Question about 2005 Suzuki Forenza
My check engine light came on the other day and I had it checked. It was because of the throttle position sensor. How hard is that to fix myself because it is not covered under warranty and what would I need to buy?
You don't replace parts because you got a code
You test the sensor the code points to
If it fails a test --then you change it
You can change a tps if you have screws holding it on
Have to heat the thread locker with a hair drier to remove
Most have T20 Torx Head Screw
A repair shop is you choice if you have to ask
Need to use the internet to study OBD2 Systems
They have only been with us for 18 year & OBD 1
for 15 before that. Get up to speed

Sounds like an intermittend problem. Once the engine light comes on, the computor stores a code in it and can be retrieved whether the light is on or not, called a pending code, I have done it plenty of times.I would take the car back, or to another dealer and tell them to hook up a code scanner to it.It's under warranty, they should do further testing.
Once the warranty runs out, you are on your own, you pay for what ever is wrong, and can be expensive.

They have been doing well and there problems are fewer than most. Sounds like you have a pretty good car. Have those trouble codes checked and repaired though so it does'nt cause problems down the road. Good luck.

Sounds like you may be passing moisture to the O2 sensor. #1 make you sure you are using a GOOD grade of Gasoline. You may need to add a bottle or 2 or DRI-gas to you gas tank. A good bottle of LUCAS fuel treatment wouldn't hurt at this point either.

spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, or fuel pump might be getting ready to go. maybe a vacuum leak, hook it up to a vacuum gauge and see if the needle is steady, or take it to autozone and have them run a OBD test. I think its free at autozone.
