Check the cable clearance. Too much clearance will cause clutch slippage or total clutch disengagement. Adjust the cable so that the clutch pedal will be hard to press by hand .5 to .75 inch from its initial point.

I had the same problem with my 2006 Forenza - the problem was the transmission range sensor. If you look under the hood, on the drivers side, you'll see your trans. cable connected to a round part that also has an electrical cable coming from it. That is it. Part costs $36.07 at oemsuzukiparts.com (search for Neutral safety switch in the mechanical catalog).

No, standard thread. Turn anticlockwise to undo. That bolt will be VERY tight, and make sure it is done up VERY tight when you put it back together. I recommend a drop of thread lock to avoid it coming loose later on. This bolt doesn't need to be removed to change the timing belt, but it does if you want to change the front crank seal.
