I have a 2005 . The pcv valve was not working pro[perly. Hot exhaust was entering the oil pan and overheating the oil. The oil was in a crumbly mush in the pan when it was removed. almost 1/2 inch deep. almost had blocked oil pump pickup screen. also remove valve cover and check if oil is draining into lower engine properly. mine had the passages almost blocked that it drained down. I spent hours cleaning the inside of the engine to get all the oil mush out..

Your engine needs tune up if you havent done this for a long time, also be alert of overheating check your temp gauge next time it happens again on a stop light. be free to comment,

My 2005 Suzuki Forenza brake light and battery light on dash are on but battery and brakes are good.

you lost the operators guide,?
it costs $4 for a 1 day read. at

if you had that and read the warning light page you'd know...
did you check all fuses yet?
the battery light is really a battery charge lamp light.
if that lamp is out key on , only the lamp is bad.
if that lamp is out running,the alternator has shut down, (ask how to find true cause) or the engine is idling WAY below 800 RPM , is it?
brakes 101
the lamp serves many functions.
1: hand brake stuck on,.
2: low fluid in the MC Reservoir. (on master cylinder)
3: the front or rear brakes are weak or bad, (pressure diff, valve switch is active (bad news, do not drive)
4: ABS told , this lamp its not happy? (see FSM on topic)
if the 2st two are good, you then read the FSM. on brakes.

the fsm is here too , and has a 1 day pass....

is engine idling way too low ? not at 800rpm or more>?
that be first to fix, if true. and unsaid.
is the fan belt tight to the Alternator ?
is system voltage at 13.3 to 15v running, ( I BET NOT)
if NOT, fix that first , non of the electronics likes voltages much
below 10v, and well cause the engine to stall, as battery depletes.

Idle fluctuates when I stop at a stop sign or light

I had the same problem in my 2006 suzuki forenza, it ended up being that my valve cover gasket was leaking engline oil all over the place, into my spark plug reservoirs and everything. When my husband replaced the gasket and cleaned all of the oil that had leaked into my spark plugs and reservoirs the problem was solved, now it runs beautifully!! Good luck

Inconsistant idle

bad idle can be caused by 100 things, but for sure the ECU has lost control, we check all other things first then work dead idle last.
but the #1 cause of bad idle (you never said the low rpm hot?)
but EGR stuck open. is #1
other causes:
1; needs a tune up bad.
2: air fuel ratio bad, (bad fueling of any kind)
3: ECU stuck in limphome mode, is CEL glowing running? if yes, then pull the codes, better is a full scan now.

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?

Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.

I have a 2005 ford focus 2.0L it has a mis at idle but runs fine going down the road.PS I changed the control air vavle

are you sure it is a miss or a vibration? Focuses are famous for a vibration at idle because of the upper motor mounts. some get so bad that the whole dash vibrates at stop lights.

I have a 2005 suzuki forenza.. I loose coolant like its nothing no signs of leak.. Low rough idle..I replaced the plugs and wires and 02 sensor Engine light flashes at idle and stops flashing but remains...

Check your oil----is it very high? Put a piece of cardboard under your car overnight, see if you have any leaks externally. If not, then you have an internal leak, which indicates a blown head gasket.

Vibration in Steering Column at Idle

Engine vibration is the cause of this issue, it is the biggest complaint from many owners, changing the engine mounts will help, as mounts age the rubber gets hard and they don't absorb vibration like they should, new mounts help issue, but it will no stop it altogether. A faulty MAF will not cause vibration, just a hesitation on acceleration at times
