SOURCE: Leaking coolant water

This L shaped hose is a drainage for the heater core compartment. Once we removed the panel to the heater core it was obvious the heater core was leaking into this compartment. We changed the heater core out and the problem has been solved :)

SOURCE: coolant leak from rear of engine in bellhouseing area

Sounds like you have a freeze plug that has rusted out. And it is located in side the bell housing behind the flywheel. You will need to remove the transmission and the flywheel to gain access to the freeze plugs. There are two of them at the rear of the engine above the center line of the crankshaft. One to the left and one to the right.

SOURCE: 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

Have a leak underneath back of seats two plugs leaking coolent

seems gravity is allowing the front dash, heater core to leak and run to rear.
the heater core is in the dash HVAC box,
that big ugly black monster under the dash
it has the A/C evap (cooler/dryer core) and the heater core.
the heater core or the simple 2 hoses fail and leak.
how to fix that. you or whom?????
well learn to service HVAC?
pops to mind....
look and find if its the hose or core, this takes careful looking
on a hot running engine (natural pressure hot allows this to happen)
then if its just a hose,drain ENGINE coolant and cut them off, gently.
do not reef them off, hard, or you will wreck the CORE.
cut them off and put them back, and fill and burp the system.

if the core is bad.
you need to read the book first.
nobody here can guess skills or motivation. or tools you have.

the real FSM is only 4 bucks to read (posted 100s of times now)

Troubleshooting for stalling on 2005 Suzuki Forenza

vast checks. really!
EGR stuck open?
but can save the stall, with a fast right foot action,
using the wrong cap with a non suz, missing vacuum breaker will stall the pump an then engine.
stalls can be.
1: engine issues, (compression bad on one or more cyl.)
2: bad spark
3: bad fueling. in that order.
if compression good and spark at all cylinders are good.
the you check fueling.
1: are spark plugs dry , white or black carbon, and/ or dripping in fuel?
reading spark plugs works on all gas engine. 100 years span. to now.
Google how to read spark plugs.
this engine is EFI. and as such can do lots of things.
leaking injectors. clogged , or dead.
low fuel pressure.
too high fuel pressures.
at the least

2005 forenza mystery

White smoke from the tailpipe is most always an indication of coolant getting into the combustion chamber(s) somewhere. Common causes can (depending upon engine design) include the following:

-- blown cylinder head gasket
-- loose cylinder head capscrews
-- warped cylinder head
-- cracked cylinder head
-- cracked cylinder block
-- cracked, eroded or cavitated cylinder liner
-- blown intake manifold gasket
-- cracked intake manifold
-- failed EGR cooler
-- failed aftercooler (air-to-water type)

I am sure that the list above is not all-encompassing, nor is it intended to be. I mention all of those possible causes to illustrate that contrary to popular belief, it is not always a simple diagnosis.

Now to your engine... If I remember right, that engine has an aluminum head (I can't remember about the block). Aluminum engine castings are subjust to increased expansion and warpage when heated as compared to cast iron ones. In other words, they are more susceptible to damage when overheated. This can happen on a local basis without a general overheat beinbg noted due to "hot sposts" within an engine -- for example, a cylinder running excessively lean.

I would start by pinpointing which cylinder(s) are involved by pulling the sparks plugs and looking for indications of coolant on the plugs and in the cylinders. Colant signs in adjacent cylinders will normally indicate a problem common to those cylinders. Also check for signs of the coolant in the crankcase -- and don't count on it looking "milky" on the dipstick. Pull the dipstick and check it, of course, looking for the traditional milky oil, and/or rust, but also check further by draining some oil from the crankcase. If coolant has collected there, it will generally settle to the bottom unless the engine has been run extensively.

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.
