valves wont hit pistons, even bending a valve will not be very noticable but when its all back together you will deffinately notice and will have to pull it all back apart

Overheating, low fuel efficiency, fuel smell in cabin


Sounds like coolant ports in the engine block is gunked up. Did you maybe notice the coolant ports when you changed the head gaskets? And, or, change the radiator cap,if you haven't already done so, I've seen them heat up over that too.

Need to ajust timing belt .we changed water pump and my son took belt and pully off


Take out #1 cylinder spark plug. make sure the piston head is at the very top of cylinder by moving the crank pulley by hand. When the piston is at the top check the crank, cam and any other pulley for little notches, these are your timing marks. Now position all the marks the same way as the crank, make sure they don't move. put the belt on and there you go.

1999 Saab 9-5 4cyl wagon overheats


Almost for sure the head gasket. You don't have to replace the engine, but pull the head, have it leveled, get a new gasket and head bolts and replace.

This can be done without removing the engine, but it is a bit tricky. Very tight getting the head off to the front. If you have done some mechanics, can be done. I have done this once. It did take a bit.

Please let me know if you still have the car and we can talk.

Could be a few other issues, but these are very rare. Cracked head, etc...
