Question about 2004 Suzuki Forenza
When trying to start my '04 Suzuki Forenza it acts like it doesn't want to turn over. It's acts like it wants to die instead of turn over. What could be the problem? Also when driving the RPM's just all of a sudden drop completely and the whole car shuts off for a split second and then comes back on. Throughout the scenerio of things the only indicator light that comes on is the SSPS light which indicates to the sensitive steering, what could be causing this problem? Could it be a simple fix instead of having to take it into the "dealership" to check it out like the maintenance and repair manual says?

Several things can cause a car to die. The fact that you don't have any engine codes eliminates some of them. First thing you should try if you haven't is change the fuel filter. Make sure there are no damp, or damaged electrical components. It could be faulty spark plugs, or wires, or a vacuum leak. Check carefully under the hood for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all the vacuum hoses around and check for cracked loose or broken hoses. They will make a hissing sound when you find it. A stethoscope, or a length of fuel line held to your ear can help a lot. Check all intake bolts for tightness too. Good luck.

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.

Check if the kill switch is engaged. Check for faulty starter solenoid or disconnected solenoid wire. Check for defective ignition switch. Check for defective starter motor.

When my SSPS came on (same kind of thing...it'd come on and stay on for a while, then not come on at next startup) I took it in to replace my power steering fluid. Hasn't come on since.
