SOURCE: 06 Suzuki Forenza make a loud clicking noise.

Your car is from 2006 how come it needs a timing belt ( do you drive 20K per year? ). What is wrong with the drive belt. The sound from belt is not a clicking noise.
Any way try to avoid that dealer. What a baloney.

When you start the car, open the hood try to identify where the noise comes from.

1-If it comes from the top engine, open your oil cap, to see if oils splattered from mechanical movements. Usually oil is not enough then it takes time to travel to the cam shaft and the lifters that why after making noise a while then the engine becomes quite since it gets lubricated. How long have you been from last oil changed?

2-If it comes from the front engine try to identify if it comes from Power steering or AC. Check Power-steering fluid to see it it needs filled up. Check this before starting the engine.
Try to turn on AC to see if the noise more or less so you can determine the AC clutch is bad.

Hope you can find the source for a good fix.

SOURCE: Radiator flush for my suzuki forenza.

For the do-it-yourself kind of mechanic, there is a kit sold by Prestone that will help you back flush the system using an ordinary garden hose. Available at most any auto-parts store, Walmart & such. It has the basic instructions on the container but I'll give you an overview.

You will need a large container to catch the anti-freeze coming out, You could drain it by removing the plug at the bottom of the radiator first , or remove the lower hose & get most of it out & then just flush the remainder, back-flushing is recommended.

There is a piece that fits into the radiator caps position that helps to aim the water towards a container but sometimes you can't use it due to size restrictions & limitations on space & have to catch the fluid with a drain pan as it overflows.

You will need to install a backflush connector "T". You simply cut into one of the 2 heater hoses, preferably the return line, and install that piece using 2 hose clamps to secure it. The garden hose hooks there.

The engine should be cool, you can crack a head or block by drowning a hot engine with ice cold water.

Just turn the water on slowly, once the anti-freeze stops coming out & it's just water, remove the drain pan & recycle what anti-freeze you can. Remember, most anti-freeze is fatal to birds & animals, including large dogs & children, so clean spills or at least dilute it with water until it is not a threat.

once done, drain the system & refill with the mix you prefer for your area, usually not less than a 50/50.

good luck.

SOURCE: When do I need to replace the timing belt? My

Hello michele151: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The manufacturer recommends replacing the belt at 60,000 miles and inspecting the belt at 30,000 miles. This would also be a good time to check the water pump as the timing belt turns it also. I always recommend replacing the timing belt with a timing kit as this way you also have the parts to replace the idler bearings at the same time. these are small bearings that turn a million times and do wear out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was of use. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Any suggestions on fixing front end noise in my 2005 Chrysler 300:

When you replaced the struts they should have changed strut mounts also, that is where noise comes from, check your reciept.
Also, I have seen mounts, tie rod ends and ball joints loosen over a period of time, so have all your bolts and nuts rechecked for looseness.

My 2004 suzuki forenza will not shift out of park unless a key is inserted into the shift lock release, is there any way to fix this or any suzuki dealerships near bakersfield?

Did you spill anything on the console?
I'm not familiar with this exact model but I used to be a tech at a Mazda dealer. We used to have to take apart consoles and clean big gulp goo out of the mechanism. There is a small electric solenoid that unlocks the shifter when you step on the brake. It does not have enough power to move the linkage when there is sticky goo all over it.
Take the top off the shifter. Clean all the moving parts. Pre-moistened kitchen wipes followed by a light coat of silicone spray was the secret recipe.

The catalogue of original parts for the suzuki forenza 2004 is necessary to me

Go to have every oem part since they apparently are a dealership that sells very inexpensively yet original parts online. I have used them to buy struts, rear headlights and transmission range selector switch with no problems.

I have a Suzuki forenza 2004 and it has been nothing but trouble for me. I recently took my car to Michales tires, to purchase a new set of tires and they told me my Front Strut Mounts were bad, and that...

Get a third opinion. I don't see how the Suzuki dealer person could diagnose a problem from a phone call.

Take off a wheel and see how much brake pad you have left. The pulsating sounds like the rotors need resurfacing. Replacing pads and resurfacting rotors shouldn't be a major expenditure.
