If the car is running that bad the check engine light should be on and code/s stored in the pcm along with a snapshot of what is going on at the time the code is set. A possible solution is to check the Mass Airflow Sensor or the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor depending on which your vehicle is equipped with. The engine may run until the engine computer switches to closed loop fuel control (means its warmed up and the pcm is in control of the fuel trim) and then stall upon accel. Be sure you have checked all the basics first.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 suzuki forenza..
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.

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.

Hello tdxflygirl: My name is Roger and I will give you some helpful information. All these things may be wrong but repair as you money allows. The main leak I would be worried about is the leak behind the timing belt cover. Your timing belt does not work well with oil. Oil will break down the composition of the belt. You did not say which motor you have in your vehicle so I assume it is a 1.6l. engine. As for the valve cover they usually seep more than out right leak. There is no pressure on them like the camshaft and crankshaft seals. The distributor seal does have oil pressure on it but should be inexpensive to repair.The ripped intake boot I am not quite sure which one you are talking about. This could be a grommet or a boot. If this is boot it could create a vacuum leak and cause the check engine light to come on. The housing you are talking about I am not sure of. As I can not find a good picture of any housing in the repair manual. As for the plug wires They will become oil soaked over a period of time. This will short them out and cause a misfire in the engine. I would recommend getting a second opinion before spending a lot of money an repairs. Also have them prioritize the repairs as to what should be done first and do them a little at a time. Shops are like everyone else. Times are not all that great. They would love to do this all at once. But a small job here and there add up also. Should you nee further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya Roger

Testimonial: "JX is 1.6L engine. Timing belt is 2yr new. Check engine lt. code read:EGR system, so boot WAS the problem? 3-4 drops/oil drips daily, nothing massive."
make sure when you're cleaning the mating surface on the head not to let anything drop in the the head itself otherwise you will have more probs than an oil leak
